Opera Mail – mail client from the makers of the Opera browser
What should be the local email client it is possible to argue indefinitely. Some people prefer stranded programmes with lots of graphical effects, some people prefer minimalism and simplicity. In General, it is a matter of taste, but there is a minimum you should have a every good mail program. First, it supports work with different mail servers, second, this sorting and filtering of correspondence for the given parameters, thirdly, the client must support a local viewing and storage of mail, including attachments. Fourth, the mail client should have a convenient and powerful search.
Everything else, for example, work with RSS feeds welcome, but provided that the additional functions do not interfere with the main job. One of these clients can be referred Thunderbird, if for some reason with the products of Mozilla you are not friends, we advise you to pay attention to Opera Mail – email client from the infamous developer of the Opera browser. It is lightweight, easy to handle, with a pleasant and convenient interface.
The recommended installation is to choose the default folder, and, on the custom tab, as all emails and attachments the program will save to your directory. And the space on the system drive to save money, and save the data, if you suddenly have to reinstall the system.
When the installation window opens where you are prompted to select the type of account (mail, newsgroups, mail). Select «Mail» in the form field enter the Name, Email and organization name. Next, the wizard prompts you to specify the type of mail account. Two such types: POP3 and IMAP. The choice depends on your preferences.
The first would be preferable, if the work email you are going only on the local and also the only computer. When I download the emails on the PC via POP3 the last will be automatically deleted from the server only if the settings are not enabled the option to save mail on the server. The changes on the device will be local.
The IMAP Protocol is considered more universal. It supports data synchronization on the server, allowing access to attachments to different devices. In turn, changes made on one device will appear on others.
Special introduction the client interface is not needed. To the left there is panel sort, in the center displays the list of incoming and outgoing letters, in the right pane displays the contents of the letter. Correspondence can be sorted by different parameters, monitor, send to spam, mark as read, add personal tags, to perform a full-scale search. A simple visual HTML editor, allowing to insert into outgoing message transfers, images, hyperlinks, Superscript and spectate, draw lines in the form of lists, change the color, the headset and the weight of the font.
In General, any claims to Opera Mail is not, however, from errors when creating and sending messages the program is not insured. Most common authentication error when connecting to the new email account. The reasons for such behaviour can be multiple, but most often it becomes disabled IMAP on the server, whereas in the program it is already selected.
