  • es:Documentation/Menus

    v1 v1  
     3= Menu entries =
     5== Main window ==
     8=== Project menu ===
     11     Shows [[User license| Copyright Information ]] for this program.
     14'''Project/About MUI'''
     15     Shows copyright and version information for [[User license#FixMui| MUI ]].
     18'''Project/Check version'''
     19     Fetches information about the newest version of YAM from the YAM
     20     homepage.  Make sure that you are online before calling this
     21     function.  YAM then tells you whether there is an update for
     22     your version.  The button [Visit Homepage] will then start an
     23     [[Configuration#FixScripts| ARexx script ]] which connects your browser to the YAM homepage.
     26'''Project/Show last message'''
     27     Shows recent error messages.
     31     Forces a "warm start" of YAM.  You can use this to login in again
     32     using [[Windows/Userswindow| another username ]], for instance.
     36     This switches the program to iconified mode.  The icon will still
     37     show the [[Windows/Mainwindow#FixStatus| status ]] of those folders for whom the "AppIcon stats" has
     38     been activated in the [[Windows/Foldersettings| folder settings ]]; also, the periodic mail
     39     check and any [[ARexx API| ARexx ]] scripts remain active.  The appearance of the
     40     mailbox icons can be changed, if you want -- all you have to do is
     41     to put new files '''''', '''''', '''''' and ''''''
     42     into YAM's '''/Icons''' directory.
     46     Exit from YAM.
     49=== Folder menu ===
     52'''Folder/New folder...'''
     53     Creates a new folder and inserts it below the current one.  If the
     54     folder directory already exists (e.g. a folder of another user),
     55     select "Existing directory".  To create a new folder you can either
     56     use YAM's "Internal defaults" or copy the settings from the current
     57     folder ("Like current").  Now a [[Windows/Foldersettings| configuration panel ]] opens where
     58     you can modify the properties of the new folder.
     61'''Folder/New folder group...'''
     62     Creates a new folder group and inserts it at the end of the
     63     folder list.  Groups are useful to group your folders in
     64     categories, saving also precious state space in your folder list.
     65     Folders can also be nested, i.e. you can insert a group into
     66     another group.
     70     Opens a [[Windows/Foldersettings| configuration panel ]] where you can modify the properties
     71     of the current folder.  If a group is selected, only its name can
     72     be changed here.
     76     Removes the current (user defined) folder, asking for confirmation
     77     first.  When a group is deleted, its contents simply move one place
     78     up in the tree.
     81'''Folder/Order >>  Save | Reset'''
     82     Saves or restores the order of the folders in their [[Windows/Mainwindow#FixFolderList| list ]].
     83     This order is also saved when modifing the folder settings.
     87     Opens the [[Windows/Searchwindow| Search window ]], which allows you to find any particular
     88     message.
     92     Applies the user defined [[Configuration#FixFilters| filters ]] to all messages in the current
     93     folder.  Filters are of the form 'On query, take action', the
     94     options being defined in the configuration settings.
     97'''Folder/Apply Spam filter'''
     98     Applies the Spam filter to all messages in the current folder.
     101'''Folder/Empty trash'''
     102     Actually deletes the messages in the 'Trash' folder.
     105'''Folder/Update index'''
     106     Scans the directory for the current folder and builds a new index
     107     file.  Normally YAM updates the index file automatically, as
     108     needed.  However it can be useful to force an index update after
     109     a crash or in the event of a problem.
     112'''Folder/Flush indices'''
     113     Removes the indices of the user defined folders, which is helpful
     114     if you're low on memory.  If you change to one of these folders at
     115     a later time, the index will be reloaded from the hard disk.
     119     Allows the import of a mail file created by a different application.
     120     The file must be in standard MBOX mailbox format as generated by
     121     external mail server client programs like AmiPOP or IMAP clients.
     122     Such a file may contain several messages, which are identified by
     123     their "From:" and "Date:" headers.
     127     Saves all the messages in the current folder to a single file,
     128     so that they can be read by a different e-mail client (see the
     129     previous option).
     132'''Folder/Send queued mail'''
     133     Transmits all messages in the Outgoing mailbox (except for those
     134     which are on 'Hold').
