Opera Mail Bug

  • Hello, I didn't see any other way to report this bug, and the support link from within Opera Mail invited me to search/post on the forums.

    I'm using the 1.0 build 1040 on Windows 8-x64. If I search for emails (using the Search mail box), it will return a list of seemingly matching results, but if I click on them to read them, it's actually another email that would not have matched the search string. This is reproduceable with any search string.

    Please let me know if there's any other information you could use, or if this should go into some other subforum.

  • Close down Opera Mail and delete the "lexicon" folder in the "mail" folder (see help -> about Opera Mail for the location). When Opera Mail starts back up, it'll rebuild the search index. Check the database too though.

    Note also that Opera can only search the parts of a message that have been downloaded. If you use low-bandwidth mode where only part of a message is fetched (until you right-click the message and choose "fetch complete message"), Opera will only be able to search the part it knows about. Same situation with IMAP and low-bandwidth mode or IMAP and just "do not download attachments (HTML bodies are considered attachments). Also with IMAP, the full message isn't downloaded until you open it. That means only messages you've opened with be fully searched. You can fix this on the "Incoming" tab in the account's properties by setting "make all messages available offline". The reason you have to do that is Opera doesn't support server-side searching.

    Opera Mail isn't being developed anymore so reporting a bug won't help. There's no where to report one for Opera Mail anymore anyway.

    For support, you just have these forums (prefix thread titles with "Opera Mail - " please and post the thread in the appropriate Windows, Linux or Mac forum) and the operabrowser reddit and maybe irc.opera.com.
