Those tips indeed do not cover this (and I have at least two other problems
not covered, which I still need to report to him).

The simple solution: `;$player_class = #90' (from memory though) making all
new players by default a child of Frand's player class, which is a child of
the mail receiving player.

The nicest solution would be to move the mail checking out of #6:confunc and
move it onto :confunc on the mail receiving player. (You'll need to do that
if you want to have players who are not a child of the mail receiving player).
