For Minetest 5.0 and above

How do I install this?

This is a fork of @cheapie's mail mod

It adds a mail-system that allows players to send each other messages in-game and via webmail (optional).

Use it with the /mail command or the provided button in the unified_inventory mod.

It is compatible with all 5.x Minetest versions (tests based on mtt).

Do you recommend this mod?

  • Great for contacting offline people or sharing extended text

    This mod, based on cheapie's, is even more useful than the original. My personal highlights are the inclusion of the outbox and the fact that you can now /mail <username> and it actually opens the compose form to send that user a mail message.

    Mail is pretty much the ideal solution for letting players contact others who are offline, especially administrators and moderators. Of course it may not scale to a huge server, where the admin might end up with two dozen mail messages every time they log in, some of which may be obsolete. But it does work well overall for small to medium servers. With mail mod, you can leave signs on your properties that say things like "If there are any problems or requests, simply /mail Blockhead" and people can leave feedback that you are sure to receive.

    For roleplay/realism, I would instead recommend - as an alternative or additional system - everamzah's mailbox mod (or the version in homedecor, if you like the art style and don't need things like post offices). You can send goods, including books, through mailbox, which may be preferable.

    I wouldn't recommend /mail, or Minetest in general, as a secure means of communication. The server admin can read the contents of messages easily enough, even if it's not directly included as a mod feature, and the Minetest protocol is (at the time of review) not encrypted. For that purpose I would use an out-of-game system like Matrix, PGP-signed email and so on.
