The mail system on LOTJ is a helpful way to send and receive private messages
to a character or their mailbox, without them needing to be online at the time
of sending. By using a datapad to write a message disk, ensure that the name in
the 'to' field is spelled correctly, not broken by color tags, or that the
mailbox number is correct and preceded by the @ sign. For example:
datamem write 2 to Walldo
datamem write 2 to @12345
Once the disk is ejected, simply go to a mail terminal on any planet and hold
the disk in your hand. Entering mail post will send the message. While the mail
is left on the terminal, both of the people whose names are on the disk will be
able to see it, and subsequently remove it, from any mail terminal.
Note: If your name is absent from, spelled incorrectly or broken with color
tags in the 'from' field, you will not be able to see the message in your
mailbox after it is sent.
To see mail that is in your inbox, that has your name in the 'to' or 'from'
field, simply enter mail list while in a room with a mail terminal to see the
messages, who they are from, and their subject line. Entering mail read 1 will
show you the entirety of message 1, and so on.
You can delete mail instantly by entering mail remove.

Mailboxes are a supplement to the standard mail system, in that you are still
able to receive mail sent to your name regardless of if you have purchased a
mailbox or not. In order to purchase a mailbox, you must be standing in a room
with a mail terminal, and you can then only access that particular mailbox from
that same room. The command mailbox list shows the mailbox numbers that you
own, the planet they are on, and the number of messages in them.
Mailboxes cost 25,000 credits to purchase, and you may only a maximum of
3 mailboxes at any time.
