    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 agree with Emile Pesik.
    Tuta is great in terms of pricing, easy selection of features, custom domain support and catchall, lots of aliases, now even with a calendar!

    but its not interoperable with other services which is why i can't switch. this missing feature stops me from switching to you from proton although i like that you have a calendar, support u2f, have all your stuff open source and seem to generally be the faster and more flexible company.
    adding easy pgp support for external recipients would bring you lots of customers that are still holding off from creating an account with you because of that walled garden. sure your own encryption is better in terms of privacy inside tuta but the world won't just switch to your encryption so for external stuff pgp is needed as biggest standard out there.

    and it would be an easy solution to the "make tuta interoperable with other secure mail services" request: https://tutanota.uservoice.com/forums/237921-general/suggestions/7018829-interaction-with-other-secure-email-providers

    two birds with one stone... ;)

    >@Tin Man: We will make Tutanota interoperable! But not based on classic PGP...

    so basicly you will invent yet another "standard" to write to people outside of tutanota? Sure PGP is not perfect but its the biggest and most used standard yet.

    This won't solve the "island"/walled garden problem.

    L is right here. if proton in not open to the idea i suggest implementing an easy way to solve this from your end would be to creat a field for a pgp key in contacts and autoencrypt all mails if a contact has a key in that field. this would work with most external contacts that use secure providers and would be better than the "send unencrypted" that is in place right now.

    and it would solve 2 open threads in here at the same time as well as open up the walled garden you have build for yourself - which is stoping people from coming over to you.

    yes your internat encryption is better than pgp but if no other provider is using it it puts you in a corner where its only really usefull if all your friends use tuta - which they sadly don't because not all their friends use tuta. negative feedbackloop as long as tuta is walled off.
