Vivaldi gives you a free webmail account at Vivaldi.net. No ads and no strings attached.


Your Vivaldi Mail

  • Storage capacity: 5GB
  • Maximum attachment size: 20 MB
  • Self-learning spam filter

Get started

To get started with your Vivaldi webmail account:

  1. Go to mail.vivaldi.net.
  2. To log in, use your Vivaldi account’s username and password. If you don’t have an account register a new account.

Import mail from another account

  • The best way to move all of your emails from your current provider is to set up your email client (e.g. Opera M2, Thunderbird, etc.) with both Vivaldi Mail and your current email providers account using IMAP.
  • Once you set up both, you can move emails from your current mail provider’s IMAP folder to Vivaldi Mail IMAP folder.
  • After you move all the emails, you can use the Vivaldi webmail web interface. If you want to move sent emails, don’t forget to move the email in Sent folder or similarly named IMAP folder.
  • After the migration, you can also configure your email provider to forward all incoming emails to your Vivaldi Mail address to avoid checking multiple accounts.

Exporting emails

To export all your emails, do the same as with Importing emails. Set up both accounts in a mail client and copy mail from Vivaldi folders to the destination mailbox.

To download a single email:

  • Open the email;
  • Click on More (. . . ) in the top menu;
  • select Download (.eml).

  • Events can be sent to others by opening the event and selecting Send from Options.

Identities

In Vivaldi Mail all emails need to be delivered to and sent from [email protected] This means that different aliases, unfortunately, can’t be used. But, if you have set your Vivaldi Mail up in a mail client, you may use plus addressing (also known as sub-addressing). With plus addressing you can add a keyword to your email address ([email protected]) which allows you to create different variations of the email address. Everything between the + and @ symbols is ignored when deciding, to which account the email belongs to.
You can also create Filters with these addresses to automatically organize your emails into different folders.


Filters

Filters are a good way to automatically organize your mailbox. In Vivaldi webmail you can create filters, for example, to move incoming emails to a specific folder, to reply with a predefined message or to set a flag for the email.

To create a filter go to Settings > Filters. You can create and edit groups of filters under Filter sets. To create a new filter click on the big + icon at the bottom of the Filters column. Add a filter name, make a rule and decide what sort of action should be executed. Don’t forget to save the filter.

When you’re filtering by email address, make sure to use the full email address ([email protected]) not just the domain (@email.com).

Filter settings


Encryption

If you want to send and receive encrypted emails:

  1. in Settings > Preferences > Encryption enable:
    • message encryption and signing
    • message signatures verification
    • message decryption
  2. Import or create a new key pair(s) in Settings > PGP Keys
  3. Share your public key with the person(s) you want to have encrypted conversations with by attaching it to an email.
    Encryption options
  4. And save PGP keys sent by others, by clicking on “This message contains attached PGP key(s)”.
    PGP key message
  5. When composing an email, check the boxes for Digitally sign this message (asks for the account password) and/or Encrypt this message (see the image in the 3rd point).

Numerous additional options to customize the mailbox and its features can be found in Settings.
