can't add email account to Mailspring - can't connect to SMTP



  • I'm trying to add my Vivaldi email account to Mailspring, but no matter how I tweak the settings I get an error saying it can't connect to the SMTP server.

    Settings:

  • @LcTech Hello, and welcome to the Vivaldi Community! 🙂

    As documented here:
    https://help.vivaldi.com/article/vivaldi-net-and-its-webmail/#setup

    The hostnames are imap/pop3 for inbound and smtp for outbound.

    If you ask me it's a Pretty Bad Idea to have different host names for mail, but that's how they've set things up for some reason.
