Re: New mail popup
What popup are you talking about? The only mail-related popups I can think of are the ones that ask you to confirm taking a COD item (and sending the requested money amount).

Re: Trade popup
Not possible. Accepting a trade requires a hardware action (click or keypress); an addon cannot do it automatically See the "Things Addons/Macros Can't Do" sticky thread in the Addon Search/Requests forum (which is where your post should be, since you're looking for a new addon, not asking for help with an existing addon):

There's some new popup window for mail. Some players are getting downright belligerent about it on the wow forums. They want it removed.

I haven't received any in game mail yet, so I haven't seen it.

The popup happens when you send mail to a character that is not yours. I get no popup sending to an alt, but the mail I sent to a guildie yesterday gets a popup. I don't regularly send mail to characters not my own, so it's not that big of a deal, but it is slightly frustrating that the popup should know who my guildies are.

I assume trading has this new confirm box as well. The confirm button is even delayed about a second or so to prevent accidental clicks. It may also prevent code from circumventing it.

OT: Petrah, after reading your signature, have you seen !sh?

The new popups are secure frames. You cannot circumvent them with addons. (From what I've seen, it should only appear when sending mail with items or gold to a character that is not your own.)

They were added because of addons like WeakAuras not being willing to take the necessary steps to prevent scam code from being run (i.e., whitelisting only for imported code). You can see some of the discussion at one of the bug reports.

Despite what the authors are discussing at some points in there, their blacklist was more-or-less useless (makes it slightly harder to do, but not that much harder), with there always being ways to gain access to the mail and trade frames via :GetParent() and :GetChildren() methods. So this is Blizzard's solution, and if you find a way to circumvent it from an addon, that is a bug.

It's outdated by 2 years, but I will check it out. Thank you!

There's an annoying misfeature in this mail popup: it doesn't recognize your own characters if you add server suffix after name.

Until they fix it you can use Postal. Once it knows all of your characters (on any realm) you'll never see another popup when sending things to your alts.
