  • I'm using opera mail (not the opera browser) and I've got a message stuck in my outgoing queue. I don't want the message to send because the attachment is too big. I can cancel it each time it tries to send, but I can't figure out how to view the queue and permanently delete it. Under my mail account, the only options are 'Inbox' and 'Sent.' Where's the outbox/queue?

    Here's my version info:
    Mac OS X

  • I used the search bar to find the email and delete it. Still, it seems weird that you can't directly view the queue.

  • The queue is under "All Messages/Outbox". If that view is not there, click the wrench icon on the mail panel toolbar and check it or reset the mail panel to defaults.

    In "All Messages/Outbox", click the "Settings for this view" button on the toolbar above the message list and make sure "show sent" is checked since queued messages are considered sent messages.

    Also, when viewing "All Messages/Outbox", make sure all accounts or the account the message is for is currently selected. See "right-click in mail panel -> show messages from" (which resets to "all accounts" on startup).

    There is no Outbox view under the individual account access points in the mail panel. There's just the one for all accounts under "All Messages".

    Also make sure the "mail address" is set on the "General" tab in each mail account's properties so the queued message is associated with the correct account.

  • I used the search bar to find the email and delete it.

    The search field has the ability to search all views, which might be why you found it that way.
