#40 closed enhancement (fixed)

Jump to oldest unread msg on a per folder basis

Release Notes:

changed the "jumping to the first unread and/or most recent message when entering a folder" functionality to be configurable on a per folder basis instead of a being a global option only.

Description (last modified by damato)

Beginning with version 2.3 of YAM, the message list scrolls automatically to the oldest unread message whenever a folder is opened.

While this is a good idea for some folders (like incoming, or any folder where I keep current on all messages), for others it is not. I follow a number of mailing lists in which I read messages only sporadically, and I keep several months of messages online. With such groups, it takes an extra couple of seconds to open the folder because of scanning for read/unread messages, and then I have to manually scroll back to the current messages to see what's new. I don't want to manually mark all messages as read, because it's an extra step and because it is useful for me to know which old messages I've looked at and which I haven't.

Could this process of scanning for the oldest unread message upon opening a folder be made optional on a folder-by-folder basis? That would give us all the best of both worlds.

I totally agree with you! The way the message list behave when you enter it should absolutely be optional. This was one reason why I waited so long upgrading to YAM2.3 ...

Please.. don't force us all to use new "features" by default.. that's the microsoft's way of doing things..not the Amiga way..

This will be solved at the same time of fixing #284 (and #410 ).

You will then just have to set the "View" cycle gadget to whatever you want (eg. "New") for your folders.

(In [7154]) * YAM_FO.c, misc: jumping to the first unread and/or most recent message when entering a folder is now a per folder option instead of a global option. This closes #40.
