    @Smidds you get that every time you log in? that's strange... and you said there wasn't a single email in the account you had created? if it's empty it shouldn't give you that error D:
    @Codisimus any ideas as to why it's doing that for him?

    Getting same text spam issue, Codisimus were lookng forward to the update! :)

    Edit: seem to have fixed it, if you have any users needing verified or cant verify, go to the email.save file and change the ending of the user from -1;0;0;,;,;; to 0;0;0;,;,;;

    Fixed it for me, let me know if it helped :) Bukkit server 1000

    Seriously.. I cant figure out how to delete myself off the list.. there is no /text delete.. or something like that..
    Someone help me out?
    I didnt get my confirmation message and now it just says number not confirmed.. so.. what do I do?

    if you want to remove your number delete the emails.save file (NOT the email.properties file)

    Ohh well Im just a normal Admin on the server, I dont have acces to console. So I have to ask the Owner to do it?
  17. Offline


    yea probably, otherwise there's no way that I know of to delete you. You could ask the owner to open that file and delete just the line that has your name starting it.
    the one that has my name starting it is:

    This seems to allow messages to be sent, but doesn't solve the problem of the server not accepting messages.

    Useful if all you want is to receive updates about the server, but still doesn't allow for responses.

    Better than I was before though, so still thanks for the tip.

    Power I had the same issue, couldnt figure it out for the life of me. One of the users on here mentioned that you may just need to start a brand new google account and use the default email settings, and it worked great after that.
  20. Offline


    I actually did make a brand new gmail account specifically for this purpose, and didn't change any settings. You are running 1060 and it's functioning properly only sending the texts it should and allowing responses?

    And on a slightly different note, at this point when I text back a reply, I get the email, and it doesnt get deleted, would this imply a wrong port even though the default things are for gmail?

    Unfortunately Power I do not know what is causing this from your side.

    Hey, I have a couple of suggestions for this, not sure how well they'd work.

    1. When I signed up to Gmail, I had to do a text confirmation. When I got the text, my phone said "1 new message from Google" - could we make it push a name like that, so for our server we could put "1 new message from Silvania" (our servers name)

    2. Could we hook it up somewhere to a paypal donate link, so they can "text to donate" somehow? The money would be taken from their credit to donate with

    Not sure if they're possible at all, but it would be awesome :D


    I can't seem to get this to work at all. Can you please tell me the number format, for a UK number? (for example, do I do 07..., or +447..., or 00447...) - I tried 07... and in my sent box on gmail it says its sent, but my phone hasn't received anything.

    EDIT: Added my email address, and I get an email for every message sent in game. I don't have the permissions nodes for user so I shouldn't be getting them right..?
    Removed the plugin for now because it was spamming my inbox. If you could tag me in a reply that'd be great, looks like a really useful plugin :)

    Any way to make this send a text when a player dies? Would be wonderful for any server playing Hunger Rules Games.

    Everyone who sets up their phone gets texted constantly if it is correctly verified, however, sometimes when they verify it by texting back "enable" it doesn't work right. Anything I'm doing wrong? Here's the code:
    22:52:18 [INFO] [C/A] bunny777: be back later  cya man
    22:52:18 [INFO] Sending Message...
    22:52:18 [INFO] User's Number/Email has not been verified
    22:52:20 [INFO] bunny777 lost connection: disconnect.quitting
    22:52:20 [INFO] Connection reset
    22:52:22 [INFO] Moderator [C/A] Chadward27: ok
    22:52:22 [INFO] Sending Message...
    22:52:22 [INFO] User's Number/Email has not been verified
    Note how after each message a player says, it sends a message to the unverified phone number.

    is this going to be upgraded to 1060?

    @Codisimus Could you add 'Tesco' to the list of supported carriers?
    Not sure if the full name is "Tesco" or "Tesco Mobile" though.
    For the record, it is a U.K. based provider as far as I know, should that matter :)

    - Thanks in advance, either way.

    Not a big deal, I at least get all messages, managed to only have it text me when players join and quit, or the server starts. Then again I haven't set up my dedicated server again so it's on my main pc, lag = spams of text lol, definitely not the plugins fault, hopefully when I set up the dedicated server and redo everything it will just kind of decide to work properly.

    The coolest plugin EVER!!!! little confusing to set up up but once it works...ITS AWSOME.....btw i got it to work by changing the port to 587 :)
