@burnout426 said in Opera 12 Mail: import old mail does not work:
Try this first. After you add the mbs file in the import dialog and it doesn't show up, wait a while. Wait a couple hours if needed. Opera might be processing the file and taking a while because it's so big. If that solves it, note that the actual importing of messages will take a long time after that too.
I tried this but Opera 12 does not seem to react. After I select the file and click open nothing really changes. Opera does not freeze or act as if it is doing anything. I could immediately select another file...
I will try and leave it there for one night, but I doubt it will work.

Should I try to import the entire folder in AppData\Local\Opera\Opera x64\mail\store
The entire accountN folder (where N is the number for the account as seen in accounts.ini), yes. You can try that if the other thing doesn't work.
I think this is my second option. However, I fear I may loose the sent folder as they are not separate in the accountN folder, right? Any suggestions?
Another option is to look for an mbox file splitter on the net that will split the messages out of the large mbs file to separate ones. You can then put all the separate ones in a single folder and import that folder. It'd be kind of like importing from the mail\store\accountN folder. Just like importing from the accountN folder, it might be easier for Opera to process.
I will leave this a s third best. Any suggestion for a decent mbox file splitter?
