What is the envelope in the game?

This little envelope which can be found to the left of your XP (progress) bar is the internal mailing system on Farm Town.

It lets you read messages that others have sent you. You can reply to these messages by opening the message and clicking Reply

Why is there this function on my farm?
 
Why not?

In fact, internal messaging lets you communicate with farmers who are not online. You can visit their farms and leave a message by using the "Send Message" option on the neighbour bar or from your "buddy list". This is how you can send a message to people rather than using the reply option detailed above.

You can simply click on an avatar and select "Send Message" from the menu that appears.

How do I keep messages?
 
All in all, you can have 40 messages in your inbox.

You can not save the messages directly to your inbox. If you want to make reference to certain messages in future why not make a screenshot or transcribe them to a word document.

Where are my sent messages?
 
In the person's inbox to whom you have sent!

In fact, you can not keep a copy of your sent messages.

How do I know if I have a new message?

On the envelope you can sometimes see a red dot with a white number inside. This number indicates that you have a certain corresponding amount of unread messages. (Click the envelope to view the messages)

How do I send messages?
 
  1. By visiting the farm of one of your friends and clicking on the message icon (above the neighbours bar).
  2. Using the same icon in your "buddy list".
  3. By clicking in the neighbour bar and selecting "Send Message".
  4. By clicking on an avatar and choosing "Send Message" from the pop-up menu.

What is the little green man and red icons at the bottom of messages?
 
http://r1.slashkey.com/images/gamegu.../green man.PNG The Green Man

In the bottom right hand corner of messages you receive you'll find that there is a little green man.

If you click it, it will take you to the farm of the person who sent you the message.

http://r1.slashkey.com/images/gamegu...ing/ignore.PNG Ignore user icon

You click this icon if you wish to stop the sender from sending you any more messages. This will send them to your blocked users list.

http://r1.slashkey.com/images/gamegu...ing/report.PNG Report user icon

If you are being sent abusive or offensive messages you open the offending message and click on this icon. This will send a report to slashkey and add the user to your blocked users list. You will no longer see or hear from them in the game.

If a user has been reported enough times over the past few months they will be penalised by not been able to send offline messages or chat messages to others for a period of time, the more times a user have been reported the longer they will be banned.

NOTE: Reporting users for no reason will get the reporting user banned from the game.

You can also use the ignore/report icons for the chat box wherever you are. The buttons are located to the left of the chat box.

To unblock someone, you click on the "Account" tab at the top of your game screen, then on "Blocked Users" where you will see their first name and to the right a button to click "Unblock User".

Why are some of my neighbours not receiving my messages?
 
They may have accidentally ignored you in-game which would prevent this.

Ask them to verify that you are not in their list of blocked users. To do this they click on the "Account" tab at the top of the game screen, then on "blocked Users". If you are listed there, your profile pic and name will show and "Unblock User" to the right to unblock you.

Once they have you removed from this list, they again receive the messages you send them.

Why is it that I can not write my messages in full screen mode?
 
Adobe (which develops and distributes Flash support for Farm Town) blocked access to the keyboard in full screen mode for security reasons.

This means it is not possible to chat or send messages in full screen mode.
