New Features Summary

Custom Spam Filters

Spam Filtering(new window)

Spam is the least desirable side effect of owning an email account. Spam filtering is a particularly challenging problem when it comes to end-to-end encrypted email because we don’t have the ability to read emails. Proton Mail utilizes a number of techniques to automatically detect and filter spam messages. However, when it comes to spam, there isn’t a one size fits all solution, and it may be some necessary fine tuning on a per account basis to get the filtering just right. With Spam Filters, you can now create your own unique whitelist and blacklist to ensure your mail is automatically delivered into your inbox and spam folder correctly. You can learn more about this feature here.


Improved Labels

How to quickly organize your Proton Mail inbox with labels(new window)

In version 3.2, we also improved labels to make them easier to use. The first improvement is that in the labels menu, the state of the ‘Also archive’ is now saved. Thus, for users that always use the Also archive functionality, there is no need to re-check it every single time.

Secondly, we added a quick label functionality. If you click on the left side icons shown above, you can directly apply a single label without clicking the check boxes or clicking apply. This saves one click when applying a label. If Also archive is turned on, using the quick label functionality will also archive that conversation.
