Do you want to completely switch off signature tests or just to be
informed in a less "in-your-face" fashion? Possibly having only a
"unknown-signature" icon would be sufficient, what do you think?
Please forgive me if my posting appeared hostile; it's just that I am
weary of seeing the "signature cannot be verified" warning box and
having to move the mouse to click the button to close the box.
Actually, I can close the box by pressing the ENTER key, but to do
that, I must take my hand off the mouse.
I understand that the signature test generally is beneficial, but the
fact is that most of the messages I receive from sources other than the
Balsa list have no signature.
I would suggest that a it should be a high priority that Balsa be
ergonomically-friendly. A significant ergonomic improvement would be
to ensure that all routine functions involved in reading mail---namely,
culling and sorting---may be accomplished from the keyboard without the
mouse. Alternatively, but less-desirable, is that all these functions
be accomplished with the mouse, apart from the keyboard. The thing to
avoid at all costs is the necessity of switching back and forth from
keyboard to mouse.
In particular, and because of the large number of spam messages, it
would be VERY nice to be able to "trash" a message by pressing the DEL
key. If this is done, then I can "clean out" my IN box with only two
fingers---one on the DOWN arrow, and the other on the DEL key. But
this works only if I am not required to stop and close a warning box
each time a signature cannot be verified.