     137'''Folder/Exchange mail'''
     138     First fetches new mail from your mail server and then sends the
     139     messages in the Outgoing mailbox.  This simply combines the
     140     actions of 'Get new mail' and 'Send queued mail'.
     143'''Folder/Get new mail'''
     144     Attempts to connect to the mail server, checks whether there is
     145     new mail waiting and if so downloads it into the 'Incoming'
     146     mailbox.  If you have specified more than one [[Configuration#FixPOP3| POP3 account ]],
     147     those marked as "Active" will all be checked in turn.
     150'''Folder/Check single account'''
     151     If you have set up several POP3 accounts, you can use this function
     152     to check any single account.
     155=== Message menu ===
     159     Loads the selected message into the [[Windows/Readwindow| Read window ]].
     163     Allows you to edit a message you have composed earlier.
     167     Moves one or more messages into another folder.  You can also do
     168     this by [[Windows#FixDrag| dragging ]] the message(s) from the message list into the
     169     [[Windows/Mainwindow#FixFolderList| folder list ]] and dropping them onto the desired destination.
     173     Allows you to duplicate a message.  The copy is identical to the
     174     original apart from its filename on disk.
     178     Moves one or more messages to the 'Deleted' folder (from which
     179     they can be recovered if needed).  If you want messages actually to
     180     be deleted immediately, check "Remove messages immediately" in the
     181     [[Configuration#FixMisc| Miscellaneous ]] configuration settings.  The <DEL> key works as
     182     a keyboard shortcut for this menu item, while <Shift-Del> forces
     183     immediate deletion from the hard disk, regardless of the
     184     configuration settings.
     188     Sends the readable part (text and headers) of the message(s) to the
     189     printer.
     193     Saves the text (and headers) of one or more messages, creating
     194     a separate file for each message.  Should you want to save all
     195     the messages in the folder to a single file in mailbox (MBOX)
     196     format, use [[#FixFolderExport| Folder/Export ]] instead.
     199'''Message/Attachments >>  Save'''
     200     Saves the attached files from one or more messages in a directory
     201     you select.
     204'''Message/Attachments >>  Crop'''
     205     Deletes, without further warning, the MIME attachments from one or
     206     more messages, in order to save storage space.  A notice about the
     207     deleted data is written into any message cropped in this way.
     211     Saves one or more messages to a single file, so that they can be
     212     read by a different e-mail client (see also [[#FixFolderImport| Folder/Import... ]]).
     216     Opens the [[Windows/Writewindow| Write window ]], in which you can compose a new message.
     220     Use this to reply to a message which someone has sent to you.
     221     Subject and recipient headers are filled in automatically and the
     222     original text is quoted.  It is also possible to select several
     223     messages which will all be quoted in the same reply and sent back
     224     to the original senders (''Multi-reply'').
     228     This lets you send the contents of an e-mail on to another
     229     recipient.  The subject and the body text are copied across whereas
     230     a new message header is created.  At the beginning and the end of
     231     the quoted text YAM inserts the phrases for forwarding, which you
     232     can define in the [[Configuration#FixReplyForward| Reply ]] settings in the configuration.  You can
     233     also select multiple messages, in which case these are combined
     234     into a single forwarded message (''Multi-forward'').
     238     This lets you send a message on to another recipient, with no
     239     visible changes at all.  Only the '''To:''' field of the header is
     240     changed and a couple of '''Resent:''' fields are added; the phrases
     241     defined for forwarded messages are not used here.
     244'''Message/Select >>  All | None | Toggle'''
     245     Selects all the messages in the current folder, clears any
     246     selection or toggles the selection (i.e. exchanges selected and
     247     unselected items), respectively.
     250'''Message/Save address...'''
     251     The address of the sender of the selected message (or the
     252     recipient's, depending on which type of mailbox is open) is added
     253     to your [[Windows/Addressbook| address book ]].  If multiple messages are selected or if
     254     a message has several recipients, then you get the option of
     255     creating a new distribution list.
