But, messages are already stored in the same format they're saved/exported in. See the mail/store/accountN folder (where N is the number for the account as seen in accounts.ini). Also see the mail/store/drafts folder for drafts for all accounts.
To make sure the store is complete, make sure low-bandwidth mode is off. For IMAP, also make sure "do not download attachments" is off and make sure "make all messages available offline" is set.
Opera supports the mbox format (files have an mbs extension) for storing messages. You'll need to find a converter that converts them to something Outlook can import. For mbox files that contain a single message, you can just remove the "From " line in the first line of the file and rename the file to have an eml extension to make it an eml file that you can open in Outlook maybe.
However, if your email server supports IMAP too, you can set up IMAP to connect to your account too. Then, drag your pop messages to the IMAP Inbox folder view to upload them to the server. Then, when you set up the POP account in Outlook, it'll just fetch all the messages. No need to export and import.
If you're only using IMAP, you don't need to do anything at all except set up your IMAP account in outlook.
To convert your Opera address book, export it via "Menu -> settings -> import and export", convert it and import it into Outlook.
Thank you burnout426 - I can see now that the new account messages are currently appearing in the first account, so can hit the 'K' key to get them out of the immediate inbox. The View 'button' allowed me to choose the second account. Thanks so much guys for the help! As someone who is possibly a little more computer savvy than some, but definitely not a great computer person, I sometimes find Opera a little daunting if you have to get into the settings. But it is a great great browser and it is wonderful to be able to get help.
Speed Dial - I use it for all my bookmarking and "sessions" needs. E.g. I right-click the tab bar and select "Save as Speed Dial folder", then Opera will create a folder with all the open tabs in that window for me. When I need to access the saved pages, I just type any part of the URL or title in the address field, or I can use the search field at the SD's top right and it'll display all the matches in the thumbnails form so I can access/edit/delete them easily, or I can also browse them manually opening the folders and glancing at the thumbnails and managing them quickly by dragging and dropping (I used the original sessions feature in Opera 12 and while it was useful it was bad because of the lack of that ability to manage them easily).
I know that a classic bookmarks manager would be capable of the same things, including more levels of sub-folders, but even with the limitation of 1-level folders in Speed Dial with my organization it already fits my needs very well so I don't need them. Also, while the bookmarks manager lists items in favicon + title text, the Speed Dial displays the thumbnails of the pages so it's a thousand times easier to recognize the saved pages when browsing them. When I need to dump a page to read later I put it in a temporary Speed Dial folder or out of my way in the Stash.
Search with in the context menu - You're reading text a page then comes across a term you'd like to search. In the other most popular browsers they'll always send you to your default search engine, but in Opera you can chose from any of your search engines. That means I can select text, right-click and in search with menu I can search the selected text in Wikipedia, a dictionary website, in online shopping sites, an alternative search engine, movies, etc... It's much more powerful and comfortable than any other browsers and no plug-in is required for this (nor for any other things I'm citing here).
Shortcuts - there are additional shortcuts in Opera like Paste&Go (Ctrl+Shift+V) that'll work at any moment you want to go to URL or search what's in the clipboard. You don't even need to focus the address field (F8) for it to work, as long as the focus isn't in a text field in a page it'll work. In Chrome and Firefox you'd need to install an extension just for that (crazy). There are also the integrated mouse and rocker gestures and advanced keyboard shortcuts. Some can be added/edited, but not via the browser GUI.
TAB cycles only through form elements - Something so small but that makes all the difference... When you press TAB when visiting a page, instead of highlighting all the links in the page like other browsers, Opera will only focus form elements like text fields, buttons and checkboxes. This is very useful when filling forms and also generally when you press TAB 1 or 2 times after first accessing a page it'll put the focus in the search or other important field of that page instantly, you can painlessly start the query you want.
Recently closed pages - All of them are available for you to reopen in the main menu. While Chrome will show only the ~10 most recent, and IE requires that you open a new tab just to access this list. I'd often get frustrated when I tested Chrome and wanted to reopen a tab far than 10 entries in the list and discovering I couldn't. Opera does it much better.
Stash may be more useful for some people than it's for me, I'll explain - Instead of micromanaging, editing entries' titles, remembering them, etc, you just send a page there and Opera will index the page's content text so you can go there and type any part of the text of a page you recall to search for it, with even bigger thumbnails for recognition.
See this post about bookmarks (and Speed Dial and Stash) from Ruarí: http://ruario.ghost.io/2014/03/18/bookmarks/
The more you use it you'll see that the argument it's equal to Chrome is laughable and uninformed. It's not worth switching to Chrome at all, or to any other browser IMO.
Yes I know it lacks a classic bookmarks manager (although it already has the bookmarks bar which is enough for many people according to my real life and online "screenshot sharing" observation), but as you can see I don't need one.
