    Question Protonmail email

    I have done a search for “protonmail” before posting this.

    I’m moving my email over to protonmail.com/pm.me. When I try to update my account here, the site says “The administrator has banned your email address. You will need to change your email address in order to continue. If you think this is done in error, please contact us.” The “contact us” link is dead.

    Is there any solution that lets me use my protonmail account with the site?

    Is that an email service that allows u to setup aliases and redirect to your real email acct?

    Logs show it was used and abused a fair bit several years ago by scammers.

    No, it's a swiss email provider that offers secure, encrypted emails. My main email is with them as well. You need to pay 6 Euros per month for the "@pm.me" domain, I doubt most spammers would do that.

    Will get that sorted and remove pm.me if it's banned.

    Don't care about spam.. Email providers and ip ranges / vpn providers popular with scammers are an issue.

    @dietevil - both proton and pm.me have been unblocked.
