[Solved]Opera Mail: How to move and save messages?

  • Found some messages in my Trash that I need to move back to the Inbox. There doesn't seem to be any way of doing this.

    Also, is it possible to backup certain messages in the Inbox? I realize I can export mail but that means I export the whole whack of messages.

    I don't use Opera Mail since a long time but I remember there was some undelete button on trash view.

    If I remember correctly you can save a message like you save a web page.

  • I remember there was some undelete button on trash view.

    Yes. The trash button switches modes when in the trash view. Clicking it works as undelete. The button should be blue too. One can still click the drop-down next to the button to get other functions.

    One can also right-click on a trashed message, goto "delete" and choose "undelete".

    I can export mail but that means I export the whole whack of messages.

    You can ctrl + s to save a single message if you want. You can also, create a label, drag what messages you want to it, right-click on the label and choose to export the label. Then, you can delete the label if you want. See https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/wiki/m2tips/export_messages for more info.

  • Looked again and Undelete is under Delete. A lot of people would miss that. Its not like they're lacking vertical space here.

    Saving messages: Thanks to you I persevered. Sure enough under File there are those magical words called Save As. I can highlight the specific messages I need and POOF. Saved. Awesome.

    THANK YOU!!!
