I just got my ship, and i see I have some mail by looking in the upper left of the screen. However, it doesn't appear my ship is equipped to handle mail. It can handle holos, so why not mail?

Or am I overlooking something?

I guess the Galactic Postal Service can't deliver physical items to your ship, since it is not a stationary thing. Most mail includes credits or some other item.

Yeah, getting mail on your ship would be great. Unfortunately, it's not one of the features. You just have to land at a convenient mailbox.

Well, credits are not necessarily a physical item.

It's entirely possible that our characters are actually buying and selling with the Star Wars equivalent of a debit card, bank account, and electronic money transfers.

But I agree with your other point about the physical items (weapons, armor, and such) that are sent via mail.

Still, it's always possible that the developers will add a Mailbox to the ship's features at some point. It would be nice to have.

If I can send my companion off to build me a custom speederbike, I should be able to send her to a damn post office.

NO kidding. It's a good thing we don't have to get our starship pilot's license from a DMV. That would essentially make the level cap 17-ish, since we'd all be standing in line. On the upside, just think of how easy it would be to get social points while waiting in that line...

I'll add my vote for a mailbox on the ship too.

Plus, I'd like Mr. Annoying Robot to act as a vendor.
