Upgraded to Windows 10, where is Opera Mail?

  • Hello,

    I upgraded my system to Windows 10, but can't find Opera Mail anymore on my system??? I have literally 100,000+ emails and I'm concerned now. All I see is regular Opera.

    Help Please!!

    Thanks

  • When I go to c:/users/xxxx/AppData/Local/Opera Mail/ There is an operamail.exe but when I open it, it asks me to create an email account as if I have none. I'm kind of freaking out right now.

    Under Local/Opera Mail/Opera Mail/mail

    I do see my accounts.ini that has my accounts in there and signature.txt files. But I'm sort of lost what to do here, do I do a fresh install of Opera Mail and will it find this data?

  • Look for a file called operaprefs.ini under c:/users/xxxx/AppData/Local/Opera Mail/ , it's probably under a folder called profile.

    With Opera Mail closed open that file in a text editor and edit those lines (Check if they don't exist already):

    [Mail]
    Mail Root Directory=c:/users/xxxx/AppData/Local/Opera Mail/mail

    Save the file, close the editor and open Opera Mail. It should see your data know.
