Until now, Opera Web Mail has been hosted by various external companies. The most recent hosting provider was IBM, after they acquired Outblaze, which hosted Opera Web Mail at the time.
The problem with external providers is that they don't necessarily have your service as the #1 priority, and there are limitations to what you can do with the service if you don't have full access to it.
Well, there is finally some good news for
Opera Web Mail will finally be fully run by Opera, which means that we will no longer be limited by external companies with different priorities.
The service will be separate from the fastmail.fm service, and will use your old Opera Web Mail username and password to log in.
Keep an eye on the Opera Web Mail site for more details once the migration to our servers is done. You should see a mail in your inbox with more information about the new service at that time as well.
Note that fastmail.fm and operamail.com are not going away. You will be able to keep your old e-mail addresses!
