15

    
16
<H2><A NAME="ss3.1">3.1 Q01  How do I make Sylpheed display my language?</A>
17
</H2>
18

    
19
<P>A.   You have to set some environment variables such as
20
<CODE>LANG,LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES</CODE> to your local language.
21
Usually <CODE>LANG</CODE> (or <CODE>LC_ALL</CODE>) is sufficient.
22
<H2><A NAME="ss3.2">3.2 Q02  I don't like the default font. Can I change that?</A>
23
</H2>
24

    
25
<P>A.   Yes. In Configuration&gt;common preferences under the
26
"Display" tab.
27
<H2><A NAME="ss3.3">3.3 Q03  There are too many columns in the message list!!</A>
28
</H2>
29

    
30
<P>A.   In Configuration&gt;common preferences under the
31
"Display" tab you can press the button "Set display
32
item of summary". That pops up a screen with all the
33
options you can show or leave out of the message
34
list.
35
<H2><A NAME="ss3.4">3.4 Q04  Can I use a different editor to write my mails?</A>
36
</H2>
37

    
38
<P>A.   You can. In Configuration&gt;common preferences under
39
the "Other" tab you can define your editor of choice.
40
Remember, if you want to use a command line editor
41
like vi or emacs, to write the name of the shell
42
(term, term, rxvt) with the -e parameter in front of
43
the editor. E.g.: <CODE>rxvt -e vi %s</CODE>
44
<H2><A NAME="ss3.5">3.5 Q05  How to change the font size in the Sylpheed interface?</A>
45
</H2>
46

    
47
<P>A.   You can set the GTK+ font by <CODE>~/.gtkrc</CODE>, or
48
<CODE>~/.gtkrc.mine</CODE>,
49
(which is included by <CODE>~/.gtkrc</CODE>).
50
For example:
51
<CODE>style "default"
52
{
53
font =
54
"-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
55
"
56
}
57
widget_class "*"        style "default"</CODE>
58
<H2><A NAME="ss3.6">3.6 Q06  Sylpheed saves my outgoing mail (in Outbox). Can I make it stop doing that?</A>
59
</H2>
60

    
61
<P>A.   In Configuration&gt;common preferences there's a
62
checkbox "Save sent message to outbox". Uncheck it,
63
and it's solved.
64
<H2><A NAME="ss3.7">3.7 Q07  How can I change the key-bindings (hot-keys) in Sylpheed?</A>
65
</H2>
66

    
67
<P>A.   That is very simple. Suppose you want to assign a
68
shortcut key to a function, e.g. sending all mail
69
out should start when you press Ctrl-Y. Click the
70
Message' menu and move the mouse over "Send all
71
messages". Now you press Ctrl-Y. Immediately the menu
72
text is updated and the function is in place. Please
73
note that a previous function that Ctrl-Y was
74
assigned to, will no longer have a shortcut key. If
75
you want to remove the key binding, do the same
76
thing, but press the "delete" key on the menu-item.
77
Then the key binding is removed.
78
<H2><A NAME="ss3.8">3.8 Q08  Can I close windows without the mouse?</A>
79
</H2>
80

    
81
<P>A.   Of course!! Not all windows, but by pressing ESCape,
82
you can close the addressbook, the window of viewing
83
a mail-source (message&gt;view source), the window of
84
viewing the headers, and several others. Just give
85
it a try and you will find all of them.
86
<H2><A NAME="ss3.9">3.9 Q09  Can I change the way the date is displayed in the message summary?</A>
87
</H2>
88

    
89
<P>A.   As of 0.4.65 you can. The options are:
90
%y = year in numbers     %m = month in number
91
%d = day in numbers      %c = date/time for locale
92
%A = full weekday name   %a = short month name
93
%B = full month name     %b = short month name
94
%H = hours in 24-clock   %I = hours in 12-clock
95
For more information go to the configuration menu,
96
select Common preferences / Display and move the
97
mouse cursor over the input box for the date display
98
format.
99
<H2><A NAME="ss3.10">3.10 Q10  Why can't I see the compface pictures?</A>
100
</H2>
101

    
102
<P>A.   You need to enable displaying of the header pane in the
103
general preferences
104
<H2><A NAME="ss3.11">3.11 Q11  I still can't see the pictures. Why not?</A>
105
</H2>
106

    
107
<P>A.   You may not have compiled in Compface support. See Q11
108
in the Installation/Configuration section.
109
<H2><A NAME="ss3.12">3.12 Q12  Why does the URL Launcher not launch my webbrowser?</A>
110
</H2>
111

    
112
<P>A.   You need to double-click the url.
113
<H2><A NAME="ss3.13">3.13 Q13 Attachments with spaces in the name won't open!</A>
114
</H2>
115

    
116
<P>A.   When you try to launch a helper application, like an image viewer, with an attachment that has spaces in the name, put quotes around the %s
117
parameter. Example: gedit '%s'
