Hello there!

I have programmed an email service that makes you able to send text messages between several computers.
It uses a graphical user interface that makes it very easy to use. Just use the arrow keys to navigate yourself.

Notice!
To be able to send messages you have to install the server version on a seperate computer!
When you have installed the mail server, remember to put the modem (wired or wireless) on the top. Otherwise you have to change the "sSide" variable in the code to the side you want to use.

Trailer


Installation
pastebin get WAR2623y installer

And if the installer doesn't work:
Spoiler

If you find any bugs, please report them to me.

Have fun! B)

Suggestion: instead of sending messages to actual computers, store all messages on the server and send messages to usernames, that way a user can access his mail on any computer and when said user logs in the server will send all messages for that user to the computer

how would this program handle long distances from sending and receiving computer. We are very spread on our server with the furthest 2 people being about 3000m apart.

Well, it is true that that would be a problem, but This is my very first "Message" program. By other words: it is defently not the best out there.
I just wanted to create something by my self with the knowledge I have.

if you love this program and what people from long distances to stay connected, tell your server admin to increase the rednet range and you wont have a problem. a warning in doing this though increases the chances of hacking the messages if not encrypted somehow.

You can improve it by rs.getSides(), the modem input required makes me kinda bad.

for i,v in pairs(rs.getSides()) do
if peripheral.getType(v) == "modem" then
rednet.open(v)
end
end

you can edit this in the code, its a variable at the top. under line 26

  • local sSide = "side that you want"

Maybe because I havn't updated it at all since I released it. I'm currently working on a new and better mail program with lots of more stuff.
