First appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)
“That's a new Mailbox SP, isn't it? Wow, neat! Did you get some mail?”
Koops, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

The Mailbox SP is a device Mario has in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It is available from the beginning of the game as one of Mario's Important Things. The Mailbox SP visually resembles a Game Boy Advance SP and is used to receive e-mails. Mario receives e-mails from Jolene, Princess Peach, and various other people throughout the game, mostly from people who Mario has helped in the Trouble Center, as well as the RDM.

Whenever Mario receives e-mails from somebody, the Mailbox SP rings, usually with the theme from Super Mario World that plays during the cutscene where Mario destroys a castle after defeating one of the Koopalings. If Mario receives an e-mail from Peach, it rings with the Title theme from Super Mario World. Whenever an email to Mario comes from an anonymous sender, such as Jolene (who signs her emails as "X") or Grubba (who anonymously sends Mario threatening e-mails), the ringtone is the Ice Land theme from Super Mario Bros. 3.

List of e-mails[edit]


Frankly: E-mail[edit]

This e-mail is received when Mario passes Petalburg after visiting Kroop in Chapter 1. It is received along with the RDM Registration e-mail.

Hello Mario! Working hard? Professor Frankly here, in e-form!
It’s highly likely you’ll receive e-mails like this one while you’re on your journey, so check your mail often!
I actually have nothing more to say than that so I hope all goes well for you, and I look forward to getting more information on those Crystal Stars!

Professor Frankly

Koopley: How's life?[edit]

This e-mail is received on Mario's way to the station in Rogueport after getting the Blimp Ticket between Chapters 2 – 3.

I'm just amazed...I had no idea a machine like this could be used to send messages! Technology! Wow!

I'm doing great, drinking fresh springwater, picking wildflowers, polishing my shell...this town seemed so boring ten years ago, but I see the world differently now. I bet you'll like Petalburg more than you used to once you get back from YOUR adventure, Koops!

So, where are you headed next? I want you to see the wide world, son; it'll be good for you! But don't go TOO far past that front door! Aah ha ha ha!

From, Koopley

As part of Chapter 3's storyline, after Mario reaches rank 10 in the Glitz Pit, Jolene sends a series of anonymous e-mails to Mario, hoping to enlist his help to defeat Grubba. She uses capital and small letters alternatively in words and ends her e-mails with "FrOm X". Her e-mails usually instruct Mario to discover what is happening around the Glitz Pit, which includes Grubba's atrocities. Grubba also sends two threatening e-mails to Mario, warning him not to snoop around. These e-mails have normal lettercases and are not signed.

In the Japanese version of the game, Jolene's e-mails are instead written in katakana alone and ends with "Xヨリ" (which translates to "FROM X").

Koopie Koo: Miss you![edit]

This e-mail is received shortly after Mario leaves Frankly's house after using the third Crystal Star.

Dear Mario and Koops,
I hope you two are doing OK. I have to admit, with Koops gone, I haven't been doing very well.

I get lonely, and I go into Koops's house, and I smell that Koops smell. I guess it's your cologne or whatever, but it makes me so sad...

I'd gotten used to your smell, Koops...Oh! And the thing is, your dad, Koopley, has his own smell, and it's...weird. I think maybe it's the smell of Hooktail's gut. That's...disgusting.

Now I grossed myself out. Oh, and since he's gonna be my dad, too, someday, I'd better get used to that smell, huh? ...Oh! What am I writing? I'm so embarrassed...but I'm sending this anyway! Hee hee hee!

Love, Koopie Koo

Petuni: Yoo hoo![edit]

This e-mail is received when Mario heads for the harbor in Rogueport after showing the Old Letter to Admiral Bobbery.

Hi, Mario!
How are you? I'm, uh...good. No, VERY good! No!!! GREAT!!!

Lots of stuff has changed here. Oh, but not the elder being mad at my brother. That's still the same.

I do wish you'd come back to play sometime. Are you really busy? Are you going someplace far away? Like, a place nobody's ever been? Wow! That's be FUN! I'm jealous!

Well, if you ever have time to come back here, come play with me, OK? You have to PROMISE!

