Emails for security and privacy
When I select email services, I also use https://thatoneprivacysite.net/email-comparison, which is helpful. While I visited and read that site, Vivaldi mail is not on the list. I sometimes use Vivaldi mail as a back-up mail, not a primary mail. my primary mail is disroot mail. I might use a Vivaldi mail as a main mail as security, privacy, and technology are fairly great.
@dtakaishi , the main reason why I do not use Vivaldi mail as the main mail is not because it is less secure than others in the first place, but rather the lack of privacy at the point it cannot be private. Everyone who visits this forum knows the email address of all users, since the address is email@example.com invariably for everyone. To remember that this forum is freely accessible to everyone, also for those who do not use Vivaldi and also for malicious people.

That's a very, very good point. Did you ever try to propose it as an issue, to the support, or in the snapshot blog?
@newscpq , I mentioned it some time ago, although I confess not to have insisted later, having few comments about it from other users and using Vivaldi mail anyway as mail secondary.
How often do you use your Vivaldi email, even though you hardly use it?
Do you utilize secure yet free or paid email account?
@dtakaishi , I use Vivaldi mail mainly for information and news from Vivaldi, otherwise I use Proton mail and Tutanota, free of charge, as a particular I do not have a volume of mails that would justify using a paid service.
In matters of privacy, I am guided by balance. Mail services like ProtonMail and Tutanota are too much for me. In addition, they do not allow IMAP/POP protocols, and I prefer desktop and mobile clients to webmail.
I love that Vivaldi's servers are in Iceland. I heard that there is quite strict legislation regarding the personal data of users.
However, after sending myself a test email from @vivaldi.net, I found that there was a lot of information about the server software in its headers, including version numbers and all filter chains.
In this regard, I have a question about the reliability of these servers. Of course, if the administrator is a professional, he can configure it so that no one could hack the server, even knowing exactly what software is installed on it. But I don't even know how often they update their software, how well it is configured, how much attention they pay to it.
Are there people on this forum who can say unequivocally that Vivaldi's servers are not only located in legislation that is comfortable for users' privacy, but that security issues are given the utmost attention?
I found this article: https://vivaldi.com/security/ but there it seems to be only about the browser.
No problems obvious with the email config
No obvious security issues though DANE is not configured
