MailBuddy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.4
by: Minceraft, Baertram
MailBuddy is NO "Return Bot"!
Please use "Postmaster" for a return bot and many more mail/attachment related features.


A simple add-on to help you with your mailing needs!
A must have helper for return mails.
If you want to attach all your stuff with 1 click to the mail & automatically send the mail afterwads, have a look at: DoItAll

This addon needs the following libraries installed as standalone versions:
LibAddonMenu-2.0
LibMediaProvider-1.0


New Update - Totaly rewritten addon for ESO version 1.6.5 with clean UI, more comfort, power & speed!
Now with multiple language support and character or account wide settings + new features

---------------
2 different layouts can be used now. Standard layout will add two edit fields left to the mail's recipient and subject name (old method)
Alternative layout will remove these edit boxes to keep the UI clean. You can show/hide them by right clicking the standard ESO mail recipient / subject edit box.

Several new features have been added:
-Added LAM 2.0 settings panel
-Remember last recipient & subject
-Always use the same recipient / subject
-Show number of total mails in inbox (next to unread mails) -> Excluding sent mails by "MailR" addon
-Show character-/accountname at the mail sent panel, above the recipient edit field
-Auto focus the recipient, subject or mail body field (depends on which field is still empty, and which field is filled already)
-Auto open the recipients list/subjects list on focussing the empty fields
-Button at the guild roster / friends list to show/hide the recipients list
-Remember the last state (shown/hidden) of the recipients list, at the mail send panel/friends list/guild roster
-Disable sounds
-For the old layout: Toggle visibility state of recipient or subject list by clicking the 2 edit boxes left to the recipient / subject fields


==========

Description/Example how to use:
MailBuddy is no Return Bot itsself!

The RETURN (or RTS, or BOUNCE) subject is only used for OTHER addons, like Wykkyd's Mail Return Bot or MailReturn.
You need to additionally install one of these addons at the recipient's account. If he/she will get mails with the subject RETURN, and opens his/her mailbox, the Mail return Bot will return the mails automatically.

MailBuddy is just the ther part at the sender side to speed up the mails, remind the last recipient and subject, etc. so you are able to quickly send several return mails right after each other.
In addition with the addon "DoItAll with FCO ItemSaver support" you could just open your mail sent panel, MailBuddy remembered your last recipient and subject, you press a keybind to "Attach all" items currently shown in your inventory (comes from DoItAll) and the mail will be send automatically (DoItAll settings) if it is full (or not, depends on your settings). You just need to confirm that the attachments will be sent.
Afterwards MailBuddy puts the recipient and subject in again for you (and if you have configured it in DoItAll) the next attachments will be automatically added and next mail will be sent automatically if the mail is full (if configured in DoItAll).

==========

Now the address book appears next to the Friends List & Guild Rosters when you open them, pretty neat!

Set a keybinding via Esc>Controls>Keybindings>MailBuddy>Copy Name !

When you mouse over a name on one of the lists press the button selected to copy the name to the selected page
on the address book! Working on one for the group list as well!

A BIG THANKS is going out to everyone who has contributed ideas or pointers
and also to everyone who has downloaded MailBuddy so far!



Anyone have any other ideas for functionality they'd like to see, just let me know

3.4 2021-11-21
-Updated API
-Fixed variables with wrong spelling
-Added more local speed up variables
-Recoded some redundancies

3.3 2021-10-18
-Updated API
-Removed dependency LibLoadedAddons

3.2 2021-09-19

Fixed alternative layout not being able to click any icons (hard to find out but seems ZOs changed some XML controls and thus ZO_MailSendSubjectField could not be used as a parent any longer, but ZO_MailSendSubject, the backdrop and parent of that control, needs to be used now). Thanks votan for the hint to the right direction!

Info for the future plans: Mailbuddy might be discontinued in the future and integrated into the addon "Postmaster mail". Not sure when and if this is going to happen but the UI of Mailbuddy is very old and special so there will most likely be some easier list UI with more possible entries and newer code, as a kind of plugin. Only the alternative layout via right clicking the subject/recipients box will be used then though as the older layout of Mailbuddy is taking too much space and disturbs the eye.

Thanks for looking at MailR to see what it was doing. Since mass guild mail is no longer part of MailR I don't mind commenting out the two lines you suggested.

Thanks for the info.

After testing it a bit:
Seems MailR is clearing somewhere the receiver line, subject text and body text before MailBuddy can save it.
At least MailBuddy does update the values as "" strings if MailR is enabled.

Think I found the reason. MailR' old "Guild mail" code is still calling MAIL_SEND:ClearFields() in a guild related function that was left over in the code (an event that triggers as mail was send successfully).
This will clear alll fields at the mail send UI before MailBuddy was able to store them properly.
I'll test if commenting this old function code will solve it and tell Sharlikran then.

Yeah it does, Sharli is informed
And there is a "how to fix" info at the MailR revised comments now for Rushinator!

I'm not certain at the moment. I've only spent an hour in-game after being away for a couple of years, so have not experienced the issue myself. Rushinator posted in the MailR comments:
Originally Posted by Rushinator

However right now the revised version of MailR while it doesn't create errors or crashes, does result in the Mailbuddy's feature no longer functioning. So it's as if Mailbuddy's memory feature doesn't exist.

When I disable MailR though Mailbuddy's memory feature works as intended. So I'm now stuck between choosing Mailbuddy's feature or MailR's feature
That's as much as I know at the moment. As for myself, I can't even open my mail with MailR enabled. So once I figure that one out, I'll test then post back with any more information I'm able to obtain, as well as try your suggestion above. Thank you.

Hi Baertram. I just wanted to bring to your attention that Sharlikran has picked up the MailR addon & there's a reported incompatibility with MailBuddy. Thought since they're both being looked at again that I'd let you both know, in-case contacting each other would be helpful. Thanks!

As I find the time I'll fix this. Currently not able to.
So pleae wait a bit.

btw I do not know any other adddon providing similar lists.

I see it hasn't been updated in a while, should I just retire it? Does anybody know of any other addons that have a sort of "contact list" functionality so I can just select who I'm sending to, rather than having to type their names every time?

I like this addon, but 2 things I've been looking for and it seems no mail addons can do:

1: Better reply function: while in my inbox, I cannot right click an email and select reply. I had this before with some other addon, maybe it was AUI idk. After redoing my addons (i use bandits UI now) that went away. I know I can click reply at the bottom, but right click it much smoother and I was used to having that.

2: Glyph mode: I'm a pretty busy crafter and sometimes people ask me to make 200 glyphs. Its a huge PITA to send 30+ emails with 6 glyphs at a time. I would love to have a way to say I wanna send 200 of X item to @user, and click send- then it attachs and sends the items with a progress in the subject like, 200 "Name of item" being sent in 34 mails, 1/34... then it proceeds to send 34 emails to the @user with the glyphs.

Edit: Sending 6 glyphs costs like, what, 10g per mail? Maybe it could include a COD option to cover the cost of sending if its someone we dont necessarily like that much.

What I mean is, when I made that slight change to the positioning of the menus, it only affects the menus if "APPEARANCE > Use Alternative Layout" is enabled.

is what my edit does.

I do not seem to understand that. Is it addon related (if so, what do you mean in detail please?), or esoui website "edit a comment/post" related?

You are very welcome. A quick favorite recipients list, subject list, and auto-refilling body (maybe even a future list of saved bodies) are excellent features! As a guildmaster I send a LOT of mails and this makes it so much easier!

I should have mentioned in my first post that my edit only works with the Alternate List enabled.

And make it more compatible with other addons like PP.
Hopefully will find the time for it in the future.
