Encrypted Cloud Storage
An online drive (like DropBox, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.) that is linked to your email for storing documents, pictures, etc.
This is an awesome idea.
I will still be using the Tutanota mailbox even if there are no additional services developed.
Design, simplicity, features - I love it :)

That would be amazing
I think that would be great addition to an already awesome service. I will be more than willing to pay for a reliable, secure storage space.
Would be awesome to have a serious European all-in-one alternative to less trustworthy US companies, since not even their European satelites are safe for the all-american law and No Spy Agency.
That would be amazing
I second the idea for encrypted cloud storage. Runbox (which is also secure) has a "Files" link to upload/store files (in folders), which I have found useful.
Also, if there was a way for users to adjust the font, that would be helpful. Tutanota's (default) medium-large font is fine, but it would be nice to have smaller fonts to read larger/longer e-mails.
Our right to privacy given to us by the constitution has been incrementally stepped on and ignored..illegally taken from us by government and daily interaction with police. Edmund Burke; Bad laws are the worst sort of tyranny. The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion. All that is needed for the triumph of evil is for enough good men to do nothing. So yes, I am in favor to our right of privacy in all forms of communication without government watching and listening.

Bonjour oui pour un cloud crypte securisé et faire de tutanota un puissant comme google mais sécurisé, je n ai pqs les moyens pour l instant mais je vous soutiendrais financiérement des que possible bon developpement et longue vie a Tutanota
As you may already know, the current providers of encrypted cloud storage suffer from the deficiency of not providing open-source encryption. Wuala was one (they're closing up, for unspecified reasons), and their customer base is being encouraged to switch to Tresorit, which touts that their encryption has never been hacked, despite a $50,000 reward. But that's kind of immaterial since, with no independent audit, there's no assurance the encryption engine itself wasn't written with a back door to the NSA (or whoever), so the whole thing fails miserably in the crucial element of trust. As far as I know, if you stepped in with your open-source code, you'd have a corner on the market for cloud storage. Go for it!
Please! I would love for Tutanota to have encrypted cloud storage without having to install any new software. Don't trust Microsoft for storing my files as far as I can throw them!

I would agree that the email client needs to be made more user friendly and we as users need to have better organizational abilities within our clients so we can find things. I think that the suggestion for a partnership with Mega sounds like a fantastic idea. It is really nice to have a unified solution that allows for a one stop shop.
I would submit one thought: developing perfect security is a falsehood. Good security is possible, but perfect security will never happen. To say that Tutanota should get their email security perfect before adding other features would make it impossible to ever move beyond email security at all. There has to be a way to multitask the development or we will never get out of the stone age.

yes, please add owncloud for combined usage. owncloud 8.1 supports online editing and can be connected to other file storage services like dropbox (to my knowledge not yet oaktree nor MEGA :( )

For me, one of the greatest features of OwnCloud is the WebDAV access. It is simple, cross platform, and usually doesn’t require any third party software, at least on most Linux/OS X/Windows installations.
I suggest you make WebDAV access the second step and the native integration with local file systems the third step.
Thanks for making awesome software!
Not right now! Do one thing right instead of two things only mediocre. Focus *soley* on the email for now. Once it is as close to perfect as possible, then branch out.
I agree with Docomila. Concentrate on tutanota e-mail (make the interface a bit more user friendly etc). In the mean time we can all use mega.co.nz cloud storage as it gives 50Gb with e2e encryption. That said, the two of you would make an epic team together
This would be cool
Isn't SpiderOak promissed to go open source?
cloud storage is trending nowadays.
and archiving/backup emails
This is wonderful for storage. But email is for communication and the two disciplines are mutually exclusive. One does not depend on the other. I would prioritize maximizing a feature set for the email client first then worry about cloud storage and calendars later. My two cents.
