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.
Just wondering deya can you only do this way you described if you have set up a IMAP account rather than a pop account? I have set up Opera to recieve my mail using pop as my main mail account does not support Opera via IIMAP. I can see that it is possible to add folders this way as you described but not sure if this can be done when the server is set to pop.

I've not made any changes other than to the folders and filters in Opera mail, I use another service to forward emails to my handsets and vice versa. So if you've set up a POP account maybe you're right.

Thanks again guys - I am using a POP setup but I've found the label settings to be fine for what I need

Must say I'm quite impressed with Opera now and judging by the amount of downloads since this version went final, I'm not alone.

Lack of easy to set up extensibility compared with Firefox was always the issue holding Opera back but this release addresses many of these concerns and can only continue to improve further.

With doubts being expressed about the content of some mail clients and the memory now required to run Thunderbird a browser integrated client is another option to consider. Opera does this better than SeaMonkey and IMO is easier to set up than any of them

I think that's a strong point for Opera mail because it is easier to set up. SeaMonkey is very good and I use it constantly, the 2.1b1 version, but I stopped using the built in email because it scrambles my brain setting it up, for some reason. I use a Blackberry more and more for emails now so once they're set up and working, as far as I'm concerened, they're best left alone. So I won't be tempted to mess that up by changing any settings to have Opera mail forwarded.

As for Opera itself, the browser, I'm just pleased there's another good one to choose from. Variety is the spice of life

The site having been a little quieter over the holiday period I took a look at how Opera 11 runs on Windows too as well as Linux. The more I use this browser the more I begin to appreciate it. I haven't quite got my head round all the extensions yet but that's only because they are not what I've been used to (exactly) with Firefox.

Today with Windows 7 I began to experience the slow start up with Firefox as reported by a lot of other users so sadly it's now in the bin. I tried disabling this that and the other, looking at what my security programs might have done etc. but something demanding this level of attention IMO isn't worth having it

Opera mail has got to be just the easiest set up possible for someone looking for a third party collector and the whole program is just so neatly put together.

I'm now using Opera for everything although I still have Iron if I feel like a change

Gave Opera 11 a try on Linux Mint but it seemed not able to show up my bookmark folders in the bookmarks bar.

Its bookmarks bar does show the bookmarks but not the folders though they were listed under bookmarks bar in the Bookmark Manager. Bookmark folders are well supported in Bookmarks bar of Chrome and Firefox. Have I missed out something?


Bookmark bar doesn't support folders in Opera 11?




Bookmark bar supports folders in Firefox and Chrome:

Worked OK for me.

I don't use the bar at all, but I went into "Bookmarks", "Manage bookmarks" R/C "+ New Folder" which I named and then R/C "Properties" and tick "Show on bookmarks bar".

Thanks MC. I got it now. Each folder can have an option "Show on Bookmarks Bar". Better if the default setting is yes.

Incidentally I find the Virus Total extension very useful for analyzing sites/URL's

Never seen anything that installs this fast: 3-4 seconds with 2-3 clicks - it was super fast installation - got me to think for a min that am I running a portable version...?
