I want to keep records of received and sent emails.  They have to be in mailboxes or folders so I can have the important ones collected in their own groups,

 

And the trashed ones too, which somtimes I have to recall.

 

I can't find any knobs in Opera Mail for doing this.  Can someone help me please?

 

Thank you kindly

Have you seen the Opera Mail tutorial? http://www.opera.com/help/tutorials/mail/setup/

Right hand pane is a subject called 'sorting mail'. See if thats something you can use. It's been years since I used Opera Mail. It was integrated in the browser then. I've forgotten everything I used to know about it.

Thanks, but that's not it.  They have a scheme that they call "Labels" but it's useless because it doesn't remove the message from the "Received" list.  If you label a message, and drag it to the "Label", and then delete it from the "Received" display, it deletes from the Label thing too.

 

I think that this is silly because the whole reason of putting emails somewhere is so they're out of the active list but still retrievable if necessary.

Thats one of the reasons I went with Thunderbird. Now it's all coming back to me.

Look at the comparison chart: How is Opera Mail different?

Doesn't look like what you want to do is possible.

I'm just using Opera Mail because I need something that works while I'm setting up.

 

Is Thunderbird okay?  I was a whiz on Eudora but it doesn't seem to want to work on my new Windows 7 computer.  If I could go back to Eudora I'd be perfectly happy.

 

But if Thunderbird is better, tell me about it....

It's free and relatively easy to set up. I'm no mail whiz by anybody's stretch. Even I was able to create my three accounts. It does the folder thing for organizing your mail. Lots of people use it so there's sufficient peer to peer support. Only you can decide if it suits your needs. If it doesn't work for you it didn't cost you anything but time to try it.
