Mail Client Wish List.



  • @starkcitizen:

    I'm for calling it Harmony (then browser + email client = Vivaldi Harmony Suite - sounds nice 😉

    Yes Harmony is nice for the whole thing.

    I suggest "Primavera" for the "M3" client alone.

    Spring, in English, would be nice too, given it means both the season of rebirth, the well known Vivaldi's concerto and the mechanical part, known to be "flexible"



  • I almost forgot… something very important for me: please allow the user to set the mail filesystem directory!

    One of the (many) great things about M2 in Opera is that I can have all my mail stored on the main home PC - then when I log in on the other PC or the laptop it still has all my mail ready to go because I've set the mail directory as a network location! 😃

    It would be horrible if I had to go back to a "dumb" system where it only allows unique mail data for each profile on each machine. 😞



  • i wonder what the people here are talking about. did you guys ever use the older opera??
    imap,offline,import of tb,source html,mail header,setting of mail root dir, everything was already available!
    and please dont talk about a seperate mail client, wtf?! the whole purpose is to get the client again back into the browser!!

    another suggestion: the option to have no access to the mail client/mails until entering the master password!



  • @mossman:

    I almost forgot… something very important for me: please allow the user to set the mail filesystem directory!

    This is important, sure, but keep in mind that windows nowadays has the symbolic links just like Linux/Unix.

    (for the record most of the Windows directory itself is mostly made by a bunch of symbolic links )

    But Windows lacks a graphical way to manage them, this is easy to overcome with this utility.

  • Dead simple PGP integration.

    Many people don’t use PGP because it is difficult to set up. Having that built-in would be a strong argument for Vivaldi.

    I just remembered something else that has become important for my usage:

    Conversation view.


  • Moderator

    Oh, yeah - and consolidated inbox (ability to show all accounts in one inbox) or consolidated folder view - in that there can be a single unread, received, outbox, sent, drafts, spam, and trash view for all accounts. M2 allowed you to do this per-account, or unified. A unified view is important

    …and what about an online service, just as revolutionary as "turbo" had been, to provide a super easy PKI mail encryption?



  • @louise:

    all of the above, plus PGP encryption

  • What I like most with M2 is
    [ol]

    • Filters! Searches! Labels! These are awesome. They have to be there but be even more customizable: filter by size of mail/attachments and number of attachments etc.
    • Intelligent POP3 settings like keeping mails for x days on the server and keeping unread mails on the server.
      [/ol]

    I'd also like to see (additional to nearly all that was mentioned by others above)
    [ol]

    • Multiple address books
    • Contacts sync with carddav
    • Editable from: address (or at least multiple personalities), like in good ol' Eudora
      [/ol]


  • [ol]

    • Remove Attachments to save storage space in mail backup
    • Backup email
      [/ol]


  • @DatLicht:

    My wishes for the email client are these:

    • IMAP support (most important!)

    • SPTP with different options for authentication (Login-before-Send, ASMTP, …)

    • email storage that has not to be tidied up manually by deleting cache files when using IMAP (that was cruical on Opera!)

    • address book with import and export of contacts (vcf, Thunderbird, ...)

    • maybe address book that can be synched with commonly used services (Gmail, Hotmail, LDAP, Outlook, ...?)

    • import (maybe also export?) of mail folders like they're used in Thunderbird

    • option to show the source code of HTML emails

    • option to show the complete mail header (oh, that is not in every email client!)

    • option to save all attachments at once

    • option to view the text version of a multipart email

    • maybe realtime checking of email domain (DNS / MX Record) when entered an email address

    • offline mode (not for IMAP, of course)

    +1



  • hope there will be an option to store them encrypted offline,
    so you can access them only when entering (the hopefully coming soon) master password..



  • I just want to be able to use it like I use Gmail.com. The same Primary, Social, Promotions folders with my side folders. I've become so used to that, and would love it if Vivaldi's mail client could pick that up directly. O12 doesn't do it, but hopefully V's modern mail receivers have that ability.
