    34= Configuration = 
    45YAM has a huge number of options, which can be set up in the configuration window.  The program options are divided into sheets which can be selected by clicking on the corresponding word in the left part of the configuration window. There are also three menu items available. 
    56 
     7[[=#FixFirstSteps]] 
    68== First Steps == 
    79This sheet contains some essential information needed for YAM to work. 
    810 
    9 === Minimal configuration === 
    10 `Full Name` 
     11'''''Minimal configuration''''' 
     12 
     13`Real Name` 
    1114  Your real name and surname.  Please take care that this field is filled in correctly.  DO NOT use quotation marks in your name. 
    1215 
     
    1821  Example: jdoe@example.com 
    1922 
    20 `Mail server` 
     23`Server name` 
    2124  The Internet address (hostname or IP) of your system's mail server.  This server, which normally is a computer of your ISP (Internet Service Provider), must be capable of working with the POP3/SMTP protocol. 
    2225 
     
    3336  Example: nguz56 
    3437 
    35 === Time zone === 
     38[[=#FixTimezone]] 
     39'''''System settings''''' 
     40 
     41`Charset` 
     42 
    3643`Timezone` 
    3744  The time and date displayed by YAM in the message list is always converted to your local time.  This guarantees correct sorting of messages from all over the world sent out from different time zones.  The time zone is part of the message's date and specifies the difference between local time and Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 
     
    4148  Normally YAM will get the time zone from your Locale settings, thus this selector will be ghosted. 
    4249 
    43 `Add adjustment for daylight saving time` 
    44   This option is to be activated during daylight saving time. By doing so, one hour will be added to the time zone value. YAM automatically changes to/from daylight saving time if the operating system support DST switching (e.g. AmigaOS4) or if a AutoDST tool like SetDST, FACTS or SummertimeGuard is installed. This is indicated by ghosting this checkbox.

