     1[[TranslatedPages]]\\[[TOC(depth=1)]] 
     2 
     3= Configuración = 
     4YAM has a huge number of options, which can be set up in the configuration window.  The program options are divided into sheets which can be selected by clicking on the corresponding word in the left part of the configuration window. There are also three menu items available. 
     5 
     6[[=#FixFirstSteps]] 
     7== First Steps == 
     8This sheet contains some essential information needed for YAM to work. 
     9 
     10=== Minimal configuration === 
     11`Full Name` 
     12  Your real name and surname.  Please take care that this field is filled in correctly.  DO NOT use quotation marks in your name. 
     13 
     14  Example: John Doe 
     15 
     16`E-mail address` 
     17  This is your e-mail address, consisting of your <username>@<domainname>. 
     18 
     19  Example: jdoe@example.com 
     20 
     21`Mail server` 
     22  The Internet address (hostname or IP) of your system's mail server.  This server, which normally is a computer of your ISP (Internet Service Provider), must be capable of working with the POP3/SMTP protocol. 
     23 
     24  Example: mail.example.com 
     25 
     26`User name` 
     27  The user name for logging into the mail server of your ISP. 
     28 
     29  Example: jdoe 
     30 
     31`Password` 
     32  The password which is asked from you by your mail server.  This password is possibly but not necessarily identical to the password you use to log in on your ISP, and is usually case sensitive. 
     33 
     34  Example: nguz56 
     35 
     36[[=#FixTimezone]] 
     37=== Time zone === 
     38`Timezone` 
     39  The time and date displayed by YAM in the message list is always converted to your local time.  This guarantees correct sorting of messages from all over the world sent out from different time zones.  The time zone is part of the message's date and specifies the difference between local time and Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 
     40 
     41  Examples:  GMT+01:00 (for Central Europe), GMT 00:00 (for the U.K.), GMT-05:00 (for U.S. EST e.g.  New York City) 
     42 
     43  Normally YAM will get the time zone from your Locale settings, thus this selector will be ghosted. 
     44 
     45`Add adjustment for daylight saving time` 
     46  This option is to be activated during daylight saving time. By doing so, one hour will be added to the time zone value. YAM automatically changes to/from daylight saving time if the operating system support DST switching (e.g. AmigaOS4) or if a AutoDST tool like SetDST, FACTS or SummertimeGuard is installed. This is indicated by ghosting this checkbox. 
     47 
     48  Example: John Doe 
     49 
     50== TCP/IP == 
     51Here you can enter the information needed to actually send email, as well as define additional POP3 accounts. 
     52 
     53=== Send mail (SMTP) === 
     54Apart from the primary SMTP server already defined in the First steps section, you can set up an unlimited number of SMTP servers here; the names appear in the list on the left and clicking on a name brings up the relevant details 
     55on the right. Note that these accounts can be for the same user on a different server, or a different user on the same server. Either way, you can check for new mail with a single mouse click. Click on [New] to insert the data required for a new e-mail account. With [Delete] you can delete accounts. 
     56 
     57`Server` 
     58  The Internet address of the system you're sending your mail to. This server, which usually is a computer of your ISP (Internet Service Provider), must be capable of processing the SMTP protocol. 
     59 
     60  Example: mail.example.com 
     61 
     62`Port` 
     63  The port number of the SMTP service. The standard port is 25 for plain SMTP. In case of using SSL/TLS connections this port may also be 576 or 456. 
     64 
     65  Example: 25 
     66 
     67`SMTP server allows 8bit` 
     68  Originally only the US-ASCII character set was allowed for use in e-mail, which meant that users were forced to use vowels (e.g., they had to use 'ae' instead of 'ä').  The reason for that was that many servers only processed the first 7 bits and simply cut off the 8th bit, crippling the e-mail while doing so. This problem was solved by introducing the MIME quoted-printable standard, which converts all 'unauthorized' characters to 7 bit before transfer and reconverts them to the original characters on delivery.  Modern mail servers don't have problems with non-US-ASCII characters any more, so messages do not necessarily have to be converted.  If you are absolutely sure that your server supports 8 bit transfers, you can switch this option on and save a few bits when transferring e-mails. The best way to find out if your mail server supports this is to write a message to yourself containing modified vowels and see what happens. 