From, Petuni

Boo: Mail?[edit]

This e-mail is received after Mario gets the Train Ticket and heads for the station in Rogueport.

Are you Mario? Did this e-mail...did you get this e-mail? Look, technology freaks me out, so if you're not Mario, please destroy this e-mail, OK?

But if you are, thanks for saving my captured friends. I figured I'd share a hot tip with you as thanks, so here it is: there's still lots of treasures in Creepy Steeple!

Of course, knowing you, you've probably already found it all...ugh...I'm so useless...

Well, enjoy your not-so-useless adventure.

Keep it real, King K

Pa-Patch: Oy, you![edit]

This e-mail is received on day 3 of the Excess Express when Mario leaves his room. In versions outside of Japan, it is received to the right of Mario's room. In the Japanese version, it is received in the dining car.

So, you off on another adventure? I think that suits you best. Give them 'ooligans what for an' save your princess!

The Real Zip Toad: ![edit]

What's up, super-sleuth! I heard you uncovered my impostor! You're the best, man, seriously!

See, when you get to be as big a star as Zip Toad, these sorts of things happen all the time. It's the biz.

But, man alive! For a no-name like you to brave danger and find my impostor! Reminds me of a younger, yet less successful, me.

Yeah, so as for me, I'm headed to Toad Town to film my next leading role: The soon-to-be hit film On Golden Toad 2. It'll be huge.

I hear you're on an adventure or something, so I'll leave you with a line from my last flick, The Toad Warrior: "You're cool, baby...but I'm cooler!"

Best of luck, kid!

I bet you're wondering how an ethereal being like myself can type an e-mail...well, I actually possessed the train conductor to do it! Ooo hoo hoo hoo hoo! Don't worry, though! He's doing just fine!

I think maybe I'll do my new diary like this...E-mail's convenient, you know? And leaving a record of my afterlife is cool, in a spiritual sense, I mean...

So...good luck with your quest. It's not yet time for you to come over to my side. But whenever you do, I'll welcome you. Ooo hoo hoo hoo hoo! Farewell!

This issue is received on Mario's way to The Great Tree after Flurrie joins his party in Chapter 2.

RDM Premiere Issue


Bringing you all the up-to-the-moment news as it happens! We have details of yet another incident at the parlor in west Rogueport. Outraged by the high Pianta prices, Goomfrey (age 30) is suspected of violently shaking the Pianta Changer (age 5), causing the Pianta Changer's alarm to sound, which led to the Pianta Changer ceasing to function for a brief period. The parlor was forced to close down temporarily. The victim was quoted as saying: "I am a machine. No matter how hard I am shook, I feel no pain. End Interview."


Get all the hottest shopping news about all the hottest shopping spots in the world! If Petalburg's your destination, you can't miss the shop that's been the talk of the town for the last 20 years: Niff T.'s shop!

RDM Issue 2
Old Toad Settles Inn!

It's come to light that after settling into life at our inn, Toadsworth (age 60) has been often been spotted in the company of Zess T. (age 55). The notoriously finicky Zess T. surprised all when she was heard saying "What's wrong with spending time with my little Toadle-toes?" The possibilities such a comment opens has our eyes and ears glued to the situation!


Our focus of attention this week? Pungent's Great Tree Shop!

Pungent's easygoing management philosophy is: "Money and girls are fickle, so easy come, easy go, y'know?" He fully understands why his shop isn't busier, too: "We're well hidden, but like any good treasure, we're worth lookin' for!" He even has a special offer for RDM readers: "For the next 15 minutes, I'll give you double shop points!"


Today's Yummy Recipe: Spicy Soup!
Steep a Fire Flower in hot water and...Presto! You're done! The perfect first meal for kids to cook!


We've been working all night to bring you this edition of RDM. Look forward to more hot, hot news in Issue 3, coming soon!

RDM Issue 3[edit]

This issue is received when Mario leaves the Twilight Shop after the curse.

RDM Issue 3
Noon, Today

The Excess Express ran late for the first time in ten years today as a suspicious incident activated station security measures. Area youth and huge train enthusiast Laki (age 18) was found taking pictures in an employee-only area near the Express and was gang-tackled by local samaritans. "I understand how much people are into trains, but we've got safety and security measures to uphold!" blustered the train engineer. The youth was released with just a warning...this time.


