This will free up the space on cryptic servers they seem to think they need and with a server stored checksum it should ensure the client-side stored message file doesn't get tampered with. On opening the mail from the ingame mail terminal the file is decompressed on the client computer provided the checksums match.

So what if it takes a couple of minutes to decompress a large stored file on the clients computer, the solution would be to decrease the size of the file, and totally in the control of the player.
That wouldn't work....
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

I didn't say it was a perfect idea as portability of messages would be lost, but anything ATM would be an improvement. The mail system is so hosed right now I'm afraid to even open it up or post anything on the exchange because stuff might get lost.

Just make unlimited mail a benefit of LTS, that'd work for me.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

I agree. I was considering getting a LTS, but then this nerf happened.

But now, i may suspend my Gold membership and just upgrade the specific options I need and not fill as invested to the game and lack of development process and outages.

Thanks

Since they didn't qualify it with an exclusion, unlimited included unlimited attachments.

If we take the twitter announcement as final, the 100 mail attachment limit is here to stay. We then need to find solutions to the storage issue many of us have. I would prefer the old limit was still in place, but if that is out, the 3 part solution I posted above would help meet the players storage needs while offering perfect world additional revenue. I hesitate to call it a win-win as players are forced to pay for something that was given, but at least it motivates the change on the developers end.

The only way to survive in STO, TRADE!!!!
Even now that is not possible!!!
It is a shame that it has come to this, shame for all the other players, that try to survive in the EC-world!!!
Because this is the only way to make some EC's

In other words, The crisis is gonna happen in STO allso!!!

I have a mailbox that does'nt DELETE the old ones, try to fix that, for a change!!!!
