Becky! Internet Mail Help File
This is a joint effort between Tomohiro Norimatsu (Becky!'s author) and me for the popular Becky! Internet Mail client.. I revised, restructured and updated the help file documentation, including addition of many new links, index entries and a new structure. This effort began in summer, 2010. This help file is approximately 105% bigger than the original help file, with over 33,000 words. The focus of this help file is to provide expanded information for new and casual users so they can learn the many features of Becky!. With the included plugin, the help file works from within Becky!.
The examples on the right demonstrate the basic look of the current help file and the new david's Becky! Help.
The search example demonstrates that there are generally more topics for a search word with the new version and also that the results are easier to read. The index is also extensively expanded, as is the content.
There are two formats: the help file (EXE) and a report file (PDF). The EXE file (a compiled version of a CHM file) is superior and preferred, as it includes an extensive index, a fast search facility, is always available from within Becky! and can coexist with the distributed help file. The PDF format is provided primarily as a supplement, intended for those who prefer a separate reference document.
Becky! is an international product and supported by many volunteers around the world, whether in development of plug-ins, translating to other languages or administering forums. Some key links are here and they lead to others.
Help File Current version is for Becky! 2.65.05, version 1, November 20, 2013. Installation instructions and new features are included in the zipped file.
PDF File The PDF is intended as a supplement only.
Becky Help File on Web This version of the help file has been discontinued due to lack of use.
