Quick Mail  
The quick mail menu is available from the main menu as well as a popup menu when you right click on a sender or a message.  
Quick Mail can be used to quickly send, reply or forward a message from within ChoiceMail without the need to open your email application.  
With quick mail - you canno send attachments though or perform extensive formatting. It is there for emergency as well as convenience. It is not mean to replace your real email application.  
Filling in the fields  
·From: The From field should display your first email address. If you have multiple email addresses, then you can click on the dropdown button and select one of your other email addresses. Your POP3 accounts, aliases, and virtual email addresses are all available. Be aware however that your ISP may prevent you from sending out emails with arbitrary email addresses.  
·To: You can enter a single address or multiple addresses separated by a comma. The background will change from red to green as the field determines that the email address is correctly formatted. Note that correctly formatted does not mean that the email address is correct - only that it is a legally valid email address. Although you cannot select addresses from your senders list (this IS a lightweight client), ChoiceMail will remember addresses that you use and they will be available the next time you want to send an email to the same person.  
·CC: This field is optional so can remain empty. It behaves the same way as the To field  
·Subject: Enter a subject line - you cannot leave this line empty  
·Copy to me automatically: if checked (the default), a copy of the email is sent to the FROM address.  
Enter your message in the body of the message. When you are done, click the Send button. Click Cancel if you do not wish to send the message.  
For the To and CC fields only, if the dropdown box is open and an entry highlighted, pressing the DEL key will delete that entry from the list.  
Automatic signatures  
ChoiceMail QuickMail can insert a signature automatically in the body of your message. ChoiceMail looks for signatures inside the subfolder called QMSig which needs to be in the same folder where ChoiceMail itself is installed. If you are creating signatures for the first time, you will need to create this folder as well.  
You can create a default signature and you can create signatures that should be associated with your individual email addresses. Signatures can be created with any text editor such as Notepad. Do not use a word processor such as Microsoft Word unless you know how to save files in text-only format.  
ChoiceMail will first try to find a signature associated with a specific email address displayed in the From dropdown box. If it cannot find it, it will then try to load the default signature. If you change the selected account from the From dropdown box, the signature will be changed automatically.  
The file naming for signatures is simple. For address-specific signatures, the filename will be the email address followed by _sig.txt. For example, if one of your email addresses is  
john@smith.com then the signature file should be called john@smith.com_sig.txt and be stored in the QMSig folder.  
If an address-specific signature can not be found, then ChoiceMail will look for a default signature file called mail_sig.txt in the QMSig folder.
