Long time ago i send a friend invite to the exchange (still pending), so i think you can also ignore it (you will lose your unsold items i think)

# 22 More mail options request?
07-23-2013, 07:57 AM
Hey all.

I dunno if its just me but i cba to delete a mail as soon as i get it and it piles up. So of course when you get a long list of "item sold" and it clogs up your mail listing you kinda get annoyed that you cant select multiple mails and then do a one key deletion like you would in say thunderbird..

So i would like to ask for more mail sorting and deleting options such as mass delete and multiple select for deletion options.

Anyone with me here? As deleting one by one mails of item sold, is a pain in the bum and takes like 20 mins to do a long list of em.

Wow, i didn know that this thread still exists.

I think there shouldn't be a "delete all" - Button but a "Delete all empty Mail" - Button.

So items that are being send back from the exchange wouldn't be deleted, but everything else would be cleared.

Why stop at the mail terminal.

1) Inventory
- Add a right-click option to all items in inventory (maybe even bank) to "keep in inventory"
- Give me a discard/sell all option.

Much less time spend at vendors, and much smoother flying when in loot intensive missions. or low on inventory space.

Better for your fps too. and retrieval of accidental deletions work like it does now via "retireve"tab

2) Doffs/rep/base
Same principle s.a. While doff, boff, and pet storage needs an overhaul period. The same idea could work here too.

- let me tag certain doffs as not for donation
- give me a fill all option (this includes commodities, doffs, marks, DIl, etc)

Wow, people keep coming up with good ideas I just couldn't keep up or suggest anything!

So, I was here because I'm having a bad time trying to delete Exchange spams. I'm a silver player, I played this game since the first day it went f2p, My first exchange mail was on February 19th, 2012. Since that day, I've been bulk selling items, 10-20 items at once for all these times, assuming I ran to exchange 5 times a day & I put 10 items at a time, I must have almost 28k mails by now & about 99% of them came from exchange about my items being sold ,and since Cryptic got a smart idea to make each mail has the cap down to 300, so it'll be great if there's something to make deleting mails a lot easier, Delete all is nice, but I want to keep that 1% just in case I slipped on the expired exchange mails.

Hi all,
I've been struggling with this problem for years now, of not being able to delete multiple emails at once, and doing the "click-enter-enter" system to get rid of them. I haven't been able to email doffs between my guys because of a jammed inbox (the doffs get hidden because the system prioritizes Exchange emails for some awesome reason). I lost a fleet ship module in my Mail, about a year ago. I frequently load up my three characters' Exchanges with 40 things for sale each, so there are thousands of emails in my inbox.

I thought, what if there was a program that automated keystrokes and mouse strokes? There is. It's called AutoMe. It's free. I think it's chinese. You program it with a sequence of three steps: where on the screen you want your cursor to click, followed by two "enters." Then assign a hotkey to start and stop (I used F9 and F11). When you're in STO, hit the F9 to "go" (your mouse click coordinates have to be lined up properly) and the program will start deleting all your mails really fast. You have to watch it because if you're like me, your lost items will still be somewhere in there and you don't want them deleted. It's not so fast you can't stop the deleting madness in time. I don't think I lost anything. It took me about 5 minutes to delete many, many emails. Did it for all my guys. It's quite easy to set up and fascinating to see your inbox empty out.

Thanks all,
