People like that won't be convinced though. Their favorite ProtonMail doesn't even support mail clients, stores metadata forever, admits to direct surveillance, redirects their onion domain to clearnet (lol), and requires either SMS confirmation, a donation, or a secondary unprivate email to signup (Riseup is blocked for example). Reddit isn't a good place for privacy discussion or advice (learned the hard way). Disroot should focus on itself.
I didn't start this thread to discuss why protonmail is bad, why so much
And also, since we can download the e-mails to our mail client, it shouldn't even matter if Disroot stores them unencrypted. How fast does the deletion of e-mails from the server happen? Is it possible to make it do that immediately after downloading?
I guess disroot does weekly (?) backups which will have your emails if
not deleted. afaik the server doesn't deletes emails when downloaded
with pop, the client has to send delete flags after downloading them.
