Thanks for pointing that out! O.k. I do not want to get to off-topic
here but it interests me what would happen if I use a US based server
and a US domain with whois guard? Would ProtonMail really hunt down
a proxy server operator, or let's say other email providers, when
doing such a thing, or would they simply block access from that
domain? I mean it is not a crime to run a proxy server.
