Question

Is it possible to customize the GMS Mail administration interface (GUI)?

Answer

You can carry out basic customization to color and font size from the Profiles>[Administrator Profile|System Base Profile]>GUI Preferences pages. Further customization can be achieved by inserting your own HTML files.

Background on Page Structure
Each of the GMS Mail configuration pages can be branded by the simple addition of html files to the MML directory. These html files will be embedded inside the normal GUI pages and displayed as part of them.

Replacing Pages
To replace the pages, just create the relevant file in the $BaseDir$/MML directory. The Web Configuration server picks up the new information immediately and displays it.

It is important that these pages do not have any HTML errors, for example uncompleted tables, since this may make GMS Mail unconfigurable. The files have these names:

File Function
$BaseDir$/MML/Head.htm HTML code to be displayed at the top of each page.
$BaseDir$/MML/Domain/Head.htm
HTML code to be displayed at the top of each page but only for users of “Domain”.
$BaseDir$/MML/Foot.htm
HTML code to be displayed at the bottom of each page.
$BaseDir$/MML/Domain/Foot.htm
HTML code to be displayed at the bottom of each page but only for users of “Domain”.
$BaseDir$/MML/First.htm
HTML code which will be displayed in the “work space” once the user has logged on to NTMail.
$BaseDir$/MML/Support.htm
HTML page which will be displayed when the user selects the Support menu option.
$BaseDir$/MML/Domain/Support.htm
HTML page which will be displayed when the user selects the Support menu option specifically for “Domain”.