     69 
     70  Example: Yes 
     71 
     72`Use SMTP AUTH` 
     73  Enable this if you want to use SMTP Authentication, whereby YAM will request your mail server to use an extra authentication layer as documented in RFC 2554. You will need to fill in another couple of UserID/Password fields in this case. If your SMTP server does not support SMTP AUTH, you will receive an error message when trying to send email. Ask your ISP if in doubt.  
     74 
     75  Example: No 
     76 
     77`Username` 
     78  When using SMTP AUTH you can insert the user name for the SMTP authentification here. In most cases this will be identical to the username in your e-mail address.  However, there are exceptions, so check the instructions from your ISP (YAM then constructs the full account name in the form <Username>@<server>). 
     79 
     80  Example: jdoe 
     81 
     82`Password` 
     83  The password which has to be sent to the mail server at login time. You can leave this field empty for security reasons -- if you do, the password will be asked to you whenever you send new mails. Also, remember the password is case sensitive. 
     84 
     85  Example: nguz56 
     86 
     87`Use SMTP TLSv1/SSLv3` 
     88  Enable this if your SMTP server supports TLSv1/SSLv3 secure connections. If enabled, YAM will connect via the AmiSSL library with the SMTP server and encrypts every transfer. 
     89 
     90  Example: No 
     91 
     92[[=#FixPOP3]] 
     93=== Receive mail (POP3) === 
     94Apart from the primary POP3 server already defined in the First steps section, you can set up an unlimited number of POP3 servers here; the names appear in the list on the left and clicking on a name brings up the relevant details 
     95on the right. Note that these accounts can be for the same user on a different server, or a different user on the same server. Either way, you can check for new mail with a single mouse click. Click on [New] to insert the data required for a new e-mail account. With [Delete] you can delete accounts. 
     96 
     97`Server` 
     98  The Internet address of the system you're sending your mail to. This server, which usually is a computer of your ISP (Internet Service Provider), must be capable of processing the POP3 protocol. 
     99 
     100  Example: pop.example.com 
     101 
     102`Port` 
     103  The port number of the POP3 service. The standard port is 110 for plain POP3. In case of using SSL/TLS connections this port may also be 995. 
     104 
     105  Example: 110 
     106 
     107`Username` 
     108  The user name for authentication against the specified POP server.. In most cases this will be identical to the username in your e-mail address.  However, there are exceptions, so check the instructions from your ISP (YAM then constructs the full account name in the form <Username>@<server>). 
     109 
     110  Example: jdoe 
     111 
     112`Password` 
     113  The password which has to be sent to the mail server at login time. You can leave this field empty for security reasons -- if you do, the password will be asked to you whenever you send new mails. Also, remember the password is case sensitive. 
     114 
     115  Example: nguz56 
     116 
     117`Active` 
     118  Switch this option on to have the selected POP3 account checked for new mail whenever you use the Get new mail button in the toolbar, or the equivalent item in the "Folder" menu.  If you don't want this email account to be checked automatically, switch this option off and use the menu item Folder/Check single account from the main window instead. 
     119 
     120  Example: Yes 
     121 
     122`Use POP3 TLSv1/SSLv3` 
     123  Activate this option to use SSL based encryption under the TLS protocol as described in RFC 2595.  This adds extra security to prevent the typical eavesdropping and hijacking attacks which POP is commonly subject to, and will use port 995 instead of the usual 110. 
     124  The with STLS option will force the use of the POP3 STARTTLS  extension, adding another layer of security to the communication, using again port 110. 
     125  If your POP3 server doesn't support any of this, you will receive an error message when checking for new mail.  Also, AmiSSL is required. 
