You've got Galactic Mail

My task this week for the Untitled game is to get a working job in.  A job is not a quest really, but it will do for lack of a better term.  It just basically means 'doing something.'  There are a bunch of pieces to this task, the first of which is to be able to find out about it.

One method a player can use to find out information is through an in-game Mail system.  This is only a one way tool, NPC's to you.  It's pretty simple, you get mail, and read it.  There is nothing to accept, like you would a quest.  If an NPC asks something of you, you can go do it or just ignore them.  They will just end up asking someone (npc) else.
