“As it stands, as CEO of Goonfleet my evemail is unusable. This is because every single corporate going on generates an individual evemail. Every time a player joins, an evemail. Every time a player leaves, an evemail. Every time a POS runs low on fuel, an evemail. Every time something is shot, an evemail. Essentially this puts me and I'm sure at least a few others in a position where our evemail is completely unusable.

It is my assumption that this was not the intended purpose of the evemail system, but rather that the evemail system was intended for communicating. To allow for other players to get in touch with me regarding issues when I'm offline or to initiate diplomatic contact. I would propose that a separate system be used for logging corporate events, be it a log similar to the new kill log, or a separate mail account specific to the corp's needs. There have been a number of times in my case where attempts at communication have gone ignored, including communications from CCP, simply because I cannot at times even open my evemail. It would take a significant amount of time to clean this up, and even should I do so it will be self defeating because I will receive hundreds of evemails a day.

Essentially I'd like to see these messages going somewhere else so that my evemail can be used for... evemailing. I'm not sure how much support this topic will receive as I'm not sure how widespread a problem it is but in my case it's untenable. Thanks!”

Potential Solutions[edit]

  • Move corporate logging events to a log much like was recently done with killmails.
  • Create a separate mailbox for corporate events.
  • Create the ability to opt out of receiving certain notifications.
