lightweight, separated form.

bring back mail client to the browser.

"Now you have an access to the same great features as in Opera for desktop 12.x"

Except for fact that it's not integrated in the browser, the number 1 feature and the sole reason anyone uses it.

Are you just completely ignoring what everyone says? You keep asking for feedback then come out with this slap in the face.

I agree !

Where is IRC?
Good for you, you have return NNTP, but IRC must be there also!
And again: why I need RSS client in Mail client?! It MUST be integrated into Browser OR this Mail client MUST be ABLE to read COOCKIES from Browser. Now it is useless.

LisandreL Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:19:48 AM

Do not use it as a mail client but as integrated RSS-reader it was great (I came to this note from RSS).
As a separate program it is useless for me.

Matijamatija Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:20:52 AM

I don't care about mail, but one of many reasons I'm using Opera is that I have a built-in RSS reader. I don't want a separate application.

Move it back into the browser, FFS.

How long does it take for you guys to realize that it won't be put back into the browser?! Keep on asking/talking (nagging) about it does not change this fact.

Unrealmirakulix Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:24:44 AM

like it that way. no you can also use the operamail.exe as standard mail client for windows.

without browser it's really trash...

"Final", but no Linux version?

There is a lot of discontent about the separation already.

Here is another different one:
Why to remove mouse gestures?
To operate mail/RSS folders/labels in the panel, gestures are handier than keyboard.

Łukasz Janiklukjan Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:40:09 AM

in the Opera mail, missing several important functions, import contacts from another program, you can add your own folders to the post office and steam and other features, please add

Again no linux version... fxxk...

How long does it take for the Opera decision-makers to realize that most of the ex-Opera users won't use the Chromized "stone-ax" Opera? And the new users won't use too (without billion-dollar marketing campaign and sneaky bundle with Adobe Flash, etc.), because the new Opera can't offer anything that would be a better alternative for the minimal-junkie average users than the most popular and agressive-marketinged Google Chrome, the "OS-built-in" Internet Explorer or the cute, open-source foxie. bigsmile

There are full market coverage... Except the power users (who are few, but at least they are exist).

Thomas vFRaven Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:42:47 AM

Looks OK, but needs to be re-integrated into the browser (or the browser into it).

Bug: Lost all account passwords on update.
Bug: Importing mails showed progress "message 123/0" - I assume the "0" should be the total number of items to process
Bug: Lost "always download pictures from ..." settings
Bug: Lost (the only) feed I was subscribed to
Bug: Lost the "Followed contacts"
Bug: Can't open links from mails in a new tab in the background
It should allow to import everything relevant from an Opera<15 profile, not just the mail accounts.

But: I will not keep an extra mail app open all day (Outlook is open already for work). The beauty of Opera was that I could follow news and communication as it happened, via an unobtrusive panel in my main work tool - the browser.

Make M2 an extension for Opera 15, or open-source the M2 backend (I understand that you won't open-source the whole browser or Presto).
An open-source M2 could be enhanced by the community and maybe later integrated as a community extension into Opera 15+.

jts7 Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:45:26 AM

put it in the browser p or I will use v12

Hoborgoperaton Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:48:07 AM

so what's the point of using this instead of Opera 12.15? :/

or add browser to email client p

eini Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:51:29 AM

I use so many devices, years ago i replaced all my mail clients by a single webmail client, except for one, opera.
The browser integration and RSS reader was very handy.
Now it is just another mail client and for my purposes completely useless.

<irony> A big "Thank You" to your management! </irony>

exterminans Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:55:51 AM

Waiting for the linux version! Thanks for not dropping the mail client completely. Integration into the browser will be missed though.

