The current limit is 25MB. For large attachments, we suggest using a file upload service and send the link instead. You can find some file sharing services that respect our privacy on PrivacyTools
Another reason of having this limit is the PGP encryption is a heavy process, supporting a bigger size put an important load on SimpleLogin servers.
When an alias is deleted, it's put into a global trash and we make sure that it can't be reused. All historic information on the alias (the account that creates the alias, alias contacts, etc) are deleted to respect your privacy.
This applies to all aliases created with SimpleLogin domains.
You can however restore an alias created with your own domain.
Our PGP key for firstname.lastname@example.org can be downloaded here (fingerprint "BB03 4466 7D70 C5EC 30B5 A07C 704B 2826 4E7C A9E6"). It's also available on keys.openpgp.org
If you enable PGP, all emails are signed with email@example.com key which can be downloaded here (fingerprint "7961 6C8F 8E0A 05D1 340F FC20 4749 AAC8 4D4C 4810"). It's also available on keys.openpgp.org
At the bottom of the Settings page, you can delete your account. This operation is irreversible and we have no way to recover your data.
The short answer is yes you can. We use email aliases to run our business, manage our taxes, handle our bank operations and so far so good :).
A longer answer is the email protocol is designed to be highly resilient and an email is almost never lost. If SimpleLogin cannot deliver the email to your mailbox, we will notify you so you can take appropriate action. You can also set up a secondary mailbox in addition to your primary mailbox that can be used as a backup.
Un alias reçoit des mails et les redirige à votre "vraie" boîte mail (e.g. Gmail, Outlook, protonmail).
Grâce à la technologie de SimpleLogin, vous pouvez aussi envoyer des mails depuis an alias.
Pour votre correspondant, l'alias est votre adresse mail.
L'ajout de plus (+) est une forme simple d'alias e-mail.
Certes pratique, cette astuce a plusieurs inconvénients et ne protège pas vraiment votre privacy.
Nous avons écrit un article sur le sujet :).
Un alias est permanent, contrairement à une adresse mail temporaire qui est expiré après certain temps.
SimpleLogin ne stocke pas les mails et les simplement redirige à votre vraie boîte mail.
Nous utilisons UpCloud, un service cloud finlandais. Nos serveurs sont actuellement dans le datacenter de France-Allemande et Pays-Bas.
Questions pour les partenaires/développeurs
Do you know that Facebook and Google use these buttons to track
your users browsing history so that they can provide more personalized ads?
As SimpleLogin isn't fueled by advertising and gives users total control over their data, we don't have any incentive to utilize your user data.
All SimpleLogin code is fully open-source on Github
Anyone can freely audit the code or setup their own SimpleLogin server.
SimpleLogin revenue is based on a transparent and sustainable model that allows us to have a privacy-first and tracker-free product.
Yes absolutely! We started with the web platform simply because they can be used for mobile app as well via a Android WebView or IOS UIWebView.

Questions sur les offres
When your subscription ends, all aliases you created continue working normally, both on receiving and
sending emails. Concretely:
- All aliases/domains/directories/mailboxes you have created are kept and continue working normally.
- You cannot create new aliases if you exceed the free plan limit, i.e. have more than 15 aliases.
- As features like catch-all or directory allow you to create aliases on-the-fly, those aliases cannot be automatically created if you have more than 15 aliases.
- You cannot add new domain, directory or mailbox.
For example, if you have 100 aliases by the time your subscription ends, these 100 aliases will continue receiving and sending emails normally. You cannot however create new aliases.
If you are in the free plan, you cannot create new aliases when you reach the maximum number of aliases
(i.e. 15 aliases).
Aliases that would otherwise be created automatically via the catch-all domain or directory feature also cannot be created.
We offer students a premium license for free during the scholarship. Just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (PGP key here, fingerprint 3A80 CE3F 5142 CECD 51D9 BE90 EC6B B43C 5AA3 D706) from your school email (typically a .edu address) along with your SimpleLogin account so we can upgrade your account to 1 year of premium plan. If you don't have a school email address, a copy of your student card or another equivalent document suffices.
By the end of each period (i.e. every year), you'll receive a reminder email to renew the license. If you are a student by that time, please send us another email from your .edu account for verification so that your license can be extended for another year.
We also offer important discounts or free premium for:
- professors or technical staffs working at an educational institute
- activists, dissidents or journalists
- charity organizations
Please send us an email at email@example.com for more info.