This week we highlight Glitzville Sales Stall!

Though they've never attracted as many customers as the nearby Hot Dog Stand, the proprietor is certain that any day now, people will in fact notice that his shop exists! Early on in our interview, the owner of the nearby Hot Dog Stand cornered our reporter and had this to say: "Who needs Sales Stall! My Hot Dog gives you all you want! Only 10 coins now!" A minor scuffle broke out shortly thereafter, but we're happy to report that no one was seriously injured. Apparently everyone in Glitzville knows how to roll with a punch...


Hey there, rookies! Flex your bendy straws, because today's recipe is for Fresh Juice! Just blend Honey Syrup until you reach a nice, frothy texture and enjoy! Try one in the morning to start your day off right!


We're just getting started, people! Wait until you see the glorious next issue!

This issue is received when Mario crosses Rogueport Square after clearing Chapter 5.

RDM Issue 4
Dusk, Today

Goomez (age 40), known for napping in the flowers in the west side park, was found eating flowers and given a stern warning by authorities. Asked for comment, Goomez stated, "Well, I just really, really love flowers, and I was hanging out, and before I knew it, they were in my mouth...I'm so ashamed." Citizens of Rogueport responded with disbelief and grudging support for the strengthening of flower-conservation efforts.


This time, we introduce the Twilight Shop!

Watching the husband and wife proprietors of this shop at work is a heartwarming sight, but don't get on the hubby's bad side! "Don't you go smiling at MY wife!" says the jovially jealous shopkeeper. "I'm hers for life, and your fancy big-city teeth aren't gonna change that!" Well, who could doubt their eternal love? Surely not this reporter. We pressed the shopkeeper for further comment, but regret that his words are unprintable here...But we did learn from the little missus that there will be a double-point sale for all RDM readers! Just show her this screen in the next 15 minutes to double your points on any purchase!


All right, my little rookies, we're on to an intermediate-level recipe today! The dish is a Healthy Salad...Just slice up a Turtley Leaf and a Horsetail, mix them together, and you're done! Great for dieters!


That's all for today! But check your mailbox soon for another exciting issue!

RDM Issue 5

Local mystic Merluvlee (age 25) was taken to the hospital today, followed quickly by hordes of concerned fans. Luckily, according to a spokesperson for the hospital, Merluvlee suffered from nothing more than a severe case of indigestion caused by a wild binge on eight Shroom Steaks. The divine diviner exclaimed that her "aura was brimming with the power of steak," but this reporter can't help but wonder why she failed to predict the gastrointestinal adventure in the first place...


This time, let's head to Keelhaul Galleria!

We are proud to toast the entrepreneurial spirit shown by the managerial team who brought free commerce to this deserted island! "I really wanted to do something that had never been done," gushed the unsinkable proprietor and former fight fan. "So call me 'The Invincible Shopmaster' from now on. I'm 100% serious. Print that." We wish him all the success that he can grab with two hands and wrestle to the mat!


Listen up, rookies, because here's another intermediate-level recipe! Today's dish is the single-serving Peach Tart! Take a Peachy Peach, add Cake Mix, stir, and bake! Try that at teatime, rookies...


Thanks for reading the best rag in the land! See you next issue!

RDM Issue 6

An unknown businessman (age 30) was taken into custody today by port authorities as he tried to board the blimp carrying large amounts of a volatile red liquid. After a few tense moments, authorities identified the liquid as a spicy condiment, and the businessman was subsequently released. Our RDM reporters were mystified by the following unsolicited comment: "Buy our new Hot Sauce, folks!"


This week, we have the pleasure of introducing the fabulously luxurious shop on the Excess Express, the Sales Stall!

This unique boutique on the exclusive train of the independently wealthy just reeks of money, but perhaps the idyllic landscapes rushing past will loosen your purse strings! Says the impeccably dressed manager of sales: "Come one, come all, be you rich or not at all, to our lovely Sales Stall!" He then announced a double-point sale for all RDM readers! Just show him this screen in the next 15 minutes to double your points on any purchase!


