Mail SystemHelios • Classic
In Gracia Plus update a new mail system was introduced. It replaced the old system of transferring items and added an option to send mail to the players which are offline.
Types of mail
There are 2 types of mail:
- Regular mail – sending a mail with an attachment or without it. The recipient just need to click the message icon (it appears in the lower left corner of the screen, under the chat window, when you have mail). Such messages are paid by the sender.
- Payment request – collect on delivery mail. For such mail the sender indicates the price of the item/items sent, and the recipient can either pay the indicated price to get the items, or refuse.
- "Received Mail" tab. The mail received by your character.
- "Sent Mail" tab. Mail sent to other characters. The interface duplicates the "Received Mail" tab
- "Select all" checkbox. Selects all the mail on the page. The unread mail will not be selected.
- Mail sorting fields. By default, the newest message is displayed first in the list, but they can also be sorted by fields:
- Type If there’s an attachment in the message, you’ll be a clip icon there; if it’s a payment request message, there’ll be a lock icon.
- Sender/Recipient Sender/Recipient’s name depending on the tab.
- Title Subject of the message.
- Validity Regular mail is kept for 15 days. Payment request mail is kept for 12 hours.
- List of messages.
- "Delete" button. Select a message to delete. A message with an attachment cannot be deleted.
- Switching between your mail list pages.
- "Send" button. Click to make a new message.
To open a mailbox, use a /mailbox command or the "Mailbox" option in the main menu (Alt+X). Press "Send" button. You can attach transferrable items to the message, no more than 8 slots in total (for example, 50 pcs of the same resource need 1 slot, and same parts of a armor, like gloves, need a separate slot for each one). The price varies depending on the weight of the items attached. You can send and receive mail in non-battle state only. The interval between sending and receiving mail is 30 seconds, so, if you’ve changed your mind and don’t want to send a message, you can remove it via "Sent Mail" tab of the mail interface.
- Mail body:
- To. Recipient character’s name.
- Mail type. Regular mail or Payment request
- Title. Subject of the message
- Message. Text of the message.
- Attached items. In the lower part your inventory items are displayed – the ones you can send by mail. Drag them into the attachment slots (8 max.). While dragging, you'll be prompted to indicate the amount of the items to send. In the middle you’ll see the weight of the mail and its price (basic price: 100 adena; price of a mail with attachments: 1,000 adena for each slot).
- Sum received in payment request. This field is available if your message type is "Payment request". Press the arrow button and indicate the price of your mail.
When you receive mail, in the right down corner the envelope icon appears, click it to open the message. In the attachment weight is higher than character’s weight limit, it’s impossible to get the attachments. If mail price is higher than your character’s available funds, it’s impossible to open the message. If your character has enough adena to pay, then adena will be sent to the sender when you open the message.
