  • Here are some tips to get you started with your new Webmail interface.

    Your personal information
    You can edit your name, Reply-to address, and add a signature if you wish.
    Go to Settings > Identities
    (Settings are via the "wrench" icon on the uppermost toolbar.)
    Click on your Identity in the middle column.
    In the frame to the right it will show the information fields.
    Your recipients will see this information in the headers of the emails that you send them.

    Signature
    The place to create a signature for your mails is also in the "Identities" settings.
    Click Settings, then Identities on the left.
    In the right-hand frame you see Settings.
    Scroll down to Signature, fill out that field, and click Save at the bottom.
    If you want a fancy signature, you can check the box labeled "HTML signature" and use the editor.

    Which buttons do what?
    The labels are not shown by default.
    Hover your mouse pointer over each button to see its description.
    Here is a quick overview:

    You can make the labels appear and disappear from the top row.
    Click the little blue arrow button at the extreme right.

    Skins
    If you want your mailbox to have a different look, you can change the "skin".
    You can choose from several different skins, and you can also choose separate ones for your Tablet, Phone, and Desktop.
    Let's change the skin for your Desktop computer (this includes laptops).
    [ul]

    • Go to the Settings (click on the wrench icon on the uppermost toolbar)
    • Click "User Interface".
    • Scroll down in the Main Options frame until you see "Interface skin".
    • Click on the link/name of the Desktop skin named "Litecube".
    • You get a popup with several choices.
    • Click on "Larry" for example, if you want to see big buttons with text labels.
    • Then hit the "Save" button at the bottom.
    • Your mailbox will refresh with the new look.
    • Repeat these steps to make new changes if you wish.
      [/ul]

    Import your contacts to the address book
    First, export your contacts to vCard or CSV format.
    Then go to your Vivaldi Mail, and go to the Address Book.
    Click on the button to the far left, "Import contacts".
    Follow the instructions there to upload your vCard or CSV file and Import it.

    Customized mail, Compose HTML mail
    The default in Vivaldi mail is set to compose plain text emails.
    To change this, go to your Settings > Preferences > Composing Messages.
    In the right frame, under Main Options, you'll see "Compose HTML messages".
    Choose your option there from the drop-down list.

  • reserved space..content coming soon



  • Cool! Awesome! Thanks, Debbie!
    I already slapped on a skin on my Vivaldi Mail.

    I haven't decided if I'll use a Signature yet.
    If it was just for my use within Vivaldi, I'd whip up something quirky right away. But, it's also going to be where my oldest sister E-mails me. So, I have to behave.



  • Debbie, thanks for adding this thread.

    I had found some of the info in other places already, but naturally it is worthwhile to have it centralized, as you are doing here.

    SKINS :

    One new development for me is the addition of other skins for the RoundCube WebMail interface which Vivaldi uses.

    I have not checked yet to see how many have been included, but may I suggest that the one called 'Classic' should be among them, because I have read in another forum that 'Classic' supports a larger set of features than 'Larry' (for example) does, and that the 'Larry' skin apparently does have some bugs unique to itself too.



  • davesnothere, at the moment we have Classic, Larry, and Litecube for desktop. And Litecube made for phone and tablet.



  • Yes, thanks.

    I went there right after my last post, while you were posting, and noticed and enabled the Classic skin.

    May I suggest that other folks try it too.

    Just one issue/question though :

    How do I set it so that the STAR / FLAG marker for adding to received messages can be on the LEFT-hand side of the message title, to be consistent to the majority of other webmail interfaces ?

    BTW, at least two other providers which I have recently tested and which offer RoundCube with the Classic skin have it set that way, so I know this to be possible.

    Plus, I just checked, and your other two skins seems to be configured for RIGHT-hand side STAR / FLAG too, so this adjustment seems to involve a setting which is not tied to which skin we choose.

    Alternately, how easy might it be to add this toggle into the Settings pages under 'Mailbox View', and let each user adjust it ?



  • How to Move the FLAG / STAR Marker, and other things

    I just stumbled upon this, and it's easier than I expected. :blush: [/[u]facepalm]

    Simply DRAG and DROP the header of each column of the Mailbox interface to the position which you wish.

    That's all ! :woohoo: B)

    I should also mention that you can enable and disable various columns by clicking on a certain column header, including some additional columns not included by default.

    Looks like Roundcube is even better and more flexible than I realized ! :)

    It was only that Vivaldi had some different defaults set than most other WebMail providers for their respective interfaces.

    Solved - Cheers ! :)

    P.S. : Maybe add this info into the main Vivaldi FAQ page ? ~> https://vivaldi.net/faq

    Disclaimer : The above observations were made inside of the Classic skin interface, and I have not yet checked to see whether the other skins support everything similarly.

    What's the max size for attachements ?
    Is there any quota or limitation for destination contacts by message or number of mails sent by hour/day/month ?



  • @ra-mon:

    Just added the info to the faq above. Thanks.


  • Moderator

    Merci debbie :)

    35Mb for sent or received or both messages ?

    100 messages par day = 2 messages to 50 contacts per day ?



  • @ra-mon:

    35Mb for sent or received or both messages ?

    35 each

    100 messages par day = 2 messages to 50 contacts per day ?

    Yes. But we can increase this limit. What would be realistic?



  • Thank you for this topic. I am still trying configure mine.
    We can receive emails from other services right?



  • Is there a way to upload/import email addresses to my account from a CSV file?
    (Relating to Webmail)



  • Can we customize font (size mostly) of incoming and outgoing mails?

    I've updated the post above with answers to your questions.

    ahhaa..We need compose mail as HTML to change fonts
    thanx



  • Thx for the skings :) Loving them



  • To be able to use Vivaldi.net like any other mail provider, I really need the ability to create message filters, to keep my inbox clean and my messages organized. Is that already possible with Vivaldi, or is it on the roadmap?



  • Message filters are on the roadmap. So are identities, but that's further along.