This is it, rookies! You've finally made it to the big leagues! Today's recipe is an advanced-level one. Today, we'll be making Ink Pasta. Just boil Fresh Pasta until perfectly al dente and mix lightly with Inky Sauce. Perfecto! Get ready for gourmet chow tonight!

RDM Issue 7
Special Final Issue

In a shocking series of event today, local authorities report that Zess T. (age 55) delivered a left hook to the jaw of gadabout Flavio (age 25) late this very afternoon. Our investigation has revealed that the cause of the feisty fisticuffs may have been Zess T.'s anger that a shipment of gourmet ingredients spoiled on the dock because Flavio had held up the dock crew with a marathon two-day tale of high-seas adventure. While Flavio is recovering from temporary memory loss, Zess T. has already been approached by a Glitz Pit talent scout, Don Goombatti. "I think the kid's got spunk. We'll take the world by storm!" said Goombatti.


This week we have an explosive exclusive on the shop in Fahr Outpost, Northwinds Mart!

It's so cold there that all of the merchandise is frozen to the counter...Just kidding! The smiling shop manager showed us a fascinating variety of good as the sweet-faced little miss explained, "It's cold out, but I do best to explode inside shop to warm place up, da? So come on it! This place is big, too, folks, so we haven't even seen all of it yet! Come on down and see it for yourself!


This is the final installment of Cooking for Rookies! Just to make sure we leave you with a smile on your face, our last recipe will be for Couple's Cake! Just simmer Spicy Soup for a few minutes, then drop in a Snow Bunny...and presto! Before your very eyes, the mixture will congeal and take the form of a cake! Eat it with someone you love!


This is it, dear readers! The final issue! We here at the RDM office have enjoyed every minute of our hard work to bring you the best news and features! May we meet again...perhaps sooner than you think! (Wink, wink...)

"Surprise!" section[edit]

In the Japanese, French, German, Italian and Spanish versions of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the final e-mail features an additional "hidden" section if the player scroll downs for an extended period of timeMedia:ResultRDMS.png. This portion was removed from the English version, despite that the statement alluding to its existence remains. Translated from Japanese:

You’ve found it!

The not-quite-over-yet
RDM Special Secret Corner!!


We’ve just received breaking info on Chuck Quizmo (age 44)! While he didn't get to appear this time... it’s been confirmed that he had in fact been working on a new quiz show titled "Who’s the Honest One!?"!! However, it appears that the show spent so long in the planning stages, it never actually came to fruition in the end. We’ll be waiting eagerly for whatever Quizmo comes up with next!


If you cook a Point Swap with another item, you’ll be able to switch that item’s effect. If you try it with a lousy item... Hehe! You’ll have to see for yourself!

And now, this is definitely goodbye! Thank you for sticking with us ‘til the very end!

Will we meet again? ...Maybe!

In the French translation, Vanna T. is mentioned instead of Chuck Quizmo.

Princess Peach's E-mails[edit]

Peach: I'm OK[edit]

This e-mail is received in Petal Meadows after Chapter 1 is cleared.

My Dearest Mario,
I send this letter in the hope that it reaches you safely. I am being held against my will in some strange place. Though I do not know where I am, I remain unharmed and in relative comfort. Those who have captured me seem to be after the map I sent you earlier. They may be hoping to use it to find objects called "Crystal Stars". I do not know what they are planning, but I have a feeling it is not anything positive. Mario, please collect these Crystal Stars before they do. You must! They are already aware that you have the map, so please be very careful. And please...don't worry about me.
-Princess Peach-

Peach: Be Careful![edit]

This e-mail is received in Boggly Woods after Chapter 2 is cleared.

Dear Mario,
I'm sure you're very concerned about me...but please know I'm fine! I'm actually more worried about you. The fiends who kidnapped me are searching desperately for the Crystal Stars. I'll try to learn what I can about them. I'll e-mail you again if I uncover anything. OK? You must know I miss you. Lately I've dreamt about our days back in the castle. I hope we'll spend carefree days there again soon.
-Princess Peach-

Peach: Fiendish plan![edit]

This e-mail is received in west Rogueport after Chapter 3 is cleared.

