    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

    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\\
     392        <Alt-Left>           previous word\\
     393        <Alt-Right>          next word\\
     394        <RAmiga-x>           cut\\
     395        <RAmiga-c>           copy\\

     400        <Del>                delete the character\\
     401        <Shift-Backspace>    delete to start of line\\
     402        <Shift-Del>          delete to end of line\\
