     5This window will appear when you choose to write a new message or
     6answer or forward an already existing message.  You can open TWO Write
     7windows at a time.  The Write window consists of three sheets, laid out
     8as shown below.  The menu bar is the same for each sheet.
     11   Menu bar: [[Menus#FixWriteText| Text ]] [[Menus#FixWriteEdit| Edit ]] [[Menus#FixWriteAttachments| Attachments ]]  Options
     14  .-----------------------. .------------------.   .--------------------.
     15  |       Message         | |   Attachments    |   |      Options       |

     21  |            The big text edit field on the 'Message'                 |
     22  |            sheet is the internal editor which you                   |
     23  |            can use to enter your message.                           |
     24  |                                                                     |
     25  |                                                                     |

     27  |                                                                     |
     28  `---------------------------------------------------------------------'
     30  `Send now`     `Send later`        `Hold`         `Cancel`
     32These four buttons appear at the bottom of each sheet:
     35'''Send now'''
     36     Prepares the message for sending, moves it to the Outgoing folder
     37     and tries to send the mail at once.  For this option to work
     38     correctly, there must be a TCP/IP stack running and online.
     41'''Send later'''
     42     Prepares the message for sending and copies it to the Outgoing
     43     folder.  Use this button when working offline.
     47     The message will be prepared as described in '''Send later''' and copied
     48     to the Outgoing folder, but will be held back and NOT sent.  Use
     49     this button for unfinished messages, e.g. if you'd like to make
     50     some additions to the e-mail at a later time, and not risk them to
     51     be sent out by mistake.
     55     Use this button if you've changed your mind.  '''BEWARE:''' All input
     56     made in this window will be lost.  But don't worry, a security
     57     requester will popup before YAM really discards any modifications
     58     you have made.  (It won't show up if you haven't made any
     59     modifications in the message itself, though).
     62== Message sheet ==
     64Above the large [[#FixEdit| text editor ]] area there are two header fields and a toolbar.
     68     Insert here the main recipient you wish to send the actual message
     69     to.  You can use names or aliases from the address book or even
     70     full e-mail addresses in case the recipient does not exist in the
     71     address book.  If you wish to enter several recipients, you have to
     72     separate them by inserting commas.
     74     There are several ways of importing here any recipient which can
     75     be found in your address book -- just select the method you feel
     76     more comfortable with:
     78       a. click on the pop-up button to the right, thereby opening the
     79          address book.  Now you can either double click on any entry
     80          you want, or [[Windows#FixDrag| drag ]] it over to the text field holding the left
     81          mouse button.
     83       b. while the address book window is open, you can click the '''To:'''
     84          button there to automatically add the current entry to the
     85          '''To:''' field of your message.  To add several recipients, just
     86          select them one by one and click the '''To:''' button in turn.
     88       c. lastly, a newly introduced and more elegant method is to just
     89          start typing the alias, first name or email address of your
     90          recipient in the '''To:''' field.  This way you are quickly
     91          presented with a dropdown list of the possible matches, taken
     92          from your address book.
     94          <Shift-Return> adds only the recipient address and drops the
     95          real name, whilst pressing <Return> without selecting a recipient
     96          will add the first match in the dropdown list.  Both techniques
     97          can be combined.
     99     If YAM cannot find a name or alias you've inserted manually into
     100     the '''To:''' field, you will get an error report as soon as you try to
     101     send [later] or hold your message.  Please double check your
     102     spelling, or just use one of the selection methods outlined above.
     104     Example:
     106            jdoe,
     110     What the mail is all about.  When a mail is answered, there will be
     111     a '''Re:''' inserted in front of the original subject, whereas when
     112     forwarded a '''(fwd)''' will be added at the end.

