     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"\\