     126 
     127  Example: Yes 
     128 
     129`Login using APOP` 
     130  Normally the Username and the password are transmitted as plain text when connecting to a POP3 server.  Under certain circumstances, this could be a security risk, and for this reason modern POP3 servers support the APOP authentication, which transmits the username and password encrypted with a key which is delivered by the server.  If your POP3 server does not support APOP you'll receive an error message when checking for new mail; in that case, switch this option off. Also note, that if your POP3 server supports TLS/SSL this should be preferred as it also transmits the email content encrypted rather than in plain text. 
     131 
     132  Example: No 
     133 
     134`Delete mail on server` 
     135  If this option is activated, new mail will be deleted after downloading it from the mail server.  The messages will be deleted only after they have been successfully saved to your computer. If the POP3 account is used by several people, or if you'd like to access your account again later from another computer, this option can be deactivated. 
     136 
     137  Example Yes 
     138 
     139[[=#FixNewmail]] 
     140== New mail == 
     141Controlling the way mail is downloaded. 
     142 
     143=== Download === 
     144`Pre-selection` 
     145  After establishing a link with the POP3 server, a  preselection window may open showing a list of all new mail in the POP3 mailbox.  This allows you to decide whether to download, delete or leave a message on the server, according to its size, topic or sender. For pre-selection to work properly, the server must support the TOP command which most of them do. 
     146 
     147  //never//: pre-selection is deactivated\\ 
     148  //large messages//: only messages bigger than a size defined by you will be displayed in pre-selection\\ 
     149  //always//: every message will be displayed in pre-selection\\ 
     150  //always, only sizes//: all messages will be displayed but only their sizes will be shown.  The advantage of this method is that it is pretty fast. 
     151 
     152  Example: always 
     153 
     154`Size limit` 
     155  If pre-selection is activated, messages which exceed the size given here will be highlighted.  This way you can avoid downloading messages with huge attachments.  The size is given in kilobytes. If you don't want to use any limit, just insert '0'. 
     156 
     157  In everyday use, the settings 'pre-selection = large messages' and 'size limit=100 kB' have proved to be advantageous.  With these settings, the pre-selection window will only appear if at least one of the new messages exceeds 100 kilobytes in size.   
     158 
     159  Example: 100 
     160 
     161`Transfer window` 
     162  Here you can decide if you want to see the  transfer window  while receiving or sending mail.  With //automatic// it only opens if you manually initialize the transfer, staying closed while YAM automatically checks for new mail. 
     163 
     164  Example: never 
     165 
     166`Avoid duplicates` 
     167  If you choose not to have YAM delete the mail on the server after downloading, it will be downloaded again next time YAM gets your mail, so every message will appear twice in your mail folder.  To prevent this, switch the Avoid duplicates option on -- as long as this option is activated, YAM will keep track of all your downloaded messages in the .uidl file and use special commands of the POP3 server to avoid downloading the same message twice. If the POP3 server supports these UIDL commands, this check will be done rather quickly.  If the server doesn't support these commands, YAM will try to read the Message-ID using the TOP command instead of the UIDL commands.  In case the mail server doesn't support any of these commands, this option must be turned off. 
     168 
     169  Example: Yes 
     170 
     171`Update message status` 
     172  If this option is activated, new messages in the 'Incoming' folder will be marked as 'unread' before downloading new mail.  This way you can instantly recognize the new mail that was downloaded the last time you've fetched mail. 
     173 
     174  Example: Yes 
     175 
     176=== Automatic operation === 
     177`Check for new mail every [xx] minutes` 
     178  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. 
     179 
     180  Example: 15 minutes 
     181 
     182`Download large messages` 
     183  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. 
     184 
     185  Example: No 
     186 
     187=== Notification === 
     188`Requester` 
     189  Once YAM has downloaded new mail, it will display a requester showing the number of new and deleted messages. 
     190 
     191  Example: Yes 
     192 
     193`Sound` 
     194  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. 
     195 
     196  Example: Data:Audio/Newmail.snd 
     197 
     198`Command` 
     199  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. 
