Postal Mail Mod - Opening Mail Easier

It's all about working smarter not harder right? Once you get to the point where you have hundreds of auctions it can get a bit tedious opening all that mail. You have better things to do than sit there and click each letter one by one.

There is a great mod called Postal which allows you to open up all of your mail at once! It also puts an auto-complete field in with a list of all of your bank alts that it has a record of you logging in with. Ever open up all your mail, grab all your money, then go "how much gold did I just pull out?," no biggie it has a rake feature that will show you the total amount of gold you received out of your mailbox.

You can download postal here (

PRO TIP - Reducing mailbox openspeed
Ever notice that once you reach 50 messages that you have have to wait for the next batched to be delivered? There is a way we can decrease the amount of time it attempts to pull more messages within postal. What we will need to do is edit an lua file within postal.

Go to your world of warcraft folder (usually in program files) -> Interface -> Addons -> Postal -> postal.lua (open with notepad)

Now look for the line -> OpenSpeed = 0.50,
It should be the 11th line down. Change the 0.50 to 0.10. This is recommended for connections with very low latency. If you have higher latency you can try testing it with 0.20 or 0.30.

If you don't want to use a mail addon you can use this macro to pull all items out of the mail. "/script CheckInbox() for m = GetInboxNumItems(), 1, -1 do TakeInboxItem( m ) end"

If you're still stubborn the only other way to speed up mailbox load times is by doing /reload but I would only recommend doing this if you have a powerful computer.

Hope this helps streamline your auction house profiting!
