The only purpose of that would be to specifically subvert the intentions
and processes of ProtonMail. They have designed a system which chooses
policy based on the source IP (including a different policy for Tor exit
nodes), and you try to subvert this policy selection, and possibly give
a route for spammers to register on the system.

If you don't like their policies, don't use them. Don't try to work
around the policies they impose on the use of their service. You don't
have a right to the use of their services under your conditions.


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