     258'''Message/Set status >> Marked | Unmarked | Read | Unread | Hold | Queued | Spam | No Spam | | All as Read'''
     259     This changes the status of one or more messages.  Thus you can
     260     release held messages in the Outgoing mailbox, mark unread
     261     messages as read or manually mark suspicious mails as spam.
     264'''Message/Change subject...'''
     265     This alters the subject of one or more messages, so you can amend
     266     irrelevant '''Subject:''' fields in messages you have received.  To
     267     preserve the capability of tracing a thread back, the original
     268     subject is saved in the message headers as '''X-Original-Subject:'''.
     272     Makes a connection to the mail server and transmits the selected
     273     messages.  If you want to send all the messages in the Outgoing
     274     folder, then it is better to choose [[#FixFolderSend| Folder/Send queued mail ]].
     277=== Settings menu ===
     280'''Settings/Address book...'''
     281     Lets you edit the entries in the [[Windows/Addressbook| address book ]].
     285     Opens the [[Configuration| configuration window ]], in which you can change YAM's
     286     settings.
     290     Opens the [[Windows/Userswindow| users window ]], where you can add new users
     291     ("Multi-User").
     295     Opens the settings window for [[User license#FixMui| MUI ]], where you can specify
     296     virtually all of the visual features of YAM, including fonts,
     297     palette, screen mode, background, borders, gadgets, keyboard
     298     shortcuts and so on.  Please see the MUI documentation for more
     299     information.  YAM utilises several MUI classes which were not in
     300     the original release of MUI.  These MUI modules are:
     303        NListviews: some of the lists in YAM, e.g. the message list\\
     304           Options: colors, fonts, miscellaneous, scrollbars.\\
     306           Toolbar: icon buttons in the YAM windows.\\
     307           Options: labels, spacing, fonts.\\
     309        TextEditor: internal editor as well as message display in the Read window\\
     310           Options: fonts, colors, cursor, separator, keybindings, spell checker.\\
     312         NListtree: structured lists: address book, folder list\\
     313           Options: appearance of lines and group icons.\\
     315      BetterString: general one-line text input field.\\
     316           Options: font, palette, cursor.\\
     319=== Scripts menu ===
     321'''Scripts/Execute script...'''
     322     Lets you select an [[ARexx API| ARexx ]] script and run it.
     325== Write window ==
     328=== Text menu ===
     332     Clears any text to start a new message.
     336     Opens an existing text file.
     339'''Text/Insert as >>  Plain'''
     340     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position.
     343'''Text/Insert as >>  Quoted'''
     344     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position, prefacing each
     345     line with the quote character (usually '''>''').
     348'''Text/Insert as >>  Alternate Quoted'''
     349     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position, prefacing each
     350     line with an alternate quote character (usually '''|''').
     353'''Text/Insert as >>  ROT13 encoded'''
     354     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position and replaces
     355     each letter with the one 13 characters ahead on the alphabet,
     356     cycling back from Z to A (so A->M, B->N, M->A) as appropriate.
     357     This very simple code is used for example for indecent humour.
     360'''Text/Save as...'''
     361     Saves the current message (only the text part, without any header)
     362     to a file of your choice.
     365'''Text/Launch editor'''
     366     This lets you compose your message with your favourite editor as
     367     specified in the [[Configuration#FixWrite| Write ]] configuration.  Note that a few functions
     368     such as text styles and the [[Windows/Writewindow#FixGlossary| Glossary ]] may only be supported
     369     correctly in the internal editor.  Whenever you save in the
     370     external editor, the text in the internal editor is updated, due
     371     to the way the operating system interprets the file notification
     372     when you save the temporary file.
     375=== Edit menu ===
     379     Cuts the marked text and saves it to the clipboard.
     383     Places in the clipboard a copy of the marked text.
     387     Inserts the text on the clipboard at the current cursor position.
     390'''Edit/Paste as >>  Quoted'''
     391     Inserts the text on the clipboard at the current cursor position,
     392     prefacing each line with the quote character (usually '''>''').
     395'''Edit/Paste as >>  Alternate Quoted'''
     396     Inserts the text on the clipboard at the current cursor position,
     397     prefacing each line with the alternative quote character (usually
     398     '''|''').
