I thought if you hovered your mouse over the greyed-out "Take Items" button it tells you to get to a terminal?

Agreed. There should be instructions IN the mail that say how to reclaim them. I always wondered why they put those mail terminals in game when I could read/send mail from anywhere. Now I know!
Aww, geez, can't they just, uhh, MAIL FORWARD the items to me and make the items reclaimable EVERYwhere? *Sigh* I still think it's silly you can't claim items from the MAIL you can read everywhere. I mean, don't they have mail forwarding or interstellar FedEx in the future? Sheesh. Why make the interface more complicated than it needs to be? Why not just have the same mail interface/behavior EVERYwhere? I mean, it seems to me that it also means that when there is a mail bug to fix they've have to code the fix in BOTH places in the game? Unless they use the same code functions & just disable part of it selectively?
they've never been account wide. To answer the OPs question, you can't retrieve attachments from the minimap inbox button, to retrieve those you have to go to a mail terminal at a starbase.
And it's still just as silly a design decision as it was on day 1 when they rolled it out...
Why can't we have a little interface consistency? Why do we need one mail station to behave DIFFERENTLY than another mail station? *Sigh* It's stupid little inconsistent design decisions that tend to annoy players (reality doesn't match expected functionality).
