Ratings and Reviews
Very good product
I narrowed my choices down to Tutanota and ProtonMail. Both are very good, but since Tutanota has the ability to do an index search through all my mailboxes (inbox, sent, trash, etc) to find older emails, I chose Tutanota. (ProtonMail not having the search feature was a deal-breaker for me).
The only areas for potential improvement I’ve experienced is 1) the longer wait-time it takes just to open the app on my phone (ProtonMail is much faster in that regard). 2) would be nice to auto-enable “show images in this email” rather than having to click “show” on every message manually.
But seriously, for what you get for free, it’s great. The 2 opportunities for improvement I listed above are the only things keeping me from switching to a paid-user subscription plan, and I’m guessing that will happen in time.

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, both is already planned, stay tuned!
Definitely needs improvements
I normally don’t write reviews but i felt that it was time to share my voice on Tutanota. First of all, I do love the fact that it’s a secure email however there are some flaws. First, I’d like to point out that when I get email on Tutanota, the app shows a number 1 on my iPhone regardless if I have 1 email or 20. I would love to see this issue get fixed.
Secondly, when you are on the Tutanota app, if you slide an email to the left, it should allow you to delete it. Sometimes when I slide emails that I no longer want to the left, it “bounces” back and I have to try again until the email deletes. This is rather annoying.
Thirdly, there is no option to “search your email”. For better organizing and storage, it would be truly helpful to search your messages by sender, message phrases, etc, especially when you are paying Tutanota to have an entire gigabyte of email, which to some people is a lot of mail.
Fourthly, in the spam folder, i have to move some emails to the inbox. Tutanota does not give me an option that I have seen to declare them as a “safe email” or “not spam”.
I really like having a secure email and I do like Tutanota. I just know that they could seriously improve their service, get rid of the bugs and add some good features to make things easier on their customers and users. That is why I gave Tutanota 3 stars.

Great Email Client!
I’ve had a great experience with Tutanota (Email Client) and with their support team when I had a couple of questions. They offered me a private/secure way to use my email and that’s what I got when I switched. My email is way less cluttered with junk from ads etc. Do they have a ton of features compared to their competitors (Google, Microsoft, etc)? No, but they also haven’t been around near as long as their competitors, have a much smaller customer base currently, and they’re definitely improving things and adding new features so you can get the same experience but with the ability to keep your privacy. I’m very pleased with my experience so far!

Thanks you very much for your feedback! :) Let us know what is still missing to reach five stars.
