     21By default, the list displays four columns as above, but you can (of
     22course) change the [[Configuration#FixAddressbook| address book configuration ]] to include phone numbers,
     23for example.  You can click and drag the column dividers to reposition them.
     24
     25Double click on an entry to see or edit the information in the
     26[[ea_w| Edit address ]] window.  In addition to the fields mentioned, you can
     27enter the postal address, PGP key, homepage URL, date of birth and a
     28picture.
     29
     30An entry must contain at least the real name and some e-mail
     31address.  The point of the Alias is to save typing; you can put a short
     32nickname, or initials, into the '''To:''' field of an e-mail message and let
     33YAM fill in the details.  For this to work, the alias obviously has to
     34be unique for each entry.
     35
     36In addition to personal entries, the address book can also contain
     37''Lists ''of individual recipients which can be invoked with a single
     38alias.  Lists are best used for circular e-mails, and are marked with
     39the list symbol ([[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/status/status_group)]]).
     40
     41Both individual entries and lists can be put into Groups, which are
     42like subdirectories, used to keep the address book clearly arranged.
     43Group names are displayed in bold.  You can open a group to display the
     44names in it by clicking on the little arrow in front of their name.
     45
     46Use [[drag| drag & drop ]] to move an entry from one group into another.

     50'''Save''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Save)]]
     51     Saves the address book to your hard disk.
     52
     53
     54'''Find''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Find)]]
     55     Searches the address book for a specific text string.  All variables
     56     contained in the database will be searched with full support of
     57     [[dosw| AmigaDOS patterns ]].  If the result of the search is positive the
     58     alias and the name of the found entry will be displayed.  You can
     59     then do another search or edit the found entry.  For example,
     60
     61            Anna#?
     62
     63     finds all Annas contained in the address book.
     64
     65
     66'''Person''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_NewUser)]], '''List''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_NewList)]], '''Group''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_NewGroup)]]
     67     All three buttons open the [[ea_w| Edit address ]] window to add a new entry
     68     to the address book; however, the appearance of the window depends
     69     on the type of entry, since the information stored is different.
     70
     71
     72'''Edit''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Edit)]]
     73     This also opens the Edit address window, to see or edit the
     74     information stored.  Again, the layout depends on the type of entry.
     75
     76
     77'''Delete''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Delete)]]
     78     Deletes the selected entry from the address book.
     79
     80
     81'''Print''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Print)]]
     82     Prints the selected entry.
     83
     84
     85'''Unfold''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_OpenTree)]]
     86     Unfolds all groups (subdirectories) of the address book so all
     87     entries will be visible.
     88
     89
     90'''Fold''' [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_CloseTree)]]
     91     Folds all groups (subdirectories) of the address book so only the
     92     entries at the top of the hierarchy will be visible.
     93
     94
     95'''To:'''
     96     Uses the selected entry as the primary recipient of a new e-mail.
     97     If the address book window has been opened from the main window,
     98     a new 'Write' window will appear.
     99
     100
     101'''CC:'''
     102     Uses the selected entry as secondary recipient of a new e-mail.
     103     If the address book window has been opened from the main window,
     104     a new 'Write' window will appear.
     105
     106
     107'''BCC:'''
     108     Uses the selected entry as recipient of a hidden copy of a new
     109     e-mail.  If the address book window has been opened from the main
     110     window, a new 'Write' window will appear.
