    v2 v3  
    485485     be able to send you messages signed and/or encrypted with PGP. 
    486486 
     487== Read window == 
     488 
     489[[=#FixReadMessage]] 
     490=== Message menu === 
     491 
     492'''Message/Edit...''' 
     493     Sends the current message to the message editor.  This option 
     494     is only available for "Outgoing mail"-like folders. 
     495 
     496 
     497'''Message/Move...''' 
     498     Moves the current message to a different folder. 
     499 
     500 
     501'''Message/Copy...''' 
     502     Creates a copy of the current message.  With the exception of the 
     503     filename, the copy is identical to the original. 
     504 
     505 
     506'''Message/Delete''' 
     507     Deletes the current message and loads the next one into the Read 
     508     window.  Unless the option '''Remove messages immediately''' is enabled 
     509     in the [[Configuration#FixMisc| Miscellaneous ]] configuration settings, the message is 
     510     actually moved into the '''Deleted''' folder, from which it can be 
     511     recovered if needed.  The <Del> key works as a convenient keyboard 
     512     shortcut, while <Shift-Del> forces an immediate (irreversible) 
     513     deletion, no matter which configuration settings are in use. 
     514 
     515 
     516'''Message/Print...''' 
     517     Sends the current message, or a part of it, to the printer.  A 
     518     requester opens to let you choose whether to print the original 
     519     message without decoding (raw format), print the decoded text as 
     520     diplayed, or print an attached text file.  Note that you cannot 
     521     print binary data such as graphics; for that purpose you must use 
     522     the relevant print option in the appropriate [[Configuration#FixMime| MIME viewer ]]. 
     523 
     524 
     525'''Message/Save...''' 
     526     Saves the current message or a part of it to your hard disk, 
     527     floppy, etc.  Again a requester appears to let you choose whether 
     528     to save the message in raw format, the decoded message (as it 
     529     appears in the Read window), or to save one of the attached files. 
     530 
     531 
     532'''Message/Attachments >>  Display...''' 
     533     Displays the current message or part of it using the MIME viewer 
     534     selected in the [[Configuration#FixMime| MIME configuration ]].  You can choose whether to 
     535     display the message in raw format (to check for errors) or to view 
     536     one of the attached files.  If nothing happens, check the settings 
     537     for MIME viewers in the configuration. 
     538 
     539 
     540'''Message/Attachments >>  Save all...''' 
     541     Saves all the files attached to the current message to the 
     542     directory you select. 
     543 
     544 
     545'''Message/Attachments >>  Crop''' 
     546     Deletes all the attached files for the current message in order to 
     547     save disk space.  '''BEWARE:''' these files are not sent to the '''Deleted''' 
     548     folder, so be sure that you don't want to keep any of them!  This 
     549     function only applies to messages in [[What is e-mail#FixMime| MIME format ]].  A notice is 
     550     added to the end of the message about the removed files. 
     551 
     552 
     553'''Message/New''' 
     554     Opens the [[Window write| Write window ]] so you can compose a new message. 
     555 
     556 
     557'''Message/Reply...''' 
     558     Use this to reply to the current message.  Subject and recipient 
     559     fields are filled in automatically and the original message is 
     560     quoted, unless the [[Configuration#FixReplyForward| Reply ]] configuration settings say otherwise. 
     561 
     562 
     563'''Message/Forward...''' 
     564     Use this to forward the contents of the message to another 
     565     recipient.  The subject and the message body are automatically 
     566     copied and a new message header is created.  The text for 
     567     forwarding defined in the [[Configuration#FixReplyForward| Reply ]] configuration is inserted in the 
     568     message. 
     569 
     570 
     571'''Message/Bounce...''' 
     572     Use this to send the original, unaltered message to another 
     573     recipient.  The only changes made are to enter a new '''To:''' header 
     574     while YAM adds a couple of '''Resent:''' headers based on the original 
     575     "To:" header.  The text for forwarded messages (as defined in the 
     576     configuration) is not used here. 
     577 
     578 
     579'''Message/Save address...''' 
     580     The address of the sender (or the recipient, depending on the type 
     581     of folder) of the current message is added to your [[Window addressbook| address book ]]. 
     582     If the message has multiple recipients, you have the option of 
     583     creating a new distribution list. 
     584 
     585 
     586'''Message/Set status''' 
     587     Lets you change the status of the current message to >> 
     588     Marked | Unmarked | Read | Unread | Hold | Queued | Spam | No Spam 
     589 
     590 
     591'''Message/Change subject...''' 
