    v18 v19  
    709709`Wait for termination`
    710710  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.
     712=== Miscellaneous ===
     713Paths, AppIcon, save/delete, tracking & packing
     715== Paths ==
     716`Directory for temp files`
     717  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.
     719  Example: 'T:'
     721== Mailbox status AppIcon ==
     723`Position X/Y`
     724  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).
     726  Example: 'X:550  Y:144'
     729  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.
     731`Close gadget iconifies program`
     732  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.
     734== Save/delete messages ==
     736`Confirm deletion of [xx] or more messages`
     737  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.
     739`Remove messages immediately`
     740  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.
     742`Save sent messages`
     743  Activate this option to make YAM save sent messages into the 'Sent' folder.  You can select this as well specifically for any single mail, by using the relevant option in the  Write  window.
     745== Message tracking ==
     747Here you can define how YAM should react if a message's sender has requested a disposition notification (MDN) while writing his/her message.
     749 //Ignore//   - The request will be ignored completely and there won't be any report.
     750 //Autodeny// - The sender will be informed that you don't wish to send a disposition notification for the message.
     751 //Accept//   - The sender will be informed as requested about the message's disposition.
     752 //Ask user// - You can decide in each case if you want to ignore, deny or accept the request.
     754  Additionally, YAM's reaction can be related to the event activating the disposition notification:
     756 //Display//  - The message was read or answered
     757 //Process//  - The message was bounced or forwarded without reading
     758 //Delete//   - The message was deleted without reading
     759 //Filter//   - The message was automatically processed or deleted by a filter
     761`Send at once`
     762  The condition report will be sent immediately if there's a TCP/IP stack running, otherwise it will be saved to the 'Outgoing' folder.
     764== XPK/LhA settings ==
     767  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.
     769  Example: 'NUKE 100%'
     772  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.
     774  Example:  'HUFF 50%'
     777  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.
     779  Example: 'LhA -a -m -i%l a %a'
