It is not the greatest e-mail service. The advantage of Vivaldi mail is that it's server is located in Iceland, who seems to be a world champion in internet liberty.

However, believe to no one and use encryption at your side (e.g., Small GnuPG iconGnuPG with Small Enigmail iconEnigmail).

There is little to recommend Vivaldi Mail at the moment other than:

  • their support for generating and using PGP keys to encrypt emails
  • an actually usable calendar

This, added to their stricter-than-industry-standard privacy policy is all good stuff. It means your emails aren't being trawled for private data that the parent company can sell for profit, as Google, Yahoo and Microsoft do. (If you don't realise it, realise it now: those services sell YOU and your privacy as a product to advertisers. You should quit them for that reason alone.)

But... if you're in the market for an email service that is more mature in security and privacy-respecting, check out Mailbox.org, Protonmail and/or Tutanota.