     50----- 
    4851== TCP/IP == 
    4952Here you can enter the information needed to actually send email, as well as define additional POP3 accounts. 
     53 
     54[[=#FixPOP3]] 
     55=== Receive mail (POP3) === 
     56Apart from the primary POP3 server already defined in the First steps section, you can set up an unlimited number of POP3 servers here; the names appear in the list on the left and clicking on a name brings up the relevant details 
     57on the right. Note that these accounts can be for the same user on a different server, or a different user on the same server. Either way, you can check for new mail with a single mouse click. Click on [New] to insert the data required for a new e-mail account. With [Delete] you can delete accounts. 
     58 
     59`Active` 
     60  Switch this option on to have the selected POP3 account checked for new mail whenever you use the Get new mail button in the toolbar, or the equivalent item in the "Folder" menu.  If you don't want this email account to be checked automatically, switch this option off and use the menu item Folder/Check single account from the main window instead. 
     61 
     62  Example: Yes 
     63 
     64`Description` 
     65 
     66`Server` 
     67  The Internet address of the system you're sending your mail to. This server, which usually is a computer of your ISP (Internet Service Provider), must be capable of processing the POP3 protocol. 
     68 
     69  Example: pop.example.com 
     70 
     71`Port` 
     72 
     73  The port number of the POP3 service. The standard port is 110 for plain POP3. In case of using SSL/TLS connections this port may also be 995. 
     74 
     75  Example: 110 
     76 
     77`Test connection settings` 
     78 
     79'''''Security and Authentification''''' 
     80 
     81`Connection Security` 
     82  Activate this option (SSL/TLS) to use SSL based encryption under the TLS protocol as described in RFC 2595.  This adds extra security to prevent the typical eavesdropping and hijacking attacks which POP is commonly subject to, and will use port 995 instead of the usual 110. 
     83  The option STARTTLS will force the use of the POP3 STARTTLS  extension, adding another layer of security to the communication, using again port 110. 
     84  If your POP3 server doesn't support any of this, you will receive an error message when checking for new mail.  Also, AmiSSL is required. 
     85 
     86`Authentification` 
     87  Normally the Username and the password are transmitted as plain text when connecting to a POP3 server.  Under certain circumstances, this could be a security risk, and for this reason modern POP3 servers support the APOP authentication, which transmits the username and password encrypted with a key which is delivered by the server.  If your POP3 server does not support APOP you'll receive an error message when checking for new mail; in that case, switch this option off. Also note, that if your POP3 server supports TLS/SSL this should be preferred as it also transmits the email content encrypted rather than in plain text. 
     88 
     89`User name` 
     90  The user name for authentication against the specified POP server.. In most cases this will be identical to the username in your e-mail address.  However, there are exceptions, so check the instructions from your ISP (YAM then constructs the full account name in the form <Username>@<server>). 
     91 
     92  Example: jdoe 
     93 
     94`Password` 
     95  The password which has to be sent to the mail server at login time. You can leave this field empty for security reasons -- if you do, the password will be asked to you whenever you send new mails. Also, remember the password is case sensitive. 
     96 
     97  Example: nguz56 
     98 
     99'''''Message handling''''' 
     100 
     101`Pre-selection` 
     102  After establishing a link with the POP3 server, a  preselection window may open showing a list of all new mail in the POP3 mailbox.  This allows you to decide whether to download, delete or leave a message on the server, according to its size, topic or sender. For pre-selection to work properly, the server must support the TOP command which most of them do. 
     103 
     104  //never//: pre-selection is deactivated\\ 
     105  //large messages//: only messages bigger than a size defined by you will be displayed in pre-selection\\ 
     106  //always//: every message will be displayed in pre-selection\\ 
     107  //always, only sizes//: all messages will be displayed but only their sizes will be shown.  The advantage of this method is that it is pretty fast. 
     108 
     109  Example: always 
     110 
     111`Check for new mail on startup` 
     112 
     113`Check for new mail every <n> minutes` 
     114  Here you can specify a time interval after which YAM will automatically recheck your mail server for new mail.  To deactivate this option, simply select zero. 
     115 
     116  Example: 15 minutes 
     117 
     118`Download messages larger than <n> KB` 
     119  If pre-selection is activated, messages which exceed the size given here will be highlighted.  This way you can avoid downloading messages with huge attachments.  The size is given in kilobytes. If you don't want to use any limit, just insert '0'. 
     120 
     121  In everyday use, the settings 'pre-selection = large messages' and 'size limit=100 kB' have proved to be advantageous.  With these settings, the pre-selection window will only appear if at least one of the new messages exceeds 100 kilobytes in size.   
     122 
     123  Example: 100 
     124 
     125`Delete mail on server` 
     126  If this option is activated, new mail will be deleted after downloading it from the mail server.  The messages will be deleted only after they have been successfully saved to your computer. If the POP3 account is used by several people, or if you'd like to access your account again later from another computer, this option can be deactivated. 
     127 
     128  Example Yes 
     129 
     130`Apply remote filter` 
     131  Apply all all defined remote filters when downloading from this server. 
     132 
     133'''''Default folders''''' 
     134 
     135`'Incoming' folder` 
     136  Allows to set a different folder where mails will be stored after having received them. 
     137 
     138[[=#FixNewmail]] 
     139'''''Notification for new mails''''' 
     140 
     141`Requester` 
     142  Once YAM has downloaded new mail, it will display a requester showing the number of new and deleted messages. 
     143 
     144  Example: Yes 
     145 
     146`AmigaOS4.1 notification system` 
     147 
     148`Sound` 
     149  Once YAM has downloaded new mail, it will play a sound file.  The datatypes library is used for playing, so the sound file can be of any format (like AIFF or WAVE), as long as you have installed the appropriate datatypes.  Click the small arrow (PLAY symbol) to test the sound. 
     150 
     151  Example: Data:Audio/Newmail.snd 
     152 
     153`Command` 
     154  This is a program to be executed when new mail arrives.  Insert the command as you'd do at a command line interface.  If it is an Arexx script, you have to put the 'RX' command in front of the name of the script. 
     155 
     156  Example: RX PROGDIR:rexx/Newmail.YAM 
    50157 
    51158=== Send mail (SMTP) === 
     
    53160on the right. Note that these accounts can be for the same user on a different server, or a different user on the same server. Either way, you can check for new mail with a single mouse click. Click on [New] to insert the data required for a new e-mail account. With [Delete] you can delete accounts. 
    54161 
     162`Active` 
     163 
     164`Description` 
     165 
    55166`Server` 
    56167  The Internet address of the system you're sending your mail to. This server, which usually is a computer of your ISP (Internet Service Provider), must be capable of processing the SMTP protocol. 
     
