You've Got Mail Part 2

Last time we interrupted our series on little known bot features to introduce a new feature which ironically can used on vacation; the email at the end of trade. Currently, this is a mandatory feature, meaning that you will receive these emails whether you like it or not. However, this is not going to be permanent as there will be several email options coming to the bot control panel in the near future. For now though, let's discuss what we can do with these emails.

To answer that question, it all depends on what you want to do with these emails. If you have a large bot chain, or simply do not wish to be bothered with the individual trades as they happen, then simply set up a filter to delete the emails as they come in.

Just simply set up a filter which states anything from trades.no-reply@mtgolibrary.com gets deleted. Then you simply do not have to deal with them.

If you want to study the trades as they come in, then set up a filter and instead of deleting the email, simply move the emails to that folder.

All of that is self-explanatory. However, let's say you want Garruk Relentless but do not wish to pay another bot for the card. After all, what's the point of having a bot buys cards for you if it can not get a card for you when you want one? Just set up a filter that states when the bot makes a trade for that card, have it not just filtered to a folder, but to send a copy to your smartphone. That's right, now you do not have to choose between setting all cards as trade-able but losing out on a specific card you want or letting all cards be trade-able and grabbing what you when you want it as you will be notified when it happens.

Next time we'll continue our look at little-known bot features that one can use while on vacation.
