Leocg, many thanks for your reply, it worked!
I've found autosave.win in the \AppData\Roaming\Opera Mail\Opera Mail\sessions folder and deleted it.
Opera Mail is starting normally again (and my heart rate is getting back to normal...)
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!

This morning, I started Opera Mail/1.0 and I it crashed one second later. This also happened at subsequent attempts. Just before it crashes, I can see that there are multiple mail tabs open.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
This is the crash dump:

Thanks for the instructions. I've used it to prevent Opera from updating on a laptop that's being used in a remote part of the world with (very) slow internet speeds. (Opera was chosen as the default web browser because it has Turbo mode, which speeds up web browsing a lot there.)
What way would you recommend to update Opera when the laptop is in a region with good internet speed? (operaautoupdate.exe, operaautoupdate.licenses and operaautoupdate.version have been renamed)
Can I simply reinstall Opera with the newest version and/or do I have to restore the operaautoupdate files with the original file names?
Thanks for the info. In the Windows section of the old operaprefs.ini file, most of the lines were ending with a '0', except these, ending with a '2':
Contacts Panel Window=0,0,738,865,2
After all, something did go wrong with this mail move from O 12.17 to OM 1: In OM's Advanced Preferences window, unchecking Notifications for new messages and Program event sounds was not persistent and had no effect.
I noticed that in OM's operaprefs.ini, the line Show Notification For New Messages=0 and the complete section [Sounds] was not present. I imported both missing elements from the operaprefs.ini of 12.17 and it seems to work.
@sgunhouse @tomwgf: The current OperaMail installer (Opera-Mail-1.0-1040.i386.exe) offers the option to import all email messages and email settings, right at the beginning of the installation process. It worked for me; more than 20,000 messages in 7 email accounts copied correctly from Opera 12.17 into OperaMail.
Importing email account passwords from 12.17 didn't work.