q-ter Tuesday, June 11, 2013 8:56:28 AM

My list of necessary features mainly from Opera 12 (taken from my thread):
  • resizable tabs with page preview (!! big deal for me)
  • better caching back/forward (avoiding the most useless dialog “Do you want to submit the form again”)
  • "fast forward" prediction (on Google results page etc)
  • selecting text within a link (small but important detail, not possible in Chrome)
  • "Reload picture" menu option
  • "Image properties" dialog (usually user just wants to know pixel dimensions of a image)
  • "Open new tab next to active" and other former options
  • loading bar pop-up on bottom
  • old "View source" design
  • "New private tab" option when right-clicking on the "+" button
  • better accessible stack of closed tabs, better accesible Turbo/Off-road
  • option to lock the smallest zoom level on 100% (otherwise it is hard to determine 100% when pinch-zooming, Safari has this implemented)
  • there could be some indicator of going back/forward when using natice Mac two-finger gesture (Chrome has that, Safari does it better)
  • usefull Shift + arrows shortcut selecting links has came back to Tab
  • pressing Esc on Mac should not leave the fullscreen (now it even gives bigger priority to leaving fullscreen insted of anything else – like hiding the find bar or closing dialog)
  • I presonally would love 2 new keyboard shortcuts "Move tab left" and "Move tab right"

linux coming quite soon,seems its almost ready.

Ashus Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:00:30 AM

I can't turn off the spellcheck. In subject and in the text. Each time I turn it off and close the window, open another one and it's on again. Looks like a bug to me.

ssah1988 Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:00:32 AM

quite faster sorting,searching

guys, which is the best, most stable version before Opera 15?


12.15 (the last one) is really good and stable I think, but forget plugins whatever the version of Opera.

Otherwise, 9.64 or 10.10, but they are much older.

dracodraconair Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:01:47 AM

But it's funny, that mail client is more customizable than browser, rofl.

ssah1988 Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:03:53 AM

It seems most of the absent feature will implement ,but it will take time may be half /quater year.but most will remain

As others have suggested, make the new Opera Mail pluggable into the main web browser.

cyberrufus Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:07:41 AM

Need to add an option to start the program minimized.

АлександрC1er Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:09:24 AM

Please, return Mail/RSS client to Opera 15!

dknippers Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:13:10 AM

Poor Opera devs, working hard on a mail client only to have it shot down. Just forget about the whole mail client, people can just use Gmail or similar services. Please focus on improving Opera 15 instead of doing little side projects like these, people are only complaining about it anyway ;(

Marcomarcopera Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:17:48 AM

If this is an alternative to Thunderbird for people who do not know Opera, this is maybe a good product.
If this is the only alternative for users who use Opera with M2 integrated for years, this is a bullshit ("puttanata" in Italian sounds better).

My unlucky "colleagues" developers, try to send the boys of marketing on holiday in New Zealand for at least two years, and maybe Opera will still be a great product that we enjoyed so far. wink

KonstantinSTNG Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:20:56 AM

Articulated peace of the great Opera (Presto) browser

Why you removed mouse gestures function and its customizability from Opera Mail? For what reason?

netwolf Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:22:23 AM

but in more lightweight, separated form.


That's the reason why hardly anybody is happy about it (but you already know that).

As I stay with 12.15 while looking for a substitute anyway (as long as no severe sec.issues are revealed for 12.x), this release does not really offer much for me...

Igorigorditerni Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:24:15 AM

The only useful thing is that it's portable like Opera 12.15 and it's like M2 in Opera 12.15 but it's missing the IRC function, the Browser and all the other great integrated things that are the only reasons to use it.
So, why we have to use Opera Mail 1.0 instead of continuing the use of Opera 12.15 with M2? No reasons are here.

Bug: when an e-mail arrives in the tray appear the O white icon with the letter instead of the OperaMail icon or the red O.

You can use external sandbox program to minimize security risk with Opera (true Opera).

How long will it take for you and Opera devs to understand, that nobody want's this piece of sh** outside of browser? And most people, who used RSS and mail client built in Opera, doesn't need new Opera without it. The same thing you can get with Chrome, FF or IE

There will be an RSS extension for Opera 15.

dagothur Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:34:08 AM

I agree with pretty much everyone above me. I want Opera Mail integrated with the browser. All the functionality that Opera 12 provides need to be included in your next release if you want to keep your userbase.

rkondo Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:39:11 AM

What has changed compared to the Opera Mail previous version? I want a change log.

Dexter Livingstonstripclubdj Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:48:10 AM

Will you integrate mail client in next Opera releases? Is it so hard to do? Anyway thank you for your work guys.

Have a good one. heart

Romainromainbroute Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:52:13 AM

No thank. I keep Opera 12.15... I need an Internet suite with all tools built-in in one app, not stand alone tools...
