    123130YAM uses the efficient MUI class TextEditor.mcc for message
    124131handling.  Many aspects of the editor, such as keybindings,
    125132spellchecking or fonts can be changed in the '''TextEditor''' sheet of the
    126 [[mam4| MUI configuration ]].  Although you can modify the keybindings, here
     133[[Menus#FixSettingsMui| MUI configuration ]].  Although you can modify the keybindings, here
    127134is a list of the important default settings in TextEditor 15.9:

    162174The attachment list contains five columns: filename, size (in bytes),
    163175contents, encoding and description.  You can re-order the files using

    172184     automatically and will fill in the '''MIME type''' field accordingly.

    190 
    191 
    192 '''Encoding'''
    193      For normal use you should encode your files using MIME
    194      (Base64/QP).  YAM uses ''quoted printable'' encoding for text files and
    195      ''Base64'' for binary files.  If the recipient isn't able to decode
    196      messages in MIME format (because his mailer does not support
    197      this), you can also ''UUencode'' the files.  Messages containing
    198      UUencoded files are still in MIME '''multipart/mixed format''', but
    199      those attachments can be extracted from the message using a
    200      UUdecoder such as '''UUxT'''.  A message generated by YAM may contain
    201      UUencoded attachments as well as attachments in Base64 format.

    240 '''Copies to'''
    241      The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message.
    242      See also the explanation about the '''To:''' field given for the
    243      [[wr00| Message sheet ]].
    244 
    245 
    246 '''Hidden copies to'''
    247      The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message;
    248      however, unlike the recipients listed in '''Copies to''', they won't
    249      appear in the message headers.  This is useful if you want to
    250      send someone a copy of a message without the other recipient(s)
    251      knowing.
    252 
    253 
    254 '''From'''
    255      Pretty obvious, really!  YAM will fill this in with your address,
    256      but you might want to change the way your real name appears.
    257 
    258 
    259 '''Reply to'''
    260      This setting is also valid only for the current message and will
    261      be inserted instead of the usual "Reply-To:" address as specified
    262      in the program settings.  Leave this blank unless it needs to be
    263      different from the e-mail address in the "From:" header.

     237
     238'''Importance'''
     239     Specify here how important the message is for the recipient.
     240     Messages noted as important will usually be displayed with an
     241     exclamation mark in the status line and put into first place by
     242     automatic mail sorting.  The level of importance is stored in
     243     the '''Importance:''' header.
     244
     245'''Signature'''
     246    Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative
     247    signatures, or switch it off completely for this message.
     248
     249'''PGP security level'''
     250    Select here which security measures you want to take for this message.
     251
     252      none: Normal mail transfer.\\
     253      sign: The message will be signed with your PGP public key and saved in multipart/signed format.  The text of the message will be readable without PGP.\\
     254      encrypt: The message will be encrypted using the recipient's PGP key and saved in multipart/encrypted format.\\
     255      sign and encrypt: This is a combination of the two previous options, allowing the recipient to check the sender's identity.\\
     256      default: The mail will use whatever security measures have been selected for this recipient in the address book, or "none" if this recipient cannot be found there.\\

    283 
    284 '''Disposition Notification'''
    285      Activate this option to request the recipient's e-mail program to
    286      let you know about what the recipient did with your message, e.g.
    287      if the message has been read by the recipient or if the recipient
    288      has deleted or forwarded it.  Please note that there are only a
    289      handful of e-mail programs which support this function, as well as
    290      the fact that the recipient might forbid the sending of any status
    291      report on e-mails.  Therefore, not getting any information even with
    292      this option in use does not necessarily mean that the message has
    293      not been read.  The command to send a status report is contained
    294      in the '''Disposition-Notification-To:''' header field.  At the time of
    295      writing this document, the Internet standard for Message Disposition
    296      Notifications (MDN) was still being formulated.

    311 '''Importance'''
    312      Specify here how important the message is for the recipient.
    313      Messages noted as important will usually be displayed with an
    314      exclamation mark in the status line and put into first place by
    315      automatic mail sorting.  The level of importance is stored in

    323 
    324 
    325 === Security ===
    326 
    327 Select here which security measures you want to take for this message.
    328 
    329     none: Normal mail transfer.\\
    330     sign: The message will be signed with your PGP public key and saved in multipart/signed format.  The text of the message will be readable without PGP.\\
    331     encrypt: The message will be encrypted using the recipient's PGP key and saved in multipart/encrypted format.\\
    332     sign and encrypt: This is a combination of the two previous options, allowing the recipient to check the sender's identity.\\
    333     send anonymously: The mail will be sent using an ANON service, so the sender will stay anonymous.\\
    334     default: The mail will use whatever security measures have been selected for this recipient in the address book, or "none" if this recipient cannot be found there.\\

    339 [[=#FixGlossary]]
    340 == Write window – Glossary ==
    341 
    342 YAM's Glossary acts as a place to collect blocks of text which you
    343 may use fairly frequently, such as templates for letters, greeting
    344 phrases or frequently asked questions.  The text can be as long as
    345 desired, extending over several lines.  Using the '''Edit/Glossary''' menu
    346 item or the <RAmiga-D> shortcut you can go straight from the
    347 [[#FixEdit| internal editor ]] into the glossary.  Each entry has a name (e.g. "ys"
    348 for "Yours sincerely") which you can see in the left-hand part of the
    349 window.  Click on the name and you can edit the entry in the right-hand
    350 side of the window.  A double click on the name pastes the text block at
    351 the current cursor position and then closes the window.
    352 
    353 
    354 === Function of the buttons ===
    355 
    356 '''New'''

    358 
    359 
    360 '''Add selection'''
    361      Creates a new entry in the glossary using the block marked in the
    362      text editor.  If no block is currently marked, YAM will try to
    363      paste the contents of the clipboard.
    364 
    365 
    366 '''Delete'''
    367      Deletes the selected entry from the glossary.
    368 
    369 
    370 '''Paste'''
    371      Pastes the highlighted entry into the text editor, at the current
    372      cursor position.
