@gregorspalme there is a "mail" folder in the profile location where the messages are stored, but there's also a lot of indexing data etc. in the M3 system which you'd need to clear - so better to re-enable your mail then use the method @pauloaguia describes to clear everything before disabling it again.
@janrif I think you need to remove the folders on the mail server, because that's where they're coming from.
Not sure if they'll disappear on Vivaldi's side now that they've already been indexed that way. But if not, I'd say that merits filling a bug...
@stevelay1 said in Can't open mail client with email account entered.:
I have opened and clicked on the Mail Icon and set up accounts but can't get mail to open
I assume you clicked the mail icon in the panel bar on the left (as opposed to the mail icon in the status bar at the bottom)...
I find it difficult to picture what happens or doesn't happen. When you click the mail icon on the panel bar, the mail panel should open on the left and show you all the filters and accounts much like Opera 12. If you click the mail icon in the status bar it should open a little box showing the connection status of your accounts.
If you enter vivaldi://mail in the address bat of a tab, that should open a mail tab showing a list of mails and a mail preview (with limited use as long as the mail panel is closed, depending on which view it jumps to the mail list might be empty).
Could you please post a screenshot of what you see?
Opera 12 M2 is at this point still better but Vivaldi is getting there. I find it odd that you struggle with Vivaldi coming from opera because they behave very similar
@stevelay1 The URL is vivaldi://mail but as @luetage said, it doesn't make much sense without the mail panel.
If you don't see the mail panel in the vertical panel on the left (default), please note that mail only exists in the first browser window you open.
@durhammer said in Cannot use Vivaldi Mail until bugs worked out:
@jon Way cool! Believe it or not, I have patience to wait for it, and the complete expectation that it will come to pass, and will be a game changer. (Writing this in my Vivaldi browser on my Lenovo android tablet.)
We do try our best. Just know this is going to take time. 🙂
Am also waiting for the implementation. Lack of full CardDav interoperability including contact groups is the single biggest weakness in what I currently use for Windows 10 email.
Contact groups (mostly) works in Thunderbird using TbSync coupled with Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV, but it's pretty clunky. Doesn't appear to work with other T-bird plugins. And not at all in eM Client.
Am hoping Vivaldi will be a better alternative.
@mossman said in Keep losing the icon for accessing Vivaldi mail:
consider a different taskbar icon for the window where mail can be run
I'm against this, but not because it's a bad idea in any way, but because I am generally not a fan of optimizing around a deficit....
@joopliefaard those imap account folders are indeed supported if they exist (as of yet Vivaldi mail cannot create them). It is possible to right-Click an email and choose to move it to another existing imap folder. So in that sense it is possible to have the workflow you are used to, but as of now you have to create an archive IMAP folder either in your account web interface or with another email program
