I'm really annyong how to change mail directory in Opera mail 1.0 build number 1044.

  • Hello.

    I couldn't find a way to change the mail directory of Opera mail 1.0 build number 1044.

    I've googled and it looks to add the following to the C:\Users****\AppData\Roaming\Opera Mail\Opera Mail\operaprefs.ini.

    Mail Root Directory=Path

    Path is where my mails are stored and I want to continue to use this after computer format.

    However, This try doesn't work. "About Opera Mail" still shows the same default mail directory.

    How can I change the directory? I did before but...I forgot.

    And I also don't understand why Opera mail blocks user to modify whatever they want in easy way just like outlook. Why it is designed in this way?

  • Did you mistype it here? It goes in the section [Mail]. If that section already exists, add it there. Otherwise add it at the end of the file, as in

    Mail Root Directory={whatever the path is}

    Also note, the location of the profile directory depends on your version of Windows - check in Help > About Opera to make sure it is correct.