    59170 
    60171`Port` 
     172 
    61173  The port number of the SMTP service. The standard port is 25 for plain SMTP. In case of using SSL/TLS connections this port may also be 576 or 456. 
    62174 
    63175  Example: 25 
    64176 
    65 `SMTP server allows 8bit` 
     177`Test connection settings` 
     178 
     179'''''Security and Authentification''''' 
     180 
     181`Connection Security` 
     182  Enable this if your SMTP server supports TLSv1/SSLv3 secure connections. If enabled, YAM will connect via the AmiSSL library with the SMTP server and encrypts every transfer. 
     183 
     184  Example: No 
     185 
     186`Authentification` 
     187  Enable this if you want to use SMTP Authentication, whereby YAM will request your mail server to use an extra authentication layer as documented in RFC 2554. You will need to fill in another couple of UserID/Password fields in this case. If your SMTP server does not support SMTP AUTH, you will receive an error message when trying to send email. Ask your ISP if in doubt.  
     188 
     189  Example: No 
     190 
     191`Username` 
     192  When using SMTP AUTH you can insert the user name for the SMTP authentification here. In most cases this will be identical to the username in your e-mail address.  However, there are exceptions, so check the instructions from your ISP (YAM then constructs the full account name in the form <Username>@<server>). 
     193 
     194  Example: jdoe 
     195 
     196`Password` 
     197  The password which has to be sent to the mail server at login time. You can leave this field empty for security reasons -- if you do, the password will be asked to you whenever you send new mails. Also, remember the password is case sensitive. 
     198 
     199  Example: nguz56 
     200 
     201'''''Options''''' 
     202 
     203`Server allows 8bit characters` 
    66204  Originally only the US-ASCII character set was allowed for use in e-mail, which meant that users were forced to use vowels (e.g., they had to use 'ae' instead of 'ä').  The reason for that was that many servers only processed the first 7 bits and simply cut off the 8th bit, crippling the e-mail while doing so. This problem was solved by introducing the MIME quoted-printable standard, which converts all 'unauthorized' characters to 7 bit before transfer and reconverts them to the original characters on delivery.  Modern mail servers don't have problems with non-US-ASCII characters any more, so messages do not necessarily have to be converted.  If you are absolutely sure that your server supports 8 bit transfers, you can switch this option on and save a few bits when transferring e-mails. The best way to find out if your mail server supports this is to write a message to yourself containing modified vowels and see what happens. 
    67205 
    68206  Example: Yes 
    69207 
    70 `Use SMTP AUTH` 
    71   Enable this if you want to use SMTP Authentication, whereby YAM will request your mail server to use an extra authentication layer as documented in RFC 2554. You will need to fill in another couple of UserID/Password fields in this case. If your SMTP server does not support SMTP AUTH, you will receive an error message when trying to send email. Ask your ISP if in doubt.  
    72  
    73   Example: No 
    74  
    75 `Use SMTP TLSv1/SSLv3` 
    76   Enable this if your SMTP server supports TLSv1/SSLv3 secure connections. If enabled, YAM will connect via the AmiSSL library with the SMTP server and encrypts every transfer. 
    77  
    78   Example: No 
     208'''''Default folders''''' 
     209 
     210`'Sent' folder` 
     211  Allows to set a different folder where mails will be stored after being sent out.

     245`Bcc: address` 
     246 
     247`Reply-To: address` 
     248 
     249  Normally this field should remain empty. The default Reply-To address is your e-mail address.  If you want to use a different address, then (AND ONLY THEN!!) you should insert that address here.  Alternatively, you can use the pop-up button to open the address book window, and then drag an entry from there into this field. 
     250 
     251  Example: jdoe@example.com 
     252 
     253`Extra headers` 
     254 
     255  If for some reason you need to add one or more special extra lines to the headers of your mail, you can insert these header lines here. If you would like to insert several lines, separate them by inserting '\n'. 
     256 
     257  PLEASE DON'T use this feature unless you have enough knowledge of the structure of Internet email.

