We would like to post some information about the new Ryzom Web MailBox.
The mail app was rewritten from scratch and is now very powerful and useful. The most important change is that the mail is now accessible from in game (SHIFT+W) but also when you are not in the game with your browser on this url.
You are at work and want check your Atys mail? That’s now possible.
In the next patch, new mail notifications will be back! When you’ll receive new mail, an icon in the compass will appear telling you how many unread mail you have.
Each time you sent a mail, the recipient will be added to your mail contact list so next time you don’t have to type their name, just go on the contact list and click on their name to compose a new message for them. You can also add a private comment about anybody in the contact list, very useful to remember all your friends/enemies.
The mailbox also supports multiple recipients. In the contact list, just tick the people you want to send the mail to and click on “new message” and they’ll all receive your mail. You can also just type the names in the ‘To:’ field separated by a comma.
Mail queueing; When you send a mail, it goes in a queue until the recipient opens their mailbox and reads it. Until then, you can delete the mail and this way you will know if the recipient has read the mail or not, which can be very useful!
You want to send a mail a friend that is on another server? Not a problem, just append the shard name and a dot before his name, for example, if you are an Arispotle player and want to send a mail to an Aniro player called test, just type aniro.test in the ‘To:’ field.
The old mailbox is now deprecated, and will be removed and replaced with this new mailbox in the next patch (so SHIFT+M will open the new mailbox).
