    Is there any way to use the mail functionality of the Wii on Wiiu's vWii?

    Hello.:)

    NO.:)

    The following RiiConnect24 services are not working on the vWii:

    • Wii Mail (most functionality does not exist on vWii)
      • This includes sending/receiving mail to/from friends. You can only receive global broadcast mail and posts from RSSMii feeds (if set up).

    Thank you.:)

    not that I know of. why do you want that to work on the vwii? the vwii is a modified version of 4.3 on the wii. a lot of things don't work like system settings and mail as you know.

    so because its a modified version 4.3 could you just add back the features?

    Not only is the wii menu hard to replace (being some weird wii/wiiu hybrid verified when starting vwii), but it would miss most of the point because of differences in connected standby that doesn't include wii-mode KD (wiiconnect24) processing - which, I am not sure, may even be disabled in IOS

    wiiconnect24 on the wii itself causes the wii to get very hot in standby. I turned mine off.

    Hello.:)

    The point is:

    It is maybe a "missing" Software only (like the "castrated" System Menu on the Wii Mini) but nobody including the RiiConnect Team cares about the vWii Mode.

    Also of the limited cIOS "Options" on the vWii Mode (like no Hermes).
    Maybe one Day some ambitious Programmer will have a Solution.....but not today.:)

    Thank you.:)
