The Mailbox

Mailboxes are used to send or check mail and to send or receive items.

Sending Mail

Sending Messages

  • To send a message click on any mailbox, then on the "Send Mail" button and the "Send Mail" window will open. Enter a recipient's name, click on the Confirm button to check that the name exists on that server, enter the message and click on the "Send Mail" button (the one in the "Send Mail" window and not the Mailbox window).
  • Sent messages are stored in the sender's outbox and remain there until the recipient opens the message.
  • A message sent via mail has a maximum of 150 character, however, longer messages can be broken up over a number of postings.
  • There is a delay in the time it takes for a message to be sent and when it's received in the recipient's inbox. This can vary from 10 seconds to 10 minutes depending on the locations of the mailboxes used by the sender and recipient.
  • You cannot send mail to other players on another server.
  • You cannot send mail to another character on the same account. This includes the free Elf and Giant assistant characters.

Sending Items

  • To send an item, hover your mouse near the bottom of the screen while "talking" to the mailbox. Click inventory. Then, drag-drop the item from your inventory to the square in the mailbox window, just like a bank.
  • Only tradable items may be sent via mail (including Gold and Checks). A fee is charged which depends on the value of the item sent. The fee charged for mailing items works exactly the same as the fee charged for depositing items in a Bank.
  • Items will remain in the mail for 30 days if the recipient does not remove them. After 30 days they will be returned to the sender's inbox.
  • A payment can be requested for an item sent via mail to other players by ticking the "Request $" and inputting the amount of gold desired for the item. The maximum amount able to be requested is 10 million gold.
  • You must add an item in the mail in order to request gold. There is also a transaction fee for the bank plus the request fee for the recipient.

Receiving Mail

Receiving Messages

  • Messages can be checked by clicking on any mailbox and then clicking on any received messages in the inbox. The inbox is displayed by default when clicking on a mailbox.

Receiving Items

  • There are no fees for the receiver, unless the mail comes with an item requesting a payment in gold (i.e., a priced item).
  • The receiver, when accepting a priced item from the mailbox, will need to have enough gold to pay for the item and the fees.
  • When paying with gold on-hand, the total fees rate is 5% of the requested gold (i.e., the mailing fee is only charged).
  • When paying with gold in the bank, the total fees rate is 10% of the requested gold (i.e., the mailing fee and bank transaction fees are charged).
  • After the item has been accepted, the gold will be sent to the seller, which they can directly deposit into their bank account without any fees being charged.
  • Note: Checks are not accepted as a method of payment for mailed items.

Trivia

  • Unlike Party Boards nor House Shop Ad Boards, Mailboxes are technically NPCs, as they are selectable by holding Ctrl key. They also have Combat Power and Inventory, although not visible to players.
  • Although the Inbox and Outbox are limited to only 30 items, it is possible to exceed the limit (in the Inbox only) by sending items to another player and having them return it. However, be aware that other players will not be able to directly send items to the inbox after it exceeds 30/30 items. In this manner, the inbox can be used as a low cost but temporary storage (to a max. of 59/30) for cheap items.
