eMail client: YAM 2.7
Jens Langner wrote: The YAM-Open-Source-Team has published version 2.7 of the MUI-based eMail-programm YAM (Yet Another Mailer). This new version of the well-known eMail software provides important bug fixes as well as new features.

Changes in YAM 2.7 (all changes are listed in the changelog included in the distribution):
  • Updated translations for czech, french, german, greek, italian, swedish and spanish language
  • Updated amigaguide documentation for spanish
  • General performance improvements and general bugfixing
  • When text in a read window is selected and the user presses "reply", the reply will only contain the selected text rather than all
  • The column width of the preselection window can now be saved with MUI's own snapshot functionality
  • Closing YAM while a write window is open is possible now. However, a confirmation requester is now presented to the user
  • YAM will now recognize incompatible email file formats when importing
  • Added a direct menu item to the AmigaGuide documentation of YAM
  • Completely removed the anonymous mailing feature as there aren't any anonymous remailer services anymore that are not abused for junk mail
  • Changed YAM to have the spam folder available by default. Everyone should use a spam filter nowadays
  • The online check feature in YAM can now accept multiple interfaces by using a comma-separated list of interface names
  • Implemented an additional ARexx command to let YAM restart itself
  • The crop attachment requester can now be suppressed by a hidden config option
  • Statistics on new/unread emails will now also be shown for folder groups
  • When using the "Check for Update" menu item YAM will now directly respond instead of always keeping itself silent
  • A potential "mailto:" in front of an email address will now be automatically stripped
  • The way emails are forwarded (either inlined or as attachment) can now be chosen from the various menus in YAM
  • Implemented option to suppress the final mail filter requester
  • Implemented possibility to automatically run a script before and after YAM starts or is finished with mail filtering operations
  • Multiple files can now be selected when trying to import emails
  • The preselection window functionality can now be set for each account separately
  • Changed the remote filter to be applicable on a per-POP3 account basis
  • When moving a mail graphically from one folder to another and that folder is within a closed node, the listtree will now automatically open that node
  • Completly reworked the functionality which converts HTML mails to plain text. Now soft styles (bold/italic, etc.) are shown and the conversion should show much prettier results
  • In case a folder is renamed, mail filters will be automatically adapt to that change
  • Changed all folder list displays to show a hierarchical listtree rather than a plain list. This should make the whole folder display more intuitive
  • Reworked/fixed the recipient string in the write window to be somewhat more intuitive in showing currently found hits
  • To save memory indexes of custom folders, they will now be automatically expunged in case they haven't been accessed for a certain amount of minutes
  • Changed birthday reminder to be non-blocking and to be able to snapshot the position and size of it. Furthermore, YAM will now rememeber if the reminder was already shown and don't pop-up the same requester again at the same day if it is restarted
  • Significantly improved performance of string searches (to search for emails) by implementation of Boyer/Moore search algorithms
  • Finally YAM's internals are fully multithreaded. That means many things within YAM are now changed to work without blocking the GUI interface. This includes the TCP/IP routines which are now running in separate threads/processes rather than blocking the main GUI during a mail transfer. Furthermore this was a mandatory thing for being able to implement IMAP support in the somewhat near future
  • Lots of other improvement we don't remember right now (keep in mind: more than 2 years of development was put into YAM 2.7!)
The YAM-team wishes all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Furthermore we are looking for users who can help us translating the documentation and the programm into different languages. Of course you can to express your gratitude by providing a little donation. (snx) (Translation: dr)
