    55The following pages are explaining the use of YAM based on the different windows it presents to the user during its use.
    66
    7 == Main window ==
    8 How to receive and send mail, copy it, etc.
    9 
    10 YAM's main window is laid out as shown:

    13    Menu bar: [[Menus#FixMainProject| Project ]] [[Menus#FixMainEdit| Edit ]] [[Menus#FixMainNavigation| Navigation ]] [[Menus#FixMainFolder| Folder ]] [[Menus#FixMainMessage| Message ]] [[Menus#FixMainSettings| Settings ]] [[Menus#FixMainScripts| Scripts ]] [[Menus#FixMainHelp| Help ]]

    21   ||                 ||      This shows the contents         ||
    22   ||                 ||      of the selected folder          ||

    27   ||                 ||                                      ||
    28 
    29 === Main window – Folder list ===
    30 The following six standard 'mailbox' folders are always present:
    31 
    32 '''Incoming'''
    33      This mailbox holds new messages addressed to you.  Whenever
    34      you download new mail, this is where the new messages will go
    35      initially.  You can, however, redistribute incoming messages
    36      to other folders, as desired, using [[co03| filters ]].
    37 
    38 '''Outgoing'''
    39      This mailbox holds the messages which you have written and which
    40      you intend to transmit the next time you go online.
    41 
    42 '''Sent'''
    43      Here you can see the messages which you have already sent.
    44      Messages are moved to this box (from 'Outgoing') when they are
    45      actually transmitted.  Again, you can use [[co03| filters ]] to transfer
    46      sent messages to other folders.
    47 
    48 '''Trash'''
    49      This box contains messages marked for deletion.  Normally messages
    50      are not actually deleted from the hard disk until you quit YAM.
    51      This allows you to recover messages deleted earlier in the session.
    52 
    53 '''Drafts'''
    54 
    55 '''Spam'''
    56 
    57 Using the [[Menus#FixMainFolder| folder menu ]] you can create more folders to hold messages
    58 which you have received and/or sent, so you can arrange the mails in
    59 whatever way you like, including arranging them in groups.
    60 
    61 The folder list can have upto five columns: Name of the folder,
    62 number of messages (in total, new or unread) as well as the size of
    63 the folder.  Which of these columns are actually shown depends on how
    64 you set up [[Configuration#FixLists| lists ]] in the configuration; you can also use the context
    65 menu (click RMB on the column headings) to have some columns temporary
    66 enabled or disabled.  The column widths can be adjusted by using the
    67 mouse to drag the thin lines separating the column headings in the
    68 folder list itself.  The order of the columns can be modified by
    69 dragging the column headings sideways.
    70 
    71 The folders themselves can be rearranged by [[drag| Drag&Drop ]].
    72 
    73 If the name of the folder is shown in white, this means that the box
    74 contains new or unread mail.  When the numerical indication is missing,
    75 this shows that the folder has not been scanned, which saves storage
    76 space.
    77 
    78 The coloring of folder groups is special: they always appear in white,
    79 as in "Personal".  If a folder in a group contains new or unread mail,
    80 the name of the group will show up as bold, as in "'''Personal'''".
    81 
    82 If you "park" the mouse pointer over the list for some seconds, a
    83 help bubble containing information about the current folder pops up.
    84 
    85 To see the contents of any particular folder, click on that row in the
    86 folder list.  The message list appears at the right, maybe after a slight
    87 pause.
    88 
    89 You can also use the numeric keys 0..9 to change the current folder
    90 to one of the first 10 folders in the list ('0' for the first folder,
    91 '1' for the second, etc.).  If the key you press applies to the current
    92 folder, the message list will be refreshed instead.
    93 
    94 Double-clicking an entry in the list opens the [[fo_w| configuration window ]]
    95 where you can edit the properties of the selected folder or group.
    96 
    97 === Main window – Message list ===
    98 The message list can have upto eight columns, the contents being
    99 set in the [[Configuration#FixLists| lists ]] configuration.  You can also use the context menu
    100 (click RMB on the column headings) to have some columns temporary enabled
    101 or disabled.
    102 
    103 '''Message status'''
    104      One or more icons showing the status of the message.
    105 [[=#FixStatus]]
    106  ||   Message status            ||    Icon     ||

