    257259== Write window == 
    258260Writing e-mail messages. 
    259261 
     262This window will appear when you choose to write a new message or 
     263answer or forward an already existing message.  You can open TWO Write 
     264windows at a time.  The Write window consists of three sheets, laid out 
     265as shown below.  The menu bar is the same for each sheet. 
     266 
     267 
     268   Menu bar: [[Menus#FixWriteText| Text ]] [[Menus#FixWriteEdit| Edit ]] [[Menus#FixWriteAttachments| Attachments ]] [[Menus#FixWriteOptions| Options ]] 
     269 
     270  ||      [[#FixWriteMessage|  Message  ]]     ||  [[#FixWriteAttachments| Attachments ]]   ||    [[#FixWriteOptions|  Options  ]]     || 
     271  |||||| || 
     272  ||||||            The big text edit field on the 'Message'                 || 
     273  ||||||            sheet is the [[edit| internal editor ]] which you                 || 
     274  ||||||            can use to enter your message.                           || 
     275 
     276  `Send now`     `Send later`        `Hold`         `Cancel` 
     277 
     278These four buttons appear at the bottom of each sheet: 
     279 
     280 
     281'''Send now''' 
     282     Prepares the message for sending, moves it to the Outgoing folder 
     283     and tries to send the mail at once.  For this option to work 
     284     correctly, there must be a TCP/IP stack running and online. 
     285 
     286 
     287'''Send later''' 
     288     Prepares the message for sending and copies it to the Outgoing 
     289     folder.  Use this button when working offline. 
     290 
     291 
     292'''Hold''' 
     293     The message will be prepared as described in '''Send later''' and copied 
     294     to the Outgoing folder, but will be held back and NOT sent.  Use 
     295     this button for unfinished messages, e.g. if you'd like to make 
     296     some additions to the e-mail at a later time, and not risk them to 
     297     be sent out by mistake. 
     298 
     299 
     300'''Cancel''' 
     301     Use this button if you've changed your mind.  '''BEWARE:''' All input 
     302     made in this window will be lost.  But don't worry, a security 
     303     requester will popup before YAM really discards any modifications 
     304     you have made.  (It won't show up if you haven't made any 
     305     modifications in the message itself, though). 
     306 
     307[[=#FixWriteMessage]] 
    260308=== Write window – Message sheet === 
    261309 
     310Above the large [[edit| text editor ]] area there are two header fields and a toolbar. 
     311 
     312 
     313'''To''' 
     314     Insert here the main recipient you wish to send the actual message 
     315     to.  You can use names or aliases from the address book or even 
     316     full e-mail addresses in case the recipient does not exist in the 
     317     address book.  If you wish to enter several recipients, you have to 
     318     separate them by inserting commas. 
     319 
     320     There are several ways of importing here any recipient which can 
     321     be found in your address book -- just select the method you feel 
     322     more comfortable with: 
     323 
     324       a. click on the pop-up button to the right, thereby opening the 
     325          address book.  Now you can either double click on any entry 
     326          you want, or [[drag| drag ]] it over to the text field holding the left 
     327          mouse button. 
     328 
     329       b. while the address book window is open, you can click the '''To:''' 
     330          button there to automatically add the current entry to the 
     331          '''To:''' field of your message.  To add several recipients, just 
     332          select them one by one and click the '''To:''' button in turn. 
     333 
     334       c. lastly, a newly introduced and more elegant method is to just 
     335          start typing the alias, first name or email address of your 
     336          recipient in the '''To:''' field.  This way you are quickly 
     337          presented with a dropdown list of the possible matches, taken 
     338          from your address book. 
     339 
     340          <Shift-Return> adds only the recipient address and drops the 
     341          real name, whilst pressing <Return> without selecting a recipient 
     342          will add the first match in the dropdown list.  Both techniques 
     343          can be combined. 
     344 
     345     If YAM cannot find a name or alias you've inserted manually into 
     346     the '''To:''' field, you will get an error report as soon as you try to 
     347     send [later] or hold your message.  Please double check your 
     348     spelling, or just use one of the selection methods outlined above. 
     349 
     350     Example: 
     351 
     352            jdoe, boss@work.whyme.com 
     353 
     354 
     355'''Subject''' 
     356     What the mail is all about.  When a mail is answered, there will be 
     357     a '''Re:''' inserted in front of the original subject, whereas when 
     358     forwarded a '''(fwd)''' will be added at the end.

     379YAM uses the efficient MUI class TextEditor.mcc for message 
     380handling.  Many aspects of the editor, such as keybindings, 
     381spellchecking or fonts can be changed in the '''TextEditor''' sheet of the 
     382[[mam4| MUI configuration ]].  Although you can modify the keybindings, here 
     383is a list of the important default settings in TextEditor 15.9: 
     384 
     385 
     386        <Control-Up>         go to the start of the text\\ 
     387        <Control-Down>       go to the end of the text\\ 
     388        <Control-Left>       go to the start of the line\\ 
     389        <Control-Right>      go to the end of the line\\ 
     390        <Alt-Up>             previous page\\ 
     391        <Alt-Down>           next page\\
