Introducing Vivaldi Mail in Technical Preview


  • Vivaldi Team

    @ZarkBit It's related to having an old profile. The devs are looking into it.



  • Is it possible to import our M2 data?



  • Hi,
    Can't send my mail.
    The send button has no effect...
    And it seems that the button "new mail" is missing, unless i click on the mail icon in the left panel.
    Thanks for any help !



  • @chantoine
    Hi, I can send but I use IMAP, do you use POP3?

    Cheers, mib

    @chantoine Check out this topic: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/53306/sending-emails. Does it sound like the issue you're having?



  • @mib2berlin: i use IMAP
    tested on 2 accounts on 2 different providers...



  • @jane-n: Thanks for the link. Except that i have all folders, it seems the same.
    Maybe it's the initial indexing (i clicked on "pre-charge all the messages").

    @chantoine Please start a new topic about this issue here: https://forum.vivaldi.net/category/191/vivaldi-mail, so we could figure out what's happening?



  • Thank you so much for this much requested feature. All of us, especially longtime Opera (Presto) users have been waiting for this feature to land in Vivaldi.

    It is remarkable how distinct Vivaldi has become as a browser. Unlike the competition which treats users like an afterthought Vivaldi treats its users with real respect.

    Vivaldi is fast becoming my browser of choice on any platform. It is the only application for which I am willing to discard my philosophy of using only FOSS software. Such is the usefulness of this browser.

    I recently introduced some of my colleagues to Vivaldi (Stable) and they are absolutely charmed. They just love how productive it has made them. Tab tiling and the sidebar are cited as their favourite features. Who knew that regular users appreciate a browser which doesn't treat its users as dumb people (/sarcasm).

    Again, please allow me to convey my deepest regards to the Vivaldi Team for such an excellent product.

    P.S.: A special shout out to the awesome of Vivaldi community. You have been absolutely great.

    @HealingCross There is no need for concern. Using Vivaldi Mail is totally optional. There should not be any adverse interactions with external email clients, and Vivaldi even has a "Turn Mail Client Off" setting.

    As a member of the Soprano team, I was not an "early adopter" of "M3", only a casual tester. I preferred to use an external email client. However, once M3 became solid-enough for daily use, I found myself using it more and more because I truly liked the way that it worked, and how it worked with the web applications that I use. I now use Vivaldi as my primary desktop email client.

    If you choose not to use Mail, you will still continue to enjoy the same web browsing experience that you always have. Or you can try it, and you may find that you really like it. Vivaldi's goal was to make a web browser that provides a superior user experience, and they strive to do the same with Mail and Calendar.



  • Great news, thanks! So far checked and confirming it working fine with @outlook.com and @vivaldi.net acounts.
    Not working with @gmail.com accounts. After entering the password it says something like that: "Sign in with Google account is temporary blocked for this application."



  • Congrats to @jon and everyone who made this possible!



  • Dream come true. Can't wait to test it.
    Thank you !



  • This is huge and awesome. Thanks for the hard work.

    However, yes, I've read the article, a separate feed reader interface is a must for me. I understand that the logic behind the mail and reader clients are similar, but the current interface is too crowded for me. I hope the separated interface will be ready by the time this stuff hits final.

    @Nekomajin , the plan is to provide a feed reader panel and likely a manager moving forward. We knew there would be requests for that. Using the mail db has a lot of benefits, though, also for any other feed reader UI we will make.

  • @Nekomajin Have a look at this: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/53321/add-folder-and-label-settings
    If they implemented it, this should do the trick.



  • Yes! Thank you! Just gave it a spin now and they're sooo good! Very fast and responsive!



  • @xyzzy Well said, thank you. But as I more and more realize, Vivaldi isn't actually made for me any more. Too much features I don't need. I don't have this nostalgia feeling about good old Opera. So I haven't been waiting for this, unfortunately. Using webmail exclusively since signing in with Gmail.

    And it's not only mail, calendar and feed, it's also about pause-button and Vivaldia e.g. A lot of features that don't make any sense to me. Using Vivaldi has become more about what features not to use lately then what features to use. So I might consider to use another browser but still without any definite preference. Maybe going back to Chrome or to the new Edge.

    Sorry to say that. I do understand however that lots of folks will see it differently. And they're right. But I've been talking about my own needs and using a browser whose features more than half of them I don't use makes no real sense to me.