     200 
     201  Example: RX PROGDIR:rexx/Newmail.YAM 
     202 
     203[[=#FixFilters]] 
     204== Filters == 
     205The 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 
     206trigger certain actions. Applications for the use of filters include 
     207 
     208- automatically moving mail from a mailing list to a specified folder 
     209 
     210- automatic processing of incoming inquiries by sending pre-defined 
     211  answers 
     212 
     213- automatic deletion of unwanted spam (advertising by e-mail, a real 
     214  pest nowadays) 
     215 
     216- automatic re-directing of mails to another recipient. 
     217 
     218You 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. 
     219 
     220=== Options === 
     221`Name` 
     222  The filter's name is merely for recognition and not of any other use. 
     223 
     224`Remote filter` 
     225  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. 
     226  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. 
     227 
     228`Apply to new mail` 
     229  Activate this option to have all new mail processed by this filter. Processing will start automatically after receiving new mail. 
     230 
     231`Apply to sent mail` 
     232  Activate this option to have all sent mail processed by this filter. Processing will be initiated automatically after sending mail. 
     233 
     234`Apply on request` 
     235  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. 
     236 
     237[[=#FixComparison]] 
     238=== Comparison === 
     239`Search in` 
     240  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). 
     241 
     242  Example: 'Other field: X-Mailer' 
     243 
     244`Comparison` 
     245  The instruction comprises the comparison operator and the search pattern. 
     246 
     247  YAM supports the following comparison operators: 
     248 
     249  - //=//  the text which is compared must match the search pattern 
     250  - //<//  the text must be "less" than the search pattern 
     251  - //>//  the text must be "greater than" the search pattern 
     252  - //<>// the text must be different from the search pattern 
     253  - //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. 
     254 
     255  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. 
     256 
     257  The search pattern may contain [[Pattern matching| 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. 
     258 
     259  Example: '= YAM 1.3.#?' 
     260 
     261`Address/Name` 
     262  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@example.com) or the author's name (e.g. 'John Doe'). 
     263 
     264`Case sensitive` 
     265  Activate this option if you want the filtering process to distinguish between normal and capital letters. 
     266 
     267`Substring search` 
     268  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. 
     269 
     270  It is possible to combine two search criteria. The cycle gadget lets you select how this is to be done: 
     271 
     272  //none// don't use a second criterion 
     273  //and//  both criteria must be satisfied 
     274  //or//   at least one of the two criteria must be met 
     275  //exclusive or// either one or the other of the two criteria must apply, but not both 
     276 
     277=== Action === 
     278 
     279`Bounce` 
     280  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. 
     281 
     282  The new recipient's e-mail address must be inserted into the text field next to the option. 
     283 
     284  Example: jdoe@example.net 
     285 
     286`Forward` 
     287  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. 
     288 
     289`Reply` 
     290  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. 
     291 
     292  Example: PROGDIR:Auto-Texts/Answer1.txt 
     293 
     294`Execute` 
     295  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. 
     296 
     297  Please note that if you want an ARexx script to be executed, you will have to explicitely put the 'RX' command first. 
     298 
     299  Example: 'rx PROGDIR:Rexx/Subscribe.rexx' 
     300 
     301`Play sound` 
     302  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. 
     303 
     304  Example: Data:Audio/Ihatespam.wav 
     305 
     306`Move` 
     307  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. 
     308 
     309 
     310`Delete` 
     311  If this option is activated, all messages matching the search pattern will be deleted. (You probably guessed that... ;) ) 
     312 
     313 
     314`Don't download` 
     315  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. 
     316 
     317[[=#FixSpam]] 
     318== Spam == 
     319Setup of the spam filter. 
     320 
     321`Activate spam filter` 
     322  Activates the spam filter, believe it or not :) 
     323 
     324`Reset Spam training data` 
     325  Resets the Spam training data. Should only be necessary in rare circumstances. 
     326 
     327`Check new mail for spam content` 
     328  Automatically checks new mail for spam content. 
     329 
     330`Addressbook whitelisted` 
     331  If a mail has an From: address that exist in your addressbook, it will never be considered as spam.

     333`Mark mail as spam when moved to Spam folder` 
     334  Any mail that is manually moved to the Spam folder are automatically marked as spam. 
     335 
     336`Mark new spam as read` 
     337  This option will automatically mark new spam mails as read. 
     338 
     339`Move 'Not Spam' back to 'Incoming'` 
     340  Will move mails that has been wrongfully detected as spam or mails that have manually been marked as 'Not Spam' back to 'Incoming' folder. 
