saving preferences in opera mail

  • hello,

    In Opera Mail I want to save the preference not to check spelling while composing an email. I have to uncheck this option everytime I compose a mail. A sollution for te same problem with not saving the preference 'use HTML formatting' I found on this forum (changing a line in account.ini). In which .ini-file can I save the preference not to check spelling while composing an email?

    thanks!

  • operaprefs.ini (seel help -> about Opera Mail for the location). Edit the file while Opera is closed.

    You can search for the setting in opera:config in Opera 12 to see what the name of the setting is and what section it should go under.

    In this case, what you want to do is set:

    Spellcheck enabled by default=0
    

    under the "User Prefs" section.

    Or, add opera:config to Opera Mail.

  • thank you!

  • thanks, it works although now opera opens with a new message-screen instead of the list with email. Latest link is interesting but I can not use because I use osx instead of windows.

    But: thanks, the spellcheck problem is solved.

    At the top right of the mail screen, there's a slanted wrench icon on the toolbar. You can click it to change the layout.

    Or, if needed, close down Opera and delete autosave.win in the sessions folder. See "Help -> about Opera" for the location.

    If you can find the file on OSX, you should be able to modify it just like you do on Windows.
