    v1 v1  
     3== Startup options ==
     5YAM supports some startup options, which can be used both from the
     6Shell and as Workbench tooltypes.
     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.
     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.
     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.
     29     Configuration file that should be used.  Default is
     30     '''<MAILDIR>/.config'''.
     34     Starts YAM in iconified mode.
     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.
     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.
     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.
     55     Example:  MAILTO="Marcel Beck, damato,
     59     Sets the subject for the new message (see MAILTO).
     63     The text file containing the letter you want to send (see MAILTO).
     67     Attaches a file to the new message (see MAILTO).
     70A couple of examples:
     72            YAM USER Tom PASSWORD secret HIDE\\
     73            YAM NOCHECK MAILTO ", YAMOS-dev, John Doe" SUBJECT "Bug Report" ATTACH "ram:debug.txt"\\
