     5Apart from the standard 'Incoming', 'Outgoing', 'Sent' and 'Deleted'
     6folders, you can create any number of additional folders.  These folders
     7are useful e.g. for archiving received and/or sent mail, or for
     8administrating mailing lists.
     10Whenever you create a new folder or edit one that already exists, a
     11settings window will open with the following options:
     15     The name of the folder will appear in the folder listing in the
     16     main window.
     18     Example:  YAM mailing list
     22     This is the path in which the messages, the '''.fconfig''' file and the
     23     '''.index''' file of the actual folder will be saved.  Usually this is a
     24     subdirectory of the actual basic folder directory, but you can
     25     specify any other place, like another hard disk partition for
     26     example.
     28     Example:  YAM_ml
     31'''Max. age'''
     32     If you like, you can make YAM delete messages exceeding a certain
     33     age automatically.  To do so, just drag the slider to select a
     34     value different from zero (which stands for the maximum age of the
     35     mail, in '''days''').  Then switch to the 'Start/Quit' configuration
     36     sheet and activate the option 'Delete old mail'.
     38     '''NOTE:''' Messages with the status 'new' or 'unread' will not be
     39     deleted automatically.
     43     Here you choose if the folder is for incoming and/or sent mail.
     44     This influences the column titles and whose address is displayed
     45     in the message list.
     49     Folders can be protected with a password and/or be compressed if
     50     necessary.  There are the following modes available:
     52     normal                    no password protection, no compression
     53                               + fast
     54                               - no protection of your e-mail from third persons
     55                                 with access to your computer
     57     simple protection         simple password protection, no compression
     58                               + fast
     59                               - your e-mails are protected within YAM only
     61     compressed                XPK compression without password protection
     62                               + saves hard disk space
     63                               - slow, no protection for your e-mail
     65     compressed with password  XPK compression with password protection
     66                               + saves hard disk space, good protection
     67                               - slow
     69     The XPK software package is needed for compressing.  It is not
     70     contained in the YAM archive, but can be downloaded e.g. from
     71     Aminet for free.  The settings for the compression library can be
     72     found at [[Configuration#FixMisc| Miscellaneous ]].
     75'''Sort by'''
     76     Here the primary order of the messages in the chosen folder is
     77     specified.  You can have the mail sorted by message date, date
     78     sent/received, sender, recipient, subject, size or status.
     79     Concerning the message status, the messages will be sorted in
     80     the following orders:
     82       new > unread > read > replied > forwarded (for incoming mail)\\
     83       error sending > hold > in queue > sent (for outgoing mail)\\
     85     Additionally, several flags are also taken into account:
     87       1 important\\
     88       2 marked\\
     89       3 PGP encrypted\\
     90       4 PGP signed\\
     91       5 status report\\
     92       6 contains attachments\\
     94     With the option 'Rev', the order will be reversed (e.g. Z-A
     95     instead of A-Z).
     98'''Then by'''
     99     Here the secondary order of the messages in the chosen folder is
     100     specified.  If for example mails are sorted by subject on a first
     101     instance, messages with the same subject can be sorted by date or
     102     author using this second key.
     105'''AppIcon stats'''
     106     Enable this if you want this folder's statistics to be added to
     107     those shown in the application icon that YAM usually puts on the
     108     Workbench screen.  By default, only the stats for the 'Incoming'
     109     folder are noted there.
     111     Exactly what data appears under the appicon depends on the label
     112     set in the [[Configuration#FixMisc| Miscellaneous settings ]].
     115'''Mailing list support'''
     116     Since not all mailing list servers set the "Reply-To:" field to the
     117     correct address (which would be the mailing list address), YAM can
     118     help you to work around this problem, offering also some other
     119     nice tricks for a good measure.
     121     When you reply to a mail contained in this folder, YAM checks if
     122     the data in the "To:" field of the original message is matched by
     123     the contents of the '''To: pattern''' field -- if they do, the address
     124     entered in the '''To: address''' field will be inserted as the recipient
     125     instead of the recipient's address contained in the original
     126     message.
     128     Additionally, if you have entered a '''From: address''', this will
     129     replace your e-mail address when posting to the mailing list.
     130     This is useful if you use different e-mail addresses for different
     131     mailing lists, or just want to avoid SPAM.
     133     You can also enter a '''Reply-To: address''' in case the mailing list
     134     software doesn't set this.
     136     The '''Autodetect''' button will try to guess what '''To: pattern''' and
     137     '''To: address''' data should be used by scanning the first 5 messages
     138     in the folder using the Smith&Waterman algorithm to search for
     139     similarities between strings.  This should make it easier to find
     140     the correct mailing list pattern.
     142     Lastly, you can select the signature that will be used by default
     143     when replying or posting new messages to this mailing list.
     145     Examples on how to use the mailing list support settings are given
     146     in the [[Tips & tricks| Tips & tricks ]] chapter.
