  • I am having trouble adding contacts now. The name remains blank, and only e-mail address goes through. Same goes for editing existing contacts – no matter what I input, the name field does not display the name, but rather copies person’s e-mail address there.

    I will poke around, and if anything else comes up, I will let you know!

    Keep up the good work, guys! Loving Proton thus far!

    P.S. Firefox on Linux

  • And another one: ctrl-enter to send emails.

    And because my previous reply is still awaiting moderation: Import contact from Gmail.

    Hey and what about a calendar service 😉

  • Hello guys,

    It would also be great to have more fields on the contact list like Phone, mobile Phone, address,…. and so on.