     304[[=#FixFilters]] 
     305== Filters == 
     306The purpose of a mail filter is to process mail according to criteria defined by the user.  Whenever a mail matches a specified pattern, it can 
     307trigger certain actions. Applications for the use of filters include 
     308 
     309- automatically moving mail from a mailing list to a specified folder 
     310 
     311- automatic processing of incoming inquiries by sending pre-defined 
     312  answers 
     313 
     314- automatic deletion of unwanted spam (advertising by e-mail, a real 
     315  pest nowadays) 
     316 
     317- automatic re-directing of mails to another recipient. 
     318 
     319You can define theoretically an unlimited number of filters. The list on the left shows the names of all the filters defined so far. Click on a name to bring up its details on the right, spread across three sheets -- Options, Comparison and Action. Click on [New] to create a new filter or use [Delete] to delete one. Filters are executed in top-to-bottom order, therefore you should place filters that delete or move messages at the bottom of the list. 
     320 
     321=== General === 
     322`Name` 
     323  The filter's name is merely for recognition and not of any other use. 
     324 
     325`Remote filter` 
     326  With a remote filter, new email can be checked on the POP3 server without being downloaded completely. The POP3 server must support the TOP command to be able to process this kind of filter. 
     327  In contrast to 'normal' filters, only the contents of the e-mail headers can be searched for certain patterns. For obvious reasons, functions like forwarding or moving e-mails cannot be used with remote filters. In addition, if remote filters are activated they might slow down downloading e-mail, but they are handy and powerful if used with care. 
     328 
     329`Apply to new mail` 
     330  Activate this option to have all new mail processed by this filter. Processing will start automatically after receiving new mail. 
     331 
     332`Apply to sent mail` 
     333  Activate this option to have all sent mail processed by this filter. Processing will be initiated automatically after sending mail. 
     334 
     335`Apply on request` 
     336  If this option is activated, the filtering process will be started by clicking on the Filter button in the main window or by choosing 'Filter' from the 'Folder' menu. This way you can also process old messages which do not necessarily have to be in the Incoming folder. 
     337 
     338[[=#FixComparison]] 
     339=== Conditions === 
     340If (all|one or more|only one)... of the following conditions are met: 
     341 
     342`Search in` 
     343  Here you can define what part of the e-mail should be scanned for the search pattern. If you want a field of the message header to be searched, you can choose one from the list which appears when clicking on the cycle gadget, or select 'Other field' and insert the name of the header field into the text field on the right side of the cycle gadget. If 'Message body' is selected, the whole message -except for the headers- will be searched.  Please note that this type of full text search may take quite a long time when big mails are processed (YAM will have to decode mails in MIME format). 
     344 
     345  Example: 'Other field: X-Mailer' 
     346 
     347`Comparison` 
     348  The instruction comprises the comparison operator and the search pattern. 
     349 
     350  YAM supports the following comparison operators: 
     351 
     352  - //=//  the text which is compared must match the search pattern 
     353  - //<//  the text must be "less" than the search pattern 
     354  - //>//  the text must be "greater than" the search pattern 
     355  - //<>// the text must be different from the search pattern 
     356  - //IN// the text must match pattern contained in the file which is specified in the text field to the right side of the comparison cycle gadget.  Instead of a search pattern itself, the name of a file has to be inserted here, containing one or several lines of search patterns. In this way it is possible to create a so-called 'Killfile' containing a list of e-mail addresses. Click on the page icon to edit the file. 
     357 
     358  Note that the comparison operators '<' and '>' work differently according to the type of field.  YAM knows that a message size or date is numeric and sorts these in numerical order, but for fields such as "Subject:", alphanumeric order is used as in a telephone directory, so James < Jim and 12 < 2. 
     359 
     360  The search pattern may contain [[Pattern matching| AmigaDOS wildcards ]] such as ?, #?, (a|b) or [abc]. Please note that the search pattern [YAM]#? will filter all messages beginning with Y, A or M. For filtering mails coming from a mailing list (for example, a mailing list related to YAM), you'd better use the search pattern #?YAM#? or have the filter compare the Reply-To: field with the address of the mailing list. 
     361 
     362  Example: '= YAM 1.3.#?' 
     363 
     364`Address/Name` 
     365  If you make the filter search a header field containing an e-mail address, you can specify here whether the search pattern should be processed on the actual address (e.g. jdoe@example.com) or the author's name (e.g. 'John Doe'). 
     366 
     367`Case sensitive` 
     368  Activate this option if you want the filtering process to distinguish between normal and capital letters. 
     369 
     370`Substring search` 
     371  If the search pattern consists of only a part of the header field which is to be searched through, you must activate this option - YAM will then complete the search pattern with #? internally.

     385  Activate this option to have mail matching the search criteria bounced to another recipient -- for instance, you might use this to automatically resend certain email to your mailbox at work. 
     386 
     387  The new recipient's e-mail address must be inserted into the text field next to the option. 
     388 
     389  Example: jdoe@example.net 
     390 
     391`Forward` 
     392  Activate this option when you want e-mail matching the search criteria to be forwarded to another person.  The new recipient's e-mail address must be inserted into the text field next to the option. 
     393 
     394`Reply` 
     395  If this option is activated, YAM will send an automatic reply to any mail matching the search pattern. Enter the filename containing the auto-answer text into the text field next to this option. 
     396 
     397  Example: PROGDIR:Auto-Texts/Answer1.txt 
     398 
     399`Execute` 
     400  If this option is activated, an external program will be executed whenever an email matches the search criterion. YAM will send the path of the e-mail to the external program as a starting parameter. Insert the command line into the text field next to this option. 
     401 
     402  Please note that if you want an ARexx script to be executed, you will have to explicitely put the 'RX' command first. 
     403 
     404  Example: 'rx PROGDIR:Rexx/Subscribe.rexx' 
     405 
     406`Play sound` 
     407  Activate this option to have a sound played whenever a message matches the search pattern.  The sound file name is to be inserted into the text field next to this option.  YAM uses the datatypes library for playing the sound.  Click the small arrow (PLAY symbol) to test the sound. 
     408 
     409  Example: Data:Audio/Ihatespam.wav 
     410 
     411`Move` 
     412  If you activate this option, YAM will move any email matching the search pattern to another folder. You can select the folder with the pop-up button.

     481 
     482`Headers` 
     483  If 'all' is selected, all the headers will be displayed. Select 'none' if you don't want to see any header. When you switch to 'custom', you can specify yourself which header fields should be visible in the Read window. For specifying the fields you can use any  AmigaDOS pattern. The FROM, TO, DATE and SUBJECT fields are displayed by default. The header layout can also be changed (temporarily) in the Read window itself. 
     484 
     485  Example: '(From|Subject|Date|X-Mailer)' 
     486 
     487`Sender info` 
     488  If a mail's sender is found in YAM's address book, YAM can display additional information in the header part of the Read window. If 'data only' is selected, YAM will show some information such as the name, date of birth, snail mail address, description, etc. as found in the address book for this entry. Select 'data and image' to make YAM display a picture of the sender (of course there's got to be one in the address book ;)) in addition to the other data. 
     489 
     490`Wrap headers` 
     491  Choose whether to show long headers on one line or to break them on two or more. In the first case, you will need to use the horizontal scrollbar in order to see all the information.

