Configuración

YAM tiene un gran número de opciones, que pueden configurarse en la ventana de Configuración. Las opciones del programa están divididas por grupos que se pueden seleccionar mediante las palabras correspondientes en la parte izquierda de la ventana de Configuración. Además hay tres menús disponibles.

Primeros Pasos

Esta hoja contiene alguna información esencial necesaria para trabajar con YAM.

Configuración Mínima

Nombre Completo

Su nombre y apellidos. Por favor, preste atención en que este campo se rellene correctamente. NO utilice DO NOT use comillas en el nombre.

Ejemplo: John Doe

Dirección de correo

Esta es su dirección de correo, consistente en su <usuario>@<dominio>.

Ejemplo: jdoe@…

Servidor de Correo

La dirección de Internet (nombre del anfitrión o IP) del servidor de correo de su sistema. Este servidor, normalmente en un ordenador de su ISP (Proveedor de Servicios de Internet), debe ser capaz de trabajar con el protocolo POP3/SMTP.

Ejemplo: mail.example.com

Nombre de Usuario

El nombre de usuario para registrarse en el servidor de correo de su ISP.

Ejemplo: jdoe

Contraseña

La contraseña que le solicitará el servidor de correo. Esta contraseña es posiblemente aunque no necesariamente idéntica a la contraseña de registro en su ISP, y habitualmente diferencia entre mayúsculas y minúsculas.

Ejemplo: nguz56

Zona Horaria

Zona Horaria

La hora y fecha mostrada por YAM en la lista de mensajes siempre se convierte a su hora local. Esto garantiza el ordenado correcto de los mensajess procedentes de todo el mundo y por tanto con diferentes zonas horarias. La zona horaria es parte de la fecha del mensaje y especifíca la diferencia entre la hora local y la hora del Meridiano de Greenwich (GMT).

Ejemplos: GMT+01:00 (para Europa Central), GMT 00:00 (para el Reino Unido), GMT-05:00 (para Este de U.S.A p.ej. Nueva York)

Normalmente YAM adpotará la zona horaria de sus preferencias Locale, por lo que este selector estará deshabilitado.

Añadir ajuste de horario de verano

Esta opción se debe activar durante el horario de verano. Al hacerlo, se añadirá una hora para el valor de zona horaria. YAM cambia automáticamente a / desde el horario de verano si el soporte del sistema operativo de conmutación DST (por ejemplo AmigaOS4) o si una herramienta AutoDST como SetDST, FACTS o SummertimeGuard está instalada. Esto se indica si la casilla está sombreada.

Ejemplo: John Doe

TCP/IP

Aquí puede introducir la información necesaria para enviar correo, al igual que definir cuentas adicionales de POP3.

Enviar correo (SMTP)

A parte del servidor primario SMTP ya definido en ls sección de Primeros Pasos, aquí puede definir un número ilimitado de servidores SMTP; los nombres aparecen en la lista de la izquierda y haciendo click sobre uno de ellos nos muestra información detallada a la derecha. Observe que estas cuentas pueden ser para el mismo usuario en diferentes servidores, o diferentes usuarios en el mismo servidor. De cualquier manera, puede comprobar si tiene nuevo correo con un simple click del ratón. Pulse en [Nuevo] para insertar la información requerida para una cuenta nueva de correo. Con [Borrar] puede eliminar cuentas.

Servidor

La dirección de Internet del sistema al que le envía su correo. Este servidor, usualmente es un ordenador de su ISP (Proveedor de Servicios de Internet), debe ser capaz de procesar el protocolo SMTP.

Ejemplo: mail.example.com

Puerto

El número de puerto del servicio SMTP. El puerto standard es 25 para SMTP simple. En caso de utilizar conexiones SSL/TLS este puerto también puede ser 576 ó 456.

Ejemplo: 25

Servidor SMTP permite 8bit

Originalmente sólo el juego de caracteres US-ASCII estaban permitidos para el uso del correo electrónico, lo que significaba que los usuarios estaban forzados a utilizar vocales (p.ej., tenían que poner 'ae' en vez de 'ä'). La razón de esto es que muchos servidores sólo procesaban los primeros 7 bits y simplemente cortaban el octavo, paralizando el correo electrónico mientras lo hace. Este problema se resolvió introduciendo el MIME quoted-printable standard, que convierte todos los caractéres 'no autorizados' a 7 bit antes de transferir y los reconvierte en sus caractéres originales en la entrega. Los servidores de correo moderno no tiene problemas con los caractéres no US-ASCII, por lo que los mensajes no tienen que ser convertidos necesariamente. Si está completamente seguro de que su servidor soporta la transferencia de 8 bit, puede activar esta opción y ahorrar unos cuantos bits en la transferencia de correos. El mejor modo de saber si su servidor soporta esto es escribir un mensaje a usted mismo que contenga vocales modificadas y ver que ocurre.

Ejemplo: Yes

Usar SMTP AUTH

Esto le permite utilizar la autenticación SMTP si lo desea, por lo que YAM solicitará su servidor de correo para utilizar una capa adicional de autenticación como se documenta en RFC 2554. Usted tendrá que rellenar un par de campos de ID de usuario/contraseña en este caso. Si el servidor SMTP no admite SMTP AUTH, recibirá un mensaje de error al intentar enviar correo electrónico. Pregunte a su proveedor de Internet en caso de duda.

Ejemplo: No

Nombre de Usuario

Cuando utilice SMTP AUTH aquí puede insertar el nombre de usuario para la autentificación SMTP. En la mayoría de los casos será idéntica al nombre de usuario de su dirección de correo electrónico. Aunque, hay excepciones, verifique las instrucciones de su ISP (YAM construye en nombre de cuenta en el formato <Nombre de Usuario>@<servidor>).

