    Popular Email Clients Reviewed - Opera Mail (M2)


    (Page 4 of 6 )

    Opera Mail is incorporated into the freely distributable Opera Internet suite along with the web browser. It is both an email and news client supporting POP3, IMAP, Atom, and RSS feeds. It is a very discrete and lightweight client. Its interface is quite different compared to stand alone clients because it is totally incorporated into and acts as a part of Opera. You manage emails as you would with an internal feed manager.

    The most required features aren't forgotten. It has an anti-spam system that works on both algorithms: automated and learnable (Bayesian). Opera Mail automatically sorts the mail into two independent groups: with or without attachments. You have different view options, such as to display only mailing lists, etc. Its search function works fine.

    Moreover, you can label some of your mail (i.e. funny, valuable, important, to do, etc.), so you can find them easier later on. Some of its major drawbacks are that the user cannot format composed mail since only plain text is supported for creating new mail. As far as displaying mail, here HTML is also supported because it uses the Opera browser's engine to render HTML code.

    It is a pretty lightweight and solid client that has nothing but the "most-needed" features. It is by no means an outstanding client, but since it's incorporated into and shipped with the browser suite, some people might not even want another client because it could easily satisfy their needs. Another con is the lack of enhanced security functions.

    Summing these up, I'm giving it 6 out of 10 points. It does a great job though.
