Now I am sure everyone is familiar with this. Those flickr and koinup junkies especially.

The first tip I guess as Dedric mention is multiple addresses. It is as simple separating them with a semi-colon. eg

TaliaTokugawa.*****@post.koinup.com; talia.tokugawa@googlemail.com

 
 
 

 
 
 
First Navigte to your Secondlife directory.

 
 
 

 
 
 
The goto the /skins/default/xui/en-us folder in your Secondlife directory. (Pick which ever language is appropriate for the last bit)
In this folder you are looking for a file called “floater_postcard.xml”, once you find it open it in a text editor.

 
 
 

 
 
 
On lines 8 and 9, you should see <line_editor bottom_delta=”-6″ follows=”left|top” height=”20″ left=”120″ max_length=”254″
name=”to_form” width=”150″ />

 
 
 

 
 
 
Now to add an email address already filled out you need to replace the “/>” on line 9 with “> email@somehost.com ".
You should be left with something like what is in the red box. Please check my site if you wish to copy/paste it.

 
 
 

 
 
 
If you are currently in Secondlife you will need to restart for this to take effect.
Enjoy ^.^

Well after the recent blog post I did on my Jira posts, Dedric Mauric pointed out about editing the xml to achieve what I was wanting with the Email addresses on the snapshot menu. Mainly that would be a) default to your sign-up address and b) multiple entries.

The Jira post for this is VWR-12822. As you can see Dedric points out that…

Talia, I’ve been doing this myself for a few years. In the email address, type in multiple addresses separated by a semicolon. In fact, I even modified my skin XUI files (floater_postcard.xml) to automatically populate this for me since I always post to the same addresses - pics@slbuzz.com;pics@slpics.com;pics@bloghud.com

Now I get exactly what he is talking about there but from teaching people the accuracy tricks for the client I am guessing that most people don’t get the later part of that.
