notes, personal bar and Speed Dial in Opera Link.

important messages.

menu (or click the message subject header), then select either Follow Thread or 
Ignore Thread.
    * Also, you can click the names in the From or To headers to enable the

messages from that thread. This is useful for those that employ flat view.

little bandwidth as possible.

    * For IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol): Opera will only synchronise 
new messages and it will not fetch message attachments unless requested
    * For POP (Post Office Protocol): Opera will not fetch more than the first 
100 lines of a message unless requested

Opera Scroll Marker

The new Opera Scroll Marker makes it easier to continue reading when you scroll 
through a Web page. At the end of the page it will indicate the previous 
position of the bottom of the screen so you can easily see where to continue 

Enable Opera Scroll Marker in the Preferences dialog box. Navigate to Tools > 
Preferences > Advanced > Browsing > Show scroll marker (check box).

    * Check the box to enable Opera Scroll Marker
    * Leave the box unchecked (default) to keep it disabled

Using the opera:config Preferences Editor 
opera:config#UserPrefs|EnableScrollMarker, you can also set Opera Scroll Marker 
to show every time you scroll less than a full page down or up. The options in 
the drop-down menu are:

    * 0 ¡½ off
    * 1 ¡½ show when reaching the bottom or top of the page
    * 2 ¡½ always show when scrolling
