I am sure putting delete at the bottom was to avoid accidental deletes, but for those storing info in their inbox it can be a pain...I would like to see it at the top along with a "mark as read" button...
 
Just some thoughts...

Next and Previous links would also rock.

Also, it would be sexy to have the location listings in emails be hotlinks to a map view for that location.

"Your caravan just got bitch slapped at a resource site on 55|55. Click there to see the wreckage."

Also, it would be nice if it said what the resource was.

I'm rambling here, sorry.

Not rambling, either of you, it's good stuff.

On the dev list is a mention of "Email fixes", but let's call this thread the 'official' list of everything we want in the mail system.

Including your stuff above and below, I want:

  • Delete buttons at top as well as bottom
  • Next and Previous links on individual emails
  • Pagination
  • More links from emails to things ingame :
  • player name --> drop down with options "send message, view profile"
  • alliance name/ticker --> alliance profile
  • town names --> drop down as on the world map, plus add "center map on"
  • X|Y locations --> "center map on"
  • Archive function (top and bottom)
  • Ability to delete Sent Items
  • Search Function by player (and maybe by content as well)
  • Mail Entire Alliance button (for players with sufficient Alliance Permissions)
  • Sorting function (by date, by name, by topic etc]
  • "Mark as Read", "Mark as Unread" options
Anyone else got any more?  Stick 'em down here, as we want to do this in one swell foop, if at all possible.

I think i said this before.
But a seperate alliance inbox with mail that stays in that box till someone with sufficient rights delete it.
Like in EvE. (forum information / voice communication / irc channels / passwords / etc etc)
So someone new to the Alliance will read it.
So i dont have to send the info seperately to each new member.

Hope you understand what i am trying to say :).

I do, completely, but this would be unnecessary with an ingame alliance forum for each alliance, where the alliance can create a Folder called "New Players Must Read" and put everything in there instead.

GM Stormcrow - what are you doing? Are you trying to short cut the dev priority list by insisiting its player demands?

Methinks you need a less conspicuous user icon for this... ;-P

As long as we're making a wish list, I'd like "mark as read" and "mark as unread" buttons.  That way when I have 10 messages about caravan movements, I can just clean them up without hitting the server 20 times (10 list views, 10 message views).
