Does anybody know if there's a way to make message board messages?
Like the letter you get from nintendo and other games, with there own style?

Thanks

The message style, and the additional buttons (like "install", "update", "play") are triggered by using email headers.
note that encoding is UTF16.

some of the possible headers (may be incomplete) :

X-Wii-AltName: AE4AaQBuAHQAZQBuAGQAbw== // note this is Nintendo encoded in base 64
X-Wii-AppId:
X-Wii-Cmd:
X-Wii-DWCId:
X-Wii-Download-Interval:
X-Wii-Download-Span:
X-Wii-IconNew:
X-Wii-Id:
X-Wii-MB-Delay:
X-Wii-MB-NoReply: 1
X-Wii-MB-RegDate:
X-Wii-Mail-Check-Span:
X-Wii-Tag:
X-WiiFace:
X-Wii-MB-UpdateSW: 1

When I tried (few weeks after wii launch date), it didn't work. Maybe I did it wrong.

I don't know how to create custom messages (for examples, the "leaf" layout from Animal crossing).


I don't think there's any homebrew yet to create custom messages directly to the Wii message board.

Thank you for the info.
I want to use my own letters to mail a newsletter to all my group of friends.
I'm using a normal mail server ( you can send mail to wii from an email client )
Everybody registers my adress, I accept them, and they are open to my news letters.
This works fine. I just want to make my own letters to make it look more professional.
Right now I'm adding High quality jpegs.

Is this like the postcards you get on Bonsai Barber? I've never used the mail service, so I don't know if they're a different kind of notification.
