quick mail question
 
I sent my other character some beam arrays via the mail...
im fairly certain i did @Thuel, and sent the items. However its been 2 days
now and they are not in the mail..

do different items take longer to mail or should it be instant like the other items
i have sent to myself.

also i i didnt mail the stuff to someone else as i didnt put "firstname"@"secondname" ...just @Thuel

anyway any help would be great

ummm... if you ddnt add the character name and just did your account name.... you wont be seeing those items for a while, i believe if the mails not opened for a month or something they are auto-returned to sender.


you have to do Charactername@accountname to properly send mail, even between chars.

kinda stupid cause the tooltip that pops up when mailing says to
just do @thuel for mailing to yourself

anyway thanks for the help..

If you sent the mail to yourself (with the correct spelling) it should have arrived within a few seconds... unless...

Are you a 'Silver' Player? The F2P Matrix says 'Silver' Accounts can only send messages to 'Friends'... it could be that you can't be a friend to yourself... See if you can send yourself mail without attachments, and see if it arrives...

I'm a ftp player at present, i have mailed myself items before without issue.

i guess its possible i accidentally spelled my name wrong on that one time.

In future, the safest way to make sure is to send yourself an email ( to @Thuel in this case ) without anything attached. Then when it arrives hit "Reply" and attach the item.

Ummm... I have to disagree here... I never ad character name, only the @handle, to item submissions... Never had any issues like the one the OP describes... And I did it as early as 4 days ago, so this is NOT the case.