    154  ||||  Messages marked as spam.||
    155 
    156 '''Sender/Recipient'''
    157      E-mail address or, in this case, the name of the sender or
    158      recipient of the message, depending on the type of mailbox.  If
    159      the message was sent to several people at the same time, a little
    160      icon appears in front of the name, showing three tiny heads.
    161      [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/status/status_group)]]
    162 
    163 '''Subject'''
    164      Subject of the message.  When the messages are sorted according
    165      to the subject, the prefixes Re: and AW: are ignored.
    166 
    167 '''Date'''
    168      The date the message was written, calculated according to the
    169      local time (for you).  For this to work, both you and the sender
    170      must have set your correct [[co00| timezone ]], and the system date and
    171      time must be correct on both ends.
    172 
    173 '''Filename'''
    174      Name of the file containing the message.
    175 
    176 '''Reply address'''
    177      Contents of the "Reply-To:" header in the message.  If this is
    178      missing, then the sender's address is given (the "From:" header).
    179 
    180 '''Size'''
    181      Size of the message.
    182 
    183 '''Date sent/received'''
    184      The date the message was sent or received, depending on the type
    185      of mailbox.  Again, for this to work properly, both you and the
    186      sender must have set your correct [[co00| timezone ]], and the system
    187      date and time must be correct on both ends.
    188 
    189 
    190 The column widths can be adjusted by using the mouse to drag the
    191 thin lines separating the column headings in the message list itself.
    192 The order of the columns can be modified by dragging the column headings
    193 sideways.
    194 
    195 A little arrow in the one of the column headings shows how the
    196 messages are sorted.  One click on a column heading causes the messages
    197 to be sorted according to this property.  A second click on the same
    198 heading reverses the order of sorting (Z->A instead of A->Z).  To set
    199 the second sort key, keep the Shift key pressed while clicking on the
    200 column heading.  These changes are only temporary; if you want to make
    201 them permanent you must do this in the [[fo_w| folder settings ]] window.
    202 
    203 If you "park" the mouse pointer over the list for some seconds, a
    204 help bubble containing information about the current message pops up.
    205 
    206 A double click on an entry in the list opens a [[re_w| Read window ]] and
    207 displays the corresponding message.  You can use the mouse to move
    208 messages to another folder.  Click on an entry and drag down (holding
    209 the left mouse button) to mark a block of messages.  Then click and
    210 [[drag| drag ]] the marked block to the left, into the folder list, and drop it
    211 onto the chosen folder.
    212 
    213 === Main window – Toolbar ===
    214 The toolbar gives you easy access the most frequently used functions.
    215 
    216    || 1 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Read_S)]]|| 2 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Edit_S)]]|| 3 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Move_S)]]|| 4 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Delete_S)]]|| 5 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_GetAddr_S)]]||  || 6 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_NewMail_S)]]|| 7 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Reply_S)]]|| 8 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Forward_S)]]||  || 9 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_GetMail_S)]]||10 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_SendAll_S)]]||  ||11 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Spam_S)]]||12 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Filter_S)]]||13 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Find_S)]]||14 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_AddrBook_S)]]||15 [[Image(http://yam.ch/export/HEAD/trunk/resources/themes/default/toolbar/tb_Config_S)]]||
    217 
    218 The table shows the equivalences between buttons (position and
    219 label), keyboard shortcuts and menu commands.  You can choose whether
    220 to show icons, labels or both on the buttons: see [[mam4| Settings/MUI ]].

    243 
    244 
    245 Additional features are available by clicking a toolbar button while
    246 holding down a certain qualifier key:
    247 
    248  Shift + [Delete]    Immediately deletes the messages\\
    249  Shift + [Reply]     Forces a private reply (address in the "From:" field is used)\\
    250  Shift + [Forward]   Bounces the message\\
    251  Shift + [Get]       Starts a mail exchange\\
    252  Shift + [Filter]    Filters the active message(s) only\\
    253  Alt   + [Reply]     Forces a mailing list reply (address in the "Reply-To:" field is used)\\
    254  Ctrl  + [Reply]     Omits quoting of the original message\\
    255  Ctrl  + [Forward]   Omits forwarding of the attachments\\
    256 
    257 ----
    258 
    259 == Write window ==
    260 Writing e-mail messages.
    261 
    262 This window will appear when you choose to write a new message or
    263 answer or forward an already existing message.  You can open TWO Write
    264 windows at a time.  The Write window consists of three sheets, laid out
    265 as 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 [[#FixEdit| internal editor ]] which you                 ||
    274   ||||||            can use to enter your message.                           ||
    275 
    276   `Send now`     `Send later`        `Hold`         `Cancel`
    277 
    278 These 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]]
    308 === Write window – Message sheet ===
    309 
    310 Above 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

