Opera Mail - Lost everything?

  • Was in opera mail this morning when it froze. I exited and received a message about maintenance, which I dimissed (thinking OM would finish it's maintenance on my next boot). When I opened OM, it had lost everything and initiated the new account setup dialogue. I dismissed this to see if I could get back and recover my account. It wouldn't let me in without starting a new account, so I put in some details. Everything appears to have gone (labels, emails, contacts).

    Help very much appreciated.

  • See what's in the mail folder (on the drive - using Explorer). If you don't know where your mail folder is, check Help > About Opera Mail - most convenient would be to highlight and copy the path listed, then you can close Mail, open My Computer, and paste the path into the address bar. You'll see a folder named Store ...how many account folders does it contain? If it contains 2, then you should be able to recover the messages from the older account.

  • Thanks for your help. I loaded opera mail tonight and all was back to normal?
