    v2 v3  
    7373  Example: No 
    7474 
     75`Username` 
     76  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>). 
     77 
     78  Example: jdoe 
     79 
     80`Password` 
     81  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. 
     82 
     83  Example: nguz56 
     84 
    7585`Use SMTP TLSv1/SSLv3` 
    7686  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. 
    7787 
    7888  Example: No 
     89 
     90=== Receive mail (POP3) === 
     91Apart 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 
     92on 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. 
     93 
     94`Server` 
     95  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. 
     96 
     97  Example: pop.example.com 
     98 
     99`Port` 
     100  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. 
     101 
     102  Example: 110 
     103 
     104`Username` 
     105  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>). 
     106 
     107  Example: jdoe 
     108 
     109`Password` 
     110  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. 
     111 
     112  Example: nguz56 
     113 
     114`Active` 
     115  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. 
     116 
     117  Example: Yes 
     118 
     119`Use POP3 TLSv1/SSLv3` 
     120  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. 
     121  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. 
     122  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. 
     123 
     124  Example: Yes 
     125 
     126`Login using APOP` 
     127  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. 
     128 
     129  Example: No 
     130 
     131`Delete mail on server` 
     132  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. 
     133 
     134  Example Yes
