    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…

    At the moment I am waiting for:

    a) tutanota supporting PGP
    or
    b) protonmail lowering its price to <30€ per year

    The first one who achieve this, will get my money. But at the moment I will stay with an traditional email provider and simply use PGP.
