By default, players can send three types of mail: letters, written books, and packages. However, players with the mail.custom permission can send any item as mail.
Letters will only be enabled in setups using Minecraft 1.14 and up. Letters are similar to books, but can be crafted for cheaper. Unlike books, letter can not be placed in lecterns or used in other crafting recipes, such as those for copying written books.
Letters use the new custom model data to work with the Star Mail resource pack downloadable here.
Packages are used to send groups of items in the mail. Right click with an empty package to open up a menu. Place the items you want to send in the menu, then click on the seal button. Once the package is sealed, the items will be tracked using the tracking number on the item.
Right click on a sealed package will open a menu. Click on any string to cut it and open the package. Once opened, all the items can be collected by clicking on the fishing pole, or by closing the menu. Once the package is empty, it will be consumed in a poof of smoke.
Packages can also be used to decorate. Right click on an empty package while sneaking to place it! Sealed packages can not be placed.
Tracking & Expiration:
Information about both packages and sent mail are tracked and stored while the server is offline. To prevent large amounts of data from building up, a tracking expiration is used. This prevents inactive mail from taking up lots of space. By default, mail and packages are tracked for 30 days. The number of days until expiration is configurable in the config.yml file.
To register a mailboxes, players simply need to place a mailbox block. By default, each player can register one mailbox. Clicking on your mailbox will open a menu for viewing and collecting received mail.
Clicking on another player's mailbox will open a menu. Insert a valid mail item and click the arrow to send mail.
Mailboxes will will send the owning player notifications when mail is received and shortly after joining. Players can disable these notifications in the mailbox menu.
The globalbox is a globally usable mailbox. Interacting with a globalbox will open the mail collection menu.
The postbox is a block that allows players to send mail to any other player. Interacting with the block will open a menu for inserting, addressing, and sending mail.
Star Mail makes it possible to access and send mail from anywhere. Players with sufficient permission can send mail using the /sento [player] command. The /mailbox command will open a virtual mailbox to access sent mail.
Star Mail is compatible with Dynamp. Dynmap is web based map for Minecraft servers. You can download it here.
