Strange, but it's not even listed on the Opera extensions page. I noticed in the comments on the WOT blog that it says - "it takes a while for Opera to review the add-on. It's currently pending review" - I came across it on Twitter, of all places, so it does have it's uses after all.

I'm using Windows but it says the extension is for Linux and Mac as well. I'll definitely be using Opera more now with the release of this add on, it's the only one I'm really bothered about, although I do have a few more installed and they work well.

deya thank you very much for your find,and sharing it with us all. Works a perfectly with Opera 11. Really like the direction Opera are moving in with this latest release love using it. I have a few other extensions to go with this WOT one,mainly Lastpass and addsweep,but defiantly will not overload myself with them. Myself personally and IMO Opera does not need too many,but I am sure we will all have our own and different favorites. Thanks again deya.

Can someone please explain how to add extra folders to the inbox of my main mail account (Linux)?

I can see this in the tutorials but doesn't appear to be working for me with this release unless I'm missing something obvious

Not sure if these two links will help you MidnightCowboy,but the first one has helped me out on more than one occasion,and the second link maybe will help with the fact you are using the new version of Opera. Hope they help in some way and they are not a dead end for you.

I don't think that you can move the folders you've created into the inbox. The folders I created show in the drop down menu in the 'check mail' window where is says 'please select a folder' so I just check each folder from there. But you have to create a filter for mail to be sent to the new folders you made - you've done that? - otherwise everything just goes straight to the inbox by default.

Not sure if that's what you mean, and I don't have Linux so I don't know if it's any different to how it works in Windows. Have you created new folders? - or is that the question and I'm misunderstanding it?

Also, just something to add about the WOT extension. It seems that if you upgrade from Opera 10 to 11 via the auto update then WOT won't work properly, won't block sites and give warnings. Seems to be XP, not sure about Vista and Win 7. This is from the WOT blog;

"Allowing Opera to auto-update retains old version settings, at least on Windows XP home SP3, that interfere with WOT's ability to display a warning screen.

Remedy:
Completely remove Opera 10.x or lower before installing Opera 11.x and then installing extensions such as WOT
."

Just in case anyone is experiencing a problem with it.

One strange thing occurs with Opera if I try and to move an email to a folder. The drop down list shows the folders but when I scroll down and attempt to click on the appropriate folder it immediately scrolls at high speed to the bottom of the list. I am unable (no matter what I try) to select and move my email to the folder of my choice.


I have no such problems with hotmail.

Anyone else have this problem?

Maybe I'm not explaining adequately what I want to do here

What I need is two separate folders entitled "X" and "Y" which can be anywhere so long as I can move mails into them. In Thunderbird and other clients, right clicking somewhere in the account tree enables a "create new folder" option with a corresponding right click on an email to move stuff into there. This is what I can't see how to create in Opera 11.

Ok MC I think I get your drift now, will try to keep this as short as possible. Right click the tab Labels in the mail tree, add new label ( which really is add new folder ). Right click new label then choose properties this will give you options to change name of label ( folder to most people ) and also options to change the icon etc! etc! Then if you want to move a message to this Label do not open message in full view, just either open inbox,recieved, or unread folder,right click on message you want to move and choose label as tab which then gives you the option to move message to which ever folder / label you wish to.

@ MC - The way I do it is this;

At the top of the mail window click 'Folders'
In the folders window type 'Y' in the box under 'Create Folders' then click the button 'Create'
You should now see the new folder 'Y' in the folder names list

Repeat and create another folder 'Z' - Y and Z will now be visible in the list of folders

Go back to the inbox. You should now see the new folders listed in the drop down menu between the 'Move To' and 'Delete' buttons

Check the box at the side of an email you want to move
Select either Y or Z from the drop down menu between 'Move To' and 'Delete'
Then click 'Move To' - and the email will be moved to that folder

The drop down between 'Move To' and 'Delete' will only show folders you've created, it's empty until you do.

If you want to open folder Y or Z you select them from the 'Please select a folder' drop down menu at the top right.

@ torresmagnifico - I'm not getting the high speed scrolling you mention. Tried all sorts but can't replicate that. I just move down the list, select a folder and it opens.

Thanks guys - yes labels instead of folders, no wonder I found that bit confusing

I'm sure one of these helpful posts will solve the problem and I shall attack this with renewed enthusiasm in the morning.

Can you believe that I have a choice of two different connection types here, both of which have been on and off all day. If I had much hair left I'd already have pulled it out since lunch

Thanks both
