Opera Mail is an integrated news and email client application that comes with the Opera Internet Suite. The earlier versions of this email client were a part of the Opera Browser, but after the release of Opera v15, it became a separate entity. Opera provides users with a range of rich email-based functionalities like support for POP3 & IMAP accounts, contact manager, RSS feeds, spam filtering, etc.

Though a light-weighted email client with an interactive GUI, Opera lacks certain capabilities that are now incorporated in various other email client applications. The foremost one is the delayed synchronization process; secondly, if you are migrating from Windows 7 platform to Windows 10 platform, you can’t keep Opera as the default email client. For Windows 10, you have to move your email data from Eudora to an advanced platform like MS Outlook. Some other disadvantages of using Opera also include slow response time and constant malfunction of plug-ins, extensions, widgets, and other integrated tools.

In order to migrate the mailbox data from Opera to Outlook, first, you need to find the exact location of Eudora’s source database file. Typically, the data is stored in a single database file with MBS as the file extension. MBS is a variant of the MBOX file format. If you are using Opera v15 on a Windows 7 platform, you can locate the database file at the given location:

“C:\Users\name of the machine\AppData\Local\Opera\Opera\Mail”

Once you have located the source database file, you can use a reliable MBOX converter tool to convert the file in Outlook supported format. In this regard, we have highlighted the working of an efficient third-party software Kernel for MBOX to PST Converter. Here is how it works:

  1. Launch the MBOX to Outlook PST converter tool and click Browse to locate Opera Mail’s source database file. Launch MBOX to PST converter software
  2. Select the required MBS file/folder and click OK. Once the file is added, click Finish. Add files to convert
  3. Preview the emails contents by clicking on the mailbox hierarchy located on the left-hand side panel; click Save. Add folder containing the Opera Mail .mbs files
  4. Select the resultant format as PST File (MS Outlook) and click Next. Select file and open
  5. Apply filters to save specific data for your converted PST file. Click Next. Click finish
  6. In case your selected MBS file is large, you can manage the size of your converted PST by using the Split option. Choose the desired partition from the drop-down available under the Split option. You can also add a prefix to the file name in order to give the file a unique identity. Click Next anyways. Click on saving option
  7. Click Browse to provide a destination path to save the converted file and click on the Finish button to execute the conversion. Select PST as an output type
  8. Once the conversion is completed, the resultant file is saved to the specified location. Click on OK to finish the task. Apply filter option
