Mail No Longer Threaded.. How Do I Fix It?

  • I had my mail in threaded view. Now its no longer in threaded view, its flat. How can I fix this?

  • Click on the wrench icon on the top right of the message list and enable "threaded".

  • You can also override that global setting for each view by clicking the "settings for this view" button on the message list toolbar for a view.

  • Hi burnout and leocg. Looks like it works now. I made the stupid mistake of deleting my email account from Opera and messed it up that way. I think threads work when some folders are not empty, like the 'sent' folder. I could be wrong but its possible, unless burnout or someone here would like to correct me.

  • Thanks burnout and leocg.

    There, wasn't so difficult now, was it ?.

    Not really sure what you mean. Threading works in any list that has threading turned on. It'll work in "All Messages/Sent" too and sent messages will show in a thread in the list if you have "Show Sent" set for that message list (and copies of your sent messages from a mailing list will obviously show in the thread).

    There is a bug in Opera though where messages that you've sent that haven't had any replies yet will be hidden in a list when it's in threaded mode.

    What I mean is, lets say that you had threads before you delete your mail account. Then after you delete then add back the account, all the threads you once had is no longer there. That happened to me, as I've said. So I suspect this happens because the Sent folder was deleted also and so is needed for threads to work. Again, I may be wrong.