     493'''''Message body layout''''' 
     494 
     495`Sig. separator` 
     496  It has become a custom to separate the signature from the text of an e-mail using two dashes and a space. If you don't like this kind of separation, you can define another here. Apart from the setting 'two dashes' you can select between 'separator bar', 'blank line' or even 'no signature' to have no signature at all. 
     497 
     498`Colored text` 
     499  Text passages embedded in # characters will be highlighted by YAM in a special color both in the internal editor and in the Read window.  Here you can define the color used for that purpose. 
     500

     506'''''Font settings''''' 
     507 
     508`Use fixed font` 
     509  It often makes more sense to use a non-proportional font to read messages, since the layout of any tables will be distorted when using proportional fonts. Don't forget to specify the font of your choice in the 'TextEditor' module of YAM's MUI settings, under 'Fonts/fixed'. 
     510 
     511`Show text colors` 
     512 
     513`Show text styles` 
     514  YAM uses the characters '_', '/', '*' and '#' to indicate underlined, italic, bold and colored text.  For certain special documents, as it is the case with source code, this can make things difficult because some characters are suppressed. So you have the option of switching the rendering of text styles on or off.

     546'''''Message Body''''' 
     547 
     548`Welcome phrase` 
     549  YAM will insert this text at the beginning of every new message you write (except for answers and forwarded messages). You can define a line break by inserting '\n'. 
     550 
     551  Example: 'Hello,\n' 
     552 
     553`Closing phrase` 
     554  This text will be inserted at the end of every new message you write, just before the signature separator.  You can insert a line break with '\n'. 
     555 
     556  Example: 'Kind regards\n\nJohn Doe'

     561 
     562`Word wrap` 
     563  When you save a newly written message, it will be formatted to make sure that no line has more characters than the value specified here. You can also decide whether YAM will insert line breaks as you type or if this should be postponed until you send the message.  In the first case, the internal editor will insert line break codes while you're typing the message.  This way you avoid unwanted surprises when the text is formatted later on saving the message, but on the other hand, any subsequent insertion or deletion of text might be a little less comfortable. 
     564 
     565  Example: 76 
     566 
     567`Email cache` 
     568  YAM can cache on disk a certain number of the most recent recipients used when writing a new email, if those recipients aren't already in your address book. This may improve the performance of the automatic name completer, especially if your address book is rather brief and you often find yourself having to type your recipient's name and address. 
     569 
     570  If the hit ratio of the email cache is very low in your everyday use, you might want to turn it off completely by selecting zero mails.

     582'''''Other options''''' 
     583 
     584`Warn when there's an empty subject line` 
     585  Activate this option to let YAM warn you any time you try to send an email with an empty subject line.  This may be the case when sending email to mailing list managers and other automated services, but it is generally considered as bad taste to use an empty subject line when posting to a mailing list.  If you seldom use empty subject lines or you use to forget to fill in this field, you might want to use this option. 
     586 
     587`Launch external editor immediately` 
     588  Activate this option if you would like the external editor to be launched automatically as soon as you start creating a new message.  By doing so you won't have to click on the [Editor] button in the Write window.

     597'''''Replying''''' 
     598 
     599`Default reply phrase` 
     600  When you reply to a message, YAM can automatically insert three different phrases in the new message: greetings (Open), an introduction to the quoted message (Intro) and a closing phrase (Close). Use the cycle gadget to select one of these phrases and enter it in the field on the right.  Click the pop-up button to select a variable from the list (for subject, date, sender, etc.). 
     601 
     602  Example:  [Open]    'Hello %f,\n' 
     603            [Intro]   'On %d, you wrote:\n' 
     604            [Close]   'Kind regards' 
     605 
     606`Alternative reply phrase` 
     607  Communicating via Internet often means writing in another language. For that reason, YAM is capable of using an alternative reply phrase set, which will be used automatically whenever the recipient's address matches an user defined pattern.  This way you can, for instance, use a German version of the reply phrase set for addresses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, while using the English version for all other countries. 
     608 
     609  Example:  [Open]    'Hallo %f,\n' 
     610            [Intro]   'Am %d schriebst Du:\n' 
     611            [Close]   'Mit freundlichem Gruss' 
     612 
     613`Use with these domains` 
     614  Whenever the recipient's address corresponds with this AmigaDOS pattern , the alternative reply phrases will be used. 
     615 
     616  Example:  '#?.(de|ch|at)' (Addresses of countries with German mother tongue) 
     617[=#FixReply] 
     618`Mailing list reply phrase` 
     619  To answer a message belonging to a mailing list, another set of phrases is available -- they will be used if the message that is being answered is stored in a folder for which mailing list support has been activated (see  folder configuration ). 
     620 
     621  Example:  [Open]    'Hi!\n' 
     622            [Intro]   'On %d, %n wrote:\n' 
     623            [Close]   'Kind regards' 
     624 
     625`Verify recipient address` 
     626  If this option is enabled, YAM will check if the sender and the return address are the same -- if the "From:" and the "Reply-To:" headers of the message are different, you will be asked to select whom to reply to.  This way it is fairly easy to reply privately to a message from a mailing list. 
     627 
     628`Quote empty lines` 
     629  Usually, the quotation character is inserted at the beginning of empty lines contained in the quoted message.  If for some reason you don't like this, just deactivate this option. 
     630 
     631`Strip signature` 
     632  Activate this option to avoid quoting the signature (since you'll delete the signature anyway in most cases).  This option will work only when the signature in the quoted message is separated from the actual message by the standard '-- ' separator, that is, two dashes AND a space. 
     633 
     634'''''Forwarding''''' 
     635 
     636`Forward messages...` 
     637 
     638`Initial phrase` 
     639  This text will be added at the beginning of the original text of any message you forward.  Click the pop-up button to select from a list of variables which can be inserted (for example %r stands for the name of the recipient, %s stands for the subject, etc.).  When the text is inserted into the message, YAM replaces the variables with their respective values, taken from the forwarded message. 
     640 
     641  Example: '*** Forwarded message, originally by %n on %d: ***\n' 
     642 
     643`Terminating phrase` 
     644  This text will be inserted at the end of any forwarded message, but before the greetings phrase.  Click the pop-up button to select a variable from the list (for subject, date, sender, etc.). 
     645 
     646  Example:  '*** End of forwarded message ***\n'

