Encrypted communications with your friends, business partners, and clients without ProtonMail accounts is now easier than ever. Any recipient of your password-encrypted message can reply within the same conversation without needing a ProtonMail account. They can simply click ‘Reply Securely’ after accessing the password protected message you send them and the reply will be delivered to your ProtonMail account, with full end-to-end encryption.

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.
