Let’s talk a little about Opera Mail. This email client gained popularity alongside its web browser counterpart. As an integral part of the browser, Opera Mail offered impressive performance and a wide range of messaging features that many traditional mail clients lacked. Although Opera Mail is still available for download today, it has been discontinued. This poses a challenge for the countless users who still rely on it and have accumulated gigabytes of emails stored in Opera’s native *.mbs format. But as they say, the king is dead, long live the king. It’s time to look for alternative solutions, and many users have turned to Microsoft Outlook. But how to export from Opera Mail to Outlook when the MBS (formerly M2) format used by Opera Mail is not supported by Outlook, regardless of whether it is version 2003, 2010, 2016, or 2019.
Opera Mail to Outlook Transfer, a simple and fast application that automatically transfers email messages from Opera Mail directly to Outlook or to a PST file.
Why use a third party tool? As mentioned above, Outlook does not support the MBS format, so you have to manually export from Opera Mail and hope for a flawless import into Outlook. Judging by the number of Google searches on “how to migrate from Opera Mail to Outlook”, the manual transfer is not as easy as it might first appear. Another concern is the potential for encoding mismatches that often occur when converting mailboxes that contain non-English emails. To ensure the security and integrity of your information, it is highly recommended that you migrate using the Opera Mail to Outlook converter. The process is simple. Here’s how it works.

Equipped with advanced analytical algorithms and multi-threaded processing, our tool guarantees a fast and accurate conversion process that is 99% automated. The only manual task required is to select the folder where the MBS files are stored.

Unlike many utilities that can be overly technical, Opera Mail to Outlook Transfer stands out for its user-friendly design. We have designed the program to be easy to use, even for those who have never dealt with email migration before. Our sleek interface requires minimal configuration, as all necessary settings are either automatically detected or set by default. Just run the program and enjoy the results. It’s that simple.
- Effortless import and export
Our tool gives you the flexibility to export Opera email to Outlook or create a new PST file to store the messages and folders. You can also import emails from Opera into any existing Outlook folder or automatically split the resulting PST file into smaller, pre-defined chunks for easier transfer.
- Efficiently handle encodings, attachments and folder structure
Over time, mailboxes can become cluttered with different encodings, gigabytes of attachments, embedded images and complex folder structures. Opera Mail to Outlook Transfer handles all these challenges effortlessly. While other migration solutions require manual control over these aspects, our tool ensures maximum accuracy when transferring your data to PST.
- Fixes damage
In some cases, mailboxes can be damaged and cannot be read or opened properly, making the migration process even more difficult. But with Opera Mail to Outlook Transfer, you can put your worries aside. Our software is able to automatically handle the majority of corrupt or damaged MBS files, ensuring a smooth migration experience.
Here is how Opera Mail to Outlook Transfer can help you
Opera Mail Transfer has an exceptional level of efficiency that makes migrating data from MBS to PST a breeze. Think about it: the typical manual migration process involves exporting a folder from Opera and then importing the resulting file into Outlook. This repetitive process has to be done for each and every folder, which is far from time efficient.
In addition, Opera Mail offers a feature called “Views”, which allows users to create customized sections within the mail database. This can simplify the manual export process by creating a view that contains all messages, which can then be exported. However, this approach results in a single file containing hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of messages without any organization. Managing such an “all-in-one” file is undoubtedly a challenge.
Fortunately, Opera Mail to Outlook Transfer improves the situation considerably.
Instead of exporting manually, you can simply tell the program to perform the migration for you. This will save you a considerable amount of time that you can spend on your core tasks. Alternatively, you can relax in your chair while the program does all the work.
Avoid errors and mistakes
“Manual” means you do this. And we are all prone to errors, so sometimes you may and up with a non-working or incorrect mailbox data. With accurate automatic conversion the result is always perfect. Don’t worry about such technical details as encodings, attachments, various version-dependent tiny changes in mailbox format and so on. The program takes all of these into account and performs flawless exporting.
Transfer mailboxes of any size (or version)
Opera Mail to Outlook Transfer supports conversion of huge oversized mailboxes (> 4 GB) and can read and convert Opera to PST regardless of the version. Surely, this is often pivotal option, because of the large size of older mailboxes with tons of messages in them. Save this feature you would have to split the mailbox somehow and export it chunk by chunk. With this program, however, you process the whole database in just one round. Easily export from Opera Mail to Outlook 2010, 2013 – 2019.
Preserve folder structure
After the conversion you get the same folder structure you had in Opera Mail. No need to adjust or rearrange anything. Just continue your work in Outlook now. That’s pretty neat. Compare that with manual migration and feel the difference.
