    reading about the auction notices it says the account owner will receive in game mail. I wonder if everyone will be able to receive in game mail?

    Other games have it, it would be cool if UO added it.

    The "mail" they are talking about is probably the same system used to send notices about player's pet and resource vendors in New Magincia.

    Don't go getting your hopes up. :sad3:

    I know that what you are saying is right. It would just be nice to use the mail boxes for what they were intended. Then again it would probably just be UO junk mail I would be getting. lol

    Oh, I completely agree. I miss the mail system that we used to have years ago, as flawed and as privacy-destroying as it was. I also miss KR's friends list.

    I agree with you guys about these things, but if they could they would have a long time ago.

    I don't see many mailboxes for sale, and they're not craftable, so use is rather limited

    you can get them from cleanup points, one of the least expensive choices.

    I believe it is 1000 points. It was the first item I got for my house.

    Maybe that's next step.
    Right now we need a postman, we do have mailbox, sell and buy stall vendors and the new auction safe and we do have vendor search, even when it do not work for stall vendors and I guess it do not work for Auction Safe. And we have the trade system

    With a "Postman" we could:
    Send letters and items to an other char and set a price for the item they have to accept to get it.
    We could put a put a bid on the action safe without going to the box but via the search side or buy an item from a vendor without going there.
    Sure a postman need time to move from one place to an other, so it would take time to get the item. You may order it by "e-mail" but if you want to send or claim an item, it will first be at your mailbox next day.
    This way, it would still be faster to go to the vendor/player yourself

    there is a way to assign a button in the client to "open" / "mail" - when it used to work it opened a strange looking halfway done mail window that I don't think ever worked quite right