     132=== Internal editor ===
     134YAM uses the efficient MUI class TextEditor.mcc for message
     135handling.  Many aspects of the editor, such as keybindings,
     136spellchecking or fonts can be changed in the '''TextEditor''' sheet of the
     137[[Menus#FixSettingsMui| MUI configuration ]].  Although you can modify the keybindings, here
     138is a list of the important default settings in TextEditor 15.9:
     141        <Control-Up>         go to the start of the text\\
     142        <Control-Down>       go to the end of the text\\
     143        <Control-Left>       go to the start of the line\\
     144        <Control-Right>      go to the end of the line\\
     145        <Alt-Up>             previous page\\
     146        <Alt-Down>           next page\\
     147        <Alt-Left>           previous word\\
     148        <Alt-Right>          next word\\
     149        <RAmiga-x>           cut\\
     150        <RAmiga-c>           copy\\
     151        <RAmiga-v>           paste\\
     152        <RAmiga-z>           undo\\
     153        <RAmiga-RShift-z>    redo\\
     154        <Command-Help>       suggest a word\\
     155        <Del>                delete the character\\
     156        <Shift-Backspace>    delete to start of line\\
     157        <Shift-Del>          delete to end of line\\
     158        <Alt-Backspace>      delete to start of word\\
     159        <Alt-Del>            delete to end of word\\
     160        <Alt-Tab>            quit editor\\

     165== Attachment sheet ==
     167You can add one or more files to your message.  This way you can send
     168binary files such as archives, pictures, etc. via e-mail.  You can choose
     169the method of encoding (MIME or UUencoded) and write a comment for each
     170file.  Files can be archived automatically to reduce the size of the
     171resulting message.
     173The attachment list contains five columns: filename, size (in bytes),
     174contents, encoding and description.  You can re-order the files using
     175[[Windows#FixDrag| Drag & Drop ]].
     178=== Buttons and Gadgets ===
     180'''Add file(s)'''
     181     You can select one or more files, which will be added as new
     182     attachments to the list.  YAM recognizes over 20 filetypes
     183     automatically and will fill in the '''MIME type''' field accordingly.
     186'''Pack & add'''
     187     By adding files this way, they will be archived with e.g. LhA, LZX
     188     or ZIP before being actually attached to the message.  Select the
     189     files you would like to add to the archive and then enter an
     190     archive name.  You can define the archiver in the configuration
     191     window, under [[Configuration#FixMisc| Miscellaneous ]].
     195     Removes the selected entries from the list.
     199     Displays the selected entry using one of the programs contained in
     200     the MIME viewers list.  The program used by default is MultiView.
     204     For normal use you should encode your files using MIME
     205     (Base64/QP).  YAM uses ''quoted printable'' encoding for text files and
     206     ''Base64'' for binary files.  If the recipient isn't able to decode
     207     messages in MIME format (because his mailer does not support
     208     this), you can also ''UUencode'' the files.  Messages containing
     209     UUencoded files are still in MIME '''multipart/mixed format''', but
     210     those attachments can be extracted from the message using a
     211     UUdecoder such as '''UUxT'''.  A message generated by YAM may contain
     212     UUencoded attachments as well as attachments in Base64 format.
     215'''MIME type'''
     216     As long as YAM recognizes the filetype of the attachment, the
     217     correct MIME type will be inserted automatically, otherwise the
     218     default setting ('''application/octet-stream''') will be used.  Before
     219     defining a new MIME type, please check that is isn't already part
     220     of the pop-up list.
     222     Additional file types defined in the [[Configuration#FixMime| MIME configuration ]] are
     223     also used automatically.
     225     Example:  image/gif
     229     Here you can enter a comment about the actual attachment.
     231     Example:  Picture from our summer holidays (GIF format)
     234== Options sheet ==
     236The items in the '''Options''' menu correspond to the buttons on this sheet.
     238The layout of this sheet is:
     240                    _________________________________________________
     241          Copies to|_______________________________________________|^|
     242   Hidden copies to|_______________________________________________|^|
     243               From|_______________________________________________|^|
     244           Reply to|_______________________________________________|^|
     245  Additional header|_________________________________________________|
     247      `Send options`           ` Signature`            `Security`
     249=== Header fields ===
     251'''Copies to'''
     252     The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message.
     253     See also the explanation about the '''To:''' field given for the
     254     [[#FixMessageSheet| Message sheet ]].
     257'''Hidden copies to'''
     258     The recipients listed here will receive a copy of the message;
     259     however, unlike the recipients listed in '''Copies to''', they won't
     260     appear in the message headers.  This is useful if you want to
     261     send someone a copy of a message without the other recipient(s)
     262     knowing.
     266     Pretty obvious, really!  YAM will fill this in with your address,
     267     but you might want to change the way your real name appears.
