It can be inconvenient to spell out your @proton.me or @protonmail.com email address when sharing it with others. We’ve created short domain email addresses (@pm.me) to simplify this process.
For example, if your username is john, you can activate email@example.com to complement your existing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com address. All users can receive emails at their @pm.me email address, but sending emails from a @pm.me email address requires a paid account.
When you activate your @pm.me address, it doesn’t count toward your account limit for creating multiple addresses. However, paid users can also create additional addresses using the @pm.me domain, which will count toward your limit.
Note that the short domain address (@pm.me) linked to your username cannot be disabled or deleted.
Activating your @pm.me address
To activate your @pm.me address, log in to your Proton Account at account.proton.me(new window) and click Settings → Go to settings → Proton Mail → Messages and composing → Short domain → Activate firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sending a @pm.me email with a paid plan
1. To send an email from your @pm.me address, click the New message button to open your email composer.
2. Select your @pm.me address from the dropdown options in the From field.
Sending a @pm.me email with a Free plan
If you have a Free plan, you can receive emails at your @pm.me address, but your replies will be sent from one of your other free personal addresses by default (@proton.me, @protonmail.com, or @protonmail.ch).
To send messages from your @pm.me address, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid plan.