     401'''Edit/Paste as >>  ROT13 encoded'''
     402     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position, applying ROT-13
     403     encoding (see also under [[#FixTextInsertROT| Text/Insert as/ROT13 encoded ]]).
     407     Undoes the last change made in the editor.
     411     Restores the change just undone with 'Edit/Undo'.
     415     Opens the [[Windows/Writewindow#FixGlossary| Glossary ]] window.
     418'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Bold'''
     419     Toggles bold type on or off for a marked block or for text entered
     420     subsequently.  In the resulting message, text in bold type is
     421     delimited by asterisks, thus: bold -> *bold*
     424'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Italic'''
     425     Toggles italic type on or off for a marked block or for text
     426     entered subsequently.  In the resulting message, text in italics
     427     is delimited by slashes, thus: italic -> /italic/
     430'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Underlined'''
     431     Toggles underlining on or off for a marked block or for text
     432     entered subsequently.  In the resulting message, underlined text is
     433     delimited by underline characters, thus: underline -> _underline_
     436'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Alternative color'''
     437     Toggles colored type on or off for a marked block or for text
     438     entered subsequently.  The color is defined in the
     439     [[Configuration#FixRead| Read configuration ]].  In the resulting message, the colored text
     440     is delimited by hash signs, thus: color -> #color#
     443'''Edit/Separators >>  Thin | Thick'''
     444     Inserts a separator at the current cursor position.  This is done by
     445     inserting an extra line containing either '''<sb>''' or '''<tsb>'''.  YAM and
     446     other (MUI-) mail programs interpret this character sequence as a
     447     separator.
     450'''Edit/Emoticons >>  Happy | Indifferent | Sad/angry | Ironic'''
     451     Inserts a 'smiley' at the current cursor position.  Smilies express
     452     your feelings about the topic and compensate for the loss of
     453     intonation when expressing yourself in writing rather than speech
     454     (see also [[What is e-mail#FixNetiquette| E-Mail Netiquette ]]).
     457'''Edit/Type and spell'''
     458     Switches automatic spellchecking on or off.  Spellchecking is a
     459     function of the Texteditor class and must be configured in
     460     [[#FixSettingsMui| Settings/MUI ]].  It must use an external program like '''AlphaSpell'''.
     462     If you type in a word which is not in the dictionary, the screen
     463     flashes (and you will get an audible signal, too, if you have set
     464     this up in your Workbench Sound preferences).  Use <Amiga-Help>
     465     to get a list of suggestions for the correct spelling.
     469=== Attachments menu ===
     472'''Attachments/Add file...'''
     473     Equivalent to the [Add file] button in the [[Windows/Writewindow#FixAttachmentSheet| Attachments ]] sheet.
     476'''Attachments/Add clipboard'''
     477     Adds the contents of the clipboard as an attachment to your
     478     message, so you can easily include documents from other
     479     applications.
     482'''Attachments/Add PGP key'''
     483     Use this to attach your [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| public PGP key ]] to the message.
     484     The recipient can add this to his "keyring" and will then
     485     be able to send you messages signed and/or encrypted with PGP.
     487== Read window ==
     490=== Message menu ===
     493     Sends the current message to the message editor.  This option
     494     is only available for "Outgoing mail"-like folders.
     498     Moves the current message to a different folder.
     502     Creates a copy of the current message.  With the exception of the
     503     filename, the copy is identical to the original.
     507     Deletes the current message and loads the next one into the Read
     508     window.  Unless the option '''Remove messages immediately''' is enabled
     509     in the [[Configuration#FixMisc| Miscellaneous ]] configuration settings, the message is
     510     actually moved into the '''Deleted''' folder, from which it can be
     511     recovered if needed.  The <Del> key works as a convenient keyboard
     512     shortcut, while <Shift-Del> forces an immediate (irreversible)
     513     deletion, no matter which configuration settings are in use.
     517     Sends the current message, or a part of it, to the printer.  A
     518     requester opens to let you choose whether to print the original
     519     message without decoding (raw format), print the decoded text as
     520     diplayed, or print an attached text file.  Note that you cannot
     521     print binary data such as graphics; for that purpose you must use
     522     the relevant print option in the appropriate [[Configuration#FixMime| MIME viewer ]].
