Opera Mail

  • I am using Opera Mail 1.0 Build 1040 on Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit.
    When I start Opera Mail the program starts twice, there are 2 icons in the taskbar and I can click on either one and the view is the same. I am hoping some one may know of a fix for this please.

  • How are you starting the program? Start menu, desktop shortcut ... or maybe a mail link in some other program brings it up?

  • Thank you sgunhouse "How are you starting the program?"

    It doesnt matter if I start from a shortcut, start menu or the operamail.exe file the program behaves the same way.

    The computer otherwise is fine, I have scanned the computer with Webroot Secure Complete, Malwarebytes and Super Anti Spyware nothing detected.

    I reinstalled Opera Mail over the top of itself and it didn't fix the problem.

    I only use Opera Mail as a newsreader, Office Outlook 2010 is my email client.

  • Even if it does it with operamail.exe itself, right-click on each taskbar button, right-click on "Opera Mail" and goto "properties". On the shortcut tab, see if the target is the same.

    Also, delete sessions/ in the preferences folder while Opera is closed. See help -> about Opera Mail for the location.

  • Hi burnout426
    I deleted the two files and it fixed the issue.
    Thank you for your help
