    In addition to the list below, are the features listed on the chart for the free version or the paid version of the services?

    Possible features to add to the chart.
    1. Ads - yes or no.
    2. Aliases - yes or no & if yes how many?
    3. Terminated if inactive for x amount of time.
    4. Java script - yes or no.
    5. Attachments - yes or no & if yes size limit.
    6. "Disposable Email addresses" (plural) is listed on the chart but how many?

    It is the features of the most basic possible account for the service. All are free except LuxSci that doesn't have a free offering.

    Has the forum considered adding more e mail providers to the comparison chart.

    Yes, I have a few more I want to get in there. I'm working on gathering the details.

    I'm also waiting on an update for the software the pages are using that will better support more columns and mobile visitors.

    Do you think that's a good idea? Maybe Tutanota is right.

    What happens if you create an alias, delete it, and then someone else creates it later?

    Should there be a blackout period of at least 12 months before someone else can claim the alias or create an account with that username?

    What are the odds of someone else of creating the exact same 1.If Tutanota is correct than the other e mail providers are incorrect for having the option to delete?

    What would happen if one created an e mail...123abc at e mail provider then deleted it & by some fluke someone else creates the same 1.Would both parties receive e mail from the same e mail addy,even if the original e mail creator deleted it?

    A blackout window would be a good idea,can't do any harm.

    I should have labeled post # 3 as number 7 to the list.

    #8....I noticed not all e mail providers show how much storage space is left.e.g.,if the storage space is 1GB it doesn't show that there is 1MB left.

    Maybe list which e mail providers offer "auto saves" contacts by enable/disable.

    Tutanota & Scrypt doesn't while Proton does.

    I started a row for "autosave contacts"

    It depends on the name. There are plenty of popular names and dictionary words that would quickly get reused. I'd think it's best to blackout any deleted alias names for at least a year.

    It still exists but it removed from the list because it's empty. When we get some useful content in it I'll make the link visible again.

    From their web site...

    I think in the chart the word used to be 'comparison",but now it is labeled "compare",grammar is not my forte,but should it be comparative.

    It makes links come out like this: Compare - Encrypted Email Plugins & Addons

    If someone good with wordpress can help make page display and the link better without one making the other worse I'm happy to take suggestions :)

    from your Tutanota account?

    Does it matter which web browser you are using?
