Many thanks for the info, will use the "import generic mbox" to retrieve the email. I save important emails to the hard drive so they can be backed up to a second (external) media. Leaving them 'pinned' in the Opera environment does not provide any backup (as far as I can see) and I dare not risk losing them through HD failure. Many thanks again - Bob Deb

Re-displaying "Saved As" emails to hard drive.Opera for Windows
Using the "File - Save As" menu in Opera Mail results in a selected email being saved onto the hard drive. However, I am unable to retrieve and display the saved email in Opera. Usually this is done by clicking to open the saved file and selecting the program with which you want it to open in. Although Opera Mail opens, the saved file is not displayed. The first thing I noticed is that the saved file does not have an extesion, so I renamed it adding the extension .eml. This allowed the file to open in Win Live Mail (which I am hoping to supersede and do away with) but again opening it in Opera Mail did not display the email. Would appreciate any assistance you can offer. Many thanks - Bob Deb

Inserting Images into Opera emailsOpera for Windows
Have just installed and started using Opera Mail V1.0.1033. I occasionally need to insert an image(s) into my composed emails (as distinct from "attaching"). The drop down menu associated with this has the "image" entry dimmed so that it cannot be accessed, allowing only emoticons to be inserted. Is there some way I can activate image insertion? Many thanks.
