Opera Mail downloads old messages as empty, 'no subject' emails

  • Hi, guys. Have such an issue at several PCs: got two domains at a server, and five IMAP e-mail addresses at one of them. Opera Mail from time to time (almost every day) downloads old messages as empty mails with '(no subject)' only at one of these addresses, putting today date and time. When you click the message it is loaded and the real time is shown. All the settings of these five boxes are identical. Moreover, have no such problem at one of PCs with the same settings. How to solve the issue? Would be very grateful! Thanks in advance!

  • Sounds like a corrupted database. This might fix it. If not, there are a few things you can try.

    If it's an issue in a folder other than "Inbox", you can unsubscribe from the folder and resubscribe. If that doesn't work, you can delete the IMAP account and add it back in. If that doesn't work, you'll need to close down Opera and rename the mail folder, start Opera back up and add all your accounts back in. You' have to recreate your labels and put the messages back in them though.

    If your other PC has no problems and has the exact same setup, you can use its profile folders to replace yours and all should just work.
