     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'''

     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.

     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.

     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.

     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.

     255     '''To:''' header field to help the recipient to sort the mail correctly
     256     by using filters.

     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.
