Opera Mail - Finally Made The Break

  • I've been an Opera fan and user for many, many years and if 12.xx was still a viable product, I would still be using it.

    After hanging on to 12.xx for as long as I possible could I jumped in to the version 20 pool. The biggest change actually had to come from within. I had to accept and get used to Opera and Opera Mail being separate entities. After a time it became as second nature as using version 12 only missing a few features but better overall compatibility with most websites. A plus over all.

    But Opera Mail was a whole different bag of worms. While I could send and receive OK, if I was reading a RSS feed when shutting down Opera Mail, when I started it back up there would be dozens if not hundreds of blank spaces in that RSS feed where I left off.

    Also If I went from the RSS feed section to create a new email, that email was limited compared to being in the email section and creating an email from there. I pretty much carefully got around that but if I forgot I got nailed with said issues.

    So I searched around and found out that Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 all have a program called Windows Live Mail; I started using it and have to say it is just so much better. I'm no longer having any problems and the program is both FREE and really works great.

    So good by Opera Mail. I'm sorry to see you go but you had just too many quirks to have the pleasant experience I now enjoy.
