The appearance of MailStore Client, MailStore Web Access, and MailStore Outlook Add-in can be customized easily to match your corporate design.

Modify and Activate Branding

Follow the instructions below to apply your own branding:

  • Open Windows Explorer on the Management Server.
  • Navigate to the config subdirectory of the MailStore Service Provider Edition installation. (Default: %PROGRAMFILES%\MailStore Infrastructure\config).
  • Create a new folder named Branding.
  • Store all files necessary for branding in this newly created folder. Find further details about the branding parameters in Client Branding and Web Branding below.
    Important notices: The dimensions of the images must remain unchanged and no syntax errors must be made when editing JSON files. If necessary, test the JSON files at http://jsonlint.com/. Sample files can be found in the ‘Branding.sample’ folder located in the config subdirectory. The about.html file needs to have an UTF-8 BOM (byte order mark) or else it cannot be loaded.
  • Log on to the Management Console, if not already logged on.
  • Navigate to Navigation > Developer> Management API and select ReloadBranding from the drop down menu then press Invoke to activate the new branding.