     666  Click this button to insert the '%t' variable at the actual cursor position in the editor.  When processing a new message, YAM will replace this variable with a random tagline from the taglines file. 
     667 
     668`Insert ENV:Signature` 
     669  Click this button to insert the variable '%e' at the current cursor position in the editor.  YAM will replace this variable with the contents of the 'SIGNATURE' environment variable while creating a new message.  This way it is possible to have random values automatically inserted into the signature, like the date, the actual temperature, the time, your weight or whatever...

     677 
     678  Example: 'PROGDIR:.taglines'  
     679 
     680`Tagline separator` 
     681  Since a tagline can consist of several actual lines, the single entries in the tagline file have to be separated from each other. Insert the string that is used for separating one tagline from another in your tagline file into this text field.

     741 
     742`Send mail in outgoing queue` 
     743  If this option is activated, YAM will search the Outgoing folder for messages to send on startup and ask you if you'd like to send them.  Please note that this will work only if a TCP/IP stack has been loaded previously.  You can temporarily stop YAM from doing so by starting YAM from a shell with the NOCHECK switch.

Messages in  MIME format  contain a field called Content-Type in which the type of the encoded file is specified.  You can define a different program to process every single type of file.  This is important for users who do not want to use MultiView for processing images and sound files, or for processing file types not yet supported by datatypes. Click New to configure a display program, or use Delete to delete an entry. 
     765  
     766In addition, new file types defined here are also taken into account when composing a new message.  For instance, if a new attachment type "application/pgs" is defined for filenames ending in ".pgs", YAM will automatically use this MIME type when attaching files that bear this extension. 
     767 
     768'''''Options''''' 
     769 
     770`MIME type` 
     771  This is the type of the actual entry, and corresponds to the Content-Type field contained in the message.  You can select one from the pop-up list or use AmigaDOS wildcards, e.g. 'image/#?' to use the programme for a whole class of file types. 
     772 
     773  Example: 'image/jpeg' 
     774 
     775`File extensions` 
     776  Filename extension for the file type.  This extension allows YAM to assign the correct "Content-Type:" field for a file. 
     777 
     778  Example: 'jpg jpeg jfif' 
     779 
     780`Description` 
     781 
     782`Viewer` 
     783  Choose the program you'd like to use to display the attachment. Do not forget to insert a "%s" into the command line, which will be replaced by the filename when processing. 
     784 
     785  Example: 'TOOLS:Gfx/ViewJPG "%s"' 
     786 
     787`Display charset` 
     788 
     789'''''Default''''' 
     790 
     791`Default viewer` 
     792  This viewer will be used if the attachment doesn't match any of the user defined types (see above). 
     793 
     794  Example: 'SYS:Utilities/MultiView "%s" SCREEN' 
     795 
     796`Display charset`

