People are replying to my emails to the wrong client

  • I don't get why my Vivaldi email has got a hold of my old unused Microsoft email address, Whenever I write an email to someone, the sender address is instead of the usual and when I get a reply I don't get it through my Vivaldi account but through my Outlook account?? I mailed support but they won't help.

    I think this has something to do with changing the server to Roundcube.

    The Email field in identity settings can not be changed by the user ( @lonm: for good reason)
    A temporary workarround to get answers to the account would be to explicitly set the Reply-To field in webmail.
    A desktop mail client may also be able to send properly formated mail.

    Sending a mail with a bad origin domain should not be allowed by the mail server.
    This will be problematic if you encounter a 3rd party mail server with a reasonably strict setup.

    An you should remember: forwarding does not change the reply-to headers of a mail.

  • Vivaldi Team

    It was a case of mixed information in the database. A dev fixed the issue for GawainRomijn last week.
