Short domain (@pm.me) email addresses

It can be inconvenient to spell out your @protonmail.com email address when sharing it with others. We’ve created short domain email addresses (@pm.me) to simplify this process.

All ProtonMail users, except those added as part of an organization, can activate a separate @pm.me email address at no cost. For example, if your username is john, you can activate john@pm.me to complement your existing john@protonmail.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 does not 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.

Creating your @pm.me address

1. Go to Settings at the top right and click on Go to settings.

Go to settings

2. Select General in the left sidebar. Under the General section, select Activate @pm.me.

Sending a @pm.me email for free users

Users with free accounts can receive emails at their @pm.me address, but replies will be sent from your @protonmail.com or @protonmail.ch address by default. To send messages from your @pm.me address, you will need to upgrade to a paid plan.
