Yes, it is a pain, which is exactly why Butler moves it.

It would be helpful if a single message could be sent to multiple players at one time. Not to an entire alliance, mind you, but having the option to send something to more than just a single player at a time would be helpful.

Organization is the biggest headache for the current mail system. I would suggest that the many, many system messages we receive be directed exclusively into their own folder and not be intermixed with "general" mail from other players. This would increase the usefulness of the "select all" button when trying to eliminate groups of system messages. With the messages mixed as they are, it is extremely rare that one can actually use the "select all" feature due to the intermixing of messages that one wants to keep.

Enlarging the checkboxes in the mailbox, or making them sensitive to proximity clicks, would reduce the need for such tedious precision when clicking, which slows down the process of working with multiple messages.

When opening and reading a message on any page other than page 1, the mailbox resets you back to page 1 when you close the message. It would be convenient to be able to remain in the page you are working in instead of being booted back to page 1 after every closure.

System messages concerning resource harvesting could include the city of origin in the subject line. If this issue were addressed, I would suggest rephrasing the subject line so as to present the information with more efficiency rather than having it just grow longer. Example: current message reads: Caravans begin gathering at square -589|492. To amend this, I would suggest: Clarion caravans begin gathering @ [-589|492]. (Clarion is the name of one of my towns.)

The ability to delete Sent Messages has already been mentioned, but I would emphasize the importance of that. Being able to archive or move messages into a "save" folder would be very helpful.

I'd hate that, because I often use the existing option to sort all trade mails by subject, and then delete blocks of "replaced", "disappointed", "returning", etc., keeping only fresh "begin gathering" mails for inspection (= will my van get the rest, or should I send another van to this spot => after that decision the "begin gathering" mail can be deleted by the ridiculous exit mail + flag it + scroll down + delete procedure, one of my two pet peeves in Illy.)

Agree +1  +1  +1   Clap

This would reduce the time I spend sending information to people and increase the time I spend playing.

It would be really great if we could upload pictures into our PMs from our computers or copy and paste pictures in. Right now you can only upload them from URLs but it would be great if we could upload screenshots which would help in resolving some disputes without people having to reveal their email addresses.

Amen...

Multiple recipients (CC), groups (like alliance leadership only), ability to create at least 1 of our own folders in the mail system, etc. -> these are all features I think everyone wants to see. In general, the alliance and email interfaces are nearly a nightmare if you are actively trying to lead an alliance, and the mail is a general nuisance for just about everyone.

The social tools are so very important in a MMO like this one. While everyone enjoys new features, I would, for one, like to see chat, email, and alliance interface all upgraded significantly based on USER feedback (that means us, the players). I am not much of a forum chatter, but I do read it regularly. I see so many great, and in some cases, just good common sense ideas on the forums. I would think fixing the social tools like mail would be fairly straight forward compared to major game updates.
Nuff said ...
