Yes, lack of IMAP/SMTP support is definitely a hassle and the bridge 
would just ad complexity.

One thing that is difficult to replace though is their support for 
encrypted communication with *non*subscribers.

And some of my calendar, will migrate that to ProtonMail as well, as 
soon as the (limited) free calendar is available (currently still in 
beta and only for paying customers).

For the avoidance of doubt, I'm not affiliated with ProtonMail in any 
way, I'm just quite happy with their free services and their stance on 
privacy and freedom (including free software).

This is already off-topic for debian-user so I'll stop here.
