Correct some stuff so it fits with what you read in Configuration window. Add some missing stuff. Worked from "First steps" to "Read". Still missing descriptions. Maybe there is an easy way to copy/paste from bubble help text?

    6565 
    66 `Server` 
     66`Server/Port` 
    6767  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.

    7070 
    71 `Port`

    7877`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. 
     78  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. 
     79  The option STARTTLS will force the use of the POP3 STARTTLS  extension, adding another layer of security to the communication, using again port 110. 
    8180  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.

    194194 
    195 `SMTP server allows 8bit` 
     195`Server allows 8bit characters` 
    196196  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.

    202202`'Sent' folder`

    330331=== Conditions === 
     332If (all|one or more|only one)... of the following conditions are met: 
     333 
    331334`Search in` 
    332335  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).

    436439 
    437 `Reset Spam training data`

    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. 
     475  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.
