*** The Norrathian Express ***

- Now you can exchange messages with your friends via the new in-game mail system.

- You can send and receive mail at Norrathian Express mailboxes located in East Freeport and Qeynos Harbor, as well as all districts and villages.

- If you have unread mail waiting for you, you will see a mail icon in your Spell Effects window. This icon will always appear in the first slot, and mousing over it will inform you that "You have unread mail."

- Members of guilds that are level 15 and higher can purchase their own mailbox through status merchants.

- Clicking on a mailbox will open the Mail window, which has two tabs: Inbox and Send.

- Mail will be deleted 3 days after opening it, while unread mail will be deleted after 30 days. The time remaining until deletion is shown to the right of each letter.

- Letters can contain money or an item, shown below the text of the letter. You can accept these parcels by clicking the Receive Gifts button.

- To reply to the sender, click on the Reply button.

- You can send along one item or any amount of coin with your letter. To send money, click the Give Coin button and enter the amount you wish to send. You can change your mind by clicking Give Coin again and clearing the amount. To include an item, drag the item you wish to send from your character's inventory onto the slot in the gifts area. You can change your mind by right-clicking on the item and choosing to remove it, or by dragging and dropping it onto an open section of the screen.

- You can only send gifts to another character that is a citizen of the same city you are, though you can send text-only messages to anyone. Items sent through the Norrathian Express cannot be Lore, No Trade, No Zone, or Temporary.

- Your Inbox is limited to a total of 50 messages. If someone tries to send you a message when your Inbox is full, they will receive a message telling them so.
- Plain text letters or those with coin attached cost 10c to send. Letters with gifts attached cost 50c. There is no charge to read mail that has been sent to you.

- You can send messages to your friends on other servers, or to those who play EverQuest and Star Wars Galaxies!

- To send mail to someone on another EQ2 server, enter the name as servername.charname

- To send mail to a friend playing EQ, enter the name as eq.servername.charname

- To send mail to a friend in SWG, enter the name as swg.servername.charname

- Players in SWG or EQ can send mail to EverQuest II players by entering the name as eq2.servername.charname

Maybe I did it wrong, but I sent one to Sapphie last night and it came back as undeliverable.
