Can you automatically send a message through AutoTroll (or some other utility) to every player in every game (sorta like the game config)?

Something along the lines of:

I could probably incorperate that info into the turn messages, received messages, confirmed messages.... etc... kinda like a tag line.

In answer to your question, yes he can. He can send mass emails to ALL players, or just players in a game, or individuals... plus he can do what he said, put that message as a tag line in his RSTs and Confirmation emails...I do that.

I would suggest doing both, actually. I hardly read the eMail with my RST, but I always read my in game messages. I'm sure there are plenty of people who are exactly the opposite though.

I've already taken care of the general system messages, I need to send something the main cliental of the site now. Just a matter of getting the right words together :)