     526     Saves the current message or a part of it to your hard disk,
     527     floppy, etc.  Again a requester appears to let you choose whether
     528     to save the message in raw format, the decoded message (as it
     529     appears in the Read window), or to save one of the attached files.
     532'''Message/Attachments >>  Display...'''
     533     Displays the current message or part of it using the MIME viewer
     534     selected in the [[Configuration#FixMime| MIME configuration ]].  You can choose whether to
     535     display the message in raw format (to check for errors) or to view
     536     one of the attached files.  If nothing happens, check the settings
     537     for MIME viewers in the configuration.
     540'''Message/Attachments >>  Save all...'''
     541     Saves all the files attached to the current message to the
     542     directory you select.
     545'''Message/Attachments >>  Crop'''
     546     Deletes all the attached files for the current message in order to
     547     save disk space.  '''BEWARE:''' these files are not sent to the '''Deleted'''
     548     folder, so be sure that you don't want to keep any of them!  This
     549     function only applies to messages in [[What is e-mail#FixMime| MIME format ]].  A notice is
     550     added to the end of the message about the removed files.
     554     Opens the [[Windows/Writewindow| Write window ]] so you can compose a new message.
     558     Use this to reply to the current message.  Subject and recipient
     559     fields are filled in automatically and the original message is
     560     quoted, unless the [[Configuration#FixReplyForward| Reply ]] configuration settings say otherwise.
     564     Use this to forward the contents of the message to another
     565     recipient.  The subject and the message body are automatically
     566     copied and a new message header is created.  The text for
     567     forwarding defined in the [[Configuration#FixReplyForward| Reply ]] configuration is inserted in the
     568     message.
     572     Use this to send the original, unaltered message to another
     573     recipient.  The only changes made are to enter a new '''To:''' header
     574     while YAM adds a couple of '''Resent:''' headers based on the original
     575     "To:" header.  The text for forwarded messages (as defined in the
     576     configuration) is not used here.
     579'''Message/Save address...'''
     580     The address of the sender (or the recipient, depending on the type
     581     of folder) of the current message is added to your [[Windows/Addressbook| address book ]].
     582     If the message has multiple recipients, you have the option of
     583     creating a new distribution list.
     586'''Message/Set status'''
     587     Lets you change the status of the current message to >>
     588     Marked | Unmarked | Read | Unread | Hold | Queued | Spam | No Spam
     591'''Message/Change subject...'''
     592     This lets you change the subject of the current message, so you
     593     can amend uninformative "Subject:" headers on some messages you have
     594     received.  The original subject is saved in a '''X-Original-Subject:'''
     595     header, to facilitate following a thread back.
     598=== Navigation menu ===
     601'''Navigation/Next message'''
     602     This displays the next message, i.e. the one below the current
     603     message in the main window.  Shortcut: <cursor right>
     606'''Navigation/Previous message'''
     607     This displays the previous message, i.e. the one above the current
     608     message in the main window.  Shortcut: <cursor left>
     611'''Navigation/Next unread message'''
     612     This displays the next unread message below the current message in
     613     the main window.  If there are no more unread messages below the
     614     current message in the current folder but there is some in one of
     615     the following folders, you will be notified about it and asked if
     616     you want to jump to that folder and continue reading there.
     617     Shortcut: <Shift-cursor right>
     620'''Navigation/Previous unread message'''
     621     This displays the previous unread message above the current
     622     message in the main window.  If there are no more unread messages
     623     above the current message in the current folder but there is some
     624     in one of the previous folders, you will be notified about it and
     625     asked if you want to jump to that folder and continue reading
     626     there.  Shortcut: <Shift-cursor left>
     629'''Navigation/Next message in thread'''
     630     This displays the message which replies to the current message.
     631     This allows you to e.g. follow a dialogue between yourself and
     632     another person, regardless of what other messages are there.
     633     However, please note that to find the reply in a different folder,
     634     YAM must load the index files for all the folders, and this can
     635     take a while.  YAM compares the [[What is e-mail#FixHeader| Message-ID ]] header of the current
     636     message with the ''In-Reply-To:'' header of the other messages.  If no
     637     answer can be found, the screen will flash briefly.
