    There is a philosophy of software that has withstood the test of time. And that is to do ONE thing and do it amazingly well.

    You want a single piece of software to do everything imaginable including make you breakfast? Rest assured every feature will have some problem, incompatibility or inadequacy, and your breakfast *will* be cold.

    I guarantee that if you stop looking for that one product that does everything, and instead searching for an office suite that does a fine job of being an office suite (have you heard of LibreOffice?) a calendar project that does an amazing job with everything you need from a calendar, and secure file storage by people who are experts at that, you will find your digital life a lot more productive and with a lot less headaches.

    In my opinion, the best way Protonmail can rival insecure email providers, is to do a rock solid job of providing a flawless email product.

    The more features that get added to a piece of software, the poorer each feature becomes. Protonmail, as I understand it, has the goal of providing privacy-oriented email service, and doing an amazing job at it.

    If they start throwing in documents, spreadsheets, presentations, make you breakfast each morning... than each of those features will not be as good as a project whose job is to do that particular thing - and do it well.

    Have you tried LibreOffice? That project is doing a great job of making office software that you can use to send compatible documents to users of Microsoft Office or (yuck!) Google Documents.

    I currently see my email in my local timezone. I don't remember if I specifically selected that when creating my account, or if it automatically adjusts the time based on my OS or web browser's time zone. However I can confirm that there is no visible setting that allows the user to change this in the Protonmail user interface.

    I don't think you understand how severely that would destroy the privacy offered by Protonmail.

    I do understand that you want a common account to log in to various sites, and that is a valid request considering the market dominance of Google and Facebook. But Protonmail is NOT the appropriate service to provide common logins. I know that there are some authentication providers out there, but I have not looked recently. I heard about OpenID, but I also vaguely recall that the service was discontinued or became unreliable.

    Anyway, please try to learn more about on-line privacy and the different ways that you can jeopardize it without realizing.

    This website (uservoice.com) is based on voting for 1 feature per post. You will need to locate the current top-voted requests that already exist for some of the items on your list, add your own vote (1 to 3 votes per item as you wish to spend yours) and then add the remainder separately as new requests, if any have not already been requested.

    I didn't decide that they should do it this way, I am just letting you know how to get your well-thought-out requests the best chance of being implemented.

    There is a Drafts folder for emails which are not yet sent.

    Otherwise what you are trying to do is cross over task management with an email inbox, and my personal experience is that will cause you more headaches in the long run than just using the proper software for managing your to-do items.

    If you can find me a privacy-oriented email provider with servers buried 1000 feet under the Swiss alps for cheaper, I'll switch! :)

    You can't rescue people from a burning building (i.e. Facebook) without going in there yourself. Just remember to wear a fireproof suit!

    Protonmail doesn't want to encourage people to start using Facebook, but they do want to reach them in order to give them a chance at reclaiming their privacy.

    Also, Google is only to a "lesser extent" because they somehow managed to avoid scandals like Facebook has been drowning in. Their time will come, and when it does I predict the scandals will be even uglier (Is a Google Home lurking in your home yet?).

    I am currently running my own email server since I started my boycott of Gmail and Google services.

    The fact that emails sent using SMTP on port 25 are transmitted in cleartext is the biggest privacy concern for email transmission, no matter how secure the server is which stores the emails before and after they are sent.

    I have no doubt that protonmail developers are aware of this. I just don't know what they have accomplished so far regarding the relay of email to 3rd party servers, like Hotmail or Gmail.

    I will need to read about this for both my server and protonmail, thank you for mentioning this and the related RFC. Bookmarked.

    Spell check isn't actually a feature of the email protocol. However, my Firefox web browser does automatically check spelling in each textbox that I type into, so perhaps your browser will do the same for you?

    "There is no free lunch." The online landscape is rigged to hide this, and people who have begun to expect "free" everything online will either discover the truth the easy way, or the hard way...

    My choice about email is whether to continue renting my own server for $5/month, or to pay a service like Protonmail. I have awakened to the truth that on the Internet, you pay with currency, or you pay with your soul, essentially. Your choice.

    The original poster clearly failed to do their research. Everything they want is already available in other projects that are doing a fine job. "Proton browser" is not needed nor worth the effort.
