xMail is a Bukkit plugin used to send messages and items to players on other servers, or locally. With a few simple commands you can send a message to your friend to join you on your server, or you can call over an admin to help with a server emergency.

xMail doesn't stop there, of course. xMail also allows you to send and recieve mail ONLINE at xmail.turt2live.com, allowing you to always know what's going on. xMail also offers you the ability to mass-send mail, and send mail to the consoles of servers if needed.

xMail is incredibly light weight as everything is handled on the xMail servers, all you have to do is drag and drop and you're good to go.

Cool features xMail supports

  • You can send mail to the console of any server, including the one you are on. To do so, send mail to 'CONSOLE@<server IP>'. If you want to send mail to the current server you are on, simply send mail to "console".
  • You only need to login once to be logged in on any xMail server you visit.
  • xMail supports the client mod SimpleNotice
  • xMail allows sending of items and (soon) money.
  • xMail can be used on a cloud server without ever needing to visit the xMail server. This means you can create your own xMail server and tell xMail to connect to it rather than the world-wide server
  • xMail has an API for other plugins to use. Hello developers! If you want to hook into xMail, look at the downloads page
  • MAILBOXES Yes, you can send "snail mail" to people with books. Just don't put your diamonds in the box...

xMail is an OPEN SOURCE project, plugin side. The plugin source is located on GitHub. If you would like the server source (or downloads), please visit the xMail downloads page.

Custom Servers

xMail allows you to run your own server rather than use the turt2live "main" server. If you would like to do this, make the choice of the xMail PHP server, or the xMail Java Server. If you have issues setting the servers up, please contact turt2live. Instructions, and downloads, are available on the xMail download page.

IRC Support

xMail does have an irc bot hanging out on EsperNet (#turt2live) for you to check and send basic mail. Want to run an xMail IRC bot on your own server? Check the xMail downloads page.

Need an IRC client/don't know how to connect? Use this simple client. (Provided by EsperNet)

Large Mail Blocker

Because xMail is cross-server, in versions 1.4.0+ there is a system in place to help with economy and player transfers. If configured, xMail will disallow (by default) any "large mail" messages. With the defaults, a "large mail message" is one with 257 items, $501, or 8+ diamond blocks. If any of the conditions specified are matched, the plugin can either deny, warn, or do nothing with the mail message.

By default xMail will only WARN and not deny. You will have to specify xMail to deny messages as needed. Check out the 'large-mail-rules.yml' file for more information.

    Hey turt. I was just wondering when you plan to release the next update to include Issue #6

  • Avatar of turt2live turt2live Sep 03, 2013 at 18:21 UTC - 0 likes

    @Vivi_Coral: Go

    /xmail readall

    /xmail read #

    I have a feature suggestion. Can you add the ability to remove all mail and single pieces of mail from your inbox? That would be really useful.

    It would also be better than Essentials mail in that when you do /mail clear it removes all the mail. Because of the way you've made the plugin you do:

    /xmail clear mailid
    /xmail clearall

    The console in xMail is a user, and is always logged in. You can use the same commands as a player.

    Keep in mind items cannot be sent from the console

    I really need the ability for my console to be able to send mail, is this possible at all using xMail?

    Or could it be a feature that could be added? A local "system" user, console and or server.
