So they reencode (to 8bit presumably) without changing headers. Too bad.
Still, Freepops should work around that.

Well, they charge for IMAP usually - unless they recently changed their
subscription models. Its POP3 service has served me for years and is rather
"not getting in the way", and spam filtering is reasonably configurable.

To me it appears Opera falls short on several web sites that use
cross-domain cookies, for instance GMX's FreeSMS service (depends on
subscription model), and doesn't work with their "Beta 3" AJAX stuff, but
should work with the "plain old" web interface.
