opera 12 mail image blocking

  • when getting mails in opera 12, there is usually the option "this message contains blocked images" and then one can tick "always load images from ..."
    where can i revoke the choice for a mail address, when i ticked it before?
    cannot find, where this is saved?
    or where is the option to reset this for all mails or to block every external download embedded in html mails?

    is there an option, where html is not allowed and its converted in just text mail?
    thanks!

  • Opera can be set to "Prefer HTML" or "Prefer text", but if a message has only an HTML part you can't force it to be converted to text.

    Looks like you'll have to edit a settings file to remove that "Always load images from (email address)", as it isn't part of Contacts. Let me look into it ...

    ok, but somehow block all external content from the html?

    i guess, but i didnt find where these mail adresses are stored, so i can delete a specific one..

    thanks for looking!

  • Open a message from the contact in question and left-click the From header. There you should be able to uncheck the "load images" box.

  • Index.ini:

    [Index N]
    Name=test@example.com
    Flags=258 (default) | 1282 (Load Images)
    

    Note that the flags value is an integer whose bits represent a bunch of different settings for the contact. While it might be 258 | 1282 for an address that's not in contacts, the integers might be different if other settings are active for the address like "Follow". I don't know all the setings that are supported and which bit is for which setting.

  • In other words, subtract 1024 if the value of Flags is between 1024 and 2047. Useful to know.

  • I forgot. I do know what all the bits are for. I just have to look at the file from my old website. I'll post details just for future reference when I get a chance.

    actually, this did the job, as easy as it sounds..
    but good to know where the values are stored and perhaps, what to block further maybe.
    thanks!

  • Topic closed as solved.

  • @burnout426 wanted this added to have it in a convenient place:

            var flag_names = [
                "index_flags_visible",
                "index_flags_ascending",
                "index_flags_hide_from_other",
                "index_flags_mark_match_as_read",
                "index_flags_watched",
                "index_flags_ignored",
                "unused",
                "index_flags_view_expanded",
                "index_flags_serch_new_message_only",
                "index_flags_auto_filter",
                "index_flags_allow_external_embeds"
            ];
