Ingame Mail Anti-Spam Mechanic

After years of this unpleasant system, can we please get 2 conditions build in that allow sending ig mails without cooldown?
1. Receiver and Sender have each other friended
2. Receiver and Sender represent the same guild

    Not totaly related but not completly irrelevent either the ingame mute system on map channel could use an improvment as well...
    Quite frustrating when you try to lead an event to be mute after a few messages...

    I can't remember where I saw it but I remember a dev commenting on this issue years ago saying it was a limitation in the system that couldn't be changed easily. If I have time later I'll try to find the post.

    Here's a post from some time ago that speaks to this:

    I agree that it is annoying. The issue has been discussed several times. I may be wrong, but it seems to me that the main reason for this limit is to help preventing gold sellers. I would have to browse the forum to find again the thread in which it was explained in details. If I recall correctly, for now, there is no easy alternative solution that can be put in place.

    That is correct. With limitless mails, RMT will start spamming every account in the game. :( I understand the desire, but I also understand the reasons for the limitations. I will bring this up with the devs to see if there's a potential work-around, but so far, one (without drawbacks) has not been evident or something that was reasonable and without risk to implement.

    I am a very casual player.

    Heh... no, I just remember seeing topics rotate back around and use the Forums Search function.

    I think the issue here is the OP wants to spam more mail, and the game won't let them.

    If we want ANet to step up their game, then we must step up ours.

    I guess the anti RMT measures work great? Been here all along and have seen nor heard from a gold seller.

    When the game was still fairly new you would be getting dozens of spam whispers from gold sellers every time you posted on the forums. I stopped posting for a while because the ingame spam got too annoying.

    PvP? What's that? Never heard of it.

  • Indeed, there used to be a LOT of Gold-seller spam in chat. As well as lots and lots of gathering and bear-bow bots running around PvE.

    There is a difference between whispers, and letters. I feel like removing the limit for players who have each other as friends isnt a bad idea. I sure as hell dont add bots/goldsellers or trolls to my friends list.

    There were lots of letters/mail, as well. One of the reasons the Report feature was there.
