Calia and i have located the exact point of the issue and (for the moment) bypassed the problem.
For now "sent" mail will not be displayed on the screen (inbox). All of your saved messages will still be in the savedVariables file, and any new messages sent will *still* be saved in the file.
We believe the issue is due to changes ZOS is making to the inner workings of the mail system. We will be able to work around this by creating a separate interface window to list, read, and copy the sent mail.
This feature change should come within the next week or so. sorry for the inconvenience!
MailR (pronounced mailer) is an overhaul of ESO's Mail interface with additional functionality to allow saving of sent messages, replying and forwarding of messages and sending messages to your entire guild.
*** News ***
MailR will continue to be supported, and additional features will be added (over time). One of the first things that I am aiming to accomplish is merge MailR with Wykkyd Mailbox (bringing in Return To Sender functionality). This will bring all the best mailbox features together in one addon!

Mailr/Wykkyd Mailbox interoperability:
Both MailR and Wykkyd Mailbox are "aware" of each other when both are running, so they should not conflict. Please let me know if any isues arise when using both addons together.
Can Sending Guild Mail get you banned?
I have been told that ZOS will not suspend your account for this, but I heard it from a random dude on the internet....sooo.....take that for what it is worth.
Note: If you receive Error 318 (excessive messaging error) or get dropped from the game while sending Guild Mail, then you should increase the delay between messages to prevent this from occuring. You can change the Guild Mail Throttle to whatever number of seconds you want in the settings menu (the default is set to 1 second).
The messages referred to in the error are client communications with the server, not individual mail. Nor is it referring to the content of your mail being spam. This is actually a defensive mechanic the ESO server has to prevent a DDOS attack or a malfunctioning client from flooding the server.
Provides "forward" button for mail items in inbox. Forward mail messages to other players.
Provides "reply" button for mail items in inbox. This allows quick response to messages.
Sent mail is saved and displayed in the mail inbox. Sent mail can be deleted or forwarded to other players.
Right Click names in chat window to send mail
Slash commands (see below for usage) to display only inbox messages, sent messages, or both
Send Guild-wide messages
To use Guild Mail:
* Set the guild mail keybind ESC->Controls->MailR->GuildMail
* Open the Send Mail tab (usually ' key followed by clicking the send mail icon in the upper right)
* Press the Guild Mail keybind (or click the button at the bottom). This will open the"Guildies" window.
* Select the guild you wish to mail in the top right of the "Guildies" window.
* You can sort the fields by clicking the header entries (e.g name, status, recipient)
* Click individual guildies to change the recipients status (whether or not they will be included in the guild mail...you will see the recipient field change).
* Click button at the bottom of the "guildies" window to add the guild to the "to" field.
* Fill out your message and hit send as normal.
*There is no indication of who you are in the message other than your display name. E.g. Some Guildies may not know who you are, so you may want to include a signature in the mail.
* If mail is unsuccessful (mail box full or similar) this will not be reflected in the recipient count in the saved message.
* ZOS may to boot you for exceeding the "message rate limit" if you send too many mail messages at once. Therefore there is a "throttle" which is set to 1 second per mail message by default (adjustable in the settings menu). The delay between messages may take longer than the delay configured if there is high latency and the ZOS server takes a long time to reply with whether the message was sent successfully or not
NOTE: if MailR is waiting on ZOS it will be indicated in the status dialogue. This means if you have a large guild it can take quite awhile to send mail to everyone.
Sometimes it can take a really really long time for ZOS to respond with whether or not the message was sent successfully or unsuccessfully. so be patient.
* When all mail is sent, MailR will create a single saved sent message which will be available in your inbox. The "to" field will contain the guild you sent the message to and how many people recieved it.
If you exit out of the mail system before all guildies have been sent mail the guild mail will cancel itself, thus to successfully send mail to everyone you need to leave it open.
* If you hit the cancel button it will finish the current message then exit. If you exit by canceling or closing the mail window, the saved mail message will tell you how many people you sent the message to out of the total number of total expected recipients.
* You cannot send attachments via guild mail. You will be able to add them to the message, but they will not be sent!
Save received messages (no expiry)
Note: The in-game mailbox is limited to about 80 messages (+/-),
this feature does not expand the mailbox size.
Note: Saved messages are considered "sent" messages for the
purpose of slash commands
You can right click on received mail and select "Save Message" from the menu. This will create a new duplicate message in your inbox. This new message will not expire until you delete it.
If you Save A Message prior to taking attached items/gold those items will be logged in a text list within the saved message body (not the actual items or gold). If you select Save Message after you take attached items/gold those items/gold will not show up in the text list.
You can reply/forward saved messages as usual.
Please note: This feature is something that has been on the table for awhile but I finally had some free time to get it in MailR. It has had very minimal testing and there will probably be large turnaround times to fix any discovered issues, so if it sucks please revert to a previous version.
/mailr ... Slash command help menu
/mailr inbox ... Display only received inbox messages
/mailr sent ... Show only messages you have sent
/mailr all ... Show both sent and received messages
/mailer ... Directly access the settings menu
/mailr settings ... Directly access the settings menu
Make sure to change the keybinding (see attached images) for hotkey access to the reply button. If you dont do this you will see 'Unbound' or something similar when the button appears. You can still click the button for functionality, but no keybinding will be assigned.
Bugs or Limitations:
There is a maximum character limit in the message body send field so if you forward messages a lot you may notice your message gets cut off or you cant add to the message. AFAIK I cannot change this limit above a certain point (appears to be ~1000 characters, not verified).
The forward button will appear when a mail inbox item has an attachment, however, the forwarded message will not contain the attachment (you will need to take the original attachment and then reattach it to the forwarded message)
As usual please help with any bad translations.
* Updated to LAM 2.0 r23
* Fixed issue due to ZOS API update 2.6.8 on 2016-10-31 that was causing issues with saved variables loading and displaying sent mail. Sent mail data is still stored, but cannot be displayed as it was previously.

Fixed Sent Gold label from showing up offset to right.
Updated for IC (Update 7, 1.7.0/2.1.4) - note limited testing on PTS so please let me know if something is broken and I will do my best to fix it in a timely manner.
When sending guild mail successful recipients will have their "send status" switched to no. Unsucessfull recipients will still have their recipient status set to "yes". You can then sort by recipient column in guildie window to see what guildies were unable to receive your mail and then use the "add guildies to mail" button to try resending. Most likely they did not get your mail because their inbox is full (players who have not signed on for awhile are the biggest culprit) so resending wont do much good.

I develop these addons in my free time. I have a full time day job, I also have a wife, kids and pets. I do not create addons for the purpose of being paid, however, tossing a few bones eases the stress and frustration after endless hours of "code grinding" because it adds to that feeling of work "paying off". It also helps to say I make money on this when the wife ask why I spend so much time doing it
