Move emails from Opera 12.16 to Opera Mail: All labels are gone

  • Hello everyone,

    I want to move from my old Opera 12.16 to next, but in order to do so, I would like to move all my mails including the labels to Opera Mail. When I imported all mails from Opera, the labels do not show in Opera Mail. Since this is my work computer, I have several thousand mails sorted with the labels. Is there a way to export or copy all mails with labels to Opera Mail?

    This would help me greatly, because I would like to stay with Opera software (love it since Opera 7!)

    Thank you!

  • Copy Opera 12 mail folder into Opera Mail's one.

  • Oha, that was very easy. Thank you for your help!

  • Oha, that was very easy.

    If you have Opera 12.16 install at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera" and it's properly (as in all the reg keys are correct) set as the default browser, when you launch Opera Mail for the first time, there will be a new import wizard (above all the other import wizards in the list) that will copy the folder over for you (and contacts.adr, wand,dat and the global mail preferences in operaprefs.ini). But, as you've noticed, it's as easy to do it yourself.
