the good news is that protonmail has a free option and the unofficial desktop application works well with tde. the bad news is that to store mail on the local machine something like the protonmail bridge is needed; otherwise, it is a kind of webmail interface (even in the desktop version) and needs a secur browser to use. it's fine, for instance, with tor. also, it either doesn't allow or makes difficult anythig but top posting, for which i apologize.

i have one of the paid programs, because i wanted to move the mail from a domain i own to protonmail.

(I have found speedcrunch to be a problem on my system, for example, but now I forget why.) It doesn't seem to have uninstalled desktop-core-trinity, but I do recognize a lot of those items as oft-used, if not strictly essential packages. There ought to be a workaround to get qt5 dependencies installed; if not, put in a request for Slavek or whoever to create them. I requested some packages (tork-trinity and kshowmail-trinity) a few years ago, and they were created in a few days, and have worked great ever since. Also, I would like to switch to ProtonMail or something similar, but have had problems registering for an account. As I recall, it kept rejecting my connection; also, I can't remember if they offer free accounts, or only paid accounts. So I am interested to hear your progress in getting ProtonMail to work with something like Kmail or Claws.
