Importing folders from outlook

  • I have just switched from Windows Live Mail to Opera Mail. How do I import all the folders that I have on Outlook (and also on Live Mail)? All I am receiving are new messages. Thanks for any help with this.

  • I believe importing from Live Mail is not supported. This is a shame, and I was wondering how to submit suggestions for improvements.
    Anyboy can help?
    Thanks

  • Are those folders local or remote (in the server)?

    If they are remote ones, i guess that setting an Imap account should be enough.

    Opera Mail stopped being developed a long time ago.

  • Opera mail doesn't have folders. It does have labels though where you can create a label and set "hide these messages from other views" in the label's properties to simulate a folder.

    In WLM, what you need to do is export a single folder as eml files and use a converter to convert them to mbox files. (eml2mbox). Then, you can create the label in Opera, import those mbox files, select them and apply the label to them. Then, you repeat the process for other folders.

    You can do the same thing with Outlook's folder files (I think pst files) with a pst to mbox converter.
