Promising, but room for improvement

In general, this is a great alternative for someone seeking to break their connections to the “Googlesphere”. The document editor and calendar features aren’t quite at feature parity, but the frequent updates give me hope.

I found migrating from my personal (non-exchange/gmail) email server somewhat cumbersome, so I would hope the team adds some documentation there to make it easier to onboard. Fortunately, I was able to import EML files manually, but it took longer than I had hoped. Perhaps there’s an opportunity to enable uploading emails via ZIP instead of individually-exported emails.

Aside from this, I hope they permit the exportation of encryption keys and the adding of PGP signing in the future. Very good overall, with a competent team at the helm.

Love Skiff, their apps, and their approach to privacy

I was recently with a competitor of privacy related email services and was unhappy with the loading of apps, being logged out of apps, etc and was looking for another solution. I happened to find a comment on Reddit that mentioned Skiff. I decided to give the free tier a shot. 24 hours later I was all in, switched over my custom domain, and went all in with Skiff.
Their team is SUPER responsive and active on Reddit to answer questions, their apps open quickly and run smoothly, and I couldn't be happier with the ecosystem they are creating.
They are constantly rolling out updates and improving their product almost daily. You guys rock!

Great start

I’m a long time proton user since 2014 and Skiff is off to a great start. The apps feel very modern and polished. There are still some bugs (more with the desktop version) but doesn’t deter too much from the user experience. I paid for the year, and having unlimited aliases with your own domain is a plus. You can set catch-all, and if you need to respond, just create the corresponding aliases. For now, I’ll still use proton as my main personal email, but Skiff is my gsuite alternative with Pages. Wish it had more label colors. I usually use about 20 labels. Side note, wish calendar had the ability to label multiple calendars.
