Please suggest me if delete mail folder would be okay

  • Hello ,

    I want to use my standalone Opera this was installed since more than 4 years ago with M2.

    I am happy with this standalone Opera & consider using it for surfing the web but NOT RETRIEVING email anymore.

    Please tell me if I am to delete just the whole ' mail ' folder , and any of the file name in here is better than delete the whole mail.


  • Deleting the 'mail' folder will remove all your email messages, filters and so on. If you really don't need them or have made a backup, you can delete the folder without any implications to the browser part of Opera Presto.

  • leocg, thanks !!

    In this USB standalone installed Opera

    I want to copy to a thumb drive & carry it to paste to my machine B.

    Question is :

    If this is wise to not to copy the 'omailbase.dat - 203,492kb' ?

    ( means, I copy the whole Opera USSSB folder except this 'omailbase.dat - 203,492kb' ? )

    As the Machine B is anyway re-downloading every email from the IMAP even if I carry the 'omailbase.dat - 203,492kb' to the machine B ?

    It is because I spent time just finished on machine A toolbar.ini , keyboard.ini , mouse.ini etc. so that I do not need to do it again in machine B if I copy & paste the whole folder using a thumb drive.

    Would machine B re-dowloading all the mail from IMAP or not if I keep this 'omailbase.dat - 203,492kb' ?

    Thank you very much.