     341 
     342`Apply filters` 
     343  Applies all your defined filters to mail that is moved back to the 'Incoming' folder.

     347Layout options 
     348 
     349=== Message header layout === 
     350`Header` 
     351  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. 
     352 
     353  Example: '(From|Subject|Date|X-Mailer)' 
     354 
     355`Sender info` 
     356  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. 
     357 
     358`Wrap headers` 
     359  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. 
     360 
     361=== Message body layout === 
     362`Separate sig.` 
     363  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. 
     364 
     365`Colored text` 
     366  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. 
     367 
     368`Old quotes` 
     369  Select here the color used for the several levels of quoting. 
     370 
     371`Use fixed font` 
     372  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'. 
     373 
     374`Display all texts` 
     375  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. 
     376 
     377`Text styles` 
     378  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. 
     379 
     380=== Other options === 
     381`Multiple windows` 
     382  With this option selected, each message which you choose to read will open its own Read window. 
     383 
     384[[=#FixWrite]] 
     385== Write == 
     386Headers, stock phrases and editor settings 
     387 
     388=== Message Header === 
     389`Reply to` 
     390  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. 
     391 
     392  Example: jdoe@example.com 
     393 
     394`Organization` 
     395  If you want the name of your organization, school, club or whatever to appear in a header of your message, insert it here. 
     396 
     397  Example:  Doe Donut Production Ltd. 
     398 
     399`Extra headers` 
     400  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'. 
     401 
     402  PLEASE DON'T use this feature unless you have enough knowledge of the structure of Internet email. 
     403 
     404  Example: 'Content-Language: uk\nKeywords: Pattern, YAM, Internet' 
     405 
     406=== Message Body === 
     407`Welcome phrase` 
     408  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'. 
     409 
     410  Example: 'Hello,\n' 
     411 
     412`Closing phrase` 
     413  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'. 
     414 
     415  Example: 'Kind regards\n\nJohn Doe' 
     416 
     417`Warn when there's an empty subject line` 
     418  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. 
     419 
     420=== Editor === 
     421`Word wrap` 
     422  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. 
     423 
     424  Example: 76 
     425 
     426`External editor` 
     427  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. 
     428 
     429  Examples: 'C:Ed' 
     430 
     431`Launch immediately` 
     432  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. 
     433 
     434`Email cache` 
     435  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. 
     436 
     437  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. 
     438 
     439[[=#FixReplyForward]] 
     440== Reply/Forward == 
     441Options for quoting messages 
     442 
     443=== Forwarding === 
     444`Initial phrase` 
     445  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. 
     446 
     447  Example: '*** Forwarded message, originally by %n on %d: ***\n' 
     448 
     449`Terminating phrase` 
     450  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.). 
     451 
     452  Example:  '*** End of forwarded message ***\n' 
     453 
     454=== Replying === 
     455`Default reply phrase` 
     456  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.). 
     457 
     458  Example:  [Open]    'Hello %f,\n' 
     459            [Intro]   'On %d, you wrote:\n' 
     460            [Close]   'Kind regards' 
     461 
     462 
     463`Alternative reply phrase` 
     464  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. 
     465 
     466  Example:  [Open]    'Hallo %f,\n' 
     467            [Intro]   'Am %d schriebst Du:\n' 
     468            [Close]   'Mit freundlichem Gruss' 
     469 
     470`Use with these domains` 
     471  Whenever the recipient's address corresponds with this AmigaDOS pattern , the alternative reply phrases will be used. 
     472 
     473  Example:  '#?.(de|ch|at)' (Addresses of countries with German mother tongue) 
     474[=#FixReply] 
     475`Mailing list reply phrase` 
     476  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 ). 
