     21By default, the list displays four columns as above, but you can (of
     22course) change the [[Configuration#FixAddressbook| address book configuration ]] to include phone numbers,
     23for example.  You can click and drag the column dividers to reposition them.
     25Double click on an entry to see or edit the information in the
     26[[#FixEdit| Edit address ]] window.  In addition to the fields mentioned, you can
     27enter the postal address, PGP key, homepage URL, date of birth and a
     30An entry must contain at least the real name and some e-mail
     31address.  The point of the Alias is to save typing; you can put a short
     32nickname, or initials, into the '''To:''' field of an e-mail message and let
     33YAM fill in the details.  For this to work, the alias obviously has to
     34be unique for each entry.
     36In addition to personal entries, the address book can also contain
     37''Lists ''of individual recipients which can be invoked with a single
     38alias.  Lists are best used for circular e-mails, and are marked with
     39the list symbol ([[Image(]]).
     41Both individual entries and lists can be put into Groups, which are
     42like subdirectories, used to keep the address book clearly arranged.
     43Group names are displayed in bold.  You can open a group to display the
     44names in it by clicking on the little arrow in front of their name.
     46Use [[Windows#FixDrag| drag & drop ]] to move an entry from one group into another.
     48== Toolbar ==
     50'''Save''' [[Image(]]
     51     Saves the address book to your hard disk.
     54'''Find''' [[Image(]]
     55     Searches the address book for a specific text string.  All variables
     56     contained in the database will be searched with full support of
     57     [[Pattern matching| AmigaDOS patterns ]].  If the result of the search is positive the
     58     alias and the name of the found entry will be displayed.  You can
     59     then do another search or edit the found entry.  For example,
     61            Anna#?
     63     finds all Annas contained in the address book.
     66'''Person''' [[Image(]], '''List''' [[Image(]], '''Group''' [[Image(]]
     67     All three buttons open the [[#FixEdit| Edit address ]] window to add a new entry
     68     to the address book; however, the appearance of the window depends
     69     on the type of entry, since the information stored is different.
     72'''Edit''' [[Image(]]
     73     This also opens the Edit address window, to see or edit the
     74     information stored.  Again, the layout depends on the type of entry.
     77'''Delete''' [[Image(]]
     78     Deletes the selected entry from the address book.
     81'''Print''' [[Image(]]
     82     Prints the selected entry.
     85'''Unfold''' [[Image(]]
     86     Unfolds all groups (subdirectories) of the address book so all
     87     entries will be visible.
     90'''Fold''' [[Image(]]
     91     Folds all groups (subdirectories) of the address book so only the
     92     entries at the top of the hierarchy will be visible.
     96     Uses the selected entry as the primary recipient of a new e-mail.
     97     If the address book window has been opened from the main window,
     98     a new 'Write' window will appear.
     102     Uses the selected entry as secondary recipient of a new e-mail.
     103     If the address book window has been opened from the main window,
     104     a new 'Write' window will appear.
     108     Uses the selected entry as recipient of a hidden copy of a new
     109     e-mail.  If the address book window has been opened from the main
     110     window, a new 'Write' window will appear.
     113== Entering addresses ==
     115In this window a single address book entry can be edited.  According
     116to the kind of entry (person, list or group), you will see a different
     117set of editing fields.  Click [Okay] to accept the changes, or [Cancel]
     118if you change your mind.
     120=== PERSON ===
     122==== Electronic mail ====
     125     An 'Alias' is a convenient short name that identifies the address
     126     book entry unambiguously.  Its function is to save typing -- you can
     127     put the alias into the "To:" field of a message, and YAM will fill
     128     in the details when sending the message.  If you leave this field
     129     blank, YAM will create an alias for the entry on its own.
     131     Example:  JohnD
     134'''Real name'''
     135     The person's first name and surname.
     137     Example:  John Doe
     140'''Email address'''
     141     The Internet mail address to use to send mail to this person.
     143     Example:
     146'''PGP key ID'''
     147     The hexadecimal code of this person's PGP public key, needed to
     148     send the recipient a PGP encrypted message.  Click the pop-up
     149     button to select the key from your public keyring; PGP must be
     150     installed on your system and the key you're looking for must be
     151     there.
     153     Example:  0x709B40C3
     157     The URL for the person's homepage in the World Wide Web.  YAM
     158     can connect to this address via your browser, provided that the
     159     appropriate script is specified in the [[Configuration#FixScripts| scripts ]] configuration
     160     for 'When double clicking a URL' or you have '''OpenURL''' installed,
     161     in which case the latter will get priority.  All you have to do
     162     is to click on the button to the right of the textfield.
     164     Example:  !
     168     The security level to use by default when sending email to this
     169     person.
     172==== Snail mail ====
     175     Street and house number of the postal address.
     177     Example:  43 High street
     180'''City / ZIP'''
     181     City and (ZIP) postcode (who would have guessed that...).
     183     Example:  Shrewsbury SY1 3PE
     186'''State / Country'''
     187     State/Country where this person lives.
     189     Example:  Shropshire, England
     192'''Phone number(s)'''
     193     One or more phone numbers (voice, FAX, mobile phone, whatever...).
     196==== Miscellaneous ====
     198'''Description''' (applies to person, list or group)
     199     Any comment you'd like to have stored to describe the current
     200     entry.
     202     Example:  My beloved one ;-)
     205'''Date of birth'''
     206     The person's date of birth.  Enter it in the format DD-MMM-YYYY.
     208     Example:  12-Dec-1967
     211==== Portrait ====
     214     Here you can select a picture (preferably a portrait) of the
     215     person.  Since YAM uses the datatypes.library, you may use any
     216     kind of picture format as long as you've installed the datatypes
     217     needed for displaying it.  If you desire so, this picture will
     218     show up whenever you display a message written by this person
     219     (see 'Sender info' in the [[Configuration#FixRead| Read ]] configuration).
     223     You can find a steadily growing number of portraits of other
     224     users of YAM on the YAM homepage.  YAM can access this data bank
     225     automatically -- all you need to do is enter the name and/or the
     226     e-mail address, connect to the Internet and click the '''Download'''
     227     button.  YAM starts by getting a list of available photos and
     228     searching it for the named person.  If found, any information
     229     missing from the address book entry (Name, e-mail address and
     230     homepage) will be made good and the picture downloaded and saved
     231     in the gallery.
     233=== LIST ===
     236     Same as described above.
     239'''Return address'''
     240     If you'd like to maintain a small mailing list using a YAM
     241     distribution list, you will have to correct the "Reply-To:"
     242     addresses of the original messages, otherwise the answer to
     243     an e-mail would be returned to the message's author and not
     244     to the mailing list as you would probably want.  Enter here
     245     the return address you'd like to use, or click the pop-up
     246     button to open the address book window and then drag an entry
     247     from there into this field.
     249     Example:
     252'''Mailing list name'''
     253     When maintaining a mailing list by using a YAM distribution list,
     254     enter the mailing list's name here.  This name will appear in the
     255     '''To:''' header field to help the recipient to sort the mail correctly
     256     by using filters.
     258     Example:  discussion-ML
     262     A list of all current members of the distribution list.  You may
     263     enter aliases, names or complete e-mail addresses.  Click on [New]
     264     to add a new list member, [Delete] to delete the highlighted entry
     265     or [Sort] to have all entries sorted alphabetically.
     269=== GROUP ===
     271   Only the '''Alias''' and '''Description''' fields apply in this case.
