But i do a lot of transfer between alts and it has happen to me a total of 5 times since 1.2 patch
Maybe i should have reported this when it first happened.

also note: one of the email was from finishing a quest
I would not delete the emails if you think they have credits or items in them. Yesterday, I was able to retrieve a few that had errored out the previous day. The emails were from successful GTN sales. Keep them until the problem is fixed.

We do hope to have this issue resolved in a future patch and apologize for the inconvenience until then.
Yeah this happened to me today. 120k item sold on the GTN and i can't get the credits.

I just had this problem for the first time today. Only happening on 1 of 7 characters, unfortunately it is my bank alt. Same error messages as everyone else "mail server operation failed" or "message could not be sent - reason unknown" (I love that one).

I also have an open ticket with no response.

It's likely that if we don't have an unscheduled downtime between now and May Day, you'll get your stuff back on 5/1 when the servers come back up. Recently that *seems* to have reset the mailbox messages to readable and items to extractable.

But our observed sampling is small and Bioware droids ain't talking specifics either about the nature of the problem or the workaround. After all, this isn't even a known problem, right?


In the meantime, run in circles yelling, "Mayday! Mayday!"

When in trouble, when in doubt...

That's typical lately after a server reboot!

Anyone reporting that they *couldn't* open an old borked email?

And anyone reporting any NEW borked email *since* the May 1 patch?

(I swear, Bioware should be paying me droid wages...
