    Thank you all for your feedback. Please let us explain in more detail why we don’t plan to add pgp-support at the moment:

    Current encryption standards like pgp and S/MIME have several issue that we plan to address with Tutanota. These standards do not support forward secrecy and are not resistant to attacks from quantum computers.

    In addition, it is important to us that the subject line in emails is also encrypted. That’s why we have developed a solution that is also based on recognized algorithms (RSA and AES) and that automatically encrypts the subject, the content and the attachments. In the future, we plan to upgrade these algorithms to quantum-resistant ones that also support forward secrecy.

    We also see the importance that Tutanota needs to be interoperable with other encryption solutions. We will develop an API so that Tutanota users can communicate with users of other…

    I am a premium user of tutanota since 2016. I understand all the arguments from tutanota but currently I am just using tutanota for a secure and encrypted mailbox in the cloud. None of my contacts so far have a secure mailbox and would not be happy to start reading my e-mails using a password on tutanota.com. As a results I am not able to use any of the encryption options. By default I am sending e-mails unencrypted. I do not like the fact that the only option left is unencrypted e-mails. I recently came across https://encrypt.to which is using pgp and which in my eyes is one little step further in bringing encryption and secure e-mail to the mass. However there is still a long way to go. Any initiative to be more open and support interoperability will help.

    Yes this is really a must have. I just signed up for premium today. Also is there a way to find out if some of my contacts are using tutanota or any other compatible secure client?
