v1 v2 348 348 Layout options 349 349 350 === Message header layout=== 351 ` Header` 350 === === 351 `` 352 352 If 'full' is selected, all the headers will be displayed. Select 'none' if you don't want to see any header. When you switch to 'selected', you can specify yourself which header fields should be visible in the Read window. For specifying the fields you can use any AmigaDOS pattern. The FROM, TO, DATE and SUBJECT fields are displayed by default. The header layout can also be changed (temporarily) in the Read window itself. 353 353 354 354 Example: '(From|Subject|Date|X-Mailer)' 355 355 356 ` Sender info` 356 `` 357 357 If a mail's sender is found in YAM's address book, YAM can display additional information in the header part of the Read window. If 'data only' is selected, YAM will show some information such as the name, date of birth, snail mail address, description, etc. as found in the address book for this entry. Select 'data and image' to make YAM display a picture of the sender (of course there's got to be one in the address book ;)) in addition to the other data. 358 358 359 ` Wrap headers` 359 `` 360 360 Choose whether to show long headers on one line or to break them on two or more. In the first case, you will need to use the horizontal scrollbar in order to see all the information. 361 361 362 === M essage body layout=== 363 `S eparate sig.` 362 === M === 363 `S` 364 364 It has become a custom to separate the signature from the text of an e-mail using two dashes and a space. If you don't like this kind of separation, you can define another here. Apart from the setting 'two dashes' you can select between 'separator bar', 'blank line' or even 'no signature' to have no signature at all. 365 365 366 ` Colored text` 366 `` 367 367 Text passages embedded in # characters will be highlighted by YAM in a special color both in the internal editor and in the Read window. Here you can define the color used for that purpose. 368 368 369 ` Old quotes` 369 `s` 370 370 Select here the color used for the several levels of quoting. 371 371 372 ` Use fixed font` 372 `` 373 373 It often makes more sense to use a non-proportional font to read messages, since the layout of any tables will be distorted when using proportional fonts. Don't forget to specify the font of your choice in the 'TextEditor' module of YAM's MUI settings, under 'Fonts/fixed'. 374 374 … … 379 379 YAM uses the characters '_', '/', '*' and '#' to indicate underlined, italic, bold and colored text. For certain special documents, as it is the case with source code, this can make things difficult because some characters are suppressed. So you have the option of switching the rendering of text styles on or off. 380 380 381 === Otheroptions === 382 ` Multiple windows` 381 === options === 382 `s` 383 383 With this option selected, each message which you choose to read will open its own Read window. 384 384 385 385 [[=#FixWrite]] 386 == Write == 386 == e == 387 387 Headers, stock phrases and editor settings 388 388 … … 405 405 Example: 'Content-Language: uk\nKeywords: Pattern, YAM, Internet' 406 406 407 === Message Body=== 408 ` Welcome phrase` 407 === === 408 `e` 409 409 YAM will insert this text at the beginning of every new message you write (except for answers and forwarded messages). You can define a line break by inserting '\n'. 410 410 411 411 Example: 'Hello,\n' 412 412 413 ` Closing phrase` 413 `` 414 414 This text will be inserted at the end of every new message you write, just before the signature separator. You can insert a line break with '\n'. 415 415 416 416 Example: 'Kind regards\n\nJohn Doe' 417 417 418 ` Warn when there's an empty subject line` 418 `e` 419 419 Activate this option to let YAM warn you any time you try to send an email with an empty subject line. This may be the case when sending email to mailing list managers and other automated services, but it is generally considered as bad taste to use an empty subject line when posting to a mailing list. If you seldom use empty subject lines or you use to forget to fill in this field, you might want to use this option. 420 420 421 === Edit or === 422 ` Word wrap` 421 === Editr === 422 `` 423 423 When you save a newly written message, it will be formatted to make sure that no line has more characters than the value specified here. You can also decide whether YAM will insert line breaks as you type or if this should be postponed until you send the message. In the first case, the internal editor will insert line break codes while you're typing the message. This way you avoid unwanted surprises when the text is formatted later on saving the message, but on the other hand, any subsequent insertion or deletion of text might be a little less comfortable. 