Likeiness.  Added.

You don't need to support existing things on the "love list" KP - new items are welcome, but the rest is just post count Tongue

Must have been late for me to have been so terse.  What I meant was - while you're doing those first two things (the ones I quoted) make sure to remember to add a delete button too.

Ah, I'm just poking you for fun, KP - you're still one of my fave bughunters/petitioners!

Select unread--useful for reading important messages then mass-deleting the spam we don't even need to open.

Archive with tagging--useful for record keeping, i.e. email shows what resources player B lent me, tagged as 'debt'.  Also allows me to clear out my inbox of old information without losing it outright.

Trash can:  I've already noticed that "deleted" messages still exist in the database, and can still be reached by URL if you remember the MsgID.  Given that, we might as well have a chance to correct accidental deletions or read deleted email if it's really important.  I like the idea of email that can't be truly deleted either.  Incorruptible paper trails can help keep people honest.

I hope that when you get around to linkifying all the various labels (player/town/alliance names, etc) that you do it universally...meaning in the bodies of system messages and anywhere that it is lacking outside the emails system as well (such as trade summary windows).

One more: add a "Human messages only" category. 

There are several links to exclude messages not of a particular type from the system, but none to exclude all system messages themselves.  These various methods of filtering down to a particular type of system message are comparatively useless when you have to keep those messages deleted in order to find non-system messages anyway.

Make hyperlinks automatically clickable in the mail.

Hey,

Could you add auto-links to the character profile and/or rankings to the in-game mail system? So that if someone sends me a message, or if I send a scout mission to them and the system gives me an automated report on who I scouted/what's there, I can click on them and show ranking/more easily find their city. Or at the very least include the city coords in scout/military reports.

It would be really great if we could archive some messages. This way they are not in the general "inbox." It would make tracking conversations, targets, etc. much easier.
