Can omailbase.dat be rebuilt?

I have 20 years of email, first in Opera and then in Opera Mail. Today, shortly after a power outage, I could no longer view any mail. My omailbase.dat is only 4K, so it must be trashed. My question is: Can I rebuild omailbase.dat?

You can manually trigger a database check, which can fix some simple corruption in omailbase.dat. If can't fix really bad corruption though. It sounds like yours was wiped out and a new one was created.
As for rebuilding omailbase.dat, you can't. You can only rebuild the search index. However, you can start with a new mail folder and import your old messages back in from the old mail folder.
