The mail search tool in DurcTools is working again. To get it to know about all your current mails you will need to let it scan each page of your in and sent boxes - just load each page of them one after the other.

Note that if you want to search for all mails to or from an alliance you need to enclose the tag in [].

When searching you can only search for one word at a time. The words you can search for are:
  • The name of the sender
  • The tag of the senders alliance
  • Any single word appearing in the mail subject line.

Clicking on the subject field in the results will open that message.

When you have search results shown you can check the box on the left to select it and then delete it from the database (it doesn't delete it from the game server). If you then scan the page in the in-game mail system that has that message it will be re-entered into the database.

Any problems or comment please post in the DurcTools thread.

I did create a userscript based tool (part of DurcTools) that allowed you to:
  •  search your mail for messages from:
  • Specific player
  • Member of specific alliance
  • A word appearing in the subject.
  •  send a message to up to 5 recipients without having to retype the message.

Unfortunately it no longer works however I am still thinking about a method of being able to have a simple to implement /use folder system that would hopefully be easy enough for the Devs to implement rather than having to rely on an external tool like mine (you need to be able to run userscripts which certainly rules out most mobile users).

I'm doubtful if I'll be able to get the multi-send part working again (it involved some fairly tricky code that even back then I didn't fully understand) but I may be able to get the search part working again. It will however take some time.

+1 to the CC/BCC idea.
I think it would also be nice to be able to search you inbox, especially for people storing info it would be a big help
Another idea of mine would be having file folders, I.E. alliance folder, Friend folder, personal folder, and the ability to make your own folder.
Thanks!

Agreed! forwarding ten messages to four or five different people over and over again really gets old fast. 

Or maybe just allowing me to type in multiple recipients or CC and BCC lines.

Trash Mail

A place where deleted mails go to for maybe a day or so until they're deleted forever.

This is so that if someone accidentally deletes something, it can be recovered!

Can I add my support to the idea of being able to organise mails into folders. 

This would make it so much easier to access useful mails without having to search through pages of them! Smile

Wish List :

Search engine... by name and context  

Folders... where I can specifically drop in certain mail to organize how I LIKE 
that means being able to name my own folders.

Group mail, where I can specify members in a group and not have to forward, forward , forward.
(add a few more to that, we have a few council members)

These items would be greatly beneficial.

thanks
Venita

Or at least have a search function for mail titles or senders ...

I was just about to post a thread about an archive function and then found this and it's already on the list... great.

I guess that's what "archive" means?!
