I've used Opera Mail for ages and love it but it does have its drawbacks, plus its no longer being supported. I was wondering what most of you use that have come to the same conclusion. I use several email accounts with different notification/retrieval settings and absolutely need reliable audio notifications.

Opera Mail audio notifications for new mail: Is it reliable for you?Opera for Windows
I'm using an older Win7 machine and with other programs audio notifications seem to work flawlessly so I'm suspicious about Opera Mail. I get them sometimes than other times nothing. I've checked and rechecked the settings to make sure nothing has disabled the notification. I'm perplexed. Can anyone think of what I can check? What would block them?
The latest Opera for Windows won't go to any websites now!Opera for Windows
So I download the latest Chromium Opera to try the built in VPN. It works fine for a while but now it won't go anywhere. It won't even open this website! I can navigate in other browsers fine. What to check? Its like suddenly it put up a firewall and blocked everything. ???
Opera Mail on Win7: Audio notifications are intermittentOpera for Windows
I get audio notifications for incoming mail when the program opens (as if I need them then) but afterwards I get nothing. Other times they work well. I have no idea what to check. Of course my speakers are working fine and other audio functions are fine. Is there a problem with this program and audio notifications?
Advantages of Opera over Iron or Chrome?Lounge
I like the ability to control things. I loved Opera 12 for that but its impossible to use these days as its so incompatible with so many websites, so sad. Now I use Firefox but its also not compatible with a few websites so I'm looking for a Chromium based browser that has more options/control than Google Chrome. Any suggestions? Is Opera a candidate?
Where are Opera Mail folders?Opera for Windows
I was wondering about the folder location of Opera Mail emails, contacts and preferences. I thought I changed the location of the emails and omailbase.dat is there upon a restart as well as the indexer folder. But my email messages aren't there anywhere. Do I need to physically copy them over from the previous location? Is this easy to mess up? They're very important. And do I need to copy the Preferences and Contact files over too or will Opera Mail do that for me if I change their location?
Audio notifications in Win7 often don't work with Opera Mail.Opera for Windows
I am perplexed. Sometimes audio notifications work and sometimes not. All other programs seem to activate audio notifications fine. With Opera Mail its intermittent. I have no idea what to check. I use the Win7 Volume Mixer at C:\Windows\System32\SndVol.exe to be able to adjust individual volume levels for each application. Very handy. Also it tells me if I'm going to get any notifications from Opera Mail. If its absent there ain't goin' to be any notifications for me! I haven't tried restarting Opera Mail at different intervals upon startup (would it help if it was the first thing started or could another program block these notifications from getting through to Win7?). Tis a mystery! Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I love Opera Mail. its relatively lean, very easy to use, very predictable but audio notifications are very important to my work and allow me to be much more untethered to the computer, as they are to most anyone using computers.
Opera Mail: How to change storage location for messages?Opera for Windows

Is it possible to control where your email messages are stored on your computer?
Opera Mail using so much CPU resources when updating FeedsOpera for Windows
This just started recently and I'm using less Feeds than before. Anybody else noticed this?
Can you recommend a better RSS reader? Opera Mail is OK but there are many features it could have I'm finding that are very different from what an email program should do. Different programs for different tasks as they say.

RSS in Opera Mail: Possible to show more of the message?Opera for Windows
I'm quite happy with Opera's RSS reader except it doesn't show much of the message. To see more I have to launch the link and this wastes a lot of time. If I could just get it to read more. Is this under the control of the reader program (Opera Mail) or is dictated by the website? RSS is just a miraculous way of sorting through volumes of info but only if it works the way the user needs it to work.
If Opera Mail can't control this are there any other RSS readers that can?
