I'm running TC64 Ver7.2 [never managed to complete installing Ver8],
which has got opera [is it ver 12, I forget? ].
These OLD vesions of opera, handled news/NNTP. I suspect there were
problems: that's why later versions dropped mail & news?
Have any TC users managed mail or news via opera ?
== TIA

Hi labeas,
Why you can't install ver 8?
Yes, TC 8.x (x86_64) has Opera 12.12 in repo.
http://tinycorelinux.net/8.x/x86_64/tcz/opera-12.tcz.info

Opera 15 (Blink engine) don't have internal mail or newsgroups support,
because Opera 12.16 (Presto engine) was the last version based on Presto engine.
User interface of Opera 15 (Blink engine) was rewritten completely from scratch.
The developers team responsible for Opera Presto, leave the Opera Software and created their own Vivaldi browser (Blink engine). 

I was using mail function in Opera many years ago, but I prefer web interface nowadays.

Thanks neonix,
 I should not have mentioned Ver 8.
The real question was HOW2 get mail via old version of opera.
WebBased email is a disaster.See how the gmail-clowns have NOW
hacked-to-make-the-headers-scroll-down-with-the-entryListing:
INSTEAD of header-applicable-to-the-whole-screen *ALLWAYS*
accessible at the top; like 1990's software.
I'm hoping that old-opera can do pop & <imap is-it-called?>
 plus NNTP.