Ejemplo: jdoe

Contraseña

La contraseña que se enviará al servidor de correo a la hora de registrarse. Puede dejar este campo vacío por razones de seguridad; si lo hace, la contraseña se le requerirá cuando envíe nuevo correo. Recuerde también que la contraseña diferencia entre mayúsculas y minúsculas.

Ejemplo: nguz56

Usar SMTP TLSv1/SSLv3

Si su servidro SMTP soporta TLSv1/SSLv3, activa conexiones seguras. YAM conectará via librería AmiSSL con el servidor SMTP y encriptará cada transferencia.

Ejemplo: No

Recibir correo (POP3)

A parte de lo definido para el servidor POP3 primario en la sección de Primeros pasos, aquí puede configurar un número ilimitado de servidores POP3; los nombres aparecen en la lista de la izquierda y haciendo click sombre uno de ellos le facilita información detallada a la derecha. Observe que estas cuentas pueden ser para el mismo usuario con diferentes servidores, o diferentes usuarios en un mismo servidor. De cualquier modo, puede comprobar nuevo correo con un simple click del ratón. Pulse en [Nuevo] para insertar la información requerida para una cuenta nueva de correo. Con [Borrar] puede eliminar cuentas.

Servidor

La dirección de Internet del sistema al que le envía su correo. Este servidor, usualmente es un ordenador de su ISP (Proveedor de Servicios de Internet), debe ser capaz de procesar protocolo POP3.

Ejemplo: pop.example.com

Puerto

El número de puerto del servicio POP3. El puerto standard es 110 para POP3 simple. En caso de usar conexiones SSL/TLS este puerto puede ser también 995.

Ejemplo: 110

Nombre de Usuario

El nombre de usuario para la autenticación en el servidor POP especificado.. En la mayoría de los casos será idéntico al nombre de usuario de su dirección de correo. Aunque, hay excepciones, compruebe las instrucciones de su ISP (YAM construye en nombre de cuenta en el formato <Nombre de Usuario>@<servidor>). Ejemplo: jdoe

Contraseña

La contraseña que se enviará al servidor de correo a la hora de registrarse. Puede dejar este campo vacío por razones de seguridad; si lo hace, la contraseña se le requerirá cuando envíe nuevo correo. Recuerde también que la contraseña diferencia entre mayúsculas y minúsculas.

Ejemplo: nguz56

Activo

Habilite esta opción para tener la cuenta POP3 seleccionada a la hora de verificar la existencia de correo nuevo cada vez que utilice en botón de Obtener en la barra de herramientas, o la opción equivalente en el menú "Carpeta". Si no quiere que esta cuenta de correo sea comprobada automáticamente, deshabilite esta opción y en su vez utilice la opción del menú Carpeta/Comprobar cuenta de correo desde la ventana principal.

Ejemplo: Yes

Usar POP3 TLSv1/SSLv3

Active esta opción para utilizar el cifrado SSL basado en el marco del protocolo TLS como se describe en el RFC 2595. Esto añade seguridad adicional para evitar el espionaje típico y ataques de secuestro a los que POP comúnmente está sujeto, y usará el puerto 995 en lugar del habitual 110. La opción con STLS obligará al uso de la extensión STARTTLS POP3, añadiendo otra capa de seguridad a la comunicación, utilizando de nuevo el puerto 110. Si su servidor POP3 no admite nada de esto, usted recibirá un mensaje de error al comprobar si hay correo nuevo. Además, se requiere AmiSSL.

Ejemplo: Yes

Registrarse usando APOP

Normalmente, el nombre de usuario y la contraseña se transmiten como texto sin formato cuando se conecte a un servidor POP3. Bajo ciertas circunstancias, esto podría ser un riesgo para la seguridad, y por esta razón los servidores POP3 modernos admiten la autenticación APOP, que transmite el nombre de usuario y una contraseña cifrada con una clave que emite el servidor. Si su servidor POP3 no admite APOP usted recibirá un mensaje de error al comprobar si hay correo nuevo, en cuyo caso, deshabilite esta opción. También tenga en cuenta, que si su servidor POP3 admite TLS/SSL debe preferirlo, ya que también transmite el contenido de correo electrónico cifrado y no en texto plano.

Ejemplo: No

Borrar correo en el servidor

Si se activa esta opción, el nuevo correo será borrado después de descargarlo desde el servidor de correo. Se borrarán los mensajes sólo después de que hayan sido guardados con éxito en su equipo. Si la cuenta de POP3 la utilizan varias personas, o si desea acceder a su cuenta de nuevo más tarde desde otro equipo, esta opción se puede desactivar.

Ejemplo: Yes

Nuevo correo

Controle el modo de descarga de su correo.

Descargar

Pre-selección

Después de establecer conexión con el servidor POP3, se abrirá una ventana de preselección mostrando una lista de todos los correos nuevos existentes en el buzón de correo de POP3. Esto le permite decidir si descargar, borrar o dejar un mensaje en el servidor, de acuerdo con su tamaño, tópico o remitente. Para trabajar adecuadamente con la pre-selección, el servidor debe soportar el comando TOP que la mayoría de los servidores soportan. nunca: pre-selección es deshabilitado
mensajes grandes: sólo mensajes mayores que un tamaño definido por usted se mostrarán en la pre-selección
siempre: todos los mensajes se mostrarán en la pre-selección
siempre, sólo tamaño: todos los mensajes se mostrarán pero sólo con su tamaño. La ventana de este método es que bastante más rápido.

Ejemplo: siempre

Límite de Tamaño

Si pre-selección está habilitado, los mensajes que excedan del tamaño definido serán resaltados. De esta forma puede evitar descargar mensajes con anexos de gran tamaño. El tamaño se da en kilobytes. Si no quiere utilizar límite, simplemente introduzca '0'.

En el uso diario, se ha comprobado que la configuración de 'pre-selección = mensajes grandes' y 'límite de tamaño=100 kB' es ventajosa. Con estas preferencias, la ventana de pre-selección sólo aparecerá si al menos uno de los mensajes nuevos excede de los 100 kb en tamaño.