     800== Address book == 
     801Configure address book related options. 
     802 
     803'''''Colums''''' 
     804 
     805Select the items you want to see in the address book. 
     806 
     807'''''Personal data exchange''''' 
     808 
     809`Save sender's address` 
     810  YAM can automatically save the sender's address when you're reading a message, i.e. it will create a new entry in the address book.  Choose one of these modes: 
     811 
     812  //never// Don't save addresses 
     813  //if info available; ask// You'll only be asked if there's personal data of the sender available, otherwise the address won't be saved 
     814  //ask before// You'll be asked every time whether the address should be saved or not 
     815  //if info available// The address will be saved automatically if there's personal data of the sender available 
     816  //always// All new addresses will be saved automatically 
     817 
     818`Group for new entries` 
     819  Alias of the group that will contain the new address book entries created by the previous option.  The group will be created if it doesn't exist yet. 
     820 
     821  Example:  NEW 
     822 
     823`Save photos in` 
     824  The pictures of the senders are stored here. 
     825 
     826  Example:  PROGDIR:Gallery 
     827 
     828`HTTP Proxy server` 
     829  If you're behind a firewall and only get into the Internet using a proxy server, then you have to enter here the address of that proxy server, otherwise it won't be possible to download photos or get information about new versions of YAM. 
     830 
     831  Example: proxy.example.com:8080

     834[[=#FixScripts]] 
     835== Scripts == 
     836As well as the "Scripts" menu in the main window, which can hold up to ten scripts, ARexx scripts can also be started by certain events. For example, it is possible with two simple scripts to start up Miami in order to go online and fetch new mail, and then close Miami again once the mail has been downloaded. 
     837 
     838`Name` 
     839  The title of the script as it appears in the "Scripts" menu, e.g. "Start Browser". 
     840 
     841`Script` 
     842  File name of the ARexx script, including any needed parameters (in the usual ARexx fashion, but without a call to 'RX'). 
     843 
     844  Example: PROGDIR:rexx/StartBrowser.rexx 
     845 
     846`Open Console window` 
     847  The script will open a console window for input and output while it is running.  Switch this option off if a console window is not required. 
     848 
     849`Wait for termination` 
     850  Switch this option off if you want the script to run in the background, which means you don't want to wait for it to finish before YAM can go ahead with other tasks. 
     851 
     852----- 
     853[[=#FixMisc]]

     856 
     857'''''Paths''''' 
     858 
     859`For temporary files` 
     860  YAM needs this directory to save some files needed while processing e.g. messages with MIME attachments.  If you are short on memory (2 MB or less), you better choose a path on your hard disk to avoid possible problems with very large messages. 
     861 
     862  Example: 'T:' 
     863 
     864`Decode files to` 
     865 
     866`Attach files from`

     877 
     878`AppIcon on Workbench` 
     879 
     880`Label` 
     881  The label for the AppIcon which will be displayed while YAM is running can be specified here.  Click the pop-up button to select a variable for new, unread, etc. messages. 
     882 
     883`Position X/Y` 
     884  Enter here the desired position on your Workbench for YAM's AppIcon.  If another icon is already ocuppying this position, Workbench will choose a 'safe' position for the AppIcon on its own (so you don't have to worry about 'deleting' another icon). 
     885 
     886  Example: 'X:550  Y:144' 
     887 
     888`Enable 'docky' icon` 
     889Is Enable 'docky' icon outdated? Cannot see in misc screen. 
     890 
     891`Close gadget iconifies program` 
     892  Following the MUI default behavior, the close gadget (or the <Esc> key) will terminate the program.  Activate this option to let them iconify YAM instead. 
     893 
     894'''''Save/delete messages''''' 
     895 
     896`Confirm deletion of <n> or more messages` 
     897  If this option is activated, a security requester will appear before deleting a certain number of messages.  This makes sense especially when a number of two or more is selected. 
     898 
     899`Remove messages immediately` 
     900  If this option is switched on, messages won't be moved to the 'Deleted' folder on deletion -- instead, they will be erased immediately from the hard disk.  This saves some time and memory, but on the other hand you won't be able to retrieve any message deleted by mistake. 
     901 
     902'''''XPK/LhA settings''''' 
     903 
     904`Packer` 
     905  By clicking the pop-up button, you can choose the XPK library you wish to use to compress folders.  Before doing so, an XPK package must be installed on your computer system.  This package is not contained in the YAM archive, but can be downloaded from the Aminet.  You can select the packer's efficiency by using the slider bar on the right-hand side of the pop-up button -- the higher the value, the better compression, but also slower. 
     906 
     907  Example: 'NUKE 100%' 
     908 
     909`Pack/protect` 
     910  Click the pop-up button to select the XPK library you wish to use for compression and password protection of folders.  You can only select XPK libraries offering password protection.  Specify the packer's efficiency with the slider bar on the right-hand side of the pop-up button. 
     911 
     912  Example:  'HUFF 50%' 
     913 
     914`Archiver` 
     915  YAM is capable of crunching one or more files before attaching them to an e-mail, using a suitable archiver such as LHA, LZX or ZIP.  Enter here the full command path line for your favourite archiver, including any options.  You can insert variables for the resulting archive and the source files (or a list containing the source files) by clicking the pop-up button on the right hand side of the text field. 
     916 
     917  Example: 'LhA -a -m -i%l a %a'

