Not receiving emails
I've been waiting for email integration since Opera 12, so I was really happy when I saw this earlier (I'm not sure how I missed that it was finally happening).
I managed to import my Opera emails (I was using Opera 12 for years after I should have, then I started using Opera Mail on its own since then). It took a few attempts as it wasn't doing anything until I did a very specific thing, and I've spent several hours tidying in all up. It's now right, but I'm not getting any emails.
I have emails waiting, as I can see them in webmail, the account isn't offline, and I see it do checks every minute, but nothing appears in unread.
I just tried sending, and that works.

This is what the Virgin Media site says about incoming mail:
Receiving mail (POP3)
POP3 server name
Enabled (or 'Password' on Macs)
Full email address, e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: If you update your username in My Virgin Media, this email address will not change.
POP3 SPA (Secure Password Authentication)
Could the problem be the SSL/TLS part in the Vivaldi mail "Connection security" dropdown? I can't change that setting.
@necronom That might actually be related. Try a different port number, like 993.
No, 993 didn't work (it's for IMAP), but I tried 110 and that verified but still didn't download anything.
@necronom (grrr) You known you can't use TLS on port 110, right?
I was pretty sure it would fail, but I'm getting desperate at the moment. I've spend a considerable amount of time sorting out my emails and now it doesn't work. I'd expect all Virgin media account using ntlworld servers (and plenty of other people using other servers) are having the same issue, and since the ntlworld addresses were given at a time when everyone was getting emails at home, I think there will be a lot of people who can't use this at the moment. They might try it, give up, and go back to Chrome.
Opera and Opera Mail both work perfectly, so I assumed it would be the case here, since most people who want email in Vivaldi are probably using Opera Mail. This should support whatever Opera/Opera Mail supports. I moved to Vivaldi because of the Opera devs making it and saying we would get mail.
Now I can't go back to Opera Mail without undoing the hours of work I did yesterday in Vivaldi's mail client after the import. I'm currently using webmail, which I don't like, and anything I send from that is split from my PCs emails.
@necronom Another user who can't create an account has the incoming SSL/TLS dropdown grayed out. Would you please file a bug on this?
Thanks. I didn't know if I was supposed to be able to change the dropdown. If I am, then that makes a bit more sense, and I might be able to get it working with an update.
I've submitted a bug report.
Ok we need to figure this out. The dropdown is not enabled because we currently don't support other things than SSL/TLS for incoming mail. (StartTLS is currently only supported for outgoing mail, and plain text was not supported for security reasons, but we might need to talk about that for localhost servers and such).
This doesn't seem to be the issue since I looked at Virgin email setup and they specifically want you to use SSL/TLS
Therefore I would like to see whether you get any error messages in your console.
Could you follow these instructions https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/59751/trouble-vivaldi-client-email/8?_=1623684284800 (just for getting the information, not the first line of deleting the db of course) and post that here or send me in a message?
Thanks a lot for the reply. I wasn't sure what I could do about this.
It looks like there is a very obvious problem here, so hopefully we can work out why it can't store the messages.