Ejemplo: 100

Ventana de Transferencia

Aquí puede decidir si quiere ver la ventana de transferencia mientras recibe o envía correo. Con automático sólo se abre si inicia manualmente la transferencia, permaneciendo cerrada si YAM comprueba correo nuevo automáticamente.

Ejemplo: nunca

Evitar duplicados

Si usted no elige que YAM borre el correo en el servidor después de la descarga, se descargará la próxima vez cuando YAM reciba su correo, por lo que le aparecerá cada mensaje dos veces en la carpeta de correo. Para evitar esto, active la opción de evitar duplicados y siempre que esté activa esta opción, YAM mantendrá un registro de todos los mensajes descargados en el archivo .uidl y utilizará comandos especiales del servidor POP3 para evitar la descarga del mismo mensaje dos veces. Si el servidor POP3 admite estos comandos UIDL, esta verificación se llevará a cabo con bastante rapidez. Si el servidor no admite estos comandos, YAM intentará leer el Mensaje-ID con el comando TOP en lugar de los comandos UIDL. En caso de que el servidor de correo no admita ninguno de estos comandos, esta opción debe estar desactivada.

Ejemplo: Yes

Actualizar estado de mensajes

Si esta opción está activada, los nuevos mensajes en la carpeta 'Entrante' serán marcados como 'no leídos' antes de descargar nuevo correo. De esta forma puede instantáneamente reconocer el correo nuevo que fue descargado la última vez que hizo la comprobación de correo.

Ejemplo: Yes

Operación Automática

Comprobar nuevo correo cada [xx] minutos

Here you can specify a time interval after which YAM will automatically recheck your mail server for new mail. To deactivate this option, simply select zero.

Ejemplo: 15 minutes

Descargar mensajes grandes

Whenever new mail is downloaded automatically (every x minutes or using ARexx), the selection window won't pop up since the user is likely to be working with another program at the time, or not in front of the computer at all. Mails exceeding the size limit won't be downloaded and will remain on the server if this option is not activated.

Ejemplo: No

Notificación

Requester

Once YAM has downloaded new mail, it will display a requester showing the number of new and deleted messages.

Ejemplo: Yes

Sound

Once YAM has downloaded new mail, it will play a sound file. The datatypes library is used for playing, so the sound file can be of any format (like AIFF or WAVE), as long as you have installed the appropriate datatypes. Click the small arrow (PLAY symbol) to test the sound.

Example: Data:Audio/Newmail.snd

Comando

This is a program to be executed when new mail arrives. Insert the command as you'd do at a command line interface. If it is an Arexx script, you have to put the 'RX' command in front of the name of the script.

Ejemplo: RX PROGDIR:rexx/Newmail.YAM

Filtros

The purpose of a mail filter is to process mail according to criteria defined by the user. Whenever a mail matches a specified pattern, it can trigger certain actions. Applications for the use of filters include

  • automatically moving mail from a mailing list to a specified folder
  • automatic processing of incoming inquiries by sending pre-defined answers
  • automatic deletion of unwanted spam (advertising by e-mail, a real pest nowadays)
  • automatic re-directing of mails to another recipient.

You can define theoretically an unlimited number of filters. The list on the left shows the names of all the filters defined so far. Click on a name to bring up its details on the right, spread across three sheets -- Options, Comparison and Action. Click on [New] to create a new filter or use [Delete] to delete one. Filters are executed in top-to-bottom order, therefore you should place filters that delete or move messages at the bottom of the list.

Opciones

Nombre

The filter's name is merely for recognition and not of any other use.

Filtro Remoto

With a remote filter, new email can be checked on the POP3 server without being downloaded completely. The POP3 server must support the TOP command to be able to process this kind of filter. In contrast to 'normal' filters, only the contents of the e-mail headers can be searched for certain patterns. For obvious reasons, functions like forwarding or moving e-mails cannot be used with remote filters. In addition, if remote filters are activated they might slow down downloading e-mail, but they are handy and powerful if used with care.

Aplicar a nuevo correo

Activate this option to have all new mail processed by this filter. Processing will start automatically after receiving new mail.

Aplicar a correo enviado

Activate this option to have all sent mail processed by this filter. Processing will be initiated automatically after sending mail.

Apply on request

If this option is activated, the filtering process will be started by clicking on the Filter button in the main window or by choosing 'Filter' from the 'Folder' menu. This way you can also process old messages which do not necessarily have to be in the Incoming folder.

Comparación

Buscar en

Here you can define what part of the e-mail should be scanned for the search pattern. If you want a field of the message header to be searched, you can choose one from the list which appears when clicking on the cycle gadget, or select 'Other field' and insert the name of the header field into the text field on the right side of the cycle gadget. If 'Message body' is selected, the whole message -except for the headers- will be searched. Please note that this type of full text search may take quite a long time when big mails are processed (YAM will have to decode mails in MIME format).

Ejemplo: 'Other field: X-Mailer'

Comparación

The instruction comprises the comparison operator and the search pattern.

YAM supports the following comparison operators:

  • = the text which is compared must match the search pattern
  • < the text must be "less" than the search pattern
  • > the text must be "greater than" the search pattern
  • <> the text must be different from the search pattern
  • IN the text must match pattern contained in the file which is specified in the text field to the right side of the comparison cycle gadget. Instead of a search pattern itself, the name of a file has to be inserted here, containing one or several lines of search patterns. In this way it is possible to create a so-called 'Killfile' containing a list of e-mail addresses. Click on the page icon to edit the file.

Note that the comparison operators '<' and '>' work differently according to the type of field. YAM knows that a message size or date is numeric and sorts these in numerical order, but for fields such as "Subject:", alphanumeric order is used as in a telephone directory, so James < Jim and 12 < 2.

