    5 This window will appear when you choose to write a new message or
    6 answer or forward an already existing message.  You can open TWO Write
    7 windows at a time.  The Write window consists of three sheets, laid out
    8 as shown below.  The menu bar is the same for each sheet.

    30   `Send now`     `Send later`        `Hold`         `Cancel`
    32 These 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.
    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.
    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).
    61 [[=#FixMessageSheet]]
    62 == Message sheet ==
    64 Above the large [[#FixEdit| text editor ]] area there are two header fields and a toolbar.
    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.
    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,
    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.

    131 [[=#FixEdit]]
    132 === Internal editor ===
    134 YAM uses the efficient MUI class TextEditor.mcc for message
    135 handling.  Many aspects of the editor, such as keybindings,
    136 spellchecking or fonts can be changed in the '''TextEditor''' sheet of the
    137 [[Menus#FixSettingsMui| MUI configuration ]].  Although you can modify the keybindings, here
    138 is 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\\

    164 [[=#FixAttachmentSheet]]
    165 == Attachment sheet ==
    167 You can add one or more files to your message.  This way you can send
    168 binary files such as archives, pictures, etc. via e-mail.  You can choose
    169 the method of encoding (MIME or UUencoded) and write a comment for each
    170 file.  Files can be archived automatically to reduce the size of the
    171 resulting message.
    173 The attachment list contains five columns: filename, size (in bytes),
    174 contents, 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 ]].
    194 '''Delete'''
    195      Removes the selected entries from the list.
    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.
    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.
    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
    228 '''Description'''
    229      Here you can enter a comment about the actual attachment.
    231      Example:  Picture from our summer holidays (GIF format)
    233 [[=#FixOptionsSheet]]
    234 == Options sheet ==
    236 The items in the '''Options''' menu correspond to the buttons on this sheet.
    238 The 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`
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    330 === Signature ===
    332 Here you can replace the standard signature by one of the alternative
    333 signatures, or switch it off completely for this message.
    336 === Security ===
    338 Select 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.\\
    347 Further information about PGP and security issues can be found in the
    348 [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| PGP ]] and [[Configuration#FixSecurity| Configuration/Security ]] chapters.
    350 [[=#FixGlossary]]
    351 == Glossary ==
    353 YAM's Glossary acts as a place to collect blocks of text which you
    354 may use fairly frequently, such as templates for letters, greeting
    355 phrases or frequently asked questions.  The text can be as long as
    356 desired, extending over several lines.  Using the '''Edit/Glossary''' menu
    357 item 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"
    359 for "Yours sincerely") which you can see in the left-hand part of the
    360 window.  Click on the name and you can edit the entry in the right-hand
    361 side of the window.  A double click on the name pastes the text block at
    362 the current cursor position and then closes the window.
    365 === Function of the buttons ===
    367 '''New'''
    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.
    377 '''Delete'''
    378      Deletes the selected entry from the glossary.
    381 '''Paste'''
    382      Pastes the highlighted entry into the text editor, at the current
    383      cursor position.