Dearest Mario,
I have uncovered something terrible. These things...the X-Nauts...they're planning to take control of the world! It's to that end that they're searching for the Crystal Stars. I still don't know what the Crystal Stars do, but you must try to get them all...I will gather what information I can...
-Princess Peach-

Peach: Evil treasure![edit]

This e-mail is received when Mario leaves the pipe room that leads to Twilight Town after clearing Chapter 4.

My dear Mario,
I have finally learned what the legendary treasure is. It is the spirit of a demon! The X-Nauts plan to revive this thousand-year-old monster and use its power to take over the world! They're collecting the Crystal Stars so they can open the Thousand-Year-Door...they'll find this demon's spirit...but the only thing that can keep it locked away is the Crystal Stars themselves! You must not let them get the Crystal Stars! Please, must put a stop to their horrible plans!
-Princess Peach-

Peach: Good News...[edit]

This e-mail is received when Mario returns to Rogueport after clearing Chapter 5.

Dearest Mario,
I have good news! I don't know where I'm being held, but there's an odd computer called TEC here. By cooperating with this TEC, I've managed to obtain some of these fiends' data. TEC is currently analyzing it...and strange as it may sound, I trust him. Once his analysis is done, I should be able to provide you with details of their plans. I'll e-mail you again once I learn more. Be good, OK?

Peach: My location...[edit]

This e-mail is received at the Rogueport train station on Mario's way back to Rogueport after Chapter 6 is cleared.

I now know where I'm being held. I'm on the moon. Yes, the moon that floats out in space. And I've learned something even more horrifying. In order to resurrect the monster's spirit, they need my...

Trouble Center Users' E-mails[edit]

Koopook: Hide/Seek[edit]

What's up, Koops? After you found me Koops, I found a nice hiding nook at a place called Goomstar Temple. It's so cold my shell is frosty, but it's a great place for hiding.

Obviously, I don't want anyone to find me, but... The thing is, I DO want people to see how good I am at hiding, You see the bind I'm in?

Anyway, spread the word! Come find the wandering Hide-n-Seek Koopa! See ya later... Or not!

Yours, Koopook

Pine T. Jr.: Dad's Job[edit]

Hey, you know what? My daddy found a new job! He takes care of Bubu in Toad Town. He's all recharged now!

I'm still not good at studying, but I'm trying so I can help my daddy!

I don't know what I can do to help Daddy yet, but I'm gonna study lots until I figure something out, OK? Well, see ya!

From, Pine T.

Eve: Thank You[edit]

How are you, Mario? This is Eve from Twilight Town. Remember me?

After a lot of soul-searching, I've found that I'm truly happy.

I may not be able to forget the hard times, or even completely remember then, but I've been thinking things over and I believe that my sad past paves the way to my current happiness. Is that deep?

Anyway, I can't think about that stuff all the time. The kids play all day... then they get hungry and cry and scream, so I'm pretty busy all day, every day.

The kids would love to see you again, so please drop by next time you're in the area!

Fondly yours, Eve

Jolene: Doing well?[edit]

Or rather, the Great Gonzales...I realized that I never thanked you for handling my request, so I decided to e-mail you.

I never thought for a moment that you, a former champion, would end up taking care of the wrestling trunks for me.

After you left here, know what Mush said to me? He said, "There are some things that can only be understood by fighting." He's an odd one, Mush. He's actually training now...yes, he's planning a comeback!

You should come by the Glitz Pit if you get some time. You're just the type of star the fans crave, you know?

Take care, Jolene

Bub-ulber: SPIIIIIIICY![edit]

Yes, hello to you.
I am Bub-ulber.

I have been unable to forget the savory Hot Dog taste buds are sweating in anticipation of your next spicy visit.

By the way: have you heard? Dried Bouquets are not flowers that have withered and gone dry. They are actually flowers that have had the clocks of their lives adjusted to tick just a little slower than normal flowers. I hope you will take the time to stop and smell these delicate flowers.

In fact, I would like you to come visit me again with the above-mentioned item. Yours in spiciness.


Gob: Throat-bomb![edit]

.................? ...............................! this right? DO I just type or what?...yeah, OK.

So...hey! I was so happy you got me that Honey Candy! My voice came back and everything, but maybe I was a little too jolly...I started shouting and now I lost my voice again. I'm resting now.

