Protonmail Sucks

All I’m saying is that ene-to-end encryption doesn’t do any good if your service drops every fifth email.

I worry about this too. I'm sure there are better alternatives, any suggestions?

If you are talking about end-to-end, you must mean between two proton mail users. Are you saying those are getting lost?

Yeah. It’s happened twice now. I’ve heard of it happening to other folks as well.

Yes Proton sucks. I think its a good idea and with proper investment and development it could be something really nice but right now it's not. I got a protonmail address since a few companions were insisting on using just that for communication when all the SESTA crap started. Now I'm back to using my Gmail accounts.

End to end encrypted or not, you really should not be saying "incriminating" things in your emails. Think about it, it doesn't matter how well encrypted the emails are if LE or some other nefarious actor gets a hold of one parties phone with a signed in ProtonMail app. Plus how many people truly use an entirely different password for their ProtonMail accounts? So if a significant other or someone else with either the knowledge or the ability to use social engineering to get the needed knowledge figuring out a person's password may not be all that hard.

I think I have the problem where ProtonMail occasionally drops the body of my email which I solved by putting my responses in the subject line.
I do have a Gmail, but I think that the US based email companions are forced to allow a government agency to scan the emails. And forced to not tell its users. Check out the news when it was found out that yahoo allowed government surveillance : https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reu ... SKCN1241YT
Yahoo's reply was essentially that it's a law abiding company.
Yes I'm a small fish compared to all the other threats the government is looking for, but you never know what kind of environment the future holds.

Random note about subject lines... On protonmail, that detail is not part of end-to-end encryption. Only the body of the message is fully encrypted.

The email may still be hard to reach, with Swiss courts or whatever.

I have been a ProtonMail Plus member for a couple of years.

In early April, I received notice that my subscription was up. I pay in cash, as they don't take Money Orders, around April 15th.

Either my cash got taken or they are behind because of Corona because I am now locked out.
I really like the VPN and I use it with TOR but now I'm stuck.

I sent them money over a month ago. I emailed them from another account. Nothing...

I think somebody took my cash. :evil:

I use the free version and don't have any issues. Its limited capabilities still suits my needs.

One lady using safeoffice claimed to have had issues with protonmail, but I didn't have any problems with another lady using safeoffice. So it makes me wonder what was actually the issue with the 1st one.

I just found that a bunch of messages from a regular all went to spam. The messages were fine before, guess they changed their filter criteria.

I also just have the free Proton account.I remember a few years ago seeing some ladies complain about problems between SafeOffice and ProtonMail, maybe it was an issue that was worked out. I still have my Proton account but still find it clunky. I can't say I've had problems with it but it still not as easy to use as Gmail. I've continued to use Gmail as my primary email for fun and keep the Proton for those ladies who might insist on it.

Same here - but I have given that out to very very few people. I use a gmail account as my public email account, and let Google worry about spam filtering...

Update...

on June 23 I get an email from Protonmail that said they Finally got my money. 2 Months after I sent it. My Protonmail account has been reinstated for a year.

Not sure if it went over via ship or what but when my dad would send letters from Vietnam it only take 3 weeks or so.

You sent it via Pandemic Mail.

I use protonmail but I do pay for the upgraded version. The only issue I seem to deal with on occasion is when trying to access emails from the phone app sometimes the new emails are delayed with going to my inbox.
