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.

    A way around the need for players to enter their password or register would be great. Can you have it allow players to use xmail based on their username if the server is in online mode?

    What I meant by that was that the plugin was loading; now I'm getting the "you don't exist" spam :\

    I've noted the errors that are appearing in the log here: https://gist.github.com/kierdavis/5365884

    Should I open this as an issue on the Github project?

    Should be fixed now, sorry for the delay. (Restart your server if the change doesn't propagate in 20-30 minutes)

    I really love the idea of this plugin! It's a shame it's not working on my server at the moment - it tells me that the plugin version is not supported by the server.

    I guess that this means that the plugin is too new for the server - is this just a problem of the latest PHP server version not having been loaded onto xmail.turt2live.com?

    I'm running version 1.5.0 on CraftBukkit b2723 (MC 1.5.1)