     270'''Reply to'''
     271     This setting is also valid only for the current message and will
     272     be inserted instead of the usual "Reply-To:" address as specified
     273     in the program settings.  Leave this blank unless it needs to be
     274     different from the e-mail address in the "From:" header.
     277'''Additional header'''
     278     If for any reason it should become necessary to add one or more
     279     special header lines to a message, you can enter these here.
     280     Several lines must be separated by inserting '\n'.  YAM will
     281     prepend the entered headers with '''X-YAM-Header-''' in the resulting
     282     message.
     284     Example:  Keywords: Amiga, YAM\nPassword: CuriosityKilledTheCat
     287=== Send options ===
     289'''Delete after sending'''
     290     Activate this option if you want the message to be deleted right
     291     after being transmitted, instead of being copied to the 'Sent'
     292     folder.
     295'''Disposition Notification'''
     296     Activate this option to request the recipient's e-mail program to
     297     let you know about what the recipient did with your message, e.g.
     298     if the message has been read by the recipient or if the recipient
     299     has deleted or forwarded it.  Please note that there are only a
     300     handful of e-mail programs which support this function, as well as
     301     the fact that the recipient might forbid the sending of any status
     302     report on e-mails.  Therefore, not getting any information even with
     303     this option in use does not necessarily mean that the message has
     304     not been read.  The command to send a status report is contained
     305     in the '''Disposition-Notification-To:''' header field.  At the time of
     306     writing this document, the Internet standard for Message Disposition
     307     Notifications (MDN) was still being formulated.
     310'''Add personal info'''
     311     Check this option to create a special '''X-SenderInfo:''' header
     312     containing personal data like your postal address, phone number,
     313     homepage, date of birth or URL of your picture.  If the recipient
     314     works with YAM too, (s)he will be able to create an address book
     315     entry and fill it with your data.  To get this to work, add an
     316     entry in your address book containing your data (YAM will find
     317     your entry based on the email address).  If one exists, enter
     318     the WWW address of a small photo of yourself in the "address book"
     319     section of the configuration.
     323     Specify here how important the message is for the recipient.
     324     Messages noted as important will usually be displayed with an
     325     exclamation mark in the status line and put into first place by
     326     automatic mail sorting.  The level of importance is stored in
     327     the '''Importance:''' header.
     330=== Signature ===
     332Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative
     333signatures, or switch it off completely for this message.
     336=== Security ===
     338Select here which security measures you want to take for this message.
     340    none: Normal mail transfer.\\
     341    sign: The message will be signed with your PGP public key and saved in multipart/signed format.  The text of the message will be readable without PGP.\\
     342    encrypt: The message will be encrypted using the recipient's PGP key and saved in multipart/encrypted format.\\
     343    sign and encrypt: This is a combination of the two previous options, allowing the recipient to check the sender's identity.\\
     344    send anonymously: The mail will be sent using an ANON service, so the sender will stay anonymous.\\
     345    default: The mail will use whatever security measures have been selected for this recipient in the address book, or "none" if this recipient cannot be found there.\\
     347Further information about PGP and security issues can be found in the
     348[[What is e-mail#FixPgp| PGP ]] and [[Configuration#FixSecurity| Configuration/Security ]] chapters.
     351== Glossary ==
     353YAM's Glossary acts as a place to collect blocks of text which you
     354may use fairly frequently, such as templates for letters, greeting
     355phrases or frequently asked questions.  The text can be as long as
     356desired, extending over several lines.  Using the '''Edit/Glossary''' menu
     357item or the <RAmiga-D> shortcut you can go straight from the
     358[[#FixEdit| internal editor ]] into the glossary.  Each entry has a name (e.g. "ys"
     359for "Yours sincerely") which you can see in the left-hand part of the
     360window.  Click on the name and you can edit the entry in the right-hand
     361side of the window.  A double click on the name pastes the text block at
     362the current cursor position and then closes the window.
     365=== Function of the buttons ===
     368     Creates a new entry in the glossary.
     371'''Add selection'''
     372     Creates a new entry in the glossary using the block marked in the
     373     text editor.  If no block is currently marked, YAM will try to
     374     paste the contents of the clipboard.
     378     Deletes the selected entry from the glossary.
     382     Pastes the highlighted entry into the text editor, at the current
     383     cursor position.