The search pattern may contain AmigaDOS wildcards such as ?, #?, (a|b) or [abc]. Please note that the search pattern [YAM]#? will filter all messages beginning with Y, A or M. For filtering mails coming from a mailing list (for example, a mailing list related to YAM), you'd better use the search pattern #?YAM#? or have the filter compare the Reply-To: field with the address of the mailing list.

Ejemplo: '= YAM 1.3.#?'

Dirección/Nombre

If you make the filter search a header field containing an e-mail address, you can specify here whether the search pattern should be processed on the actual address (e.g. jdoe@…) or the author's name (e.g. 'John Doe').

Case sensitive

Activate this option if you want the filtering process to distinguish between normal and capital letters.

Substring search

If the search pattern consists of only a part of the header field which is to be searched through, you must activate this option - YAM will then complete the search pattern with #? internally.

It is possible to combine two search criteria. The cycle gadget lets you select how this is to be done:

none don't use a second criterion and both criteria must be satisfied or at least one of the two criteria must be met exclusive or either one or the other of the two criteria must apply, but not both

Acción

Bounce

Activate this option to have mail matching the search criteria bounced to another recipient -- for instance, you might use this to automatically resend certain email to your mailbox at work.

The new recipient's e-mail address must be inserted into the text field next to the option.

Example: jdoe@…

Forward

Activate this option when you want e-mail matching the search criteria to be forwarded to another person. The new recipient's e-mail address must be inserted into the text field next to the option.

Reply

If this option is activated, YAM will send an automatic reply to any mail matching the search pattern. Enter the filename containing the auto-answer text into the text field next to this option.

Example: PROGDIR:Auto-Texts/Answer1.txt

Execute

If this option is activated, an external program will be executed whenever an email matches the search criterion. YAM will send the path of the e-mail to the external program as a starting parameter. Insert the command line into the text field next to this option.

Please note that if you want an ARexx script to be executed, you will have to explicitely put the 'RX' command first.

Example: 'rx PROGDIR:Rexx/Subscribe.rexx'

Play sound

Activate this option to have a sound played whenever a message matches the search pattern. The sound file name is to be inserted into the text field next to this option. YAM uses the datatypes library for playing the sound. Click the small arrow (PLAY symbol) to test the sound.

Example: Data:Audio/Ihatespam.wav

Move

If you activate this option, YAM will move any email matching the search pattern to another folder. You can select the folder with the pop-up button.

Delete

If this option is activated, all messages matching the search pattern will be deleted. (You probably guessed that... ;) )

Don't download

If this option is activated, any message matching the search pattern will not be downloaded from the mail server. You can use a remote filter together with this option if several people share the same POP3 account.

Spam

Setup of the spam filter.

Activate spam filter

Activates the spam filter, believe it or not :)

Reset Spam training data

Resets the Spam training data. Should only be necessary in rare circumstances.

Check new mail for spam content

Automatically checks new mail for spam content.

Addressbook whitelisted

If a mail has an From: address that exist in your addressbook, it will never be considered as spam.

Mark mail as spam when moved to Spam folder

Any mail that is manually moved to the Spam folder are automatically marked as spam.

Mark new spam as read

This option will automatically mark new spam mails as read.

Move 'Not Spam' back to 'Incoming'

Will move mails that has been wrongfully detected as spam or mails that have manually been marked as 'Not Spam' back to 'Incoming' folder.

Apply filters

Applies all your defined filters to mail that is moved back to the 'Incoming' folder.

Read

Layout options

Message header layout

Cabecera

If 'full' is selected, all the headers will be displayed. Select 'none' if you don't want to see any header. When you switch to 'selected', you can specify yourself which header fields should be visible in the Read window. For specifying the fields you can use any AmigaDOS pattern. The FROM, TO, DATE and SUBJECT fields are displayed by default. The header layout can also be changed (temporarily) in the Read window itself.

Ejemplo: '(From|Subject|Date|X-Mailer)'

Info del Remitente

If a mail's sender is found in YAM's address book, YAM can display additional information in the header part of the Read window. If 'data only' is selected, YAM will show some information such as the name, date of birth, snail mail address, description, etc. as found in the address book for this entry. Select 'data and image' to make YAM display a picture of the sender (of course there's got to be one in the address book ;)) in addition to the other data.

Wrap headers

Choose whether to show long headers on one line or to break them on two or more. In the first case, you will need to use the horizontal scrollbar in order to see all the information.

Message body layout

Separate sig.

It has become a custom to separate the signature from the text of an e-mail using two dashes and a space. If you don't like this kind of separation, you can define another here. Apart from the setting 'two dashes' you can select between 'separator bar', 'blank line' or even 'no signature' to have no signature at all.

Colored text

Text passages embedded in # characters will be highlighted by YAM in a special color both in the internal editor and in the Read window. Here you can define the color used for that purpose.

Old quotes

Select here the color used for the several levels of quoting.

Use fixed font

It often makes more sense to use a non-proportional font to read messages, since the layout of any tables will be distorted when using proportional fonts. Don't forget to specify the font of your choice in the 'TextEditor' module of YAM's MUI settings, under 'Fonts/fixed'.

Display all texts

If this option is activated and the message contains attachments, not only the actual body of the message will be displayed, but also those attachments themselves, as long as they are of the 'text' type.

Text styles

YAM uses the characters '_', '/', '*' and '#' to indicate underlined, italic, bold and colored text. For certain special documents, as it is the case with source code, this can make things difficult because some characters are suppressed. So you have the option of switching the rendering of text styles on or off.

Otras opciones

Múltiples ventanas

With this option selected, each message which you choose to read will open its own Read window.

Write

Headers, stock phrases and editor settings

Cabecera de Mensaje

Responder a

Normally this field should remain empty. The default Reply-To address is your e-mail address. If you want to use a different address, then (AND ONLY THEN!!) you should insert that address here. Alternatively, you can use the pop-up button to open the address book window, and then drag an entry from there into this field.

