Checked - and sorry, but no. I know that I had mail in there dating back to 2010, not sure if there were any that far back with attachments, but the mail in the Tribble copy only shows mail dating back a month before I copied the character over, through the time the copy was made, I believe.

I have mail dated 3/13-4/14/2013. All of the mail attachments are exchange expired mails (none of what would have been in the mail at the time I made the copy). All of those have the duplicate, item not attached, mails as well.

I don't know when the mail systems were separated, but I do know I used to see the mails from Holodeck while on Tribble. I was always afraid to take anything out in Tribble (although I did try to send myself something from Tribble to Holodeck, which resulted in a mail with no item attached. Had to try it, but that was at least 2 years ago. lol)

My inventory does not look touched. There is no discrepancy between what I have in there.

The only thing I know for certain is that I did not send items to myself while on Tribble, so if those were the only ones that can verify if it worked, I am unable to verify. Sorry I don't have any other feedback or help I can give. I would really really like to know if this is going to work.

One question - what will the "from" address be, if the items are to be mailed to us? And should we expect to see dates from the time the items were actually in the mail, or will this be a deluge of mails from sorry@cryptic dated 7/11/2013? lol

I saw what Bran posted, but my mail on Tribble contains returned items that didn't sell on the exchange on Holodeck (that were in my mail when I copied the character over). Even if it only copied over exchange returned items, I'm *fairly* certain I had at least a few datachips returned from the exchange that were earlier dates than what I have in the mail now.

I have never mailed myself items on Tribble, so can't really verify if it did anything for that portion.

So the only way to get items back on Tribble that were lost in the mail, you had to have had them in your mail on Tribble. You'll have to wait until the fix goes live to see if you get them returned on Holodeck.
Some time after posting this I realized I was an idiot........I mean........I remembered that during LoR beta testing I was getting exchange mail on Tribble server notifying me that something on Holodeck was sold and I could delete the messages. I felt like I misinformed people. I didn't edit my post because there were already a lot of posts afterwards when I remembered and figured nobody would see it.

But then I saw this post today.......

I use to be with it. But I don't remember what "it" was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me.

Fairly sure they put that in because of Neverwinter. All the mail notices from STO were showing up there and all the mail from there were showing up in STO. I still have a mail in my STO box saying that I sold an item on the Auciton House for x Astral Diamonds.

Well the items lost in the mail were returned. What a mess.

They were returned in mailed from "Lost and Found" with a subject of the first item in the mail followed by (With x more). The contents of the mail "Attached items that were mailed and then lost have been returned."

All of the sorting and descriptions are lost. I had titled the mails based on content followed by the body of the mail with further descriptions. For Boffs the body had a list of all the powers and traits of the boffs contained in the mail. All of that is gone.

Looks like i get to spend the next several weeks trying to figure out what all of the mails contain and then sort them away again. Guess I get to make some mule accounts just so I can mail them somewhere while dealing with them. I also lost all of the fleet communication and discussions I have had with various people.

I appreciate having the items returned but what a mess.
