    I would really love this plugin but every time I try to use it I get this error when it sends a test message:
    07:24:47 [SEVERE] javax.mail.internet.AddressException: Illegal address in strin
    g ``''

    Anyone know how I fix this? I'm on o2uk

    It looks like you have some quotes in your config file somewhere. It is definitely your syntax. See if you have added `` somewhere in your email address by accident.
  13. Offline


    no, sorry that's not possible. just use email instead

    can you go into further detail of wut you would like the twitter integration to be like?

    I will add boostmobile=<number>@myboostmobile.com in the next update, until then you can add that line to the sms.gateways file yourself

    Try re-adding your number/email if that doesn't work can you send me your save file?
    Make sure you set up an unused email account with this plugin (see video in OP for instructions of how to do so)

    Every single time someone talks on the server, it texts me.. It's getting annoying. Is there a way to disable sending texts when a person chats?
  17. Offline


    Someone on my server keeps getting texted every message, I personally witnessed him set it up, and he just did the /text set blah blah blah command then texted back enable. That's all he did, any help? His provider is at&t if that makes a difference.

    Hey again man, I know that there is a way to text messages to update your facebook page, would this be possible with this plugin? Speak back :D

    If this is possible, could you make a command to update your facebook page?

    Sorry I don't know almost anything about facebook, someone suggested it to me.

    Does this plugin only send e-mails to the phone, or can it send texts for those of us who don't have smart phones?
  25. Offline


    @Smidds the whole point of this plugin is the ability to send texts :) (from an email)
    it can also send emails to emails if you want, but it doesn't have to.
    The only limitation is if your Service Provider allows emails to send to text
  26. Offline


    Ahh.. Then I suppose this plugin isn't for me :(
  27. Offline


    what do you mean? it's pretty handy to have in my opinion. You can see when people log in, when certain blocks are placed, people can message you from in-game. As long as your Service Provider is on the list (you can always ask Codisimus to check a provider if it's not listed) you should be able to use this. You set up a gmail account (best to create a new one solely for this plugin), mess with the settings, and the email then sends you a text when certain events happen. you don't need a smart phone to use it

    Well, I use Sprint, and I also operate on Gmail, but I was mainly hoping to operate a server on-the-go rather than needed to be in front of a computer. But what the heck I'll give the e-mail a shot. However, when I last set up a Minecraft server Gmail account, I was unable to get the server to access it. Help?

    did you have an email.properties file in the TextPlayer folder?
    did it look like this?
    [email protected]
    PasswordEncrypted=        Leave this blank, it will auto generate
    also, the config.properties should look like this by default:
    #Config file for TextPlayer
    #Plugin made by Codisimus
    #Time to wait (in seconds) between checking for new mail
    #If set to true, It will say in the Server Log when a text is sent
    #Supported Economy plugins:
    #BOSEconomy, iConomy (4 or 5), Essentials, None
    #If set to true, Permissions will be overlooked

    @ACStache, is that comment for me, or someone else.?

    And if that is for me, Yes, I have that. I'm just curious why it won't show up in my inbox... or spam... or any of my folders for that matter. :confused:

    it was for you, sorry i didn't tag you on it. The email you use for this won't have anything in it. all it does is 'receive' texts you send to your server, then does whatever the text says (make sure to watch the video in the OP if you haven't) or 'sends' you a text when someone does, say... "/text Smidds message blah blah" or if you are watching when someone signs in/out
