OK, very old idea here, but, it would be great to be able to leave persistent PMs for characters.

We can use the forum PMs for OOC messages to players but it would be cool to be able to leave messages in-game for characters.

+1. I think it would be very useful.

Where would you go to pick up your messages?

If you have a player house or inn room, would they be delivered there?

Would everyone have a PO box? Or a PO box if you don't have a house or inn room?

Would there be more than one post office? One per Third?

Maybe you could even send a package to another player?

I like this idea. It would be fun to be alle to send messages again

Would messages be threaded, like emails, where replies include the entire history of previous replies? Or stand-alone like paper letters?

Cool.

The simplest implementation would be a post office with carriers who'll deliver your mail & packages to your player house, if you have one; or hold them for you to pick up, if not. Works for you?

We do have CityNet, though, so it's a bit cumbersome to have messages limited to old school paper with hand delivery. Suppose you can send packages for hand-delivery, but written messages are electronic and you write/read them from a CityNet terminal, or a tablet computer, or etc.
