Opermail: HTML Mails Displayed As Text

  • Hi everyone,

    I have just installed Opera 25, discoverd there is no more mailclient inside, so installed operamail.
    Neither my old mails from good old opera nor new mails are shown in HTML format.
    Also, there seems to be no way to activate it.

    How come?

    Help appreciated!

  • Look in the tool bar for an icon/button that looks like a magnifying glass on a sheet of paper, its tool tip should say 'Default Mail Settings' when you hover your cursor over it.

    Click that icon/button and look just over half way down the menu/list for 'Prefer plain text' and remove the tick.

  • Thank you for your help.
    In my German operamail the icon is a wrench, and the option is named like "show text if possible" - I just didn't realize it yesterday.
    Anyway, it's unticked and everything is fine now.


  • It is a wrench (aka spanner if you're British) ...
