Opera Mail - add "archive" functionality

  • I love Opera Mail, but I recently run into a quota limit on one of my accounts. To my horror I discovered that there's no easy way to archive messages.

    I tried moving large messages to a Local folder, but it doesn't work. I'm trying a workaround through export - I'll see if this works.

    Anyway, there really should be an archive functionality, or at least please enable moving messages from IMAP account to Local Folder.



  • Opera Mail stopped being developed about three years ago.

    And by the way, suggestions and requests should be made in Suggestions Box.

  • It seems I've found a workaround, but it's very laborious:

    1. Create a label for large emails
    2. Sort emails by size and label them
    3. Export label
    4. Import label into a separate local account (archive)
    5. Delete messages in the "large emails" label.

    It would be really helpful if there was a menu option to accomplish all this, or even to just archive all emails by date (regardless of size).

    It would be also helpful if Opera Mail could display message size.

    Allowing to move messages between accounts IMAP<->POP, etc, would also help.

  • Ooops - sorry. I was thinking I am posting in the suggestion box.

    Anyway, it's too bad opera mail is not being developed. Perhaps you guys could release the code and the community would pick up?
