    v7 v8  
    335335`Apply filters`
    336336  Applies all your defined filters to mail that is moved back to the 'Incoming' folder.
     338== Read ==
     339Layout options
     341=== Message header layout ===
     343  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.
     345  Example: '(From|Subject|Date|X-Mailer)'
     347`Sender info`
     348  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.
     350`Wrap headers`
     351  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.
     353=== Message body layout ===
     354`Separate sig.`
     355  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.
     357`Colored text`
     358  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.
     360`Old quotes`
     361  Select here the color used for the several levels of quoting.
     363`Use fixed font`
     364  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'.
     366`Display all texts`
     367  If this option is activated and the message contains attachments, not only the actual body of the message will be displayed, but also those attachments themselves, as long as they are of the 'text' type.
     369`Text styles`
     370  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.
     372=== Other options ===
     373`Multiple windows`
     374  With this option selected, each message which you choose to read will open its own Read window.
