We’re excited to showcase the variety of improvements we’ve made to encrypted messages to outside users and productivity in the Proton Mail inbox. As usual, if you encounter any problems, please clear your browser cache or log out and log back in. Here’s a quick introduction to the new features:

New Editor & Encrypted Reply for Outside Email Users

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.


New Outside Encrypted Email HTML Message Design

Have you seen our new HTML email design for outside encrypted messages? We’ve given this feature a fresh new look to compliment our new homepage design. Your friends can get to your secure message faster and more easily now with the button.


Email View Redesign & Quick Compose

This update also brings a new look to our email view page in your inbox. With this new design, we streamlined our button interface to make viewing your emails an even smoother experience. 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.


Quick Hotkey Shortcuts (Inbox only)

Now you can mark your messages as read or unread without clicking the button! Press [u], [r], or [s] on your keyboard while hovering over your emails to market messages as unread, read, or starred respectively. These new hotkeys make it even more convenient for you to organize your inbox.


Stay tuned for more updates!
