Regarding Cross-realm mailIIRC, the main problem deals with initial system architecture. The whole reason that blizzard wanted people to "link their battle.net accounts with their wow accounts" (come on people, we got Mr. Chilly for doing this early :P), was to allow for future additions, such as cross realm mail and realid (aka cross realm chat).This was discussed via twitter and reported on wow insiders about a year agohttp://wow.joystiq.com/tag/cross-realm-mail/Correct me if i am wrong, but if i recall correctly (i cannot find the old blizzard blue post), it has to deal with the fact that technically the servers are separate entities, and the characters are stored as a list on each server, rather than simply a massive overhead list bound to the account. Evidence to support is when a specific server is down for maintenance, that you cannot even see what characters you have on the server, as the client has to reference the server directly, rather than simply being able to check against your account.@stella, I agree, in 4.1 i doubt we will see cross-realm mail, but it's hopefully on the horizon...
