If I'm not mistaken, ProtonMail has more users than a number of the email providers listed under Settings > Mail App. AND it is the largest (and arguably best) of the explicitly privacy-focused email providers. Since privacy is something Mozilla really, REALLY says it cares about, this one would seem a no-brainer.

Alternative approach: Can Firefox not simply "sense" which email programs are available on a particular device and let us pick our preferred default? If this is technologically feasible (you never know with iOS APIs), this would seem a much more sensible and straightforward approach -- one that wouldn't seem to be picking eight particular (and kind of odd) favorities.
