You have to check your incoming mail at the mailman NPC, and you can retrieve it. After retrieval it will be in your inventory. There is a new icon in the inventory dedicated to your retrieved mail. Advanced functionality like mail "in transit" and time of delivery is not yet done.

Fixed a number of waypoints to ensure better NPC movements on our maps.
Changed mouse select so that you cannot select in the 3d world if you are speaking with an NPC or if any of the following windows are open: merchant window, exchange/trade window, mail window.

Fixed some emotes animations to have smoother transition with the idle.
