Sending Mail via IMAP ERROR

  • Hi, First Thanks for a great service. I am using the standard IMAP setup as shown at: 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 (, 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


    SMTP server:
    SSL/TLS Port: 465
    Auth:Your Vivaldi user name and password

    Hope this help you.
