! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.

When will the linux bridge available for Linux? And opensource? I have a premium protonmail account and can't really use it on my laptop.

@dada @carl @protonmail Still quite slow and self-certs are really a pain in the ass (you CAN have valid certs for local use).

@tcit @protonmail
So I tried to setup the bridge, and sadly it doesn't work completely, I can send message, but only some IMAP folder are synchronized. For example, I can only look at the 'sent' and 'Archive' folder but not the' All Mail' folder.

@tcit @protonmail Using the AUR package (version and KMail

@carl @protonmail Yeah, had the kind of same experience. Good enough for me.

@carl We're currently investigating this issue and working on resolving it with one of our next updates for the Bridge app. Would you mind sending us your logs located in Bridge->Help->Logs so we can further look into this issue and see what is causing this error? Thank you in advance.

@protonmail @carl I also had problems this morning. After some days with a correct behaviour, today I was adviced from a new version (v1.1.1 I think). I don't know why, but now the interface was blown out. Thank you in advance.

@protonmail your service is really good btw

i have pretty much switched all my steam accounts and everything over to protonmail

i think the fact that you make payment optional for basic users is what i like as i don't need email for complex stuff just the basics

@codythedragonrude We are happy to hear this! Thanks for the support, it really means a lot to us.

@protonmail hey! Welcome to fediverse!! Great to see you here!

@protonmail I haven't looked at it in a while, but do you plan to one day free and «decentralize» the proton server components ? Because right now you're just anothe silo. Better than most, because crypto, but still a silo.

@RLetot This might not be possible for everything, but there are definitely some parts of the service that can be decentralized and we are actively looking into that.

Great, eagerly waiting for a free decentralized proton server 😃

@protonmail welcome from a reasonably happy customer :-)

Any update on this? Now I recognize that the linux desktop is a small demographic, but consider it might comprise of self-selected privacy fans :-)

"The #ProtonMail Bridge application for Linux is currently in open beta. The full version is scheduled for release later in 2018"

@grumpy_developer Hi! We are currently working on the official release for the Bridge app.
If everything goes well with our testing, we plan to release it later this year. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

@protonmail @fdroidorg

Hi, Protonmail Plus user here, and I'd like an answer to this too. I don't need push notifications, and the way things are set up now I still need a Google account to use your mail (unless I feel like shelling out for, and putting up with, an iPhone). Tutanota has an fdroid app and for that reason alone I'm considering switching.

@farlopito @protonmail @fdroidorg

Really, you don't even *have* to put it on fdroid. You could make the apk directly downloadable. Just give those of us trying to deGooglify a legitimate option. I'd really, genuinely rather not have to switch emails again, so *please* give this issue some thought.

@polyplacophora @farlopito @fdroidorg Hi! Thank you for supporting us with a paid account. It means a lot. The process of publishing our app on F-droid has already started. We need to make a few steps before doing this. In the next couple of months it should be done. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

@protonmail @polyplacophora @farlopito @fdroidorg Wow, that would be a huge plus for me as well. Almost no non opensource apps on my phone.
#Hope #Soon

That's great news! Hopefully we can get rid of the Google Play Services dependency.

@farlopito @protonmail @fdroidorg No dependency on Google Play Services would be already very rad if you ask me. This being one of the main reasons I point people in @Tutanota direction nowadays.


At the very least drop the dependency on googleplay services so that us #LineageOS users dont have to see the nag dialog every time we run the app.

@protonmail @fdroidorg

@protonmail hey! Welcome aboard and thanks for your great service! but unfortunately protonmail server itself is not open source itself
Do it

@protonmail it’s the fediverse… not the _mastodon network_™

(funny enough you wouldn’t see the added emphasis in this post because mastodon really hates rich text)

Really cool to see you here! I was one of the initial round of crowd funders; been using it ever since. :)

@Lingondraken 👋 Thanks for supporting us with a paid plan! It helps us improve and grow Protonmail.

I am actually on the free plan, but I was in, and found you through the IndieGoGo campaign!

@protonmail I seriously hope you guys start taking the privacy aspect seriously enough and focus on open sourcing the apps you've built.
Praying every day to see those F-droid/FOSS announcements soon 'cause I really like the service and wouldn't want to make another move.

Either way, a warm welcome to the fediverse.
