Opera Mail does not display all HTML mails

  • I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum, but i couldn't find a forum specific to Opera Mail.
    I have the problem that version 1.0.1040 does not display all my mail. Specifically there are some HTML mails which Opera refuses to display "correctly", it just displays the replacement text-only part - which in some cases isn't useful at all. Unfortunately one online shop sends "See html Part for details" as text-only replacement. I did save the mail as an html file and was able (after stripping the headers and other attachments) to display it in a regular browser.

    This forum is perfect for the windows version of Opera Mail. Just always mention "Opera Mail" in the thread title like you did or prefix the title with "Opera Mail - ".

    Click the wrench icon at the top right of Opera and make sure "prefer plain text" isn't checked.

    Also, do not use low-bandwidth mode or "do not download attachments". Or, if you do, right-click the message and choose "fetch complete message".

    If that still doesn't work, I'd have to see the full source of the message as an mbs file (ctrl + s) to tell you if it's a bug with Opera or something messed up in the message source itself.

    I feel indescribably stupid now. It is inexplicable to me how that option could possibly have escaped my notice, especially since I was looking for it for two weeks now. Thank you very much!

    You're welcome. It should be unchecked by default. Not sure how it got checked.