424 424 … … 439 439 440 440 [[=#FixReplyForward]] 441 == R eply/Forward== 441 == R == 442 442 Options for quoting messages 443 443 444 === Forwarding=== 445 ` Initial phrase` 444 === === 445 `` 446 446 This text will be added at the beginning of the original text of any message you forward. Click the pop-up button to select from a list of variables which can be inserted (for example %r stands for the name of the recipient, %s stands for the subject, etc.). When the text is inserted into the message, YAM replaces the variables with their respective values, taken from the forwarded message. 447 447 448 448 Example: '*** Forwarded message, originally by %n on %d: ***\n' 449 449 450 `Termin ating phrase` 450 `Termin` 451 451 This text will be inserted at the end of any forwarded message, but before the greetings phrase. Click the pop-up button to select a variable from the list (for subject, date, sender, etc.). 452 452 453 453 Example: '*** End of forwarded message ***\n' 454 454 455 === R eplying=== 456 ` Default reply phrase` 455 === R === 456 `` 457 457 When you reply to a message, YAM can automatically insert three different phrases in the new message: greetings (Open), an introduction to the quoted message (Intro) and a closing phrase (Close). Use the cycle gadget to select one of these phrases and enter it in the field on the right. Click the pop-up button to select a variable from the list (for subject, date, sender, etc.). 458 458 … … 462 462 463 463 464 ` Alternative reply phrase` 464 `` 465 465 Communicating via Internet often means writing in another language. For that reason, YAM is capable of using an alternative reply phrase set, which will be used automatically whenever the recipient's address matches an user defined pattern. This way you can, for instance, use a German version of the reply phrase set for addresses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, while using the English version for all other countries. 466 466 … … 469 469 [Close] 'Mit freundlichem Gruss' 470 470 471 ` Use with these domains` 471 `s` 472 472 Whenever the recipient's address corresponds with this AmigaDOS pattern , the alternative reply phrases will be used. 473 473 474 474 Example: '#?.(de|ch|at)' (Addresses of countries with German mother tongue) 475 475 [=#FixReply] 476 ` Mailing list reply phrase` 476 `` 477 477 To answer a message belonging to a mailing list, another set of phrases is available -- they will be used if the message that is being answered is stored in a folder for which mailing list support has been activated (see folder configuration ). 478 478 … … 491 491 Example: '|' 492 492 493 ` Quote empty lines` 493 `es` 494 494 Usually, the quotation character is inserted at the beginning of empty lines contained in the quoted message. If for some reason you don't like this, just deactivate this option. 495 495 496 `V erify recipient address` 496 `Vs` 497 497 If this option is enabled, YAM will check if the sender and the return address are the same -- if the "From:" and the "Reply-To:" headers of the message are different, you will be asked to select whom to reply to. This way it is fairly easy to reply privately to a message from a mailing list. 498 498 499 ` Stripsignature` 499 ` signature` 500 500 Activate this option to avoid quoting the signature (since you'll delete the signature anyway in most cases). This option will work only when the signature in the quoted message is separated from the actual message by the standard '-- ' separator, that is, two dashes AND a space. 501 501 … … 504 504 You can define and use one standard and upto two alternative signatures within YAM (e.g. one signature for private email and another one for business). Clicking on the cycle button in the upper left corner of the window you can display and edit the signatures in the small text editor window below. 505 505 506 ` Use signature` 506 `e` 507 507 If this option is activated, a signature will be inserted at the end of each message you write. 508 508 509 509 510 ` Edit in external editor` 510 `` 511 511 Click this button to open the external editor you have defined in Configuration/Write/External editor to edit the signature currently selected. 512 512 513 `Ins ert random tagline` 513 `Inse` 514 514 Click this button to insert the '%t' variable at the actual cursor position in the editor. When processing a new message, YAM will replace this variable with a random tagline from the taglines file. 515 515 516 `Ins ertENV:Signature` 516 `Ins ENV:Signature` 517 517 Click this button to insert the variable '%e' at the current cursor position in the editor. YAM will replace this variable with the contents of the 'SIGNATURE' environment variable while creating a new message. This way it is possible to have random values automatically inserted into the signature, like the date, the actual temperature, the time, your weight or whatever... 