While this will work, to a point, it is not recommended, because every time you do an upgrade, whether major or minor, you will have to delete all of the locations you have created and re-create both the files which are located in the domain-specific MRS directories and the customizations.
The use of separate IIS host header configurations is also not required, as that will require you to use separate pubic IP addresses for each of your customized domains.
This can all be accomplished through CUSTOM CSS for each of the domains.
Within each e-mail domain you are hosting in SmarterMail, there is a CUSTOMIZATION area which is DOMAIN SPECIFIC.
To customize the color and other settings for the DOMAIN, login as the DOMAIN ADMINISTRATOR and go to SETTINGS ===> DOMAIN SETTINGS ===> PERSONALIZATION
Once there, you will see this window in the right-hand frame:
Clicking on the OVERRIDE SETTINGS option will enable the COLORS and CUSTOM CSS tabs within that menu:
This will then allow you to customize the COLORS throughout the entire domain:
The CUSTOM CSS tab will enable you to create custom CSS code for various pages and apply that to the formatting, overriding the standard formatting.
Remember, no matter what you do to customize your SmarterMail installation, you must keep the name of the produce visible at all times. Per section 9 of the SmarterMail EULA, available at:
9. Limitations to Customization.
Should You choose to alter the appearance and/or user interface of the Software (the "Skin") by using the custom style or Skin options included in certain versions of the Software or by using a third-party process to alter the appearance or interface of the Software, the following requirements must be met:
* You shall maintain and not remove or obscure any proprietary notices in the Software. The SmarterTools name may be displayed in any font type or style, but it must be displayed in no smaller than 8-point font. The name of the Software shall remain visible to the naked eye and free from any clutter or similar color scheme (e.g. black font on a black or similarly dark background that would preclude the user from easily identifying the Software). Use of the qualifiers "powered by" and "provided by" is permitted (e.g. "Powered by SmarterMail"). Any deviation from these limitations must be approved in writing by SmarterTools in advance of implementation and may result in additional license fees, if applicable.
* All applicable copyright and trademark information shall not be removed, remain visible to the naked eye, free from any clutter or similar color scheme, and can be displayed in any font type or style but shall be displayed in no smaller than 8-point font."
