@HansHansen I agree with @Zsul : unless you can control what software the users can or can't install (and some places do), it's very hard to guarantee that everyone will use it the way you want to. If you don't want people using an email client, then block the POP/SMTP/IMAP services from being used.
For instance, whenever I'm connected to my company's VPN I know Vivaldi mail will stop fetching email because that traffic is not being allowed out.
I never tried to use it to connect to my company's email (I don't want to mix things at that level) but if I did I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't accepting it because it's not Outlook...
And other stuff like that.
Thanks for the replies and advice. I should have mentioned how thrilled I am that this thing is finally (almost) here, and praise to all the people who have worked on it over the years. Yay Vivaldi!
But I think I may just wait for an update wherein "the import works flawlessly". I'm afraid that I am often proof of the adage "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing."
It's possible that the outgoing mail server on the sender side is misconfigured and not adhering to common standards we follow. But to be sure, please send a private message to us on https://help.vivaldi.com/services/webmail/troubleshooting-webmail-issues/, so we could find out the exact cause. Thanks 🙂

You can receive emails for various mail services such as Gmail without any problems, but not all. When you press the send button, the mail creation screen just disappears and you don't see the sent email. I tried it on Windows and Mac, but both were useless. What kind of problem do you think this might be?
@ghpy understandable given the trouble you have to get it working in the first place. I also had setup problems when the client was released as experimental preview end of last year, when M2 import was not even an option
I have used Opera M2 and Vivaldi side by side since, and found myself not requiring to use Opera12 for anything other than IRC anymore after little time. So opera now mainly is a first line of defense backup
So if you are using Vivaldi anyway as your browser, I suggest you just keep having it download your email too and you'll see when it becomes convenient.
