- Tagging (labels) for better organization of messages, pre-defined and custom labels
- Mailing lists now integrated into the mail system rather than chat channels
- A notification manager, keeping NPC communications separate from those of your friends (and enemies)
- Sort by date rather than by sender
- An actual Sent box (I can't be the only one that hated not having this)
- From December 1st onward mail will be stored locally on your computer
There are also other UI improvements and a few new features on the way, including changes to the chat interface and the addition of Corp/Alliance bulletin boards. This is all discussed in greater detail in CCP Caedmon's dev blog
, but from the images found there, it seems EVEMail is going to have a much cleaner interface. It should also function as a proper mail client that will offer players much more than the simple messaging platform used in the game today. Post-Dominion
, the EVEMail system will have web access through the game's New Eden social network. Caedmon adds that this web access to in-game mail will be released in stages over the coming months.
Reaction from the players about these changes seems fairly positive so far
, and we think most players would agree that an overhaul of EVEMail was needed.
