    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.

    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.

    You know, since Protonmail does not want to become an official registrar of domains, they would need to outsource this to an existing registrar anyway.

    And so, what do you get from that, besides a (possibly) more expensive registration with a 3rd party registrar that you could have done yourself? You'll need to prove why this is worth the trouble if you want it to have any small chance of it happening.

    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.

    The feature "continuous scrolling," if I understand right, requires constantly loading more data - even if you don't read it.

    This will slow down your web browser and computer, and you will make all those people who are complaining that Protonmail is too slow, even angrier. You wouldn't want to do that, would you?

    I don't think that Protonmail is in the business of manufacturing things. They are more about software.

    If you aren't able to find a case that has this, just do what so many people already do and stick a piece of tape on the phone to cover the camera "hole".

    Maybe add a small piece of paper as a liner to prevent residue from the tape directly forming over the camera lens if you plan on using your phone's camera sometimes. (people who never use the webcam on their laptop don't care about residue when they tape it)

    I just checked this and you are right about the interface. It is rather awkward to try to start typing at the bottom because of the mandatory "Protonmail" signature(in the free plan) being appended at the top of the reply before you even start typing.

    However, I would tend to think that this would be best addressed by changing the theme of the interface, and this might possibly already be done (I haven't looked)

    Check it out, and if there isn't a way to do this by changing themes, I'll up-vote this, as I do participate in several old-school mailing lists. The last thing I need is more harassment from those particularly grumpy Debian people about my reply.

    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.

    The right way to report this is to send to abuse@protonmail.com

    How many members are in your family that would use this email? In the case of you and a spouse, you could purchase the "Plus" plan, and at the bottom it says you can get more addresses for the one user (which you two could share the login), which would only cost:
    " € 1.00 / month or € 9 / year per 5 addresses"

    And then you can set up free accounts for your kid(s) and don't have to feel bad as you are already paying them an amount you can afford.

    Prices are at https://protonmail.com/pricing

    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 sort by date in a search of your emails, you can then delete old ones in that view.

    To be honest, the only sure way to achieve this is to type the message locally, such as in notepad, or another program that saves every few seconds, and then when it is ready, copy and paste into the email interface. Because network connection errors can always cause data loss if you don't have your own copy.

    Or you can ask them to reply and say "I got it."

    Try clicking on empty white space and pretending you sent it. Works great for me. I catch mistakes really quickly if there are any, and then I actually send it.

    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 have to understand that emails are not actually connected to each other, and that protonmail is using a script to link all the *previous* emails into the same view as the one you are looking at.

    As somebody who has used many different email systems, and not just Gmail's interface, like most email users, I know that I can find my sent emails in the Sent folder, not the Inbox. It just makes sense.

    But hey, the Protonmail team is pretty cool so maybe they'll adjust the script to do that for you.