     592     This lets you change the subject of the current message, so you 
     593     can amend uninformative "Subject:" headers on some messages you have 
     594     received.  The original subject is saved in a '''X-Original-Subject:''' 
     595     header, to facilitate following a thread back. 
     596 
     597[[=#FixReadNavigation]] 
     598=== Navigation menu === 
     599 
     600 
     601'''Navigation/Next message''' 
     602     This displays the next message, i.e. the one below the current 
     603     message in the main window.  Shortcut: <cursor right> 
     604 
     605 
     606'''Navigation/Previous message''' 
     607     This displays the previous message, i.e. the one above the current 
     608     message in the main window.  Shortcut: <cursor left> 
     609 
     610 
     611'''Navigation/Next unread message''' 
     612     This displays the next unread message below the current message in 
     613     the main window.  If there are no more unread messages below the 
     614     current message in the current folder but there is some in one of 
     615     the following folders, you will be notified about it and asked if 
     616     you want to jump to that folder and continue reading there. 
     617     Shortcut: <Shift-cursor right> 
     618 
     619 
     620'''Navigation/Previous unread message''' 
     621     This displays the previous unread message above the current 
     622     message in the main window.  If there are no more unread messages 
     623     above the current message in the current folder but there is some 
     624     in one of the previous folders, you will be notified about it and 
     625     asked if you want to jump to that folder and continue reading 
     626     there.  Shortcut: <Shift-cursor left> 
     627 
     628 
     629'''Navigation/Next message in thread''' 
     630     This displays the message which replies to the current message. 
     631     This allows you to e.g. follow a dialogue between yourself and 
     632     another person, regardless of what other messages are there. 
     633     However, please note that to find the reply in a different folder, 
     634     YAM must load the index files for all the folders, and this can 
     635     take a while.  YAM compares the [[What is e-mail#FixHeader| Message-ID ]] header of the current 
     636     message with the ''In-Reply-To:'' header of the other messages.  If no 
     637     answer can be found, the screen will flash briefly. 
     638 
     639 
     640'''Navigation/Previous message in thread''' 
     641     Loads the message to which the current message is replying (see 
     642     the item above). 
     643 
     644[[=#FixReadPgp]] 
     645=== PGP menu === 
     646 
     647 
     648'''PGP/Extract public key(s)''' 
     649     If the sender of the current message has attached his 
     650     [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| public PGP key ]], you can copy this to your "key ring".  You can 
     651     then use this if this person sends you any encrypted message. 
     652 
     653 
     654'''PGP/Check PGP signature''' 
     655     Verifies the signature of the current message.  This works only 
     656     with PGP signed messages and serves to ensure that the message has 
     657     not been tampered with and is really from the sender it claims to 
     658     be. 
     659 
     660 
     661'''PGP/Save decrypted message''' 
     662     On the grounds of security, a [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| PGP encrypted ]] message is saved to 
     663     the hard disk as it stands.  To open it, you have to use the key 
     664     each time. 
     665 
     666     You can use this menu item to save the decrypted message to the 
     667     hard disk, overwriting its PGP encrypted counterpart. 
     668 
     669[[=#FixReadSettings]] 
     670=== Settings menu === 
     671 
     672These choices only apply to the current session; when you open a new 
     673Read window, the [[Configuration#FixRead| Read ]] configuration settings are used. 
     674 
     675 
     676'''Settings/No headers | Short headers | Full headers''' 
     677     Use these to select how much header information you want to see in 
     678     the Read window. 
     679 
     680 
     681'''Settings/No sender info | Data fields only | Data and image''' 
     682     This selects how much of the information saved in your [[Window addressbook| address book ]] 
     683     about the sender is to be displayed. 
     684 
     685 
     686'''Settings/Wrap headers''' 
     687     Choose whether to show a long header on one line or to break it 
     688     across two or more.  In the former case you will need to use the 
     689     horizontal scrollbar in order to see all the information. 
     690 
     691 
     692'''Settings/Textstyles''' 
     693     YAM will use the characters '_', '/', '*' and '#' to render 
     694     underlined, italic, bold and colored text respectively.  For 
     695     certain documents, such as source code, this can complicate things 
     696     as some characters will be suppressed.  Thus, you have the choice 
     697     of temporarily switch the rendering of text styles on or off. 
     698