     477 
     478  Example:  [Open]    'Hi!\n' 
     479            [Intro]   'On %d, %n wrote:\n' 
     480            [Close]   'Kind regards' 
     481 
     482`Quote message using` 
     483  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. 
     484 
     485  Example: '%i>' 
     486 
     487`Quote external using` 
     488  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. 
     489 
     490  Example: '|'  
     491 
     492`Quote empty lines` 
     493  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. 
     494 
     495`Verify recipient address` 
     496  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. 
     497 
     498`Strip signature` 
     499  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. 
     500 
     501[=#FixSign] 
     502== Signature == 
     503You 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. 
     504 
     505`Use signature` 
     506  If this option is activated, a signature will be inserted at the end of each message you write. 
     507 
     508 
     509`Edit in external editor` 
     510  Click this button to open the external editor you have defined in Configuration/Write/External editor to edit the signature currently selected. 
     511 
     512`Insert random tagline` 
     513  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. 
     514 
     515`Insert ENV:Signature` 
     516  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... 
     517 
     518`Tagline file` 
     519  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. 
     520 
     521  Example: 'PROGDIR:.taglines'  
     522 
     523`Tagline separator` 
     524  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. 
     525 
     526  Example: '%%' 
     527 
     528[=#FixLists]

     533`Folder list, Message list` 
     534  Select the items you want to see in these lists. 
     535 
     536  As of YAM 2.4, you can also have a context menu for both the folder and message lists. 
     537 
     538=== General settings === 
     539`Use fixed font` 
     540  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'. 
     541 
     542`Time in Swatch Beats` 
     543  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. 
     544 
     545`Size format` 
     546  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. 
     547 
     548=== Status bar === 
     549`Position` 
     550  Allows you to select the position of the status bar, or even disable it completely. 
     551 
     552  Example: Top 
     553 
     554`Label` 
     555  The contents of the status bar.  Use the pop-up button at the right to select a variable for new, unread, etc. messages.

     561Encrypting mails with PGP 
     562 
     563=== PGP === 
     564`PGP's directory` 
     565  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. 
     566 
     567  Example: 'Work:Programs/PGP/bin/'  
     568 
     569`Your PGP key ID` 
     570  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. 
     571 
     572  Example: 0x70804A7B 
     573 
     574`Encrypt to self` 
     575  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. 
     576 
     577[[=#FixLogfiles]] 
     578=== Log files === 
     579`Log file path` 
     580  YAM will save the log files to the path specified here. The format of log files is explained in the  Reference  chapter. 
     581 
     582`Split log file` 
     583  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. 
     584 
     585`Mode` 
     586  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. 
     587 
     588`Log all events` 
     589  Deactivate this option if you're only interested in logging events having to do with the mail transfer (sending/receiving).

     593Options for actions at start up and termination 
     594 
     595=== On program startup === 
     596`Load all folders` 
     597  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. 
     598 
     599`Mark new mail as unread` 
     600  Switch this option on to mark all new messages as "unread" on startup. 
     601 
     602`Delete old mail` 
     603  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. 
     604 
     605`Remove deleted mail` 
     606  Switch this on to make YAM empty the 'Deleted' folder on startup. 
     607 
     608`Check birthdates` 
     609  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. 
     610 
     611`Send mail in outgoing queue` 
     612  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. 
     613 
     614`Download new mail` 
     615  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. 
     616 
     617=== On program termination === 
     618`Send mail in outgoing queue` 
     619  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.) 
     620 
     621`Delete old mail` 
     622  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. 
     623 
     624`Remove deleted mail` 
     625  Switch this on to make YAM empty the 'Deleted' folder when closing down. 
     626 
     627[[=#FixMime]] 
     628== MIME == 
     629Configure MIME viewers for attachments. 
     630 
     631=== MIME viewers === 
     632The 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. 
     633  
     634In 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. 
     635 
     636`Attachment type` 
     637  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. 
     638 
     639  Example: 'image/jpeg' 
     640 
     641`Extension` 
     642  Filename extension for the file type.  This extension allows YAM to assign the correct "Content-Type:" field for a file. 
