General Tips
Many functions in eMule are accessible by the context menu. This is a menu that opens on a right mouse button click on many different objects. Also many areas and objects react on double clicks or even middle mouse button clicks. A quick menu opens by pressing ALT + x. Just try out the different combinations. It is useful.

How can I add a friend?
Friends are managed in the Messages main window. To add a friend, right click in the Friends list and choose -> Add Friend. You need to have following information:
• IP Address – mandatory. You got to have it. Just ask your future friend.
• Port – mostly 4662; also mandatory
• Name – Choose any name. Not needed.
Another way to add friends is by directly right-clicking on any source in the Transfer main window and choosing -> Add to Friends. eMule will then fill in all required information.

How to allocate a friend's upload slot
A right click on any friend lets you give him a friend upload slot. This upload slot will get active as soon as the next one is free allowing your friend to download. Friend-slots do not increase the upload to them it just grants a normal upload slot.

How can I clear the search auto-completion history?
Click into the search field then press CTRL or ALT then DEL.
Top
What is the meaning of the icons in front of sources etc?
Find a detailed description in the Icons chapter.

May I kick or ban other users?
No. This function will never be implemented in eMule as it contradicts its philosophy.

Why do I get only 201 results in a search
Searching causes a heavy load on the servers. To limit the impact of many searching clients eMule returns a maximum of 201 results on a search. If you want more, use the web based search Filedonkey
Top
Should I set all my files to high priority or release?
No. Priorities are used to favour certain files over the other. The priorities are relative to each other, i.e. all files to low priority is the same as all files to high or all files to normal.
Priority for downloads influences how eMule treats the file when searching for sources or when processing connections. Upload priority determines which files eMule favours when someone requests this file. Other clients who request high priority uploads will advance faster in your queue.
