Mailbox to Email

I know these ideas are coming thick and fast at the moment but I'm just going through the ideas currently in my mailbox. I'm hoping most of these won't take me long to code and I'd rather get them all done before I move onto the next major changes.

This idea is down to receiving your mailbox mail via your email.

Firstly I intend it to be an optional feature so on your account you will check a box if you want this.

I was going to make it so that every mail into your mailbox will also be received by email but this may not be feasible as some of the messages will be coming from the end of week procedure.

Therefore I changed my plan so that it would be a daily mail to say how many new messages you had (if any) and a link to the site. Perhaps even stating who the mails are off.

Do you see any benefit in having this option? Would you tick the box to receive a daily update if you had new mail?


  1. The benefit is in trade. You need headers in the email also. So if it is just a chat, you can ignore it.

    Another option is to rss feed the mailbox.

  2. Jonathan, I guess you are referring to the mails that say player bids have been accepted or rejected?

    Now I have got rid of the mails that you know about (placing players on transfer list etc) then I see what you mean.

    I could make it so that only the transfer/loan emails are sent.

    RSS feed could be more complex as you have to be logged into get your messages - I wonder how facebook et al do that......

  3. I beleive the people's personal browsers can get around the login problem, by if they save their password to the browser then that was run that on the RSS feed.

    I think...
