Superior product. I chose Tutanota Mail because compared to the others they had all the features I needed. I really like the standalone apps for both Android and Windows. I think one of the key factors for choosing Tutanota over others is the company's culture. They are not made up of a large conglomerate, but a group of dedicated professionals wanting to provide privacy and security to others. I felt I could get behind that effort. Great product and features.

1/26/24 Update: My account (Premium/Revolutionary, $72/yr) has had an issue where calendar locks up on all platforms and I have to log in each event entered. Over a month now of emails with Support explaining the same thing over and over no resolution. This is not premium support. I like the concept and the service when it works. Fuctionality is less than you would experience elsewhere. I would work with this if it functioned as advertised, and had timely helpful support.

For a long time, this app had no issues but a number of updates in mid March & April 2024 have broken the app and the desktop client. Neither work now. March update gave an error message saying the user was "offline" despite having full bars or being connected to Wifi so mail could not be checked. Now, the error message is "The connection to the server is lost." Restarts and reinstalling do not help. It is sad to see a great app and client broken. :(
