I now realize the phenomenal lock-in from protonmail as I can't redirect emails from my proton addresses to other providers

@angristan that’s really odd to me, is there a benefit to that?

@uoya they say they can’t because everything is encrypted

Do yo mean that once the emails reaches their server, they are encrypted and can only be decrypted by the email client which owns the private key? If it's designed like then if makes sens. Or the mail could be fowarded in encrypted form…

I guess they would not want that because it would weaken their security model (identity thiefs added redirection rules on gmail account without the owner noticing)

@Fabimaru @uoya that’s not very convincing, if someone accesses your account, the security model is over
