    377378==== Write window – Internal editor ====
    410411=== Write window – Attachment sheet ===
    412 (See: [[Menus#FixWriteAttachments| Write window - Attachments menu ]])
     413You can add one or more files to your message.  This way you can send
     414binary files such as archives, pictures, etc. via e-mail.  You can choose
     415the method of encoding (MIME or UUencoded) and write a comment for each
     416file.  Files can be archived automatically to reduce the size of the
     417resulting message.
     419The attachment list contains five columns: filename, size (in bytes),
     420contents, encoding and description.  You can re-order the files using
     421Drag & Drop.
     424==== Buttons and Gadgets ====
     426'''Add file(s)'''
     427     You can select one or more files, which will be added as new
     428     attachments to the list.  YAM recognizes over 20 filetypes
     429     automatically and will fill in the '''MIME type''' field accordingly.
     432'''Pack & add'''
     433     By adding files this way, they will be archived with e.g. LhA, LZX
     434     or ZIP before being actually attached to the message.  Select the
     435     files you would like to add to the archive and then enter an
     436     archive name.  You can define the archiver in the configuration
     437     window, under [[co14| Miscellaneous ]].
     441     Removes the selected entries from the list.
     445     Displays the selected entry using one of the programs contained in
     446     the MIME viewers list.  The program used by default is MultiView.
     450     For normal use you should encode your files using MIME
     451     (Base64/QP).  YAM uses ''quoted printable'' encoding for text files and
     452     ''Base64'' for binary files.  If the recipient isn't able to decode
     453     messages in MIME format (because his mailer does not support
     454     this), you can also ''UUencode'' the files.  Messages containing
     455     UUencoded files are still in MIME '''multipart/mixed format''', but
     456     those attachments can be extracted from the message using a
     457     UUdecoder such as '''UUxT'''.  A message generated by YAM may contain
     458     UUencoded attachments as well as attachments in Base64 format.
     461'''MIME type'''
     462     As long as YAM recognizes the filetype of the attachment, the
     463     correct MIME type will be inserted automatically, otherwise the
     464     default setting ('''application/octet-stream''') will be used.  Before
     465     defining a new MIME type, please check that is isn't already part
     466     of the pop-up list.
     468     Additional file types defined in the [[co11| MIME configuration ]] are
     469     also used automatically.
     471     Example:  image/gif
     475     Here you can enter a comment about the actual attachment.
     477     Example:  Picture from our summer holidays (GIF format)
    415480=== Write window – Options sheet ===
     482The items in the '''Options''' menu correspond to the buttons on this sheet.
     484The layout of this sheet is:
     486                    _________________________________________________
     487          Copies to|_______________________________________________|^|
     488   Hidden copies to|_______________________________________________|^|
     489               From|_______________________________________________|^|
     490           Reply to|_______________________________________________|^|
     491  Additional header|_________________________________________________|
     493      `Send options`           ` Signature`            `Security`
     495==== Header fields ====
     497'''Copies to'''
     498     The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message.
     499     See also the explanation about the '''To:''' field given for the
     500     [[wr00| Message sheet ]].
     503'''Hidden copies to'''
     504     The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message;
     505     however, unlike the recipients listed in '''Copies to''', they won't
     506     appear in the message headers.  This is useful if you want to
     507     send someone a copy of a message without the other recipient(s)
     508     knowing.
     512     Pretty obvious, really!  YAM will fill this in with your address,
     513     but you might want to change the way your real name appears.
     516'''Reply to'''
     517     This setting is also valid only for the current message and will
     518     be inserted instead of the usual "Reply-To:" address as specified
     519     in the program settings.  Leave this blank unless it needs to be
     520     different from the e-mail address in the "From:" header.
     523'''Additional header'''
     524     If for any reason it should become necessary to add one or more
     525     special header lines to a message, you can enter these here.
     526     Several lines must be separated by inserting '\n'.  YAM will
     527     prepend the entered headers with '''X-YAM-Header-''' in the resulting
     528     message.
     530     Example:  Keywords: Amiga, YAM\nPassword: CuriosityKilledTheCat
     533==== Send options ====
     535'''Delete after sending'''
     536     Activate this option if you want the message to be deleted right
     537     after being transmitted, instead of being copied to the 'Sent'
     538     folder.
     541'''Disposition Notification'''
     542     Activate this option to request the recipient's e-mail program to
     543     let you know about what the recipient did with your message, e.g.
     544     if the message has been read by the recipient or if the recipient
     545     has deleted or forwarded it.  Please note that there are only a
     546     handful of e-mail programs which support this function, as well as
     547     the fact that the recipient might forbid the sending of any status
     548     report on e-mails.  Therefore, not getting any information even with
     549     this option in use does not necessarily mean that the message has
     550     not been read.  The command to send a status report is contained
     551     in the '''Disposition-Notification-To:''' header field.  At the time of
     552     writing this document, the Internet standard for Message Disposition
     553     Notifications (MDN) was still being formulated.
     556'''Add personal info'''
     557     Check this option to create a special '''X-SenderInfo:''' header
     558     containing personal data like your postal address, phone number,
     559     homepage, date of birth or URL of your picture.  If the recipient
     560     works with YAM too, (s)he will be able to create an address book
     561     entry and fill it with your data.  To get this to work, add an
     562     entry in your address book containing your data (YAM will find
     563     your entry based on the email address).  If one exists, enter
     564     the WWW address of a small photo of yourself in the "address book"
     565     section of the configuration.
     569     Specify here how important the message is for the recipient.
     570     Messages noted as important will usually be displayed with an
     571     exclamation mark in the status line and put into first place by
     572     automatic mail sorting.  The level of importance is stored in
     573     the '''Importance:''' header.
     576==== Signature ====
     578Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative
     579signatures, or switch it off completely for this message.
     582==== Security ====
     584Select here which security measures you want to take for this message.
     586    none: Normal mail transfer.\\
     587    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.\\
     588    encrypt: The message will be encrypted using the recipient's PGP key and saved in multipart/encrypted format.\\
     589    sign and encrypt: This is a combination of the two previous options, allowing the recipient to check the sender's identity.\\
     590    send anonymously: The mail will be sent using an ANON service, so the sender will stay anonymous.\\
     591    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.\\
     593Further information about PGP and security issues can be found in the
     594[[pgp| PGP ]] and [[co09| Configuration/Security ]] chapters.
    417596=== Write window – Glossary ===
     598YAM's Glossary acts as a place to collect blocks of text which you
     599may use fairly frequently, such as templates for letters, greeting
     600phrases or frequently asked questions.  The text can be as long as
     601desired, extending over several lines.  Using the '''Edit/Glossary''' menu
     602item or the <RAmiga-D> shortcut you can go straight from the
     603[[#FixEdit| internal editor ]] into the glossary.  Each entry has a name (e.g. "ys"
     604for "Yours sincerely") which you can see in the left-hand part of the
     605window.  Click on the name and you can edit the entry in the right-hand
     606side of the window.  A double click on the name pastes the text block at
     607the current cursor position and then closes the window.
     610==== Function of the buttons ====
     613     Creates a new entry in the glossary.
     616'''Add selection'''
     617     Creates a new entry in the glossary using the block marked in the
     618     text editor.  If no block is currently marked, YAM will try to
     619     paste the contents of the clipboard.
     623     Deletes the selected entry from the glossary.
     627     Pastes the highlighted entry into the text editor, at the current
     628     cursor position.
