  Editing e-mail accounts in Opera 7:

Key Settings:

Incoming Mail Server = follows this format: mail.ispname.com with your ISP's name substituted for "ispname.com".

Outgoing Mail Server = follows this format: mail.ispname.com with your ISP's name substituted for "ispname.com".
      SMTP Authentication (e-mail username) is required to send e-mail.

To edit e-mail accounts in Opera 7, follow these steps:

On the Toolbar, click Mail and select Manage accounts from the menu.

 

Highlight the account in question and click Edit.

 

General tab:

Account name  =  by default, Opera gives the name of the account the name of the mail server.  You can change it to something a little more intuitive.  In this example, I named the account 'Work'.
Full name  =  enter your name or a nickname.
Mail address  =  enter the e-mail address of the account.

Next, click the Servers tab.

 

Servers tab:

Incoming POP server:

Incoming mail server = Follows this format: mail.ispname.com.  Replace the ispname.com with your ISP's info.
Username  =  enter the username of the e-mail account (without @ispname.com (or .net). ).
Password  =  enter the password of the e-mail account.
Important:  passwords are case-sensitive.  Ensure the Caps Lock is disabled.
Port number  =  the default port is 110.

Enabling SMTP Authentication:

SMTP authentication is an important part of your e-mail account configuration.  Without it, you will not be able to send e-mail.  All that is required is a username and a password.

Outgoing SMTP server:

Outgoing mail server = Follows this format: mail.ispname.com. Replace the ispname.com with your ISP's info.
Username  =  enter the username of the e-mail account (without @ispname.com (or .net). ).
Password
  =  enter the password of the e-mail account.
Important:  passwords are case-sensitive.  Ensure the Caps Lock is disabled.
Port number  =  the default port is 25.

Next, select the Incoming tab.

 

Incoming Tab:

There are a few options on the Incoming tab of which you should take note.

Leave messages on server  =  we suggest you don't enable this feature.  If you download the messages on your computer and leave a copy of the messages on the server, after a while, your mailbox will become too full.  E-mail clients have a difficult time accessing what has been downloaded and what hasn't.  They inevitably timeout and you don't get your e-mail.

Check for new messages every #minutes  =  this is a great feature to enable.  While you're online, Opera will check, at the interval you specify, to see if you have e-mail.  You won't have to manually check.

Include account when checking manually  =  this should be enabled.  If this is not enabled, Opera will not check to see if you have mail on the server for this account.

Next, select the Outgoing tab.

 

Outgoing Tab:

Here are a few options you may want to consider:  Contacts and Signatures.

Contacts:  by checking the box Add contacts when sending message, Opera will add automatically to your address book the e-mail addresses to which you send a message.

Click OK to close the window.
