    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…

    L - Great post! If all that's stopping Tutanota from incorporating PGP is an encrypted subject header then I'm happy to forgo that and just have a subject of "hello" or something meaningless. I'm also more than happy to encrypt my own attachments if that's another show stopper.

    Yes, it's the only thing that's stopping taking out an annual subscription. I need to be able to import public keys from other PGP services like Mailvelope and export my tutanota public key to give it to people using other PGP email systems. If I'm forced to use Mailvelope with tutanota then the advantage of Tutanota is reduced and I may as well use Mailvelope with a mail service that has greater functionality like GMX mail etc. The alternative is to try and persuade all my contacts to switch to tutanota which will never happen.

    I agree with Greg (Nov 17, 2016) and would prefer to see your core offering i.e. encrypted mail further developed to include the most popular features requested such as PGP integration rather than starting an encrypted file storage project as useful as it might be. If I want to store files on-line then I encrypt them myself to ensure security rather than trust Mega or whoever.

    I can create folders in the web app already. Maybe you are referring to the iPhone app which doesn't seem to support the folders I have using web client.
