Unless I am totally ignorant of the functions in many other mail clients, you may be missing one of the greatest things about M2. M2 has some really cool and fast mail filtering functions in it. I am currently using M2 and would happily change to another mail client if it provides these types of functions, as M2 lacks a lot of other important mail features. So what are these functions? * Contacts: Clicks on a contact and see all the mails that you have received and sent to that person. Note: this is a relatively fast operation and spans all the mails in Opera M2. Of course, you can do this in other mail clients, just be ready to wait and hope that all you mail is organized in one folder/mail box. * Active threads: Is a nice feature that shows you the last few conversations(threads) you have. Click on a thread and see all the back and forth related to said thread. Honestly, I do not use this much, but my girlfriend does quite a bit. * Searches: Keeps an active and up to date view of your recent searches and the results you have made. I believe a few other mail clients now have this, but I am not sure as to the speed. * Attachments: Keeps and index of mails you have received with certain types of attachments in it. Such as Documents, Archives etc... This is really nice when you want to find that attached gz file a friend sent you and quickly. * And others. Ultimately, what is great about M2 is the many ways it lets you view your mail. My main gripes are that the text editor is horrible and the UI is not to my taste. I would recommend playing with it, just to see how nice the above functions are. If there are any current mail clients that support Japanese and do the above and work on Linux I would love to know!
