Due to MiceMail's design, messages are not instantly received. It can take a full minute or more from when a message is sent to you to when it it is received by you. Overhead caused by the standard e-mail protocols "POP3" and "SMTP" may add slightly to this time. In addition, the administrator may have lengthened this delay for performance reasons. If you are sure you have waited long enough and the message was indeed sent, you should contact the administrator.
I know you can enable your profile to allow emails to your screen name, but does this work outside of MC? Can I use [email protected] as an email address now?
MiceMail is a MiceChat Gold feature, and works exactly like regular Email. You can send and receive mail from anyone else in the world who has an Email address. The convenience is that you will have an easy link to your mail in the welcome box at the top of the site, just to the right of PMs.
Please follow the instructions to set up your MiceMail and you are all set.
