    22== About YAM == 
    3 Back in 1995, [http://www.mbeck.ch/ Marcel Beck] started the initial development of YAM and released the first  version to public Amiga users. While  this first version (v1) was still  very limited in its features the successor version (v2) introduced much  more advanced features so that the 2.2 version was then also rated as  the best Email client for Amiga computers back in 1998. This was  probably also because YAM has been a freeware product right from the  start, allowing Amiga users to travel into the great world of emails  with a product they not have to spent money on. 
     3YAM (Yet Another Mailer) is a MIME-compliant open-source Internet email client written for AmigaOS-based computer systems that lets you send and receive electronic mail over the Internet and maintain archives of messages in your computer.

    5 Then in late 2000  Marcel left the Amiga development but luckily decided to release the  source code of YAM under the [http://www.yam.ch/35.html GPL  open source license]. This allowed to find a group of developers  working on the further development of this unique email client for Amiga  computers. Already one year later the open-source developer crew  released the 2.3 version showing the Amiga community that the  development of YAM hasn't stopped at all.

    7 And now, after even more  years the development of YAM has advanced some more and is now aiming  to bring up YAM to a level where it is compareable to other mail clients  like Thunderbird. Of course we still have a long way to go, but with  the help of you and the Amiga community we can make this vision reality.
