Better Inbox  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r88-release
by: Ammo [More]
BetterInbox replaces the default paging Blizzard inbox with a scrollable inbox with some extra features.

- Summary of invoices, attachments and gold at the top.
- Dropdown embedded to select what to open, all mail, all items, all gold.
- Select certain mails via a checkbox and open the selected mails, items or gold

The open all feature might still have some quircks with battleground tokens you can't pick up.

See the screenshot for an example of the attachment summary and looks.

Enjoy,

-Ammo

Since this release, whenever I try to /target someone the little box pops up saying "BetterInbox has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI." There's no errors accompanying it, only that.

Could you maybe have the drop-down choice persist across sessions, or (a better solution) have an option to change the default choice.

Thanks for writing this mod, Ammo!
I added this feature to the next version. just need to test it some.

I think I've narrowed it down - if at any point you run POSTAL even if you disable it, it will break Better Inbox. Once I go into ..\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<username>\<server name>\<character name>\SavedVariables and erase the postal variables then log back in Better Inbox works fine.

I'll post on Postal's site as well - I'm not sure who's causing the problem - just wanted to let you know.

Have a strange problem - one day I did a /reloadUI because of changing some addons and when I got back I had mail, so I checked it, but the mailbox (Better Inbox) screen was...messed up. I could see the check boxes, I could see the boarders of where buttons should be, but nothing was listed. I couldn't do anything.

I tried removing the addon and redownloading it but it would not work. So I downloaded Postal (a similar addon that I don't like as much) and it worked fine.

Now the weird part is if I enable both Better inbox and postal at the same time, then better inbox fuctions as normal, but w/ postal's buttons overlayed (and intruding) on BI's interface.

Confused, I decided to look in saved variables and erase anything BI related, but couldn't find anything...

Any ideas?

Thank you so much.

I found another mod I could probably have lived with, but Better Inbox is, well... better. I'm very happy to have it back!

This is an issue with the blizzard mail icon. I intend to fix the tooltip on the mail icon somewhat and update it as well from my addon. Not sure when I will have the time or the PC to do that though.

3.0.2 update, please?

I love this addon madly, but with the 3.0.2 patch I'm having trouble -- when I try to use the scrollbar, I get an error. Trying to use it again doesn't give an error, but neither does it actually scroll. Any chance of an update? Going back to stock mail sucks, especially with how many auctions I have, and no other addons do what I want -- which is, pretty much, exactly what Better Inbox does. Or did, anyway!

Thanks.