Sync is coming... The ability to define our own custom search engines as default: they want to allow that after they implement an anti-hijacking method (I use Bing myself because that's the only alternative with good enough results to rival Google, but other people can use keywords or workarounds posted in these forums to use DDG, Start Page, Ixquick, etc).
So... What's the point of using other browsers, I ask...
The only extension i had was AdBlock, but it's been completely removed to try to figure this out.
But, I removed opuntrust.dat, restarted Opera and now Facebook works! I tried it on the work machine too and success there too. Yay!
I never would have thought to try that, because i don't know what it is. What exactly is this opuntrust.dat file?
Thanks so much everyone!
MAN!!! YOUR solution works GREAT, for the record, if anybody don,t know where exactly opuntrust.dat is, just search the hold c:, it won,t take long
ok, I solved this too..
I have disable Visual Revenue in Gostery extension in order to visualize all the image in page linked.
Then, I have installed 12.16 for accede at correct (and old) extension page web, when do not appears the message "for only opera 22", and now I can download its.
As long as I can, I will never change this old version just because multifunctional!
Unfortunately, the developers did not realize that creating a browser more like the giant Google, its will lose users because those approached Opera did it because it offer something different and also alternative than the traditional browser. They could also create a light browser to whom, those who wanted to, he could add some old functionality through the use of plugins,instead the developers have done the exact opposite, of course, between two similar but not identical products, a person what it does?.. Inevitably use the most sponsored ,vreliable and "modern".
Even I use Opera for over a dozen years and I have sponsored many people (who have already changed sides), if anything, I should decide to abandon the old version will not be able to opt for Chrome.
Note that the Chrome extension downloader was made by Opera. As for why specific permissions are needed, keep in mind that even a minor thing that is affected by permissions will trigger that permission requirement. The Lifehacker article was quite informative.
Is this with IMAP or POP? Make sure you don't have low-bandwidth mode on if you're using POP. For IMAP, make sure you don't have low-bandwidth mode on and make sure you don't have "do not download attachments" turned on and make sure you have "make all messages available offline" set. Otherwise, all messages won't exist in full in Opera's mail store.
I mention that as all messages are already stored as mbs files in Opera's mail/store folder ("drafts" for all accounts and an accountN folder for each account). So, there's no need to export unless you want to group all messages for a view into a single mbs file.
But, since you're exporting, Opera should ask you if you want to fetch incomplete messages. After you tell it yes, you have to do the export again (othewise Opera will do nothing).
What views did you export? When exporting a view in the mail panel, what messages are exported depends on the "settings for this view" "show" settings (the button is on the toolbar above the message list. Also, if you've enabled the period button (a per-view setting to hide messages older than a certain date), make sure each view is set to "forever".
You also might want to make sure the main database and indexer database are not corrupted. You can run a test that will fix some minor corruption. But, if something is really messed up, you can't rely on exporting via the UI and instead need to import from the mail/store folder.
If this is with POP and you can't see last months mails no matter what, you can close down Opera and delete the uid file for the pop account. It's numbered based on the accounts listed in accounts.ini and is in the pop3 folder in the mail folder. That'll cause Opera to refetch all messages thar are on the server in the Inbox (causing duplicates if they're showing in Opera already).
If this is with IMAP, you can unsubscribe from a folder and resubscribe. But, don't do this unless you're using the Opera Mail standalone version or Opera 12.14+ as it'll wipe out messages in the IMAP folder due to a bug.
(On a side, for my sake, for future reference, please prefix Opera Mail thread subjects with "Opera Mail - " so I don't miss them.)
Depending on what the malware might have been, I'd consider changing at least my Wells Fargo log-in. And anything else that is a 'sensitive' log-in that you may have logged into whilst you had the problem. Some malware monitors what you're sending, especially on forms boxes, and phones it home.
If you have shadow-copying enabled on your Win7 installation, use Windows Explorer to navigate along the path of the bookmarks file that was shown in the "about Opera" entry: right-click the Explorer bookmarks file name > select Properties > select the Previous Versions tab > wait for the file search to take place (it can take a while) > if the system has saved previous copies of the file, select a copy from a known-good date and restore it. Not all users have their system settings enabled to make the automatic shadow copies, since the archive takes up disk space, so your ability to recover in this way depends on your Win7 settings. Also, do this sooner, rather than later, since each time you open Opera and it fiddles with the bookmarks file, the shadowing feature will save any altered version - and there's only so much space available in the archives... Win 7 deletes older shadow files to make space as newer ones are saved.
edited to add: If you dig out of the hole you're in, make a safe copy somewhere of that bookmarks file! And keep it updated from time to time. Consider this a wake-up call for creating a decent file backup strategy for your personal data files (eMails, bookmarks/notes, photos, etc, etc), then use that strategy thereafter and keep the backups reasonably refreshed (sometimes very old file backups aren't worth much more than no files). It's how I had to learn... 😉
