The head honcho of Vivaldi, @Ruarí, has confirmed in another thread since this one was posted that being able to import Mail/Contacts/Calendar etc. from one Vivaldi installation to another IS part of the plan; but it's still not an actual feature as yet. I remain hopeful we'll get this sooner rather than later.
@ra2002 Vivaldi doesn’t create additional folders, at least not on the servers I tested on. What happened is you gave a third party email client access to this server and it created standard folders automatically, disregarding the fact they already exist. The easiest way to solve this is to visit the server online, moving emails from the duplicate folders to the originals and then deleting duplicate folders.
Ok, I just need to make sure I understand what you want here.
If you don't want to see messages from some folders...
You should be able to right click folders and unsubscribe from them.
If you don't care about syncing state of emails with some servers...
You could set up those email accounts as POP3. You'd only get a single INBOX and no folders structure from the server.
If you don't want some folders to exist at all or make new IMAP then you currently have to do that webserver.
Thanks for the response.
Unfortunately moving emails to folders doesn't always work. Hotmail seems to be the issue right now. I don't seem to have trouble with Vivaldi or GMX accounts and even Gmail seems to be behaving now. I'll report more as I find issues.
I use 2FA and it has worked for me (both App Password and OAuth)
Does OAuth sign in work for you?
You should see something like these settings in your Server settings...
I had the same issue with my Vivaldi mail. I'm using Avast free version. Disabled the mail filter and it workes as intended. For some reason, Avast is blocking Vivaldi mail from sending connection requests.
There is still an issue with the signatures. For example, if the signature in the account properties is written like this:
Name Here | firstname.lastname@example.org
<blank line inserted here>
Sent with Vivaldi Mail.
it will display in a reply e-mail as:
Name Here | email@example.com Sent with Vivaldi Mail.
...all on one line. It is not keeping the formatting when replying to an e-mail. Yet on a new e-mail, it is formatted correctly.
I have previously filed a bug report about this (VB-77299). Occurs in both Vivaldi Stable and Snapshot.
@jumpsq said in Importing from M2 fails at IRC accounts (?):
Hover over Received and Sent in both O12 and V4 and compare the numbers (possibly delete feeds first or reset / adjust filters so that both show the same type of mails (e.g. spam)).
Thanks. I couldn't figure out how many emails I actually had in O12. I forgot that I had turned off tooltips years ago so hovering did nothing.
I'll play around with importing a bit more when I have some free time. Maybe it will work better if I delete some accounts and import them one at a time or something.
@hodkiewicz welcome to the Vivaldi forum!
It seems that your issue, while with Gmail, has no relation to the Vivaldi browser and integrated mail client - in fact, Vivaldi is not even available for the iPhone. So this is not the best place to look for a solution to the problem you see. The one thing that may be similar is that Gmail has to be set to allow "less secure" third party apps (= apps that Google doesn't care about or does not want to support). Since your iPhone is an older model, that may also apply to you.
If you run into trouble with Vivaldi on your PC or Mac, make sure to pop in here and get help