Ejemplo: jdoe@…

Organización

If you want the name of your organization, school, club or whatever to appear in a header of your message, insert it here.

Ejemplo: Doe Donut Production Ltd.

Cabeceras Extra

If for some reason you need to add one or more special extra lines to the headers of your mail, you can insert these header lines here. If you would like to insert several lines, separate them by inserting '\n'.

POR FAVOR NO utilice esta característica a menos que tenga conocimiento suficiente de la estructura del correo de Internet.

Ejemplo: 'Content-Language: uk\nKeywords: Pattern, YAM, Internet'

Cuerpo del Mensaje

Frase de Bienvenida

YAM will insert this text at the beginning of every new message you write (except for answers and forwarded messages). You can define a line break by inserting '\n'.

Ejemplo: 'Hello,\n'

Frase de Despedida

This text will be inserted at the end of every new message you write, just before the signature separator. You can insert a line break with '\n'.

Ejemplo: 'Kind regards\n\nJohn Doe'

Warn when there's an empty subject line

Activate this option to let YAM warn you any time you try to send an email with an empty subject line. This may be the case when sending email to mailing list managers and other automated services, but it is generally considered as bad taste to use an empty subject line when posting to a mailing list. If you seldom use empty subject lines or you use to forget to fill in this field, you might want to use this option.

Editor

Word wrap

When you save a newly written message, it will be formatted to make sure that no line has more characters than the value specified here. You can also decide whether YAM will insert line breaks as you type or if this should be postponed until you send the message. In the first case, the internal editor will insert line break codes while you're typing the message. This way you avoid unwanted surprises when the text is formatted later on saving the message, but on the other hand, any subsequent insertion or deletion of text might be a little less comfortable.

Ejemplo: 76

Editor Externo

If you do not like the internal editor and wish to use another one (thereby forgoing automatic spell checking, text styles and glossary), you can insert its name here. Remember to insert the full path for the editor, and maybe an appropriate command line option.

Ejemplo: 'C:Ed'

Lanzar inmediatamente

Activate this option if you would like the external editor to be launched automatically as soon as you start creating a new message. By doing so you won't have to click on the [Editor] button in the Write window.

Caché de correo

YAM can cache on disk a certain number of the most recent recipients used when writing a new email, if those recipients aren't already in your address book. This may improve the performance of the automatic name completer, especially if your address book is rather brief and you often find yourself having to type your recipient's name and address.

If the hit ratio of the email cache is very low in your everyday use, you might want to turn it off completely by selecting zero mails.

Responder/Remitir

Options for quoting messages

Remitiendo

Frase Inicial

This text will be added at the beginning of the original text of any message you forward. Click the pop-up button to select from a list of variables which can be inserted (for example %r stands for the name of the recipient, %s stands for the subject, etc.). When the text is inserted into the message, YAM replaces the variables with their respective values, taken from the forwarded message.

Ejemplo: '* Forwarded message, originally by %n on %d: *\n'

Frase Final

This text will be inserted at the end of any forwarded message, but before the greetings phrase. Click the pop-up button to select a variable from the list (for subject, date, sender, etc.).

Ejemplo: '* End of forwarded message *\n'

Respondiendo

Fras de Respuesta por defecto

When you reply to a message, YAM can automatically insert three different phrases in the new message: greetings (Open), an introduction to the quoted message (Intro) and a closing phrase (Close). Use the cycle gadget to select one of these phrases and enter it in the field on the right. Click the pop-up button to select a variable from the list (for subject, date, sender, etc.).

Ejemplo: [Open] 'Hello %f,\n'

[Intro] 'On %d, you wrote:\n' [Close] 'Kind regards'

Frase de respuesta Alternativa

Communicating via Internet often means writing in another language. For that reason, YAM is capable of using an alternative reply phrase set, which will be used automatically whenever the recipient's address matches an user defined pattern. This way you can, for instance, use a German version of the reply phrase set for addresses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, while using the English version for all other countries.

Ejemplo: [Open] 'Hallo %f,\n'

[Intro] 'Am %d schriebst Du:\n' [Close] 'Mit freundlichem Gruss'

Usar con estos dominios

Whenever the recipient's address corresponds with this AmigaDOS pattern , the alternative reply phrases will be used.

Ejemplo: '#?.(de|ch|at)' (Addresses of countries with German mother tongue)

Frase de respuesta Lista de correo

To answer a message belonging to a mailing list, another set of phrases is available -- they will be used if the message that is being answered is stored in a folder for which mailing list support has been activated (see folder configuration ).

Ejemplo: [Open] 'Hi!\n'

[Intro] 'On %d, %n wrote:\n' [Close] 'Kind regards'

Quote message using

The character(s) specified in the editing field plus a space will be put in front of each line of the original message. Click the pop-up button to select a variable for the sender's initials.

Example: '%i>'

Quote external using

The character(s) specified in the editing field plus a space will be put in front of each line quoted from an external source, not necessarily related to e-mail. This is used when inserting or pasting text using the "alternate quoted" method.

Example: '|'

Quote empty lines

Usually, the quotation character is inserted at the beginning of empty lines contained in the quoted message. If for some reason you don't like this, just deactivate this option.

Verify recipient address

If this option is enabled, YAM will check if the sender and the return address are the same -- if the "From:" and the "Reply-To:" headers of the message are different, you will be asked to select whom to reply to. This way it is fairly easy to reply privately to a message from a mailing list.

Strip signature

Activate this option to avoid quoting the signature (since you'll delete the signature anyway in most cases). This option will work only when the signature in the quoted message is separated from the actual message by the standard '-- ' separator, that is, two dashes AND a space.

Firma

You can define and use one standard and upto two alternative signatures within YAM (e.g. one signature for private email and another one for business). Clicking on the cycle button in the upper left corner of the window you can display and edit the signatures in the small text editor window below.

