Creating identities in webmail
PC64 last edited by Gwen-Dragon
Is there any progress being made, or will there be, in allowing creation of identities in web mail? I like the clean look of Vivaldi web mail, but still would like option to have other identities. Thanks.

@pc64 You have to create a new account for each identity currently. You can probably request this as feature, but the likelihood of implementation is anyone's guess.
The option to have multiple identities used to be available, but we had to disable this feature because of malicious users, who abused it and sent out phishing and scam emails.

@jane-n Thanks. Too bad we have people like that around.

@jane-n I have zero identities and am not able to create a new one therefore I'm not able to use PGP, as I need an identity to link to the PGP key when I generate one.
Is it not possible to allow people to create 1 identity?
I'd expect that my username would automatically be an "identity" in the identities tab in settings, however that does not seem to be the case.
@intuxikated You should see your identity at https://mail.vivaldi.net/webmail/?_task=settings&_action=identities and you can create a PGP-key for this identity.

no identities there
same in the PGP keys window, there's no option to select anything next to the "identities" text
maybe i've accidentally deleted it at some point? not sure
@intuxikated Oh, something in your webmail is broken.

I was going to contact support today but after logging in I noticed it's fixed now.
There's an identity now in the Identities section and I can create PGP keys and communicate encrypted with protonmail, so everything seems to be working, thanks!
@intuxikated Nice to hear all is ok now .)
@intuxikated indeed I asked my colleague to check it out and fixed it for you. It seems your default identity was deleted (or at least disappeared). Thanks for using Vivaldi webmail.
