    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…

    Well, ProtonMail already has my money, but sadly they don't multiple accounts in the same client. This brought me to Tutanota as I need separate email accounts on separate domains (which they don't support either!).

    ProtonMail offer full PGP support, and the ability to exchange encrypted messages with users on other services is essential.

    All a proprietary solution achieves is another walled garden, something we need fewer of, not more! Messenger only works between Facebook users, Facetime only works between Apple users, Hangouts (or whatever they change to _this_ time) only works between Google users, but encrypted emails work both between ProtonMail users and users on other services that emply OpenPGP.

    This, together with the lack of support for multiple accounts, means I will now have to reconsider signing up for a paid Tutanota account :-(

    Er, no, aliases is _not_ a solution to handling multiple email addresses. ProtonMail has exactly the same problem. I want to use multiple email addresses on _different_ domains.

    Because ProtonMail does not support multiple accounts in the same app either I'm forced to use an alternative secure mail provider for my other domains. This brought me to TutaNota, but now it transpires I have the same limitation here too.

    Regardless of whether you want multiple address on the same domain, or multiple addresses on different domains, it is a basic requirement to support multiple accounts in the same app.

    Gmail (shudder) has been doing it for years, and you can add as many regular email accounts as you want to email clients such as Thunderbird on the desktop or K-9 Mail on Android.

    The other issue with aliases is that when you use one address for business and another one for private messages, you do _not_ want those emails in the same inbox.

    So no, aliases are not an acceptable solution, no matter which way you turn it. Multiple account support is not a niche feature, it's basic functionality.

    It's crazy that in order to have 3 separate secure email addresses I need to have accounts with 3 separate providers, and have 3 separate apps installed to access my messages.
