why do my gmail folders get pulled in but not yahoo ones

  • Have a number of addresses which I want in opera.

    How do I create or pull in exising folders for each address. I want the folders with the respective address and not under labels?

  • If the accounts are IMAP accounts, the folders are available. If they are POP3 accounts, then the server can't tell the mail client about the folders. So ... if Yahoo is still only providing POP3 access to their mail accounts, that is the reason - talk to them.

  • Yahoo has IMAP support. In Opera Mail, if you use an email address in the new account wizard and choose IMAP, the Yahoo IMAP settings should be automatically configured. After the account is set up though, one needs to goto "Menu -> Mail -> IMAP Folders" and make sure they're subscribed to all the folders they want.

    If Yahoo IMAP acts funny, close down Opera (start it and close down Opera again if you just set up the account) and edit incomingN.txt in the mail folder (where N is the number for the account as seen in accounts.ini). Set Force Single Connection=1 if it isn't already set. Also, make sure QRESYNC is disabled in there too. They should be set properly for Yahoo IMAP automatically, but I forget if they actually are.

  • Thank you, done it.
