    36This chapter is meant to be a step-by-step guide to the way YAM 
     
    912 1. Get the following information from your Internet provider: 
    1013    [[BR]] 
    11       Your e-mail address[[BR]] 
    12       The Internet address of the mail server (so called POP- or SMTP server)[[BR]] 
    13       Your password, required to log in on the mail server 
     14      - Your e-mail address[[BR]] 
     15      - The Internet address of the mail server (so called POP- or SMTP server)[[BR]] 
     16      - Your password, required to log in on the mail server 
    1417    As an example here's the setup for a fictitious user named 'John 
    1518    Doe' living in Britain.  His e-mail address is 'jdoe\@example.com' 
     
    2225 
    2326 3. The program must be configured before you can do anything else. 
    24     Choose 'Configuration' from the 'Settings' menu or simply click 
    25     the button with the question mark to open the configuration 
    26     window.  The sheet which then appears is called 'First  Steps', 
     27    Choose '[[Configuration|Configuration]]' from the '[[Menus#FixMainSettings|Settings]]' menu or simply click 
     28    the button [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Config)]] to open the configuration 
     29    window.  The sheet which then appears is called '[[Configuration#FixFirstSteps|First  Steps]]', 
    2730    and this is where you must enter the information needed for data 
    2831    transfer.  Following our example this is: 
     
    4043 4. YAM allows you to define a text passage which will be appended to 
    4144    all of your e-mail as a complimentary closing phrase.  To define it 
    42     you have to click on 'Write' in the list on the left hand side of 
     45    you have to click on '[[Configuration#FixWrite|Write]]' in the list on the left hand side of 
    4346    the configuration window.  On the page appearing now select the 
    4447    text field 'Welcome phrase', delete the original text by hitting 
     
    5356 
    5457 6. After saving the settings you're back in the main window.  Click 
    55     the button 'Write' (sixth button from the left) or choose 'New' 
    56     from the 'Message' menu.  The editor window will open.  Insert 
     58    the button 'Write' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_NewMail)]] or choose 'New' 
     59    from the 'Message' menu.  The [[Windows/Writewindow|editor window]] will open.  Insert 
    5760    the e-mail address of the recipient into the 'To' textfield (e.g. 
    5861    'jdoe\@example.com').  Normally of course you would put someone 
     
    7679    folder by clicking on 'Outgoing' in the folder list contained in 
    7780    the main window.  Send the message by clicking the 'Send' button 
    78     (fifth button from the right hand  side).  The transfer status 
     81    [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_SendAll)]].  The transfer status 
    7982    window will appear and report progress as YAM logs in on the 
    8083    mail server and sends the message. 
     
    8386    'Outgoing' folder.  Don't panic!  It has been moved to the 'Sent' 
    8487    folder.  The letter symbol in the list has a little stamp on it 
    85     now, which means that the message has been sent successfully. 
     88    now [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/status/status_sent)]],  
     89    which means that the message has been sent successfully. 
    8690 
    87 10. When you double-click the message, the read window will open. 
    88     You should be able to recognize the text written by you. The lines 
    89     in the upper part of the message have been inserted by YAM and 
    90     contain data needed for mail transfer (the so-called "headers"). 
     9110. When you double-click the message, the [[Windows/Readwindow|read window]] will open. You should be able to recognize the text written by you. The lines in the upper part of the message have been inserted by YAM and contain data needed for mail transfer (the so-called "headers").

    93     for new mail now.  Click the read window to the background or close 
    94     it, then click on the 'Get' button (sixth button from the right 
    95     hand side).

    100     the message that you  have received new mail.  You can read the
