Hi!

After more than two years of constant development we are proud to tell you that YAM 2.6 has finally been released!

This is a brief list of the most important changes since 2.5:

read more

- updated translations for czech, french, german, greek,
italian and swedish language.
- updated default theme images by Martin 'Mason' Merz.
- added import and export functions for alien address books (i.e. XML files as used by SimpleMail).
- AmigaOS4.1's new notification system will can used to inform the user about new received mails.
- improved handling of header lines in general and especially malformed header lines by certain Microsoft software.
- improved download and export speed of mails by optimizing the amount of data shown on the screen. Overall the speed increased about 200%.
- improved the spam handling by treating the user's address book as a white list.
- rewritten RFC2047 and RFC2822 routines to match the current RFC recommendations.
- individual character sets can now be configured for reading and writing mails instead of having one character set for all actions.
- improved ARexx command handling and extended command set.
- all error messages which occured during a mail transfer now include the account name to make it easier to spot the faulty account in case a user has more than one account at the same provider.
- mail attachments are displayed as a scrollable virtual group to be able to show an unlimited number of files.
- all balance object use the new NBalance.mcc class which supports custom mouse pointers.
- foreign characters with a mail may be converted to either "?" or similar look alike characters.
- reduced overall stack usage by using dynamically allocated memory when needed.
- the text font and style can be configured independently for reading and writing mails .
- the spam training data can be optimized to keep the data base small by removing very rarely used word.
- made the date scanning of birthdays locale aware.
- added various AROS versions (i386, ppc, x86_64).
- added NOSPLASHWINDOW tooltype to start/quit YAM silently.
- on AmigaOS4.1 the new URL: device will be preferred over openurl.library to invoke a browser.
- lots of other improvement we don't remember right now (keep in mind: more than 2 years of development was put into YAM 2.6!)

Have lots of fun with this new release!

Is in-line HTML supported when reading emails?

Inline HTML is supported so far that the HTML text part is converted to plain text. Inline images are not supported.

Thanks for the update - but download doesn't work here (tried OWB, AWeb and IBrowse). Always "Connection reset by peer." error.

 Re: YAM 2.6 released!
Here's a bug (in OS4 version at least):

YAM ignores the "get mail on startup" option when enabled, although in .config file GetOnStartup=Y is set. Maybe a quick fix for this? I suppose many people use this enabled.

YAM bugtracker seems to be down atm (or my connection plays its games again) so I can't report it properly.

Oh that kind of sucks. As much as I hate HTML email its a fact of life.

@HammerD

I use the HTML datatype (+http-handler) and have HTML files (text/html) within YAM associated with MultiView. One double-click on the attachment - or via the display part button - and the HTML mail is displayed in MultiView. For the low amount of useful HTML mail I get where the html->text conversion isn't adequate, it works perfectly and is quicker than launching a web browser to view it.

 Re: YAM 2.6 released!
The biggest problem is that neither Jens nor me can reproduce this issue, not on OS4 and not on OS3. For us YAM happlily downloads the mails as soon as it is started.

 Re: YAM 2.6 released!
Well, it seems I found a possible weakness of YAM concerning the "download on startup" issue.

Everybody with this problem, please open YAM's user configuration, acknowledge the (most probably only) user's real name by pressing RETURN, close the window and quit YAM. On the next startup YAM should happily download mails automatically again.

@Vulture

Strange, so far exactly this always was the problem and saving the user list with valid names again cured the issue for all affected people.

@Vulture

Please create a NET debug log with YAM's debug version.

Details on how to create the log can be found in the YAM FAQ.

Please send the resulting debug log to both Jens and me privately.
