Realistic Mail and Mailboxes

    Immersive and simple plugin to add mailboxes that work to your server. Just place a chest/barrel/shulker box on top of any fence or wall block to make a mailbox!
    Right-click the mailbox to check your mail; it opens the container normally. But if you right-click while crouching, it will instead open that mailbox's Outbox, shown below.
    The address of the mailbox is shown at the top of the inventory. THIS IS CASE SENSITIVE, because the case and abbreviations are what tell the Server where this mailbox is in the world. It is a real in-game location, altered to look like an address.


    To send mail, simply craft a writable book and write your letter inside. Remember to sign it!
    Make sure to rename it exactly the same as the address of the mailbox where the mail is being sent.
    Once it is renamed, crouch and right-click your mailbox to send your mail. Insert your mail, and then close your inventory.
    If you followed these instructions, then your mail will automatically send and appear in the mailbox at the address you wrote.

    COMMANDS (currently ops only):
    /sendmail <name> <0-1 anonymous> <message>

    Every 10 minutes, everyone gets a notification if they have virtual mail sent to them via /sendmail (command only available to ops). Notifications can be turned off, mail read and mail cleared all via text buttons; no need for a GUI.

    Permissions coming soon. Please leave a review and go to the Discussion tab to suggest any modifications or features. Enjoy!

    You should add a feature to have custom addresses because that would be cool. Otherwise, great plugin!

      The thing about the address is the plugin uses that to determine where to send the mail. I may make the addresses formattable in a config file in the future though.

    Post boxes do not appear but it's a good idea and it would be great to see the source code because for myself I want to change that /sendmail user true message
    That is unnecessary long. I'd do it that way: /sendanon and /sendmail

      Post boxes cannot appear, as you have to build them by placing a box on a post. As for the command, that's more of an admin command not intended to be used by players.

    Players enjoy this small gimmick on my server, its easy to install and use! Only down side is you are not told if the mailbox has mail inside it. Cant wait to see what get added next.

      Thanks for the review! That's a good idea; I'll see about adding a kind of "flag" to the mailbox asap. :)