     1012 
     1013`Check for updates` 
     1014  Allows you to select the interval at which YAM will check for updates to itself and other third party software, which YAM needs. A button next to it, allows you to do manual checks for updates at will. 
     1015 
     1016  Below you can also see when exactly the last check was done. 
     1017 
     1018----- 
     1019----- 
     1020= Hidden Configuration = 
     1021 
     1022YAM recognises some extra parameters that are not mentioned in any configuration window.  You have to load the file .config into a text editor and alter the parameters in the Advanced section by hand. 
     1023 
     1024`LetterPart` 
     1025  Usually the first part of a multipart letter contains the actual message, while the subsequent parts are the attachments.  A few mail servers, like GeoCities, use the first part for their advertisements, which would then be quoted in a reply instead of the actual message.  With the LetterPart option you can correct this. 
     1026 
     1027  Example: 'LetterPart = 2' 
     1028 
     1029`WriteIndexes` 
     1030  If the contents of a folder are altered, YAM must rebuild the index.  This index is in RAM memory, and it is saved back to the hard disk on a normal exit.  In the event that the computer has to be rebooted (because of a crash, perhaps), YAM has to rebuild the indices on startup.  Therefore, YAM will save alterations to the index file at intervals of 120 seconds.  This time interval can be altered using the WriteIndexes option. 
     1031 
     1032  Example: 'WriteIndexes = 30' 
     1033 
     1034`AutoSave` ---> Outdated? 
     1035  While you're writing a message, YAM saves the contents of the editor every ten minutes as .autosave0.txt or .autosave1.txt in the program directory.  After a crash you can load this file using "Text/Insert".  The AutoSave parameter contains the time interval between two backups, in seconds. 
     1036 
     1037  Example: 'AutoSave = 600' 
     1038 
     1039`ExpungeIndexes` 
     1040 
     1041`SupportSite` 
     1042  This is the address of the YAM homepage, used to access the user picture gallery and to request the version check. 
     1043 
     1044  Example: 'SupportSite = http://yam.ch/' 
     1045 
     1046`JumpToNewMsg` ---> Outdated? 
     1047  If this option is set to 'Y', YAM will jump to the first new or unread message whenever you select a folder. 
     1048 
     1049  Example: 'JumpToNewMsg = N' 
     1050 
     1051`JumpToIncoming` 
     1052  If this option is set to 'Y', YAM will jump to the first new or unread message whenever you download new email.  This only comes into effect if 'Incoming' is the current folder. 
     1053 
     1054  Example: 'JumpToIncoming = N'  
     1055 
     1056`AskJumpUnread` 
     1057  If this option is set to 'N', YAM won't ask if you want to jump to the next/previous folder with unread messages if you are reading the last or first message and select any of the Next/Previous unread message items in the Navigation menu. 
     1058 
     1059  Example: 'AskJumpUnread = N' 
     1060 
     1061`PrinterCheck` 
     1062  YAM does some printer checking before printing a message.  This test can be disabled because it's not fully compatible with some printer drivers. 
     1063 
     1064  Example: 'PrinterCheck = N' 
     1065 
     1066`IsOnlineCheck` 
     1067  If you're using Miami or AmiTCP/Genesis, YAM can check if your Amiga is really online.  If you're using another TCP/IP software and YAM is claiming a missing connection although you're actually online, then you must switch this option off. 
     1068 
     1069  Example: 'IsOnlineCheck = N' 
     1070 
     1071`IOCInterface` 
     1072  Specifies which Miami Deluxe/AmiTCP/Genesis interface should be used for the online check (see IsOnlineCheck). 
     1073 
     1074  Example: 'IOCInterface = ppp1' 
     1075 
     1076`ConfirmOnQuit` 
     1077  If this option is enabled, YAM will ask for confirmation whenever you try to quit it.  By default, YAM only asks for confirmation if there is some unsaved data (configuration, address book). 
     1078 
     1079  Example: 'ConfirmOnQuit = Y'  
     1080 
     1081`HideGUIElements` 
     1082  This can be used to hide some elements of the graphic user interface. The following values can be combined: 4 for the toolbars, 2 for the cursor position in the editor, and 1 for the status bar. 
     1083 
     1084  Please note that as of YAM 2.4, the status bar is not affected by this setting anymore, but it is now set in Configuration/Lists. 
     1085 
     1086  Example: 'HideGUIElements = 3' 
     1087 
     1088`LocalCharset` ---> Outdated? 
     1089  This is the ISO name of the character set you're using on your computer.  The default iso-8859-1 (Latin-1) works for Western Europe and English speaking countries.  Polish and Russian users probably have to adjust this option. 
     1090 
     1091  Example: 'LocalCharset = iso-8859-2'

     1140`MachineFQDN` 
     1141 
     1142`OverrideFromAddress` 
     1143  Setting this option to "Y" will add a recipient string object below the identity chooser in the write window.  
     1144  The contents default to the chosen identity's address but can be modified freely.  
     1145  This makes it possible to use a different From: address than the one configured in the identity while still using all other settings like the SMTP server.
