     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.

     32These four buttons appear at the bottom of each sheet: 
     33 
     34 
     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. 
     39 
     40 
     41'''Send later''' 
     42     Prepares the message for sending and copies it to the Outgoing 
     43     folder.  Use this button when working offline. 
     44 
     45 
     46'''Hold''' 
     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. 
     52 
     53 
     54'''Cancel''' 
     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). 
     60 
     61[[=#FixMessageSheet]] 
     62== Message sheet == 
     63 
     64Above the large [[#FixEdit| text editor ]] area there are two header fields and a toolbar. 
     65 
     66 
     67'''To''' 
     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. 
     73 
     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: 
     77 
     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. 
     82 
     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. 
     87 
     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. 
     93 
     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. 
     98 
     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. 
     103 
     104     Example: 
     105 
     106            jdoe, boss@work.whyme.com 
     107 
     108 
     109'''Subject''' 
     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 === 
     133 
     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: 
     139 
     140 
     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\\

     163 
     164[[=#FixAttachmentSheet]] 
     165== Attachment sheet == 
     166 
     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. 
     172 
     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 ]]. 
     176 
     177 
     178=== Buttons and Gadgets === 
     179 
     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. 
     184 
     185 
     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 ]]. 
     192 
     193 
     194'''Delete''' 
     195     Removes the selected entries from the list. 
     196 
     197 
     198'''Display''' 
     199     Displays the selected entry using one of the programs contained in 
     200     the MIME viewers list.  The program used by default is MultiView. 
     201 
     202 
     203'''Encoding''' 
     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. 
     213 
     214 
     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. 
     221 
     222     Additional file types defined in the [[Configuration#FixMime| MIME configuration ]] are 
     223     also used automatically. 
     224 
     225     Example:  image/gif 
     226 
     227 
     228'''Description''' 
     229     Here you can enter a comment about the actual attachment. 
     230 
     231     Example:  Picture from our summer holidays (GIF format) 
     232 
     233[[=#FixOptionsSheet]] 
     234== Options sheet == 
     235 
     236The items in the '''Options''' menu correspond to the buttons on this sheet. 
     237 
     238The layout of this sheet is: 
     239{{{ 
     240                    _________________________________________________ 
     241          Copies to|_______________________________________________|^| 
     242   Hidden copies to|_______________________________________________|^| 
     243               From|_______________________________________________|^| 
     244           Reply to|_______________________________________________|^| 
     245  Additional header|_________________________________________________| 
     246}}} 
     247      `Send options`           ` Signature`            `Security` 
     248 
     249=== Header fields === 
     250 
     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 ]]. 
     255 
     256 
     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. 
     263 
     264 
     265'''From''' 
     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. 
     268 
     269 
     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. 
     275 
     276 
     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. 
     283 
     284     Example:  Keywords: Amiga, YAM\nPassword: CuriosityKilledTheCat 
     285 
     286 
     287=== Send options === 
     288 
     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. 
     293 
     294 
     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. 
     308 
     309 
     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. 
     320 
     321 
     322'''Importance''' 
     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. 
     328 
     329 
     330=== Signature === 
     331 
     332Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative 
     333signatures, or switch it off completely for this message. 
     334 
     335 
     336=== Security === 
     337 
     338Select here which security measures you want to take for this message. 
     339 
     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.\\ 
     346 
     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. 
     349 
     350[[=#FixGlossary]] 
     351== Glossary == 
     352 
     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"
