This may or may not be somewhat of a pet issue. I'm not certain if smaller corporations have the same problem but I imagine any corporation over a certain size will run into this situation and I feel it's something that could be addressed.

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!

Sounds good to me. You can help your situation in the mean time, make an alt with few roles so you can convo/mail and have a nice tidy inbox.

I hear stories of CEOs getting flooded with tons of message like you say and a way to block out the ones you don't want seems like a fine idea to me.

*edit* forgot support lols

Agreed - corporation logging should happen in the Corporation window, not via EveMail. Of course, this would require the Corporation window to get a total overhaul, but it needs one anyways.

Agreed, a corporate activity log or something of the sort would win. I imagine it'd be a simple conversion similar to how killmails used to come in raw-text to the inbox rather than the character sheet combat log.

Although I'm not a CEO myself I can see the benefits to this suggestion. Anything that makes Corporation Management easier is a good thing in my book.

never been a CEO, but I was in an alliance long enough to get annoyed by the constant POS mail spam.

I think CCP should rework the Corporation interface to be the central management interface with all the logging (and mail spam) happening there.

IMO a corp mechanic overhaul is long due. Currently the divisions have almost no meaning except restricting cash flow a bit. At least an internal corporation contract system is needed.

Laughing Use a corporate commanding alt, Evemail is completely broken when it comes to being a CEO.

I must agree with this issue though.

They fixed killmails, this can't be so much harder.

Supported. Fuel mails could be put on a character sheet tab like killmails. Much much more can be done to allow players to customize the mails they get. This is a step in the right direction.

Even something as simple as another mail tab for "automated mails" for directors/ceos would go a LONG way towards making evemail usable. I know I get 200+ a day. It's not something you can deal with, only ignore.

Agreed completely, this has been a long time in coming.

As much as I love logging in to thousands of evemails in my inbox, I support this issue.

It's sad it takes a CSM to bring this to light.

I remember the time when a bug caused all members to get the usual director-only mail. One gem that I got during that time was the character "Richard Astley" applying to Goonfleet, with the following text:

2007.12.07 02:32
We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
Gotta make you understand

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

We've known each other for so long
Your heart's been aching but you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it

And if you ask me how I'm feeling
Don't tell me you're too blind to see

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

As such, to prevent any future rick-rolling thanks to undocumented evemail changes, I heartily endore this service and/or product.

Signed. Also a usable interface for eve mails would be nice.
