For one moment I thought I wasn't able to post a comment. I can't say I was a heavy user of Opera particularly the mail element. Having said that I had just set Opera as my search provider and was about to complete the process of completing an address book that was without one single error as regards phone numbers (out of date) and Zip Codes.
I can read my e-mails and will now copy them for historical purposes. I can see no reason why this shouldn't be possible although validity in a court or domestic argument may prove rather pointless.
I received NO WARNING about the end of Opera Mail. I had no idea it was even in the wind and I'm surprised that I didn't read about it elsewhere. Where was all the gloating?
Establishing Opera as my search provider had followed yet another article I had read concerning just how good a search provider it is and unlike Chrome and Firefox consumed so much less of memory and download capacity for those who have limitations.
I'm pleased the world hadn't ended for me. If this were to happen to other mail clients, I'd be screwed but at least they would have warned me. This is worrying and now must question if I should dump it for my search activities.
I REPEAT, I HAD NO WARNINGS AND I KEEP EVERYTHING!!
