Description (last modified by damato)

Currently there is no way to specify the file location for the .addressbook file. It default to .YAM (or If I read the code correctly the "MailDir".

If it is placed in the .config file, users can have separate address books.

In my case, I want to store the data separate from the program files. The adress book defaults in YAM: and I have two separate user directories for the configuration files.

I noticed this on Yam 2.3p1. Specifically for me I set up Multiple users with config files in different directories inside the YAM directory-


For User2, YAM searches by default for the address book in YAM:User2/ The settings are all unchecked.

But for User1 the settings are Supervisor=yes, Global address=yes (not-editable), Use Global Glossary=yes (not editable), and it searches for the address book file in the main YAM directory by default.

It may be solvable by editing the user config?
