     3== Startup options ==
     4
     5YAM supports some startup options, which can be used both from the
     6Shell and as Workbench tooltypes.
     7
     8
     9'''USER=<user name>'''
     10     Selects the active YAM user.  This way you can skip the login
     11     procedure on startup in case you've created multiple users.
     12
     13
     14'''PASSWORD=<password>'''
     15     This is the password for the selected user (see above).  It serves
     16     to avoid the password request on startup, but bear in mind that
     17     storing the password in a tooltype poses an obvious security risk.
     18     Also, the password is case sensitive.
     19
     20
     21'''MAILDIR=<path>'''
     22     Sets the home directory for the folders and configuration files.
     23     In YAM 1.3.x this option was used to implement multi-user support;
     24     YAM 2.x sets the home directory for each user in the user
     25     configuration.
     26
     27
     28'''PREFSFILE=<filename>'''
     29     Configuration file that should be used.  Default is
     30     '''<MAILDIR>/.config'''.
     31
     32
     33'''HIDE'''
     34     Starts YAM in iconified mode.
     35
     36
     37'''NOCHECK'''
     38     Starts YAM without trying to download/send new mail nor check
     39     birthdays on startup.  Useful if you are starting YAM from a web
     40     browser, for example.
     41
     42
     43'''DEBUG'''
     44     This option sends the conversation between YAM and the mail
     45     server to a console window.  This is a very valuable tool
     46     if the connection to your mail server keeps failing.
     47
     48
     49'''MAILTO=<recipients>'''
     50     Creates a new message for the specified recipients on startup.
     51     You can use not only a full email address, but also an alias or
     52     a real name that can be found in your address book, as YAM will
     53     expand them as appropriate.  Use commas to separate each recipient.
     54
     55     Example:  MAILTO="Marcel Beck, damato, mum@example.org
     56
     57
     58'''SUBJECT=<subject>'''
     59     Sets the subject for the new message (see MAILTO).
     60
     61
     62'''LETTER=<filename>'''
     63     The text file containing the letter you want to send (see MAILTO).
     64
     65
     66'''ATTACH=<filename>'''
     67     Attaches a file to the new message (see MAILTO).
     68
     69
     70A couple of examples:
     71
     72            YAM USER Tom PASSWORD secret HIDE\\
     73            YAM NOCHECK MAILTO "yam@freelists.org, YAMOS-dev, John Doe" SUBJECT "Bug Report" ATTACH "ram:debug.txt"\\
