Answer

If you create a HTML form that makes use of the following variables, you can design your web page to look however you desire.
Using the WebMailLogonURL variable, you can substitute the GMS WebMal logon page with your web page. Upon successfully authenticating to the server via your web page, the next
screen the user will see is the familiar GMS WebMain interface.

http://localhost:8000/logon.mml?signonproduct=GLWebMail&changeproduct=glweb
mail&ntmail_username=<username>&ntmail_password=<password>

<username> = the name of the user who is trying to log on.
<password> = the user’s password.

For example, to sign on as postmaster@test.com, password of mypass, the following will do the trick:
http://localhost:8000/logon.mml?signonproduct=GLWebMail&changeproduct=glweb
mail&ntmail_username=postmaster@test.com&ntmail_password=mypass

Note: Builds 3078 and later use a modified form of the URL mentioned above which includes an additional flag. This flag is necessary only where MS Java Virtual Machine is being used on the server hosting the mail server.

http://localhost:8000/logon.mml?username=<username>&password=<password>&ismsvm=<0 or 1>

<username> = the name of the user who is trying to log on
<password> = the user’s password
ismsvm=<0 or 1> = indicates whether or not you are running MS Java virtual machine on the client machine. 1 (one) indicates that you are running MS Java virtual machine and 0 (zero) indicates that you are not running MS Java virtual machine.

For example, to sign on as postmaster@test.com, password mypass, running MS Java virtual machine on the mail server, the following will do the trick:
http://localhost:8000/logon.mml?username=postmaster@test.com&password=mypass&ismsvm=1

Java Virtual Machine is a product that was once shipped with MS Windows and other products. This Java interpretation engine was somewhat different from the Sun implimentation and therefore we require in later builds, the information relating to whichever Java interpreter is being used.

In order to create this URL you will need to use HTML forms in the usual way. The development of HTML forms is not supported by Gordano Ltd.
