Transfer emails to new pc?

  • Hi, I just got a new computer and have installed Opera Mail and everything, but I want to move some important emails from my old computer to my new one. I've been scouring the innertubes but haven't been able to get a good answer on how to do this. Can someone help?

    Thanks much!

  • You could just copy your entire mail folder (and all subfolders) to the new computer. If that's just too much, then you'd need to create a new label (folder) containing those messages. When you right-click on any access point in the left panel, you'll see one of the options is Export ... (the dots indicate it brings up a dialog) It will export all the messages shown in that access point to a standard *.mbs file which you can then import into Opera Mail on the new computer. So create a label, drag all the messages you want to transfer into it, then export that label.

  • Great, I'll try that. Thanks for your quick response!
