Can someone explain why not?

I'm assuming it's so you can't sell things on the opposing GTN, but why can't I even send an email to one of my toons from Rebl to Emp?

Because the penalty for traitors is execution.

Seriously though, why would you like to openly conspire with the enemy?
No matter how right you think you are, consider that you might be wrong.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Some people just shouldn't have the right to announce it.

why do you assume by talking to the enemy one is conspiring?

It's not like in the SW universe you never had messages from one side transmitted to the other. I wouldn't mind being able to send/recieve mails tbh. Congratulate others on killing me etc.

BUT i think it would be very open to abusive behaviour.

you can always put somthing worth jack **** on the nuetral AH for a **** ton, and buy it with your rich toon. The AH wil take some of the cut if my understandings are correct but they dont seem too bad in this game.

( i question this because when u fail an auction you get re-embursed and im pretty sure i have sold an aitem for 150000 money and got 165000 money for the sale so that must have been either the whole or part of the cut that the AH would get)

Or maybe a legacy option, if only to mail stuff to yourself

How would it be conspiring with a enemy?
Last i checked i dont hate myself. I have alts on the same server on both factions.

I think your taking the game far to seriously! The other faction is not your enemy they are players just like you and me. Matter of fact i have not fought one single other faction player in this game. I kill tons of empire NPC's but refuse to fight real people.

Legacy is cross faction. If legacy is cross faction asking to be able to send mail to alts is not asking a lot.

It's not a matter of taking the game too seriously, rather actually playing the game.

The game says both sides are enemies, thus you can't communicate with the enemy.
