Need a forum category just for Opera Mail

  • There should be a forum category just for Opera Mail. As I see it, Opera Mail users post in the Geral Opera forum which also includes the browser.

  • I agree with you. Find Opera Mail discussions is a hard work.

  • It is my belief that Opera mail will soon disappear entirely. So few use it that it isn't really financially advisable for the company to bother with it. Having a forum category for it seems irrelevant.

  • I subscribe to the Windows, Mac and Linux forum feeds here in Thunderbird and have a saved search that searches in those feeds for messages that have "mail" or "m2" or "accounts.ini" in the subject or "accounts.ini" in the body.

    That catches most of them for me. Not all though.

    I of course always suggest that Opera Mail threads have "Opera Mail - " prefixed in the thread title, which helps a lot.

    The good thing about not having a specific forum is that when an Opera Mail thread is posted in a the Windows or Mac or Linux forum, I know what OS they're using. The way it was before with a specific Opera Mail forum, you'd constantly have to ask them what OS they're using and a lot of times they still wouldn't tell ya.

    But, that's really the only good thing.

  • Not that they ever released a Linux version, but you'll still catch the mail in O12 threads.

  • "The good thing about not having a specific forum is that when an Opera Mail thread is posted in a the Windows or Mac or Linux forum, I know what OS they're using. "

    I subscribe to a car forum where in order to post, you have to select a catagory such as engine, electrical, etc. Could do the same with Windows, Linux, Mac, etc ... if the forum software provides such capability.

  • Categorising/tagging has been suggested by me.
    Well, and as search is deficient, after that we may dump it altogether providing we could search with those "category"/tags terms. At least they could make a new search instead of existing one considering the new feature.
