YAM - Yet Another Mailer (#2) - Exiting or restarting YAM… (#55) - Message List

Exiting or restarting YAM…
 solved

Hi, Damato.

I was writing (answering) a message in YAM, but I needed some information from the net and from another account. After surfing for a while, I forgot that I had the "write-in-progress" message window behind other windows, and I restarted YAM to enter the other account: YAM did not warn me about a message being written, so it closed it without asking, and I lost all the work... :¬/

When you try to close the window of a message you are writing, YAM asks you if you want to keep it or to delete it, so I think it should be done when you close or restart YAM as well. Is it possible? BTW, using latest nightly build, dated 16-11-04.

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

PD: I don't know if this is a known problem, since FAQ and Known Problem pages are not accesible, as I have already reported.

    haven't heard of such a request yet. So please have a look at the feature requests section of the YAM homepage and report such a feature if it is not already listed there.

    I will fill a feature request if not already requested, but I would consider it more like a "missing" feature, a feature that should be there as standard but it isn't, instead of a feature "I would like YAM to have".

    Let's see, you hardly will close the window of a message you are writing by accident, it's not possible even if you press Esc key, because you are always asked before about what to do with that message: Discard it, Save it or Cancel closing. But it is possible to lose the message without warning if you restart YAM. Even when you close YAM you are asked with a "Are you sure?" message, but, in both cases, you are implicitely closing the window of the message you are writing too, so you should be explicitely asked what to do with it, in the same way you are asked when you close it on purpose.

    Saluditos,

    On the topic of restarting YAM when you want to switch to another account;

    It seems like YAM has to do a lot of stuff to restart (slow).

    When I start YAM, it doesn't seem possible to choose a default account, even though I'm not using passwords. It would be nice to set a default account on start up instead of always having to choose an account (before another long delay to finish loading).
