About MailTo Next

My wife loved MailTo's ability to right click on items... Now that is more-or-less gone, she whined me into coming up with alternatives.

This version adds a new window when you open mailbox, trade, auction house, that function as a condensed version of your inventory.


Mailto has no way of determining the recipient of a mail is your alt or not, unless you have checked mail with that character (thus Mailto has their inbox record) at the time of sending mail.


MailTo Next can filter items in inventory to display. for filter types, refer to item types (NOT sub-types) here


   	when mailbox is open,
   		left click in the mailable item to attach it to mail.
   		right click in the mailable item to mail it to current recipient
   	when trade is open,
   		left click in the tradable item to add it to trade.
   		right click in the tradable item to accept trade.
   	when auction house is open,
   		left click in the auctionable item to enter the name into auction search
   		right click in the auctionable item to create auction.

   	shift-left-click on item while chat is open will link the item
   	shift-left-click on the item when chat is not open will split stack
   	shift-right-click on the item will pick up the item.
   	    	You can drop picked up item in the empty slot.

for complete command list:

/mailto help

/mailto ?

/mailto ??

    1.7.0    Re-worked the soul-bind item scan for extra window.
            Dropped support for keychain

    Stupid new patch has killed this addon. I have been loving it for some time now. Since Devilcat isnt updating it any more and he "updated the project license to PD" whatever that is, anyone care to grab it and keep it updated?

    If no one is, can anyone recommend another addon that does what this one does? Dont need anything huge and life changing. JUst what MailTo Next does is all i am looking for. OK, i am looking for Devilcat to come back and play again and want to update this addon, you got me there. :-)

    open MailTo.lua


            Server = GetCVar("realmName")

    change it to

            Server = GetRealmName()

    Yep, knew about that option. Problem is that it will never update again or know when there is an update. I was hoping for another type of fix for the issue. Another fix like trawling devilcat out of his hole to do a quick update and upload to the addon.  :-)

    Awesome. Thanks so much springsnow! Such a simple change to make the mail addon work again, but yet I had know idea how to to do it. I love this simple mail addon. Thanks again for your help.

    Go to My addons in your Curse Client. Find Mailto and right click on it, there will be a choice that says ignored, left click it and you won't be asked to update Mailto.

    Springsnow, ignore my email for help. I got what i was looking for and got the correction done. Thank you for that. Now the AddOn is working correctly again.

    Now my question is, since i have made the change my Curse Client thinks i am using version 1.5.9 and trying to get me to update to 1.7.0 which we know wont work because of the change you offered. Anyone to make Curse Client to stop trying to update it?

    And for those who know how, since this AddON is up on Public Domain no one wants to take this for now, make the small change that Sprinsnow listed below and make an official updated AddOn for release? I would, but i am dumber than an idiot when it comes to these types of things.

    Just want to say I love this addon. When the help command quit working, I looked for another mail addon. I had already tried postal (to much) and I don't know if it tells you when your mail expires, and Easy Mail for Cosmos. I had to use Armory to tell me when my mail expired which was annoying. Also to much for my needs but pretty simple. I may have not been using either addon correctly but this one is much easier and puts the expiring mail in the chat window. I got rid of Easy Mail and enabled this addon again. I hope someone will pick it up. Wish I knew lua.

    Sad to see this not updated by its author anymore. Hoping to see it picked up by another. As a heads up I need to mention 2 flaws with this version. First one is the command list mentioned above do not work. It simply says for each line,

    MT: Undefined command, help

    MT: Undefined command, ?

     MT: Undefined command, ?? 

    Next I use CT Mod. Yes its still actively maintained and been using it since vanilla WoW. This addon interferes with CT Mod's automatic opening of the (F12) inventory backpack when I am at a mailbox. I can manually open it however. Minor blemishs on a otherwise great addon.

  • #363

    I just updated the project licence to PD.

    Hope someone will be able to pick it up.

  • #361

    Noticing errors when trying to loot or send Pet Cages. Also, Pet Cages not appearing on the mailable item windows.   :(

  • #362

    They must have added new item type (or messed wth tooltip).

    I no longer play WoW, please see the comment below.

    Right clicking on items in my mail blocks the client now for 30 seconds, instead of putting them into my inventory. It was a great addon ...

    I've been using it right along, including the right click to pick up mail, and I've been having no issues at all. I suggest you try disabling your other addons and see if MailTo really is the culprit. I suspect you've got another addon that's responsible for the problem you're seeing.

  • #359

    As I mentioned, I don't play WoW anymore.

    But if anyone can propose a fix, I am happy to edit the code and post it.

    Alternativly, feel free to clone this project and roll your own fixes.

    (Additionally, you can curse at Bliz for making WoW so dumbed down to the point of me quitting Frown)

    I don't know if Devilcat is still around or not, but as I use my mail rather heavily, I can't do without this little gem.

    I found that by simply updating the TOC to 50001 for this on the 1.7.0 release (latest at this time), the addon has so far worked flawlessly.  However, I don't use all functions of this addon, and I also use a fair few other addons that have recently been updated, so possibly they may have updated any libraries this may depend on as well, so YMMV if you want to try.