Usar firma

If this option is activated, a signature will be inserted at the end of each message you write.

Editar en editor externo

Click this button to open the external editor you have defined in Configuration/Write/External editor to edit the signature currently selected.

Insert random tagline

Click this button to insert the '%t' variable at the actual cursor position in the editor. When processing a new message, YAM will replace this variable with a random tagline from the taglines file.

Insertar ENV:Firma

Click this button to insert the variable '%e' at the current cursor position in the editor. YAM will replace this variable with the contents of the 'SIGNATURE' environment variable while creating a new message. This way it is possible to have random values automatically inserted into the signature, like the date, the actual temperature, the time, your weight or whatever...

Tagline file

The tagline database contains taglines, little poems or other very important and witty pieces of wisdom which can be selected randomly and be inserted into the signature. There are collections of thousands of these taglines on Aminet.

Ejemplo: 'PROGDIR:.taglines'

Tagline separator

Since a tagline can consist of several actual lines, the single entries in the tagline file have to be separated from each other. Insert the string that is used for separating one tagline from another in your tagline file into this text field.

Ejemplo: '%%'

It often makes more sense to use a non-proportional font since the display might become distorted with proportional fonts. Don't forget to specify the font of your choice in the 'TextEditor' module of YAM's MUI settings, under 'Fonts/fixed'.

Hora en Pulsos Swatch

Enable this option to display the time in Swatch Beats instead of the hours:minutes format. This revolutionary unit of time, invented by Swatch, a Swiss watch manufacturer, divides the day in 1000 beats and abolishes the different time zones. The meridian is Biel, a town located in Switzerland.

Formato de tamaño

This setting allows you to select the exact format of the sizes given in the message and folder lists, as well as the preselection window.

Barra de Estado

Posición

Allows you to select the position of the status bar, or even disable it completely.

Ejemplo: Top

Etiqueta

The contents of the status bar. Use the pop-up button at the right to select a variable for new, unread, etc. messages.

Ejemplo: '- Total: %t New: %n Unread: %u'

Seguridad

Encriptado de correo con PGP

PGP

Directorio de PGP

The famous (some people and authorities might even say notorious) programme PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) by Philip Zimmermann is used for encrypting, decrypting and digitally 'signing' messages. Please install PGP as described in PGP's manual and insert the full directory path of the PGP executable here. YAM recognizes automatically if you're using version 2.6 or 5.x.

Ejemplo: 'Work:Programs/PGP/bin/'

Su clave PGP de ID

If you want to sign messages with PGP, YAM needs the shortcut of your secret PGP key. Click on the pop-up button and select your key. If YAM cannot find your PGP key, then either PGP is not installed correctly on your system, or you've specified the wrong path for the PGP executable.

Ejemplo: 0x70804A7B

Encrypt to self

Encrypting messages for a certain recipient has one disadvantage: you cannot read or edit the message any more after encryption. Activate this option to be able to read the message after encryption. YAM will enable you to do so by simply encrypting the mail using the recipient's key as well as your own.

Ficheros de registro

Ruta fichero de registro

YAM will save the log files to the path specified here. The format of log files is explained in the Reference chapter.

Separar fichero de registro

Switch this option on if you want YAM to create a new log file each month. To distinguish the different files that will be created, YAM includes the date in the log file name, e.g. YAM-Jan98.log. If you'd like one big single log file, just leave this option deactivated.

Modo

If you are not interested in having log files at all, select 'none'. Select 'normal' to have only the important events like receiving/sending mail recorded. In 'verbose' mode, YAM will log every transferred e-mail in detail.

Registrar todos los eventos

Deactivate this option if you're only interested in logging events having to do with the mail transfer (sending/receiving).

Iniciar/Salir

Opciones para acciones al arrancar y al salir del programa.

Al Inicio del Programa

Cargar todas las carpetas

If you have many voluminous archive folders, you can increase YAM's starting speed by deactivating this option. Furthermore, deactivating this option will save memory, because only the index files of the system folders will be loaded on startup -- the index files of the user-defined folders will be loaded only when they are needed.

Marcar nuevo correo como no leído

Switch this option on to mark all new messages as "unread" on startup.

Borrar correo antiguo

In the case that you have defined a maximum age for specific folders, YAM will delete all messages exceeding this age before actually quitting if this option is activated.

Eliminar correo borrado

Switch this on to make YAM empty the 'Deleted' folder on startup.

Comprobar cumpleaños

Switch this option on to make YAM search the address book on startup for people whose birthday is today. This way you can send your congratulations at once, in case it's the birthday of one of your pals (or maybe even business partners). When run from a shell, the NOCHECK switch prevents this check from being done.

Enviar correo en cola de salida

If this option is activated, YAM will search the Outgoing folder for messages to send on startup and ask you if you'd like to send them. Please note that this will work only if a TCP/IP stack has been loaded previously. You can temporarily stop YAM from doing so by starting YAM from a shell with the NOCHECK switch.

Descargar nuevo correo

If this option is activated (and there's already a TCP/IP stack running on your system), YAM will check the mail server for new messages on startup. You can temporarily stop YAM from doing so by starting YAM from a shell with the NOCHECK switch.

Al finalizar el programa

Enviar correo en cola de salida

Activate this option to make YAM look for ready to send messages in the Outgoing folder before actually ending the program. If it's activated, YAM will ask you if you'd like to send those messages before quitting. (Of course it will do so only if there are actually any messages in the Outgoing folder.)

Borrar correo antiguo

In the case that you have defined a maximum age for specific folders, YAM will delete all messages exceeding this age before actually quitting if this option is activated.

Eliminar correo borrado

Switch this on to make YAM empty the 'Deleted' folder when closing down.

MIME

Configure MIME viewers for attachments.

