  • I am trying to import an MBOX file. I go through the process and choose the right file but the "import" button is greyed out and i can't do anything. I can see the folders and all and have checked them but nothing. A lot of them are grey as well.

  • Make sure you're using "Menu -> settings -> import and export -> import mail -> import generic mbox -> add mbox"?

    Also, you can't import into an IMAP account, so make sure the account you're choosing to import into is a new pop account or an existing pop account.

    Does the mbox file have more than one message in it?

    Whether it has only one message or not, make sure each message starts with a "From " line (not referring to the From: header line). If not, Opera will ignore it.

  • Thanks for the reply. I was trying to import into an IMAP account so that was my problem.

    Thanks again.


  • Thank You for your POST. Helped a lot.
