Thats a tricky one. I don't exactly have a solution to the opera problem
but it might be best to associate the email client (Thunderbird maybe?)
as the default. From the best of my knowledge the opera browser can not
become associated with the *.eml format which Thunderbird & Evolution
use? -- As an aside what is the reason your using the M2 Client? from my
own experience it has loads of issues and is not as half as good as
thunderbird or evolution for that matter

I almost feel like I am talking through a hole in my head.

I use LibreOffice 3.4.5, and Opera 12.02 as a mail client, running Linux
Debian Edition 201204. LibreOffice has a "send document as email"
Searching the web, I see it works fine with some other mail clients
(Thunderbird, etc.) on Linux. But when I try it, I get the error message:

"LibreOffice was unable to find a working e-mail configuration. Please
this document locally instead and attach it from within your e-mail

The relevant configuration appears to be found at Tools - Options -
- Email. I've tried "opera", "/usr/bin/opera", and  "/usr/bin/opera
'openComposer(new-window)'" (all without the double quotes). All of the
above work from the terminal, and the latter (taken from Opera's
documentation) opens a new message composition window, but none make
LibreOffice's error go away.

Searching the web, this list, and LibreOffice's Get Help references turns
nothing relevant.

I'm out of ideas. Does anyone know how to make LibreOffice and Opera Mail
play together?
A feature I should greatly like to see in LibreOffice is one allowing a
user to choose a webmail service, e g, Gmail, as the default, rather than
an email client like Thunderbird or Evolution. This is easily done on, say,
Ubuntu, by installing the Gnome Gmail package ; it would be wonderful if
one of the LibreOffice developers could modify this package or create a
different one which would resolve this problem for LibreOffice users....


In order to use a webmail service with LO, it would have to create its own email client that would connect to the webmail service. Considering the number of email clients already available that will do this, this seems to be redundant to me. I use Thunderbird as my email client to connect to a webmail service, and LO works well with it. Unfortunately, I have no experience with opera as an email client, so I can not comment about the OP's problem.
