     120=== PERSON === 
     121 
     122==== Electronic mail ==== 
     123 
     124'''Alias''' 
     125     An 'Alias' is a convenient short name that identifies the address 
     126     book entry unambiguously.  Its function is to save typing -- you can 
     127     put the alias into the "To:" field of a message, and YAM will fill 
     128     in the details when sending the message.  If you leave this field 
     129     blank, YAM will create an alias for the entry on its own. 
     130 
     131     Example:  JohnD 
     132 
     133 
     134'''Real name'''

     146'''PGP key ID''' 
     147     The hexadecimal code of this person's PGP public key, needed to 
     148     send the recipient a PGP encrypted message.  Click the pop-up 
     149     button to select the key from your public keyring; PGP must be 
     150     installed on your system and the key you're looking for must be 
     151     there. 
     152 
     153     Example:  0x709B40C3

     158     can connect to this address via your browser, provided that the 
     159     appropriate script is specified in the [[co13| scripts ]] configuration 
     160     for 'When double clicking a URL' or you have '''OpenURL''' installed, 
     161     in which case the latter will get priority.  All you have to do 
     162     is to click on the button to the right of the textfield.

     200     entry.

     211==== Portrait ==== 
     212 
     213'''Select''' 
     214     Here you can select a picture (preferably a portrait) of the 
     215     person.  Since YAM uses the datatypes.library, you may use any 
     216     kind of picture format as long as you've installed the datatypes 
     217     needed for displaying it.  If you desire so, this picture will 
     218     show up whenever you display a message written by this person 
     219     (see 'Sender info' in the [[Configuration#FixRead| Read ]] configuration). 
     220 
     221 
     222'''Download''' 
     223     You can find a steadily growing number of portraits of other 
     224     users of YAM on the YAM homepage.  YAM can access this data bank 
     225     automatically -- all you need to do is enter the name and/or the 
     226     e-mail address, connect to the Internet and click the '''Download''' 
     227     button.  YAM starts by getting a list of available photos and 
     228     searching it for the named person.  If found, any information 
     229     missing from the address book entry (Name, e-mail address and 
     230     homepage) will be made good and the picture downloaded and saved 
     231     in the gallery.  
     232 
     233=== LIST ===

     235'''Alias''' 
     236     Same as described above. 
     237 
     238 
     239'''Return address''' 
     240     If you'd like to maintain a small mailing list using a YAM 
     241     distribution list, you will have to correct the "Reply-To:" 
     242     addresses of the original messages, otherwise the answer to 
     243     an e-mail would be returned to the message's author and not 
     244     to the mailing list as you would probably want.  Enter here 
     245     the return address you'd like to use, or click the pop-up 
     246     button to open the address book window and then drag an entry 
     247     from there into this field. 
     248 
     249     Example:  discussion@example.net 
     250

     252'''Mailing list name''' 
     253     When maintaining a mailing list by using a YAM distribution list, 
     254     enter the mailing list's name here.  This name will appear in the 
     255     '''To:''' header field to help the recipient to sort the mail correctly 
     256     by using filters. 
     257 
     258     Example:  discussion-ML 
     259 
     260 
     261'''Members''' 
     262     A list of all current members of the distribution list.  You may 
     263     enter aliases, names or complete e-mail addresses.  Click on [New] 
     264     to add a new list member, [Delete] to delete the highlighted entry 
     265     or [Sort] to have all entries sorted alphabetically. 
     266 
     267 
     268 
     269=== GROUP ===
