@boilingsteam Could you please bump up the 14px font size in your articles to something more comfortable to read like 18px?

@Tutanota any plans on doubling the storage on Premium accounts? €1/mo. gets me 5 GB from Mailbox.org and others, so 1 GB doesn't feel like a good deal.

The sandbox isolation on the holodeck in Star Trek is terrible. How can the characters be allowed to gain privileged escalation and escape and in every other episode?

I regularly see phishing campaign warnings in national media. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the URLs they report on have been reported to Microsoft SmartScreen, Google Safe Browsing, or Netcraft Anti-Phishing. They could actually report them and help keep people safe; but instead they just write pointless articles about ongoing threats.

Who designs a URLs scheme that includes quotation marks? Why not simply use opening gun-eomji and closing foot-emoji instead?

Have anyone here migrated from FastMail to Mailbox.org? Mailbox has the same features as FastMail + Exchange support, European hosting, and it costs a fraction of FastMail’s rates. I’ve considered GandiMail as I’ve got my domains there and it’s free, but probably shouldn’t combine email hosting and domain name services for better security.

Dear designers: Contrast first. Stupid light-grey-text-on-white-background-design second.
