Opera Mail

  • I don't see any segment for Opera Mail on this forum, so I'll ask it here:

    Does Opera Mail -the stand alone version- only notify of new mail when it is minimized on the Taskbar?

    I'm asking because that seems to be the case. Which is fine of course... just wondering.

    (I see the icon on the Taskbar also when Opera Mail is not minimized, but then I get no notification.)

  • I just downloaded and started using the email program. I'm amazed at how good it is so far. I tried several before it and didn't have any luck. I don't even like Thunderbird anymore. Opera really seems to do the trick for me.
    Anyway, I get the notifications in the form of little pop up windows down there on the taskbar. What works for me, though, is going to the customize area down there and for the Opera mail icon, selecting "show icon and notifications." Now every time I get a new email, it's obvious. Icon changes from red to some gray thing. Very eye catching. Not bad considering I thought I'd have to live without notifications altogether.

    Does it give preview of the message?

  • Looks like it displays the subject line.

    That should not be the case. It should notify you whenever. However, notifications are quirky for some people. No explanation as to why.

    You can always close down Opera Mail and edit operaprefs.ini in the preferences folder. Just delete the Show notifications for new messages line under the User Prefs section. That will cause Opera to use the default (of 1), which is to show notifications.