     643 
     644  Example: 'jpg jpeg jfif' 
     645 
     646`Viewer` 
     647  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. 
     648 
     649  Example: 'TOOLS:Gfx/ViewJPG "%s"' 
     650 
     651`Default viewer` 
     652  This viewer will be used if the attachment doesn't match any of the user defined types (see above). 
     653 
     654  Example: 'SYS:Utilities/MultiView "%s" SCREEN' 
     655 
     656`Identify binary attachments` 
     657  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). 
     658 
     659=== Paths === 
     660 
     661`Decode files to` 
     662  This is the pre-selected directory to decode attachments into.

     664  Example: Work:Data/In 
     665 
     666 
     667`Attach files from` 
     668  Whenever you want to attach a file to a new message, YAM will look for it at this position first.

     675 
     676=== Colums === 
     677Select the items you want to see in the address book. 
     678 
     679=== Personal data exchange === 
     680`Add personal info` 
     681  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). 
     682 
     683`Save sender's address` 
     684  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: 
     685 
     686  //never// Don't save addresses 
     687  //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 
     688  //ask before// You'll be asked every time whether the address should be saved or not 
     689  //if info available// The address will be saved automatically if there's personal data of the sender available 
     690  //always// All new addresses will be saved automatically 
     691 
     692`Group for new entries` 
     693  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. 
     694 
     695  Example:  NEW 
     696 
     697`Save photos in` 
     698  The pictures of the senders are stored here. 
     699 
     700  Example:  PROGDIR:Gallery 
     701 
     702`URL of your picture` 
     703  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. 
     704 
     705  Example: 'http://yam.ch/gallery/BECK_Marcel.gif' 
     706 
     707`HTTP Proxy server` 
     708  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. 
     709 
     710  Example: proxy.example.com:8080 
     711 
     712[[=#FixScripts]] 
     713== Scripts == 
     714As 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. 
     715 
     716`Name` 
     717  The title of the script as it appears in the "Scripts" menu, e.g. "Start Browser". 
     718 
     719`Script` 
     720  File name of the ARexx script, including any needed parameters (in the usual ARexx fashion, but without a call to 'RX'). 
     721 
     722  Example: PROGDIR:rexx/StartBrowser.rexx 
     723 
     724`Open Console window` 
     725  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. 
     726 
     727`Wait for termination` 
     728  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. 
     729 
     730[[=#FixMisc]] 
     731== Miscellaneous == 
     732Paths, AppIcon, save/delete, tracking & packing 
     733 
     734=== Paths === 
     735`Directory for temp files` 
     736  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. 
     737 
     738  Example: 'T:' 
     739 
     740=== Mailbox status AppIcon === 
     741 
     742`Position X/Y` 
     743  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). 
     744 
     745  Example: 'X:550  Y:144' 
     746 
     747`Label` 
     748  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. 
     749 
     750`Close gadget iconifies program` 
     751  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. 
     752 
     753=== Save/delete messages === 
     754 
     755`Confirm deletion of [xx] or more messages` 
     756  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. 
     757 
     758`Remove messages immediately` 
     759  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. 
     760 
     761`Save sent messages` 
     762  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. 
     763 
     764=== Message tracking === 
     765 
     766Here you can define how YAM should react if a message's sender has requested a disposition notification (MDN) while writing his/her message. 
     767 
     768 //Ignore//   - The request will be ignored completely and there won't be any report. 
     769 //Autodeny// - The sender will be informed that you don't wish to send a disposition notification for the message. 
     770 //Accept//   - The sender will be informed as requested about the message's disposition. 
     771 //Ask user// - You can decide in each case if you want to ignore, deny or accept the request. 
     772 
     773  Additionally, YAM's reaction can be related to the event activating the disposition notification: 
     774 
     775 //Display//  - The message was read or answered 
     776 //Process//  - The message was bounced or forwarded without reading 
     777 //Delete//   - The message was deleted without reading 
     778 //Filter//   - The message was automatically processed or deleted by a filter 
     779 
     780`Send at once` 
     781  The condition report will be sent immediately if there's a TCP/IP stack running, otherwise it will be saved to the 'Outgoing' folder. 
