Create a desktop application for OS X, Linux, and Windows
Just signed up and -love- the service and simplicity. Very well done, guys!
I have a strong desire to have the SAME application for e-mail on Windows, OS X and Linux, as well as my iPhone and Android devices. I know that's a lot of platforms to support, but if you were able to leverage some of the code behind GitHub's Atom editor (github.com/atom/atom), you might be able to bring a desktop client out for OS X/Windows/Linux much more quickly by leveraging your existing web app.
All things considered however, this is a great service that I really like. Way to go!
The desktop client has been released as beta:
This, or as Jose mentioned, a connector (as a plugin, program or whatever) this way we could be able to use thunderbird, evolution, outlook, claws or another MUA.
Why isn't it here yet???
when cloud storage or this comes out, I will join in gladly. and pay for pro.
I will pay 24$ a year if i can get both. :) 2gb of cloud + cross platform compatibility. (debian/ubuntu support especially.
I have been holding out for this feature, when it is offered I will go Premium.

very important for me
yeah, should be a standard feature. at latest if it comes to premium.
I also would like to support the idea of a kind of plugin for common mail clients. This would integrate the emails in other workflows and apps like Spotlight.

If everybody donate 10 USD, we can help to developers.
A must have feature.
Although I appreciate the idea, isn't using a privacy considering email provider on "Big Slurp" OS's a bit silly? Especially if you then potentially facilitate the slurp by using a native application. Cortana/ Siri, please read to my private email to me...
definitely supporting osx platform will be great . I would prefer to avoid any connection to Mail or any 3party soft as Mail,Outlook or whatever ...
Better than writing a complete mail client, wouldn't it be easeir to write some kind of plugin that works on the main mail clients of various OS? Besides, couldn't be established some kind of norms, of standards fo these new secure email services like you, Protonmal, Startmail, etc so mail clients could jut follow those standards to make themselves compatible with secure mail? It's a pain, all these incompatiblities; email should be universal, easy, not like instant messengers, each incompatible with the others, but sadly you are making it that way.
Please, talk among yourselves, try to reach agreements in regard to protocols, standards. We should be able to send encrypted mails to every encrypted mal provider user in the world in an easy manner, not with those stilted methods we need to use actually.
Your suggestion is related to this suggestion:
I would ask for a connector (as a plugin, program or whatever) this way we could be able to use thunderbird, evolution, outlook, claws or another MUA.
I don't know if it is possible opening a port using a firefox/chrome plugin, but a connector using a browser plugin could be VERY VERY handy.

Yes, it's a great idea... but, developer it cost very much
but, we can all pay development
The foss community would be very grateful if you had a client available for Linux.
