    1111'''''Minimal configuration''''' 
    1212 
    13 `Full Name` 
     13`Real Name` 
    1414  Your real name and surname.  Please take care that this field is filled in correctly.  DO NOT use quotation marks in your name.

    2121  Example: jdoe@example.com 
    2222 
    23 `Mail server` 
     23`Server name` 
    2424  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. 
    2525 
     
    7070 
    7171`Port` 
     72 
    7273  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. 
    7374 
    7475  Example: 110 
    7576 
     77`Test connection settings` 
     78 
    7679'''''Security and Authentification''''' 
    7780 
    7881`Connection Security` 
    79   Activate this option 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. 
    80   The with STLS option will force the use of the POP3 STARTTLS  extension, adding another layer of security to the communication, using again port 110. 
     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. 
    8184  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. 
    8285 
     
    108111`Check for new mail on startup` 
    109112 
    110 `Check for new mail every...` 
     113`Check for new mail every <n> minutes` 
    111114  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. 
    112115 
    113116  Example: 15 minutes 
    114117 
    115 `Download messages larger than...` 
     118`Download messages larger than <n> KB` 
    116119  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'. 
    117120 
     
    126129 
    127130`Apply remote filter` 
     131  Apply all all defined remote filters when downloading from this server. 
    128132 
    129133'''''Default folders''''' 
    130134 
    131135`'Incoming' folder` 
     136  Allows to set a different folder where mails will be stored after having received them.

    165170 
    166171`Port` 
     172 
    167173  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. 
    168174 
    169175  Example: 25

    193201'''''Options''''' 
    194202 
    195 `SMTP server allows 8bit` 
     203`Server allows 8bit characters` 
    196204  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. 
    197205 
     
    201209 
    202210`'Sent' folder` 
     211  Allows to set a different folder where mails will be stored after being sent out.

    330339=== Conditions === 
     340If (all|one or more|only one)... of the following conditions are met: 
     341 
    331342`Search in` 
    332343  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). 
     
    435446`"Not spam" classified mails...` 
    436447 
    437 `Reset Spam training data` 
     448`Reset training data` 
    438449  Resets the Spam training data. Should only be necessary in rare circumstances. 
    439450 
     
    454465  This option will automatically mark new spam mails as read. 
    455466 
    456 `Move 'Not Spam' back to 'Incoming'` 
     467`Move 'not spam' e-mails back to Incoming folder` 
    457468  Will move mails that has been wrongfully detected as spam or mails that have manually been marked as 'Not Spam' back to 'Incoming' folder. 
    458469 
     
    470481 
    471482`Headers` 
    472   If 'full' is selected, all the headers will be displayed. Select 'none' if you don't want to see any header. When you switch to 'selected', 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. 
     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.

    474485  Example: '(From|Subject|Date|X-Mailer)' 
     
    516527`Search for mails of same thread in all folders`

     529`Delay marking of displayed mail as read for <n> second(s)` 
    519530 
    520531`Convert HTML e-mails to plain text` 
     
    645656  If this option is activated, a signature will be inserted at the end of each message you write.

    688701[[=#FixLogfiles]] 
     
    748761Configure MIME viewers for attachments. 
    749762 
    750 === MIME viewers === 
     763=== MIME type === 
    751764The program selected by default to display attachments is MultiView. 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. 
    752765  
     
    760773  Example: 'image/jpeg' 
    761774 
    762 `File xtensions` 
     775`File extensions` 
    763776  Filename extension for the file type.  This extension allows YAM to assign the correct "Content-Type:" field for a file. 
    764777

    879894'''''Save/delete messages''''' 
    880895 
    881 `Confirm deletion of [xx] or more messages` 
     896`Confirm deletion of <n> or more messages` 
    882897  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. 
    883898 
     
    902917  Example: 'LhA -a -m -i%l a %a'

    10141033 
    1015 `AutoSave` 
     1034`AutoSave` ---> Outdated? 
    10161035  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. 
    10171036 
    10181037  Example: 'AutoSave = 600'

    10661087 
    1067 `LocalCharset` 
     1088`LocalCharset` ---> Outdated? 
    10681089  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. 
    10691090
