Downloaded Opera, looks pretty good. I have three fish in my simquarium. Does it have similar add ins as firefox such as flashblocker?

I like that.dimspace said:one more magic tip and im done... custom searches...
if there is somewhere you go regularly and search, lets say for instance imdb.. go to imdb and in the search box right click and create search.. call the search movie or something...
now, in the address bar instead of typing www etc, just type movie, a space and your search term.. hit enter, and hey presto, imdb search.. work with everything.. we have g, i (google and image), wiki, movie and a whole host of others..
there are loads, i use the twitter one regularly, google translate, radio player, currency converter...El Imbatido said:I am now officially an Opera convert, thanks to Dim. It is just so much faster and more customizable than anything else. I also love the mouse shortcuts, all my mail is together from multiple email addresses - all i have to do is press the mail panel. The address bar shotcuts are also awesome. Like typing: g <insert search here> will search google, e <insert search> is ebay. w is wikipedia, y is yahoo etc. Instead of actually going to the website and entering it manually.
I also have the speed dial up as my homepage instead of a single homepage as i couldn't work out if it is possible to have multiple homepages. And the widgets are also awesome. I have a proxy one, google translator, chuck norris facts and the panic button one. Any other good ones??
Also what options do you guys want for a poll?
not as simple as just putting in the server mail.emery, etc, and the usernames in then yet..Cobber said:+1 for Opera. I have been messing around with it for the past hour after reading some of Dim's posts, and I really like it. Now... if I can just get Emory's email to work with it I will be set. Unfortunately, Emory's IT is a joke. I can see how the conversation is going to go already.
me: "I need help setting up an Emory email in Opera"
IT: "Umm... ok, I am not familiar with Opera. Are you using a PC or Mac"
me: "I am using Linux"
IT: "What's Linux?"
Thanks Dim... yea I had all the settings correct, it just won't allow authentication. Since it can connect, the servers/ports should be OK, correct? It just won't authenticate my password, even though it works fine in webmail. I am going to call tech support on Monday, so I'll let you know what happens.dimspace said:n

found the imap settings here> http://www.sph.emory.edu/computing/email/OEInitial.htm
tools> mail and chat accounts
incoming server: imap2.sph.emory.edu
username and passwords in the boxes...
once done, go back into tools> mail and edit the account
on the servers tab, check the authentification box for both in and out
authorisation method as auto
outgoing port: 465
you can also on the incoming tab decide if you want it to download the full message, or just the headers, if you only download the headers it downloads the email when you click on it to read it (so email is not available when you are offline) or you can make mail available when offline..
there is also the low bandwidth mode option available there..
might be completely useless but that just what google came up with..
weird glitch with imap settings.. once youve connected for the first time and sent a message go back into edit the account, go onto outgoing, and change teh "sent messages folder" to the relevant folder. if not all messages you send also appear in your inbox.. :/
