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
Sorry for the late reply; minor family drama.

Funny how different people have different opinions of software. Before
settling on Opera Mail (Opera seems to have retired the M2 name), I tried
Thunderbird and was totally unimpressed. That was a while ago and it may
have improved since then, but then it was slow, unreliable, and had
serious sorting and display issues on my Linux box. But I'll cheerfully
concede it has lots of satisfied users.

I used Evolution for several years. It certainly worked better for me than
Thunderbird. But aspiring to be a drop-in replacement for Outlook, it
can't help but be an 800 pound gorilla. And over time it seemed to be
getting heavier and buggier. I eventually found myself spending as much
time wrestling with Evolution's bugs and quirks as I did reading and
writing messages. So I guess it finally did become a drop-in replacement
for Outlook.

I briefly tried Claws Mail back when it was named Sylpheed Claws, and I
liked it. Were I to dump Opera Mail that would be at the top of my list.
But despite the bad reputation it has, I like Opera Mail. For me it works
quickly and reliably, and never chokes on my 40+ IMAP boxes and I don't
know how many thousands of archived messages.
Of the 2 email clients, I prefer Thunderbird over Evolution, but this is a personal viewpoint. I have a suggestion: Can Thunderbird be set up to just send emails from LO while you continue to use Opera as your email client? You would have to set up Thunderbird an email client for incoming and outgoing mail, but you would not have to use it. Uncheck anything that applies to downloading email (check for new messages at startup, check for new messages every ___ minutes, and automatically download new messages). I have Seamonkey, Firefox, and Thunderbird installed. The latter is my email client, and Seamonkey has the things I mentioned unchecked. So it does not try to download any emails. I have set up Seamonkey as the email client for LO, and it works.