Visores MIME

The program selected by default to display attachments is MultiView. Messages in MIME format contain a field called Content-Type in which the type of the encoded file is specified. You can define a different program to process every single type of file. This is important for users who do not want to use MultiView for processing images and sound files, or for processing file types not yet supported by datatypes. Click New to configure a display program, or use Delete to delete an entry. In addition, new file types defined here are also taken into account when composing a new message. For instance, if a new attachment type "application/pgs" is defined for filenames ending in ".pgs", YAM will automatically use this MIME type when attaching files that bear this extension.

Tipo de Anexo

This is the type of the actual entry, and corresponds to the Content-Type field contained in the message. You can select one from the pop-up list or use AmigaDOS wildcards, e.g. 'image/#?' to use the programme for a whole class of file types.

Ejemplo: 'image/jpeg'

Extensión

Filename extension for the file type. This extension allows YAM to assign the correct "Content-Type:" field for a file.

Ejemplo: 'jpg jpeg jfif'

Visor

Choose the program you'd like to use to display the attachment. Do not forget to insert a "%s" into the command line, which will be replaced by the filename when processing.

Ejemplo: 'TOOLS:Gfx/ViewJPG "%s"'

Visor por defecto

This viewer will be used if the attachment doesn't match any of the user defined types (see above).

Ejemplo: 'SYS:Utilities/MultiView "%s" SCREEN'

Identificar anexos binarios

Some mail clients always use application/octet-stream as the "Content-Type:" field for binary attachments. To still show such attachments with the correct program, YAM can search the viewer list based on the file name extension of the attached file (see Extension above).

Rutas

Decode files to

This is the pre-selected directory to decode attachments into.

Example: Work:Data/In

Attach files from

Whenever you want to attach a file to a new message, YAM will look for it at this position first.

Example: Work:Data/Out

Address book

Visible columns, personal data exchange

Columnas

Select the items you want to see in the address book.

Personal data exchange

Add personal info

Check this option to create special message headers containing personal data like your postal address, phone number, homepage, date of birth or URL of your picture. If the recipient works with YAM too, (s)he will able to create an address book entry and fill it with your data. To get this working, add an entry to your address book containing your data (YAM will find your entry based on the e-mail address).

Save sender's address

YAM can automatically save the sender's address when you're reading a message, i.e. it will create a new entry in the address book. Choose one of these modes:

never Don't save addresses if info available; ask You'll only be asked if there's personal data of the sender available, otherwise the address won't be saved ask before You'll be asked every time whether the address should be saved or not if info available The address will be saved automatically if there's personal data of the sender available always All new addresses will be saved automatically

Group for new entries

Alias of the group that will contain the new address book entries created by the previous option. The group will be created if it doesn't exist yet.

Example: NEW

Save photos in

The pictures of the senders are stored here.

Example: PROGDIR:Gallery

URL of your picture

If one exists, enter here the WWW address (URL) of a small photo of yourself. The URL will be listed along with the headers of every outgoing message if 'Add personal info' is enabled.

Example: 'http://yam.ch/gallery/BECK_Marcel.gif'

HTTP Proxy server

If you're behind a firewall and only get into the Internet using a proxy server, then you have to enter here the address of that proxy server, otherwise it won't be possible to download photos or get information about new versions of YAM.

Example: proxy.example.com:8080

Scripts

As well as the "Scripts" menu in the main window, which can hold up to ten scripts, ARexx scripts can also be started by certain events. For example, it is possible with two simple scripts to start up Miami in order to go online and fetch new mail, and then close Miami again once the mail has been downloaded.

Name

The title of the script as it appears in the "Scripts" menu, e.g. "Start Browser".

Script

File name of the ARexx script, including any needed parameters (in the usual ARexx fashion, but without a call to 'RX').

Example: PROGDIR:rexx/StartBrowser.rexx

Open Console window

The script will open a console window for input and output while it is running. Switch this option off if a console window is not required.

Wait for termination

Switch this option off if you want the script to run in the background, which means you don't want to wait for it to finish before YAM can go ahead with other tasks.

Miscellaneous

Paths, AppIcon, save/delete, tracking & packing

Paths

Directory for temp files

YAM needs this directory to save some files needed while processing e.g. messages with MIME attachments. If you are short on memory (2 MB or less), you better choose a path on your hard disk to avoid possible problems with very large messages.

Example: 'T:'

Mailbox status AppIcon

Position X/Y

Enter here the desired position on your Workbench for YAM's AppIcon. If another icon is already ocuppying this position, Workbench will choose a 'safe' position for the AppIcon on its own (so you don't have to worry about 'deleting' another icon).

Example: 'X:550 Y:144'

Label

The label for the AppIcon which will be displayed while YAM is running can be specified here. Click the pop-up button to select a variable for new, unread, etc. messages.

Close gadget iconifies program

Following the MUI default behavior, the close gadget (or the <Esc> key) will terminate the program. Activate this option to let them iconify YAM instead.

Save/delete messages

Confirm deletion of [xx] or more messages

If this option is activated, a security requester will appear before deleting a certain number of messages. This makes sense especially when a number of two or more is selected.

Remove messages immediately

If this option is switched on, messages won't be moved to the 'Deleted' folder on deletion -- instead, they will be erased immediately from the hard disk. This saves some time and memory, but on the other hand you won't be able to retrieve any message deleted by mistake.

Save sent messages

Activate this option to make YAM save sent messages into the 'Sent' folder. You can select this as well specifically for any single mail, by using the relevant option in the Write window.

Message tracking

Here you can define how YAM should react if a message's sender has requested a disposition notification (MDN) while writing his/her message.

Ignore - The request will be ignored completely and there won't be any report. Autodeny - The sender will be informed that you don't wish to send a disposition notification for the message. Accept - The sender will be informed as requested about the message's disposition. Ask user - You can decide in each case if you want to ignore, deny or accept the request.

