Problem with email sending

Briefly: the sent mail is visible in the mailbox only after the relogin occurs.


  • I am sending a letter using the EVE ESI API to myself.
  • Sender - Daughter of Ares
  • Recipient - Daughter of Ares
  • Request and response contents:
POST /dev/characters/2119658569/mail/ HTTP/1.1
Authorization: XXX

{"approved_cost":0,"body":"first email test","recipients":[{"recipient_id":2119658569,"recipient_type":"character"}],"subject":"somesubject"}

  • The character Daughter of Ares is in the game (logged in)
  • When opening the mailbox (Alt-I), the sent email is not visible.
  • I waited about 10 minutes, the email did not arrive.
  • If you re-login to the client, the email appears immediately.

I expect different behavior - the letter appears in the mailbox immediately after sending, regardless of whether the character is logged in or not.

Yes, that is a known issue. If you’re looking for a solution, the workaround is to send the evemail from another character. If you simply want to report the bug, do so on GitHub. Don’t expect this to ever be fixed, though.