518 518 519 ` Tagline file` 519 `e` 520 520 The tagline database contains taglines, little poems or other very important and witty pieces of wisdom which can be selected randomly and be inserted into the signature. There are collections of thousands of these taglines on Aminet. 521 521 522 522 Example: 'PROGDIR:.taglines' 523 523 524 ` Tagline separator` 524 `` 525 525 Since a tagline can consist of several actual lines, the single entries in the tagline file have to be separated from each other. Insert the string that is used for separating one tagline from another in your tagline file into this text field. 526 526 … … 559 559 560 560 [[=#FixSecurity]] 561 == S ecurity== 561 == S == 562 562 Encrypting mails with PGP 563 563 564 564 === PGP === 565 ` PGP's directory` 565 `` 566 566 The famous (some people and authorities might even say notorious) programme PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) by Philip Zimmermann is used for encrypting, decrypting and digitally 'signing' messages. Please install PGP as described in PGP's manual and insert the full directory path of the PGP executable here. YAM recognizes automatically if you're using version 2.6 or 5.x. 567 567 … … 591 591 592 592 [[=#FixStartQuit]] 593 == Start/Quit == 593 == t == 594 594 Options for actions at start up and termination 595 595 596 === On program startup=== 597 ` Load all folders` 596 === === 597 `ers` 598 598 If you have many voluminous archive folders, you can increase YAM's starting speed by deactivating this option. Furthermore, deactivating this option will save memory, because only the index files of the system folders will be loaded on startup -- the index files of the user-defined folders will be loaded only when they are needed. 599 599 600 `Mar k new mail as unread` 600 `Mar` 601 601 Switch this option on to mark all new messages as "unread" on startup. 602 603 604 605 606 607 608 609 610 611 612 613 614 615 616 617 618 619 620 602 621 603 622 `Delete old mail` 604 623 In the case that you have defined a maximum age for specific folders, YAM will delete all messages exceeding this age before actually quitting if this option is activated. 605 624 606 `Remove deleted mail` 607 Switch this on to make YAM empty the 'Deleted' folder on startup. 608 609 `Check birthdates` 610 Switch this option on to make YAM search the address book on startup for people whose birthday is today. This way you can send your congratulations at once, in case it's the birthday of one of your pals (or maybe even business partners). When run from a shell, the NOCHECK switch prevents this check from being done. 611 612 `Send mail in outgoing queue` 613 If this option is activated, YAM will search the Outgoing folder for messages to send on startup and ask you if you'd like to send them. Please note that this will work only if a TCP/IP stack has been loaded previously. You can temporarily stop YAM from doing so by starting YAM from a shell with the NOCHECK switch. 614 615 `Download new mail` 616 If this option is activated (and there's already a TCP/IP stack running on your system), YAM will check the mail server for new messages on startup. You can temporarily stop YAM from doing so by starting YAM from a shell with the NOCHECK switch. 617 618 === On program termination === 619 `Send mail in outgoing queue` 620 Activate this option to make YAM look for ready to send messages in the Outgoing folder before actually ending the program. If it's activated, YAM will ask you if you'd like to send those messages before quitting. (Of course it will do so only if there are actually any messages in the Outgoing folder.) 621 622 `Delete old mail` 623 In the case that you have defined a maximum age for specific folders, YAM will delete all messages exceeding this age before actually quitting if this option is activated. 624 625 `Remove deleted mail` 625 `Effacer les anciens messages` 626 626 Switch this on to make YAM empty the 'Deleted' folder when closing down. 627 627 … … 630 630 Configure MIME viewers for attachments. 631 631 632 === MIME viewers=== 632 === === 633 633 The program selected by default to display attachments is MultiView. Messages in MIME format contain a field called Content-Type in which the type of the encoded file is specified. You can define a different program to process every single type of file. This is important for users who do not want to use MultiView for processing images and sound files, or for processing file types not yet supported by datatypes. Click New to configure a display program, or use Delete to delete an entry. 