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

    409 
    410 [[=#FixWriteAttachments]]
    411 === Write window – Attachment sheet ===
    412 
    413 You can add one or more files to your message.  This way you can send
    414 binary files such as archives, pictures, etc. via e-mail.  You can choose
    415 the method of encoding (MIME or UUencoded) and write a comment for each
    416 file.  Files can be archived automatically to reduce the size of the
    417 resulting message.
    418 
    419 The attachment list contains five columns: filename, size (in bytes),
    420 contents, encoding and description.  You can re-order the files using
    421 Drag & Drop.
    422 
    423 
    424 ==== Buttons and Gadgets ====
    425 
    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.
    430 
    431 
    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 ]].
    438 
    439 
    440 '''Delete'''
    441      Removes the selected entries from the list.
    442 
    443 
    444 '''Display'''
    445      Displays the selected entry using one of the programs contained in
    446      the MIME viewers list.  The program used by default is MultiView.
    447 
    448 
    449 '''Encoding'''
    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.
    459 
    460 
    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.
    467 
    468      Additional file types defined in the [[co11| MIME configuration ]] are
    469      also used automatically.
    470 
    471      Example:  image/gif
    472 
    473 
    474 '''Description'''
    475      Here you can enter a comment about the actual attachment.
    476 
    477      Example:  Picture from our summer holidays (GIF format)
    478 
    479 [[=#FixWriteOptions]]
    480 === Write window – Options sheet ===
    481 
    482 The items in the '''Options''' menu correspond to the buttons on this sheet.
    483 
    484 The layout of this sheet is:
    485 {{{
    486                     _________________________________________________
    487           Copies to|_______________________________________________|^|
    488    Hidden copies to|_______________________________________________|^|
    489                From|_______________________________________________|^|
    490            Reply to|_______________________________________________|^|
    491   Additional header|_________________________________________________|
    492 }}}
    493       `Send options`           ` Signature`            `Security`
    494 
    495 ==== Header fields ====
    496 
    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 ]].
    501 
    502 
    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.
    509 
    510 
    511 '''From'''
    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.
    514 
    515 
    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.
    521 
    522 
    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.
    529 
    530      Example:  Keywords: Amiga, YAM\nPassword: CuriosityKilledTheCat
    531 
    532 
    533 ==== Send options ====
    534 
    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.
    539 
    540 
    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.
    554 
    555 
    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.
    566 
    567 
    568 '''Importance'''
    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.
    574 
    575 
    576 ==== Signature ====
    577 
    578 Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative
    579 signatures, or switch it off completely for this message.
    580 
    581 
    582 ==== Security ====
    583 
    584 Select here which security measures you want to take for this message.
    585 
    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.\\
    592 
    593 Further information about PGP and security issues can be found in the
    594 [[pgp| PGP ]] and [[co09| Configuration/Security ]] chapters.
    595 
    596 === Write window – Glossary ===
    597 
    598 YAM's Glossary acts as a place to collect blocks of text which you
    599 may use fairly frequently, such as templates for letters, greeting
    600 phrases or frequently asked questions.  The text can be as long as
    601 desired, extending over several lines.  Using the '''Edit/Glossary''' menu
    602 item 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"
    604 for "Yours sincerely") which you can see in the left-hand part of the
    605 window.  Click on the name and you can edit the entry in the right-hand
    606 side of the window.  A double click on the name pastes the text block at
    607 the current cursor position and then closes the window.
    608 
    609 
    610 ==== Function of the buttons ====
    611 
    612 '''New'''
    613      Creates a new entry in the glossary.
    614 
    615 
    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.
    620 
    621 
    622 '''Delete'''
    623      Deletes the selected entry from the glossary.
    624 
    625 
    626 '''Paste'''
    627      Pastes the highlighted entry into the text editor, at the current
    628      cursor position.
