Age of Wonders Email Wrapper

Author File Description


The Age of Wonders Email Wrapper is a Windows program that makes Play by Email 100% faster and easier. By automating the sending and receiving process you can devote all of your attention into playing the game and not into worrying about who the next player is or attaching the correct file to your email. Everything is taken care of by the Wrapper and, because of this, mistakes that could be made during manual email sending are eliminated. The Wrapper can be set to auto start with Windows whereupon it will notify you and remind you whenever you have game turns to play.

Release Notes: (maintenance build, 10th October 2013)
  1. Tutorial videos.
  2. The Wrapper is free and covered by the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE.
  3. Mozilla Thunderbird database integration for finding your email settings.
  4. Directly supports the MP-Evolution patch. The Wrapper will now show MPE games in the Activity Log separately to Shadow Magic ones and you can launch the MPE executable by double clicking in the Activity Log or from the Wrapper system tray menu.
  5. Full, clean, uninstall process which clears down any registry settings the Wrapper might have made and any configuration files on the disk. So basically your email send screen will go back to manual if you chose to no longer use the Wrapper.
  6. Greatly increased the turn-key factor with the automatic account creation wizard. Users now just have to enter their email address and password.
  7. Now supports 11 languages (English, Francais, Deutsch, Espanol, Nederlands, Dansk, Polski, Suomi, Romana, Svenska, Русский).
  8. Improved user interface and appearance. More information on the Activity Log.
  9. The Games now communicate with the Wrapper on a higher / safer port number than the default SMTP port (25). The practical upshot of this is that the Wrapper is a lot less likely to trigger false alarms with email scanning applications.
  10. Users upgrading from the previous Wrapper should uninstall the old version before installing this new one. Your configuration will not be lost.
  11. Bug fix. Error bubble saying "A generic error occurred in GDI+" appearing after several days of continuous, one minute interval, email polling. Caused by Microsoft bug ID 345656. Fixed and tested.
  12. Bug fix. Failure to correctly download email file attachments where a colon was used in the game title. Caused by the colon making it into the file name and the save throwing an IO exception. Fixed and tested. All other invalid path and file name characters are now protected against.
  13. Updated the automatically created email settings for yahoo accounts to use their IMAP server.
  14. Minor corrections to the translations for some languages.
  15. Updated the credits on the About tab to include names of translators and code contributors.

I just thought I would mention that I can be contacted on IRC ( or Channel #AoW. If you need help with the Wrapper. Speak to Davespice.

The greatest program for any still playing PBEM AoW player! Simple to set up, easy to manage, and keeps track of what turns you've received and sent! You'll wonder how you ever managed to play PBEM without it.

Additional Comments:
No PBEM player should go without it!
maxrealism If you are involved in several PBEM games, you can use the Activity Log to keep track of game progress i.e. sent, received, ended etc.

Ideal for anyone who plays by email. It's easy to configure. With a simple options layout. This tool reminds you when you have remaining turns to take and when your turns are received. So there is no reason not to engage in a bit of play by email today!

It's a must for any PBEM players. With the ability to periodically download games to your playing folder, to automatically send your game immediately in a second, and to easily track your games through activity log, the Wrapper makes PBEM even more enjoyable than you've ever been before.

Additional Comments:
The traditional autosend by the game itself require is not always reliable even when you have an SMTP server from your own ISP. Besides, with large game files and slow connection, you'd have to wait a while for the in-game sending process to finish. With the wrapper, the game is rapidly sent to the wrapper where the sending process will be taken care of. You can continue playing the next game in just seconds.

Announcement for Yahoo users: It used to be that only UK yahoo users could use their POP service, but it appears they have an IMAP email server that everyone can use. So if you install the Wrapper and input your email address, you just need to change a few values on the Accounts / Incoming Email tab to get this working. Set Email Type to IMAP, Server to and the port to 993. Then hit Save.

easy to use and works perfectly!

Additional Comments:
The only thing i think could be changed is to send emails with the files as answers to the emails received, just to get things more organized.

In reply to monstro22. Unfortunately that is not going to be possible. Since the Wrapper does not generate the emails that get sent out, the game does. All the Wrapper does is catch the email the game is sending and takes over the technical side of the sending process. Allowing the email to be sent through modern SMTP servers.

Superb, reliable, easy to get working if you bother to read the manual :p

Great stuff!
