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:
