    47      The message will be prepared as described in '''Send later''' and copied
    48      to the Outgoing folder, but will be held back and NOT sent.  Use
    49      this button for unfinished messages, e.g. if you'd like to make
    50      some additions to the e-mail at a later time, and not risk them to
    51      be sent out by mistake.

    167163You can add one or more files to your message.  This way you can send
     
    182178     attachments to the list.  YAM recognizes over 20 filetypes
    183179     automatically and will fill in the '''MIME type''' field accordingly.

    199195     Displays the selected entry using one of the programs contained in
    200196     the MIME viewers list.  The program used by default is MultiView.
    201 
    202 
    203 '''Encoding'''
    204      For normal use you should encode your files using MIME
    205      (Base64/QP).  YAM uses ''quoted printable'' encoding for text files and
    206      ''Base64'' for binary files.  If the recipient isn't able to decode
    207      messages in MIME format (because his mailer does not support
    208      this), you can also ''UUencode'' the files.  Messages containing
    209      UUencoded files are still in MIME '''multipart/mixed format''', but
    210      those attachments can be extracted from the message using a
    211      UUdecoder such as '''UUxT'''.  A message generated by YAM may contain
    212      UUencoded attachments as well as attachments in Base64 format.

    236 The items in the '''Options''' menu correspond to the buttons on this sheet.
    237 
    238 The layout of this sheet is:
    239 {{{
    240                     _________________________________________________
    241           Copies to|_______________________________________________|^|
    242    Hidden copies to|_______________________________________________|^|

    248 
    249 === Header fields ===
    250 
    251 '''Copies to'''
    252      The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message.
    253      See also the explanation about the '''To:''' field given for the
    254      [[#FixMessageSheet| Message sheet ]].
    255 
    256 
    257 '''Hidden copies to'''
    258      The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message;
    259      however, unlike the recipients listed in '''Copies to''', they won't
    260      appear in the message headers.  This is useful if you want to
    261      send someone a copy of a message without the other recipient(s)
    262      knowing.
    263 
    264 
    265 '''From'''
    266      Pretty obvious, really!  YAM will fill this in with your address,
    267      but you might want to change the way your real name appears.
    268 
    269 
    270 '''Reply to'''
    271      This setting is also valid only for the current message and will
    272      be inserted instead of the usual "Reply-To:" address as specified
    273      in the program settings.  Leave this blank unless it needs to be
    274      different from the e-mail address in the "From:" header.
    275 
     218The items in the [[Menus#FixWriteOptions|Options menu]] correspond to the buttons on this sheet.
     219
     220=== Options ===
    276221
    277222'''Additional header'''
     
    284229     Example:  Keywords: Amiga, YAM\nPassword: CuriosityKilledTheCat
    285230
     231'''Charset'''
     232
     233'''Importance'''
     234     Specify here how important the message is for the recipient.
     235     Messages noted as important will usually be displayed with an
     236     exclamation mark in the status line and put into first place by
     237     automatic mail sorting.  The level of importance is stored in
     238     the '''Importance:''' header.
     239
     240'''Signature'''
     241    Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative
     242    signatures, or switch it off completely for this message.
     243
     244'''PGP security level'''
     245    Select here which security measures you want to take for this message.
     246
     247      none: Normal mail transfer.\\
     248      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.\\
     249      encrypt: The message will be encrypted using the recipient's PGP key and saved in multipart/encrypted format.\\
     250      sign and encrypt: This is a combination of the two previous options, allowing the recipient to check the sender's identity.\\
     251      send anonymously: The mail will be sent using an ANON service, so the sender will stay anonymous.\\
     252      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.\\
     253
     254    Further information about PGP and security issues can be found in the
     255    [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| PGP ]] and [[Configuration#FixSecurity| Configuration/Security ]] chapters.

    293263
    294 
    295 '''Disposition Notification'''
    296      Activate this option to request the recipient's e-mail program to
    297      let you know about what the recipient did with your message, e.g.
    298      if the message has been read by the recipient or if the recipient
    299      has deleted or forwarded it.  Please note that there are only a
    300      handful of e-mail programs which support this function, as well as
    301      the fact that the recipient might forbid the sending of any status
    302      report on e-mails.  Therefore, not getting any information even with
    303      this option in use does not necessarily mean that the message has
    304      not been read.  The command to send a status report is contained
    305      in the '''Disposition-Notification-To:''' header field.  At the time of
    306      writing this document, the Internet standard for Message Disposition
    307      Notifications (MDN) was still being formulated.
     264'''Return receipt'''

    319276     section of the configuration.
    320 
    321 
    322 '''Importance'''
    323      Specify here how important the message is for the recipient.
    324      Messages noted as important will usually be displayed with an
    325      exclamation mark in the status line and put into first place by
    326      automatic mail sorting.  The level of importance is stored in
    327      the '''Importance:''' header.
    328 
    329 
    330 === Signature ===
    331 
    332 Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative
    333 signatures, or switch it off completely for this message.
    334 
    335 
    336 === Security ===
    337 
    338 Select here which security measures you want to take for this message.
    339 
    340     none: Normal mail transfer.\\
    341     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.\\
    342     encrypt: The message will be encrypted using the recipient's PGP key and saved in multipart/encrypted format.\\
    343     sign and encrypt: This is a combination of the two previous options, allowing the recipient to check the sender's identity.\\
    344     send anonymously: The mail will be sent using an ANON service, so the sender will stay anonymous.\\
    345     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.\\
    346 
    347 Further information about PGP and security issues can be found in the
    348 [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| PGP ]] and [[Configuration#FixSecurity| Configuration/Security ]] chapters.
    349 
    350 [[=#FixGlossary]]
    351 == Glossary ==
    352 
    353 YAM's Glossary acts as a place to collect blocks of text which you
    354 may use fairly frequently, such as templates for letters, greeting
    355 phrases or frequently asked questions.  The text can be as long as
    356 desired, extending over several lines.  Using the '''Edit/Glossary''' menu
    357 item or the <RAmiga-D> shortcut you can go straight from the
    358 [[#FixEdit| internal editor ]] into the glossary.  Each entry has a name (e.g. "ys"
    359 for "Yours sincerely") which you can see in the left-hand part of the
    360 window.  Click on the name and you can edit the entry in the right-hand
    361 side of the window.  A double click on the name pastes the text block at
    362 the current cursor position and then closes the window.
    363 
    364 
    365 === Function of the buttons ===
    366 
    367 '''New'''
    368      Creates a new entry in the glossary.
    369 
    370 
    371 '''Add selection'''
    372      Creates a new entry in the glossary using the block marked in the
    373      text editor.  If no block is currently marked, YAM will try to
    374      paste the contents of the clipboard.
    375 
    376 
    377 '''Delete'''
    378      Deletes the selected entry from the glossary.
    379 
    380 
    381 '''Paste'''
    382      Pastes the highlighted entry into the text editor, at the current
    383      cursor position.
