     24=== Main window – Folder list ===
     25The following six standard 'mailbox' folders are always present:
     26
     27'''Incoming'''
     28     This mailbox holds new messages addressed to you.  Whenever
     29     you download new mail, this is where the new messages will go
     30     initially.  You can, however, redistribute incoming messages
     31     to other folders, as desired, using [[co03| filters ]].
     32
     33'''Outgoing'''
     34     This mailbox holds the messages which you have written and which
     35     you intend to transmit the next time you go online.
     36
     37'''Sent'''
     38     Here you can see the messages which you have already sent.
     39     Messages are moved to this box (from 'Outgoing') when they are
     40     actually transmitted.  Again, you can use [[co03| filters ]] to transfer
     41     sent messages to other folders.
     42
     43'''Trash'''
     44     This box contains messages marked for deletion.  Normally messages
     45     are not actually deleted from the hard disk until you quit YAM.
     46     This allows you to recover messages deleted earlier in the session.
     47
     48'''Drafts'''
     49
     50'''Spam'''
     51
     52Using the [[Menus#FixMainFolder| folder menu ]] you can create more folders to hold messages
     53which you have received and/or sent, so you can arrange the mails in
     54whatever way you like, including arranging them in groups.
     55
     56The folder list can have upto five columns: Name of the folder,
     57number of messages (in total, new or unread) as well as the size of
     58the folder.  Which of these columns are actually shown depends on how
     59you set up [[Configuration#FixLists| lists ]] in the configuration; you can also use the context
     60menu (click RMB on the column headings) to have some columns temporary
     61enabled or disabled.  The column widths can be adjusted by using the
     62mouse to drag the thin lines separating the column headings in the
     63folder list itself.  The order of the columns can be modified by
     64dragging the column headings sideways.
     65
     66The folders themselves can be rearranged by [[drag| Drag&Drop ]].
     67
     68If the name of the folder is shown in white, this means that the box
     69contains new or unread mail.  When the numerical indication is missing,
     70this shows that the folder has not been scanned, which saves storage
     71space.
     72
     73The coloring of folder groups is special: they always appear in white,
     74as in "Personal".  If a folder in a group contains new or unread mail,
     75the name of the group will show up as bold, as in "'''Personal'''".
     76
     77If you "park" the mouse pointer over the list for some seconds, a
     78help bubble containing information about the current folder pops up.
     79
     80To see the contents of any particular folder, click on that row in the
     81folder list.  The message list appears at the right, maybe after a slight
     82pause.
     83
     84You can also use the numeric keys 0..9 to change the current folder
     85to one of the first 10 folders in the list ('0' for the first folder,
     86'1' for the second, etc.).  If the key you press applies to the current
     87folder, the message list will be refreshed instead.
     88
     89Double-clicking an entry in the list opens the [[fo_w| configuration window ]]
     90where you can edit the properties of the selected folder or group.
     91
     92=== Main window – Message list ===
     93The message list can have upto eight columns, the contents being
     94set in the [[Configuration#FixLists| lists ]] configuration.  You can also use the context menu
     95(click RMB on the column headings) to have some columns temporary enabled
     96or disabled.
     97
     98'''Message status'''
     99     One or more icons showing the status of the message.

     149 ||||  Messages marked as spam.||
     150
     151'''Sender/Recipient'''
     152     E-mail address or, in this case, the name of the sender or
     153     recipient of the message, depending on the type of mailbox.  If
     154     the message was sent to several people at the same time, a little
     155     icon appears in front of the name, showing three tiny heads.
     156     [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/status/status_group)]]
     157
     158'''Subject'''
     159     Subject of the message.  When the messages are sorted according
     160     to the subject, the prefixes Re: and AW: are ignored.
     161
     162'''Date'''
     163     The date the message was written, calculated according to the
     164     local time (for you).  For this to work, both you and the sender
     165     must have set your correct [[co00| timezone ]], and the system date and
     166     time must be correct on both ends.
     167
     168'''Filename'''
     169     Name of the file containing the message.
     170
     171'''Reply address'''
     172     Contents of the "Reply-To:" header in the message.  If this is
     173     missing, then the sender's address is given (the "From:" header).
     174
     175'''Size'''
     176     Size of the message.
     177
     178'''Date sent/received'''
     179     The date the message was sent or received, depending on the type
     180     of mailbox.  Again, for this to work properly, both you and the
     181     sender must have set your correct [[co00| timezone ]], and the system
     182     date and time must be correct on both ends.
     183
     184
     185The column widths can be adjusted by using the mouse to drag the
     186thin lines separating the column headings in the message list itself.
     187The order of the columns can be modified by dragging the column headings
     188sideways.
     189
     190A little arrow in the one of the column headings shows how the
     191messages are sorted.  One click on a column heading causes the messages
     192to be sorted according to this property.  A second click on the same
     193heading reverses the order of sorting (Z->A instead of A->Z).  To set
     194the second sort key, keep the Shift key pressed while clicking on the
     195column heading.  These changes are only temporary; if you want to make
     196them permanent you must do this in the [[fo_w| folder settings ]] window.
     197
     198If you "park" the mouse pointer over the list for some seconds, a
     199help bubble containing information about the current message pops up.
     200
     201A double click on an entry in the list opens a [[re_w| Read window ]] and
     202displays the corresponding message.  You can use the mouse to move
     203messages to another folder.  Click on an entry and drag down (holding
     204the left mouse button) to mark a block of messages.  Then click and
     205[[drag| drag ]] the marked block to the left, into the folder list, and drop it
     206onto the chosen folder.
     207
     208=== Main window – Toolbar ===
     209The toolbar gives you easy access the most frequently used functions.
