Opera Email-MailingLists and Labels keep appearing

  • Once I've customized my UI in Opera Email for windows (I've hidden the Labels and MailingLists sections of the UI) I'm left with only the email folders tree on the left side of the screen. This is how I'd like it to stay.

    However, when I click on some (but not all) of my email folders the Labels section of the UI re-appears below my email folders section.

    If I click Hide Labels it goes away, only to reappear if I select those same certain email folders. How do I prevent this? If I hide a UI aspect, I would expect it to stay hidden until I un-hide it.

    Opera Mail purposely re-enables some things. For example, if you hide the "Mailing Lists" access point and get a new message in a mailing list, Opera will unhide it. Things like this are not configurable.

    For "Labels", I don't remember all the things that trigger its unhiding, but labeling a message might. A label rule that catches a new message might cause "Labels" to unhide. I forget.

    But, what you do is, keep the "Labels" access point unhidden and keep all labels unhidden. Then, create a label named "hidden" and drag any labels you want to hide into it. Then, collapse the "hidden" label to reduce the height the "Labels" access point and those hidden labels takes up. Not the same as what you want, but that's about all you can do. For mailing lists, do the same thing except you create a mailing list folder (right-click -> new folder).

    Also, having a contact in the contacts panel that has more than one email address set in its properties can trigger a few bugs. Best to avoid that and create a contact for each address (and just group them into a contact folder if you want).

  • All well and good but I would like to know just what it is that causes M2 to decide what it is that causes an email to be flagged as a Mailing List and is there any way to prevent it?

  • what it is that causes M2 to decide what it is that causes an email to be flagged as a Mailing List

    There is a field in the message header that Opera uses to see if the message belongs to a mailing list.

    there any way to prevent it?

    Not that i know.

  • This is a shame, because effectively it makes the client impossible to use. Even if I could rearrange the windows it would be fine, but to have mailing lists put at the top is just silly. Sort it Opera.

  • This topic is too old and also Opera Mail stopped being developed a long time ago.
