Notice: In Game Mail Expiration - 3/30/2016
Similar to the mail purge that happened before JTL's release on live, we are taking measures to combat an ever growing volume of in-game mail on Basilisk.
Beginning with publish 8 we will be enabling a system to expire (delete) old mail. Instead of a one-time purge like happened on live, mail will be checked and expired during each server startup. The age at which a mail will be eligible for expiration is set at 6 months (the same age used on live during the mail purge).
Due to the sheer volume of mails on Basilisk, all old mail will not expire right away. We've put a throttle in place and only so many mails will expire with each server start. It will likely be some time before Basilisk expires all of it's old mail. Just know that any mail older than 6 months might disappear along with any server restart. There is no predictable order to which all the old mail will expire.
Why are we announcing this now? We felt that many of you might have older in game mails that you would like to hang on to. We're giving you this heads up so that you can take steps prior to the publish to save any info contained in old mail that you might want to keep.
You know what to do...
Thanks for your understanding and continued support.
