GMail Reference Guide - Vanilla World of Warcraft Addon

This has absolutely nothing to do with the Google Gmail product. The name comes from the author of the addon, Grennon.

GMail is an addon for Vanilla World of Warcraft that adds some time saving features to the mail system. This is critical to have if you want to effectively use the auction house, which requires sending and receiving a lot of mail.

World of Warcraft: Classic Compatibility

GMail is no longer needed in World of Warcraft: Classic. The functionality is built in to the client.


You can download it from these sites:


Extract the downloaded file and drag the GMail folder into the Interface/AddOns folder in your World of Warcraft game folder.

How to Use

GMail makes sending and receiving large amounts of mail with attached gold or items a breeze.

GMail Inbox It adds two buttons to your Inbox, Open Selected and Open All, which make it simple to collect all of the items and gold from your mailbox. If your bags fill up during the opening process, it leaves any remaining messages untouched. Open Selected opens only the messages that you have checked. Open All, unsurprisingly, opens every message.

GMail Mass Mail For sending, it adds a new tab to the mailbox called Mass Mail, which lets you send multiple items at a time. This can't send them all in one message, but sends one message for each item. It even displays the cost of postage in the window. You can add items easily by alt-clicking them in your bag.

There are no settings to adjust or Slash Commands. This is a very straightforward, easy to use, must have addon.