     640'''Navigation/Previous message in thread'''
     641     Loads the message to which the current message is replying (see
     642     the item above).
     645=== PGP menu ===
     648'''PGP/Extract public key(s)'''
     649     If the sender of the current message has attached his
     650     [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| public PGP key ]], you can copy this to your "key ring".  You can
     651     then use this if this person sends you any encrypted message.
     654'''PGP/Check PGP signature'''
     655     Verifies the signature of the current message.  This works only
     656     with PGP signed messages and serves to ensure that the message has
     657     not been tampered with and is really from the sender it claims to
     658     be.
     661'''PGP/Save decrypted message'''
     662     On the grounds of security, a [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| PGP encrypted ]] message is saved to
     663     the hard disk as it stands.  To open it, you have to use the key
     664     each time.
     666     You can use this menu item to save the decrypted message to the
     667     hard disk, overwriting its PGP encrypted counterpart.
     670=== Settings menu ===
     672These choices only apply to the current session; when you open a new
     673Read window, the [[Configuration#FixRead| Read ]] configuration settings are used.
     676'''Settings/No headers | Short headers | Full headers'''
     677     Use these to select how much header information you want to see in
     678     the Read window.
     681'''Settings/No sender info | Data fields only | Data and image'''
     682     This selects how much of the information saved in your [[Windows/Addressbook| address book ]]
     683     about the sender is to be displayed.
     686'''Settings/Wrap headers'''
     687     Choose whether to show a long header on one line or to break it
     688     across two or more.  In the former case you will need to use the
     689     horizontal scrollbar in order to see all the information.
     693     YAM will use the characters '_', '/', '*' and '#' to render
     694     underlined, italic, bold and colored text respectively.  For
     695     certain documents, such as source code, this can complicate things
     696     as some characters will be suppressed.  Thus, you have the choice
     697     of temporarily switch the rendering of text styles on or off.
     700== Address book ==
     702'''Address book/New'''
     703     Starts a new address book; all existing entries of the address book
     704     currently resident in RAM will be deleted.  '''CAUTION:''' Save your old
     705     address book with another name before selecting this option!!
     708'''Address book/Open...'''
     709     Opens an existing address book from your hard disk.  The address
     710     book currently resident in RAM will be replaced.
     712     If you try opening a file that does not seem to be a valid YAM
     713     address book, you will be offered the chance to load it as a list
     714     of email addresses, with one address per line.  Items can be
     715     specified as
     717      <> Real name
     719     or
     723     because names are optional.  YAM will automatically create aliases
     724     for the new items.
     727'''Address book/Append...'''
     728     Loads another address book from your hard disk and appends its
     729     contents to the address book currently resident in RAM.  See
     730     also the previous option.
     733'''Address book/Save'''
     734     Saves the address book to your hard disk.
     737'''Address book/Save as...'''
     738     Saves the address book with a name of your choice so you can keep
     739     several different address book files.
     742'''Address book/Find...'''
     743     Searches the address book for a certain string.  See [[Windows/Addressbook#FixToolbar| TOOLBAR ]]/Find
     744     for more info.
     747'''Address book/Print...'''
     748     Prints the whole address book.  Select '''Short format''' to print a
     749     single line for each entry, or '''Long format''' for a more verbose
     750     printout, needing several lines for each entry.
     753'''Entry/New person...'''
     754'''Entry/New distribution list...'''
     755'''Entry/New group...'''
     756     They open the [[Windows/Addressbook#FixEdit| Edit address window ]] to add a new entry to the
     757     address book.  The appearance of the window depends on the type
     758     of entry.
     762     The selected entry can be modified in the [[Windows/Addressbook#FixEdit| Edit address window ]].
     766     Duplicates the selected entry.  The alias will be adjusted
     767     automatically.
     771     Deletes the selected entry from the address book.
     775     Prints the selected entry immediately.  (Who would have guessed it?
     776     ;) ).
     780     Sorts the address book by alias, last name, first name,
     781     description or e-mail address.  Please note that 'First name' is
     782     related to the first word in the 'Full name' text field while
     783     'Last name' is related to the last word in this text field.
