Encrypted communications with your friends, business partners, and clients without Proton Mail accounts is now easier than ever. Any recipient of your password-encrypted message can reply within the same conversation without needing a Proton Mail account. They can simply click ‘Reply Securely’ after accessing the password protected message you send them and the reply will be delivered to your Proton Mail account, with full end-to-end encryption.

We also added a new quick compose feature that allows you directly compose a new email to any recipient you see in your current message. Simply click their email address and click [Compose Email To] to draft a new message.