So, yeah, there may not be much here in Fahr Outpost, but at least we got snow! Yeah! We have snowbomb fights here! We put tiny Bob-ombs inside our snowballs so that they explode when they hit! It's super dangerous, which makes it super cool! Unfortunately, it also makes it super illegal! Which is pretty lame...but come visit anyway!

Later! Gob


This e-mail is sent from Goombella to Mario at the end of the game, but it is not found in the Mailbox SP if it is checked later. Mario shares this e-mail with Luigi.

Dear Mario,

What's up? Goombella here! I'm still here working with Professor Frankly. We beat the Shadow Queen, but there's tons of Rogueport lore we still don't get... So, my research with the professor goes on and on.

With the info I gathered with you, we have lots of great leads now, though! Mario... Like I always said, every myth contains a kernel of truth. Speaking of which, know what was in the chest that the professor recovered? You're totally not gonna believe me when I tell you. It's... A secret! Ha ha ha ha ha! But I'll tell you next time I see you.

As part of my research, I did go back to many of the places we visited... And I saw everyone we traveled with, too!

Koops is living peacefully in Petalburg with his dad and Koopie Koo. And, Mario... Guess what Koops wants to do now! He wants to become mayor of Petalburg and live there in peace! Can you imagine? Still, it might just be perfect for him, come to think of it. He's so much more of an adult now than when you left Rogueport! ...Still, I think Koopie Koo pretty much has him wrapped around her little finger!

Flurrie's back on stage in a big way, and the crowds are totally ecstatic. And, the play she's doing right now is the story of our adventure! Yeah! It's called "Paper Mario"! I saw it twice! It was totally the best play ever! And somehow, Doopliss had joined the troupe as an actor! Who saw that coming? His transformation skills are serving him well, but it still kind of creeps me out...

Oh, and little Yoshi? Yeah, he's fighting solo in the Glitz Pit! He says he's getting pretty close to a title match, even! Isn't that just ADORABLE? Oh, yeah, he's calling himself "The Great Gonzales Jr." in the ring, by the way. It's sorta silly, but kinda cute, too, don'tcha think? Oh, and... Wait, I have to get this exactly right or he'll get like, SO mad at me... He, uh, said that he could "totally take you in the ring now, so bring it!" I guess he doesn't change... Isn't that too cute?

Vivian's gone back to hang out with her sisters. Family is important, after all... Now that the Shadow Queen has been defeated, I don't think Beldam's into evil. Oh, and Beldam also promised me she would never be mean to Vivian ever again. Yup, I think the three sirens are going to live peacefully from now on... But you should totally go visit her sometime.

Bobbery goes out to sea every day now with Cortez... I think his soul has healed. I ran into him on Keelhaul Key by accident the other day, which was nice. He was so happy, I thought he was going to blow up on me for a second there. You know... I bet Scarlette is looking down on him and smiling right now. Oh, and I almost forgot... Everyone on Keelhaul Key is well, and they say hello.

Ms. Mowz is still running the badge shop in Rogueport, so she's happy. She comes over to Frankly's sometimes to visit... But, as usual, as soon as she sets foot outside the shop, she turns into a badge-ninja. She said just the other day that she had found some super-rare badge, actually. That's our globe-trotting, mystery-making, flirting, little badge thief, huh?

Oh, yeah... In my travels, I heard a rumor that Lord Crump and Grodus were both still alive. I guess that makes them pretty tenacious baddies, doesn't it, Mario? But they've mellowed a lot, just like Beldam has, and I don't expect more trouble. Plus, I hear Grodus is just a head, which really cuts down on mischief-making.

Speaking of miracle survivals... Guess whose favorite calculator is still computing? He says he really wants to see you and Peach again!

Well, I'm totally rambling at this point, so I guess I'd better wrap it up... I just wanna say, even though things got tough, I'm grateful for our time together. And... There is one thing that kind of weighed on me and I never got to express to you. See, I... Well... Maybe that's best kept a secret.

So, please say hi to Peach for me, OK? 'Til we meet again!

Your friend, Goombella.

The paragraph about Ms. Mowz appears if she joined Mario's party at that time, and the Yoshi's name the player gave him is used.