634 634 635 635 In addition, new file types defined here are also taken into account when composing a new message. For instance, if a new attachment type "application/pgs" is defined for filenames ending in ".pgs", YAM will automatically use this MIME type when attaching files that bear this extension. 636 636 637 ` Attachment type` 637 `` 638 638 This is the type of the actual entry, and corresponds to the Content-Type field contained in the message. You can select one from the pop-up list or use AmigaDOS wildcards, e.g. 'image/#?' to use the programme for a whole class of file types. 639 639 640 640 Example: 'image/jpeg' 641 641 642 `Extension ` 642 `Extension` 643 643 Filename extension for the file type. This extension allows YAM to assign the correct "Content-Type:" field for a file. 644 644 645 645 Example: 'jpg jpeg jfif' 646 646 647 ` Viewer` 647 `` 648 648 Choose the program you'd like to use to display the attachment. Do not forget to insert a "%s" into the command line, which will be replaced by the filename when processing. 649 649 650 650 Example: 'TOOLS:Gfx/ViewJPG "%s"' 651 651 652 ` Default viewer` 652 `` 653 653 This viewer will be used if the attachment doesn't match any of the user defined types (see above). 654 654 … … 672 672 673 673 [[=#FixAddressbook]] 674 == Address book== 674 == == 675 675 Visible columns, personal data exchange 676 676 677 === Col ums === 677 === Cols === 678 678 Select the items you want to see in the address book. 679 679 680 === Personal data exchange=== 680 === === 681 681 `Add personal info` 682 682 Check this option to create special message headers containing personal data like your postal address, phone number, homepage, date of birth or URL of your picture. If the recipient works with YAM too, (s)he will able to create an address book entry and fill it with your data. To get this working, add an entry to your address book containing your data (YAM will find your entry based on the e-mail address). 683 683 684 `Sa ve sender's address` 684 `Sa` 685 685 YAM can automatically save the sender's address when you're reading a message, i.e. it will create a new entry in the address book. Choose one of these modes: 686 686 687 // never// Don't save addresses 688 // if info available; ask// You'll only be asked if there's personal data of the sender available, otherwise the address won't be saved 689 // ask before// You'll be asked every time whether the address should be saved or not 690 // if info available// The address will be saved automatically if there's personal data of the sender available 691 // always// All new addresses will be saved automatically 692 693 `Group for new entries` 687 //// Don't save addresses 688 //// You'll only be asked if there's personal data of the sender available, otherwise the address won't be saved 689 //// You'll be asked every time whether the address should be saved or not 690 //ble// The address will be saved automatically if there's personal data of the sender available 691 //s// All new addresses will be saved automatically 692 693 `Groupes` 694 694 Alias of the group that will contain the new address book entries created by the previous option. The group will be created if it doesn't exist yet. 695 695 696 696 Example: NEW 697 697 698 ` Save photos in` 698 `` 699 699 The pictures of the senders are stored here. 700 700 … … 706 706 Example: 'http://yam.ch/gallery/BECK_Marcel.gif' 707 707 708 ` HTTP Proxy server` 708 `` 709 709 If you're behind a firewall and only get into the Internet using a proxy server, then you have to enter here the address of that proxy server, otherwise it won't be possible to download photos or get information about new versions of YAM. 710 710 … … 715 715 As well as the "Scripts" menu in the main window, which can hold up to ten scripts, ARexx scripts can also be started by certain events. For example, it is possible with two simple scripts to start up Miami in order to go online and fetch new mail, and then close Miami again once the mail has been downloaded. 716 716 717 `N ame` 717 `N` 718 718 The title of the script as it appears in the "Scripts" menu, e.g. "Start Browser". 719 719 … … 723 723 Example: PROGDIR:rexx/StartBrowser.rexx 724 724 725 `O pen Console window` 725 `O` 726 726 The script will open a console window for input and output while it is running. Switch this option off if a console window is not required. 727 727 728 ` Wait for termination` 728 `` 729 729 Switch this option off if you want the script to run in the background, which means you don't want to wait for it to finish before YAM can go ahead with other tasks. 