Sending Mail via IMAP ERROR



  • Hi, First Thanks for a great service. I am using the standard IMAP setup as shown at: https://vivaldi.net/forum/suggestion-box/190-vivaldi-net-email#1903 But now cannot send outgoing emails with the following Thunderbird error: An error occurred sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting: Cannot connect to SMTP server 82.221.99.162 (82.221.99.162:25), NB connect error 1460. Any suggestions or help? Thx Edward K



  • Hi Edward,
    Welcome ;)

    Internet Message Access Protocol(or IMAP) is used to retrieve email messages from a server only.
    For sending a message, you need to use the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (or SMTP).

    So simply enable SMTP for outgoing message with appropriate parameters

    @debbie:

    SMTP server: mail.vivaldi.net
    SSL/TLS Port: 465
    Auth:Your Vivaldi user name and password

    Hope this help you.