Additionally, YAM's reaction can be related to the event activating the disposition notification:

Display - The message was read or answered Process - The message was bounced or forwarded without reading Delete - The message was deleted without reading Filter - The message was automatically processed or deleted by a filter

Send at once

The condition report will be sent immediately if there's a TCP/IP stack running, otherwise it will be saved to the 'Outgoing' folder.

XPK/LhA settings

Packer

By clicking the pop-up button, you can choose the XPK library you wish to use to compress folders. Before doing so, an XPK package must be installed on your computer system. This package is not contained in the YAM archive, but can be downloaded from the Aminet. You can select the packer's efficiency by using the slider bar on the right-hand side of the pop-up button -- the higher the value, the better compression, but also slower.

Example: 'NUKE 100%'

Pack/protect

Click the pop-up button to select the XPK library you wish to use for compression and password protection of folders. You can only select XPK libraries offering password protection. Specify the packer's efficiency with the slider bar on the right-hand side of the pop-up button.

Example: 'HUFF 50%'

Archiver

YAM is capable of crunching one or more files before attaching them to an e-mail, using a suitable archiver such as LHA, LZX or ZIP. Enter here the full command path line for your favourite archiver, including any options. You can insert variables for the resulting archive and the source files (or a list containing the source files) by clicking the pop-up button on the right hand side of the text field.

Example: 'LhA -a -m -i%l a %a'

[

Look & Feel

Here YAM will display a list with available themes and a small preview of what it will look like.

Activate

Activates the selected theme, which requires you to save the configuration and restart YAM, in order to see the new icons.

Status bar

Will show a status bar at either - top, middle, bottom or don't show any at all.

Label

Here you can select what the status bar should show. There are a number of different options to select from.

Size format

Here you can select how YAM will display sizes for mails and mail drawers.

Embedded read pane in main window

Shows an embedded read pane in the main window, which allows you to read mails directly in the main window instead of double-clicking a mail to open it in a separate read window.

Show quick search in main window

Shows a quick search field in the main window, for quick searches :)

Updates

Update settings

Check for updates

Allows you to select the interval at which YAM will check for updates to itself and other third party software, which YAM needs. A button next to it, allows you to do manual checks for updates at will.

Below you can also see when exactly the last check was done.

Hidden Configuration

YAM recognises some extra parameters that are not mentioned in any configuration window. You have to load the file .config into a text editor and alter the parameters in the Advanced section by hand.

LetterPart

Usually the first part of a multipart letter contains the actual message, while the subsequent parts are the attachments. A few mail servers, like GeoCities, use the first part for their advertisements, which would then be quoted in a reply instead of the actual message. With the LetterPart option you can correct this.

Example: 'LetterPart = 2'

WriteIndexes

If the contents of a folder are altered, YAM must rebuild the index. This index is in RAM memory, and it is saved back to the hard disk on a normal exit. In the event that the computer has to be rebooted (because of a crash, perhaps), YAM has to rebuild the indices on startup. Therefore, YAM will save alterations to the index file at intervals of 120 seconds. This time interval can be altered using the WriteIndexes option.

Example: 'WriteIndexes = 30'

AutoSave

While you're writing a message, YAM saves the contents of the editor every ten minutes as .autosave0.txt or .autosave1.txt in the program directory. After a crash you can load this file using "Text/Insert". The AutoSave parameter contains the time interval between two backups, in seconds.

Example: 'AutoSave = 600'

SupportSite

This is the address of the YAM homepage, used to access the user picture gallery and to request the version check.

Example: 'SupportSite = http://yam.ch/'

JumpToNewMsg

If this option is set to 'Y', YAM will jump to the first new or unread message whenever you select a folder.

Example: 'JumpToNewMsg = N'

JumpToIncoming

If this option is set to 'Y', YAM will jump to the first new or unread message whenever you download new email. This only comes into effect if 'Incoming' is the current folder.

Example: 'JumpToIncoming = N'

AskJumpUnread

If this option is set to 'N', YAM won't ask if you want to jump to the next/previous folder with unread messages if you are reading the last or first message and select any of the Next/Previous unread message items in the Navigation menu.

Example: 'AskJumpUnread = N'

PrinterCheck

YAM does some printer checking before printing a message. This test can be disabled because it's not fully compatible with some printer drivers.

Example: 'PrinterCheck = N'

IsOnlineCheck

If you're using Miami or AmiTCP/Genesis, YAM can check if your Amiga is really online. If you're using another TCP/IP software and YAM is claiming a missing connection although you're actually online, then you must switch this option off.

Example: 'IsOnlineCheck = N'

IOCInterface

Specifies which Miami Deluxe/AmiTCP/Genesis interface should be used for the online check (see IsOnlineCheck).

Example: 'IOCInterface = ppp1'

ConfirmOnQuit

If this option is enabled, YAM will ask for confirmation whenever you try to quit it. By default, YAM only asks for confirmation if there is some unsaved data (configuration, address book).

Example: 'ConfirmOnQuit = Y'

HideGUIElements

This can be used to hide some elements of the graphic user interface. The following values can be combined: 4 for the toolbars, 2 for the cursor position in the editor, and 1 for the status bar.

Please note that as of YAM 2.4, the status bar is not affected by this setting anymore, but it is now set in Configuration/Lists.

Example: 'HideGUIElements = 3'

LocalCharset

This is the ISO name of the character set you're using on your computer. The default iso-8859-1 (Latin-1) works for Western Europe and English speaking countries. Polish and Russian users probably have to adjust this option.

Example: 'LocalCharset = iso-8859-2'

StackSize

Sets the stack size for programs which are launched from YAM (e.g. MIME viewers and PGP).

Example: 'StackSize = 40000'

OverrideFromAddress

Setting this option to "Y" will add a recipient string object below the identity chooser in the write window. The contents default to the chosen identity's address but can be modified freely. This makes it possible to use a different From: address than the one configured in the identity while still using all other settings like the SMTP server.