730 730 731 731 [[=#FixMisc]] 732 == Miscellaneous == 732 == s == 733 733 Paths, AppIcon, save/delete, tracking & packing 734 734 735 === Paths === 736 ` Directory for temp files` 735 === s === 736 `es` 737 737 YAM needs this directory to save some files needed while processing e.g. messages with MIME attachments. If you are short on memory (2 MB or less), you better choose a path on your hard disk to avoid possible problems with very large messages. 738 738 739 739 Example: 'T:' 740 740 741 === Mailbox status AppIcon=== 741 === === 742 742 743 743 `Position X/Y` … … 746 746 Example: 'X:550 Y:144' 747 747 748 ` Label` 748 `` 749 749 The label for the AppIcon which will be displayed while YAM is running can be specified here. Click the pop-up button to select a variable for new, unread, etc. messages. 750 750 751 ` Close gadget iconifies program` 751 `` 752 752 Following the MUI default behavior, the close gadget (or the <Esc> key) will terminate the program. Activate this option to let them iconify YAM instead. 753 753 754 === Save/deletemessages === 755 756 `Confirm deletion of [xx] or more messages` 754 === messages === 755 756 `Confirms` 757 757 If this option is activated, a security requester will appear before deleting a certain number of messages. This makes sense especially when a number of two or more is selected. 758 758 759 ` Remove messages immediately` 759 `` 760 760 If this option is switched on, messages won't be moved to the 'Deleted' folder on deletion -- instead, they will be erased immediately from the hard disk. This saves some time and memory, but on the other hand you won't be able to retrieve any message deleted by mistake. 761 761 … … 782 782 The condition report will be sent immediately if there's a TCP/IP stack running, otherwise it will be saved to the 'Outgoing' folder. 783 783 784 === XPK/LhA settings=== 785 786 ` Packer` 784 === === 785 786 `` 787 787 By clicking the pop-up button, you can choose the XPK library you wish to use to compress folders. Before doing so, an XPK package must be installed on your computer system. This package is not contained in the YAM archive, but can be downloaded from the Aminet. You can select the packer's efficiency by using the slider bar on the right-hand side of the pop-up button -- the higher the value, the better compression, but also slower. 788 788 789 789 Example: 'NUKE 100%' 790 790 791 ` Pack/protect` 791 `` 792 792 Click the pop-up button to select the XPK library you wish to use for compression and password protection of folders. You can only select XPK libraries offering password protection. Specify the packer's efficiency with the slider bar on the right-hand side of the pop-up button. 793 793 794 794 Example: 'HUFF 50%' 795 795 796 `Archive r` 796 `Archiver` 797 797 YAM is capable of crunching one or more files before attaching them to an e-mail, using a suitable archiver such as LHA, LZX or ZIP. Enter here the full command path line for your favourite archiver, including any options. You can insert variables for the resulting archive and the source files (or a list containing the source files) by clicking the pop-up button on the right hand side of the text field. 798 798 … … 800 800 801 801 [[=#FixLook] 802 == Look & Feel== 802 == == 803 803 Here YAM will display a list with available themes and a small preview of what it will look like. 804 804 805 `Activ ate` 805 `Activ` 806 806 Activates the selected theme, which requires you to save the configuration and restart YAM, in order to see the new icons. 807 807 808 ` Status bar` 808 `` 809 809 Will show a status bar at either - top, middle, bottom or don't show any at all. 810 810 811 ` Label` 811 `` 812 812 Here you can select what the status bar should show. There are a number of different options to select from. 813 813 814 ` Size format` 814 `` 815 815 Here you can select how YAM will display sizes for mails and mail drawers. 816 816 817 ` Embedded read pane in main window` 817 `` 818 818 Shows an embedded read pane in the main window, which allows you to read mails directly in the main window instead of double-clicking a mail to open it in a separate read window. 819 819 … … 821 821 Shows a quick search field in the main window, for quick searches :) 822 822 823 == Updates== 823 == == 824 824 Update settings 825 825 826 ` Check for updates` 826 `` 827 827 Allows you to select the interval at which YAM will check for updates to itself and other third party software, which YAM needs. A button next to it, allows you to do manual checks for updates at will. 828 828 829 829 Below you can also see when exactly the last check was done. 830 830 831 = Hidden Configuration= 831 = = 832 832 833 833 YAM recognises some extra parameters that are not mentioned in any configuration window. You have to load the file .config into a text editor and alter the parameters in the Advanced section by hand.