     782 
     783=== XPK/LhA settings === 
     784 
     785`Packer` 
     786  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. 
     787 
     788  Example: 'NUKE 100%' 
     789 
     790`Pack/protect` 
     791  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. 
     792 
     793  Example:  'HUFF 50%' 
     794 
     795`Archiver` 
     796  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. 
     797 
     798  Example: 'LhA -a -m -i%l a %a' 
     799 
     800[[=#FixLook] 
     801== Look & Feel == 
     802Here YAM will display a list with available themes and a small preview of what it will look like. 
     803 
     804`Activate` 
     805  Activates the selected theme, which requires you to save the configuration and restart YAM, in order to see the new icons. 
     806 
     807`Status bar` 
     808  Will show a status bar at either - top, middle, bottom or don't show any at all. 
     809 
     810`Label` 
     811  Here you can select what the status bar should show. There are a number of different options to select from. 
     812 
     813`Size format` 
     814  Here you can select how YAM will display sizes for mails and mail drawers. 
     815 
     816`Embedded read pane in main window` 
     817  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. 
     818 
     819`Show quick search in main window` 
     820  Shows a quick search field in the main window, for quick searches :) 
     821 
     822== Updates == 
     823Update settings 
     824 
     825`Check for updates` 
     826  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. 
     827 
     828  Below you can also see when exactly the last check was done. 
     829 
     830= Hidden Configuration = 
     831 
     832YAM 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. 
     833 
     834`LetterPart` 
     835  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. 
     836 
     837  Example: 'LetterPart = 2' 
     838 
     839`WriteIndexes` 
     840  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. 
     841 
     842  Example: 'WriteIndexes = 30' 
     843 
     844`AutoSave` 
     845  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. 
     846 
     847  Example: 'AutoSave = 600' 
     848 
     849`SupportSite` 
     850  This is the address of the YAM homepage, used to access the user picture gallery and to request the version check. 
     851 
     852  Example: 'SupportSite = http://yam.ch/' 
     853 
     854`JumpToNewMsg` 
     855  If this option is set to 'Y', YAM will jump to the first new or unread message whenever you select a folder. 
     856 
     857  Example: 'JumpToNewMsg = N' 
     858 
     859`JumpToIncoming` 
     860  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. 
     861 
     862  Example: 'JumpToIncoming = N'  
     863 
     864`AskJumpUnread` 
     865  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. 
     866 
     867  Example: 'AskJumpUnread = N' 
     868 
     869`PrinterCheck` 
     870  YAM does some printer checking before printing a message.  This test can be disabled because it's not fully compatible with some printer drivers. 
     871 
     872  Example: 'PrinterCheck = N' 
     873 
     874`IsOnlineCheck` 
     875  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. 
     876 
     877  Example: 'IsOnlineCheck = N' 
     878 
     879`IOCInterface` 
     880  Specifies which Miami Deluxe/AmiTCP/Genesis interface should be used for the online check (see IsOnlineCheck). 
     881 
     882  Example: 'IOCInterface = ppp1' 
     883 
     884`ConfirmOnQuit` 
     885  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). 
     886 
     887  Example: 'ConfirmOnQuit = Y'  
     888 
     889`HideGUIElements` 
     890  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. 
     891 
     892  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. 
     893 
     894  Example: 'HideGUIElements = 3' 
     895 
     896`LocalCharset` 
     897  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. 
     898 
     899  Example: 'LocalCharset = iso-8859-2' 
     900 
     901`StackSize` 
     902  Sets the stack size for programs which are launched from YAM (e.g. MIME viewers and PGP). 
     903 
     904  Example: 'StackSize = 40000' 
     905 
     906`OverrideFromAddress` 
     907  Setting this option to "Y" will add a recipient string object below the identity chooser in the write window.  
     908  The contents default to the chosen identity's address but can be modified freely.  
     909  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.
