+ <question>
+ <para>
+Q07 How can I change the key-bindings (hot-keys) in Sylpheed?
+</para>
+ </question>
+ <answer>
+ <para>That is very simple. Suppose you want to assign a
+ shortcut key to a function, e.g. sending all mail
+ out should start when you press Ctrl-Y. Click the
+ Message&apos; menu and move the mouse over &quot;Send all
+ messages&quot;. Now you press Ctrl-Y. Immediately the menu
+ text is updated and the function is in place. Please
+ note that a previous function that Ctrl-Y was
+ assigned to, will no longer have a shortcut key. If
+ you want to remove the key binding, do the same
+ thing, but press the &quot;delete&quot; key on the menu-item.
+ Then the key binding is removed.
