Has been working for a decade for my purposesOctober 19, 2011 By resxi
Probably I am not very demanding e-mail user, but as soon as I discovered e-mail, I began preferring e-mail clients over webmail. Since then I have tried out many clients, Opera most extensively, as it definitely matches the way I do e-mail. As the about.com reviewer points out, templates are not easy to do with Opera. However, if plain text is enough for you, the Notes feature in the browser allows for easy templates. For this, open Notes, type your text formatted as an e-mail template, then go to the e-mail composer window, right-click in the e-mail body area to bring up the context menu and choose Insert/Note. If you insist on HTML templates, begin to compose an HTML message and save it as Draft. Then create another folder (a.k.a access point a.k.a filter), name the folder Templates, drag the draft to that folder. Any time you need to use that template, choose Edit from the context menu in the message body area. As for me personally, I never saw any use for templates in a special place for templates. Faced with a need to send a message similar to some earlier one, I always selected the earlier message and chose Edit from the context menu, which allows sending the message as new after whatever edits I do there. Close enough for templates.

BrilliantAugust 25, 2010 By clarkeez
I love this. I was searching for a nice email client and I stumbled upon the mail subdomain of opera's website. at first, I thought they made an email client app like thunderbird, outlook etc, but no, ITS IN THE BROWSER! Wooo! Brilliant, what more did I want? No more! I got it setup within 5mins on my new email host and domain and it works like a charm. It even has a notification box in the bottom right of your screen (even if the browser isnt in focus) to tell you that a new mail has arrived, and you can set a sound for it to play when this occurs. Perfect client, perfect. I love it, well done Opera! Now - Sort out your website rendering and everyone will use it.

Importing does not work.April 26, 2010 By Fred_Fredsky
I tried to import my Apple Mail info. I have 3 accounts. The Help page shows the following steps: 1-Select Tools > Mail and chat accounts. 2-Click ""Add"" and select ""Import e-mail"". 3-Select which e-mail client to import from. If Opera has not located the correct folder, click ""Choose"" to select the folder the messages are located in. 4-Select which account to import into; choose ""
"" to import to a fresh account. 5-Select whether to import settings, contacts, messages, or a combination. 6-Click ""Import"" to start importing. The process flounders before it starts. When do Step 1 and I select the menu item ""Mail and Chat accounts"" I get a message window stating ""You need to create an account before proceeding"". So Opera expects me to manually recreate the 3 accounts and then import each account individually. No will do! And it is so much more infuriating since once you create an account, you apparently can import into a ""new account"" created on the fly. So why can't the importing process create these new accounts? So OK, just for the heck of it I click Yes and I get the ""New Account Wizard"". Straightforward stuff, I manually recreate one of the three accounts and try it again. Now the process flounders right after it starts. I do Step 1 and select ""Mail and Chat accounts"". A window named ""Manage Accounts"" open. I do Step 2 and click ""Add"" as instructed. The ""New Account Wizard"" opens up again, there is no option to ""Import email"". That's it, I never get to Step 3 and beyond.

It's perfect except ......December 11, 2008 By baccilus
It's really convenient to have the email client right inside the Web browser. It also has IRC and all other features that one may hope for. But it's email component has one massive problem: It downloads even the mails going into the ""spam"" folder of the email id. I don't know how to get rid of this problem :-(. If it wasn't for this, opera would have been perfect.

So sorryNovember 01, 2008 By sophielea
I tried this because I love the Opera Browser but had to stop because it just wouldn't let me block emails. This is a very important thing for me. If this was fixed then I would certainly try it again. sophielea
