Many thanks for your fast answer. Did everything you suggested, including checking password on the service provider's site, and calling their help desk to check the server settings. "Reply" function still didn't work, and now that (after 2 weeks absence) there were emails waiting on the server, couldn't retrieve them! After second call to help desk, during which they took control of my PC and tried several settings, I finally tried reinstalling Opera Mail, after deleting it in Windows control panel. No luck. I wonder if there is something left in the Registry which is the cause of the problem, but I'm not going to fiddle with that. So it's goodbye to Opera, after many, many years. But thanks anyway for your help, not the first time.

RE: "Reply" mail command doesn't workOpera for Windows
"Reply" mail command doesn't workOpera for Windows
Windows 7 PC. Lost all my emails yesterday - nothing visible at start-up, including Sent, Trash. Uninstalled Opera Mail, downloaded latest version [1.0, Build 1040] and re-installed it. Spent a couple of hours re-configuring program and importing the lost messages. Now I find the "Reply" function doesn't work - after typing the reply and pressing "Send" the email just vanishes, it's not even in the trash and doesn't get sent. Nor does it appear in "Drafts". The "Compose" function works normally and emails typed it it get sent. If that is a bug in the yesterday's download, can I install a new download over the present installation, without removing it and without having to re-configure the program? Or any other suggestions?
Opera Mail can't find stored messagesOpera for Windows
Windows 7 system. When I launched Opera Mail today I was able to send and receive emails as usual, but all the emails in my Inbox (Unread or Received) had vanished - there were about 40 listed yesterday. Also all Sent emails. And all older emails linked to Contacts. Rebooted system - same. Un-installed program and re-installed it from new download - same. All the emails since 2011 seem to be on harddisk in folder "store" [88.6MB, 299 folders]. Tried importing them but only a few older emails arrived, not the 2015 emails I need. When I try again importing from Users\ . . \AppData\Local\Opera Mail\Opera Mail\mail\accounts.ini I get a New Account Wizard which tells me:
"The following File appears to be in use by another application
. . .\mail\omailbase.dat
To retry close the application that uses that file"
I have launched no other application (though one may be running launched by Windows).
What can I do to read my recent files, including in another program if I can't retreive them in Opera Mail - thanks!
