I'm seeing a large increase in Spam being rejected by my own email server. This is a global thing, rather than an FM thing, it seems.

I would love to understand why your email is so critical that this is an issue.

If it is so critical, can I suggest that $40 isn't enough to spend on your email?

Well, it's working, in an unfinished state, and with no obvious development. And, we all remember what happened to the other interface that was left in that state.

I think you'll find it's always been 1 hour for Enhanced users.

Also, you can manually initiate a retrieval, but only from the defunct interface.

Does anyone use FM's jabber feature?

Serious question. It doesn't appear to be a "core feature" since you have to drill fairly low down to find any mention of it on FM's website.

After all, FM...

Not at all. The email client in the browser is generic.

Besides, would opera really want to limit sign- ups to those diminishing opera browser users?

The Opera/Chromium news is fairly insignificant news as far as market share is concerned.

What concerns me most of all as a FM user is that there is no mention whatsoever on opera.com nor on...

I guess you missed the double negative:



Putting it positively, "I would be happy it Opera sold FM", but that may be putting it too strongly.

I'm not sure if Opera cares much at all about FM.

Perhaps another indication that all is not well with FM/Opera's email service.

My point is that the "Opera Mail" email service, that is based on FM's infrastructure, appears to be totally absent from Opera's two main consumer webpages. Sure,...

As I've said before, Facebook would have no interest in a (relatively) small email service. Why would they?

Which perhaps explains why I cannot find any reference whatsoever to an email service at...

There is a bandwidth limit that applies daily and hourly.

Good luck trying to avoid hitting it, since there's no way of knowing how close you are to it.

Try again later? It looks as though it's over a 5 minute period that it tests.

More seriously, this sounds as though it could be used as a denial of service attack againt someones account.

Well, for starters, Facebook would be buying Opera for "Opera Mobile", not for a desktop web browser with less than <2% reach, nor for a email messaging solution.

This is just my gut feeling, but I...

This may be useful in cases of criminal activity, but FM will hand over those keys to three-letter agencies quicker than you can say "internet privacy is a myth".
