CSS Detailed Documentation
Question asked by Michael Lewis - 11/28/2014 at 2:15 PM

How far can we change items using the built-in CSS edit section? For example, I would like to change the top-right "SmarterMail...." wording to reflect the clients comapny name; it just add a bit more personalization for the client. I thought I could just enter:
 
<div class="header clearfix" id="PageHeader">
            <h1>
                SmarterMail Enterprise 13.0
            </h1>
</dev>
in the CSS section and modify the name and be done with it. However, that didn't work. Is there more to it? Is there a document that gives details about how to go about doing this? I've already been though the help files and KB.

I know that all of SmarterTools products are now based off of Zurb Foundation (http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/). As to removing the SmarterMail name I don't think that is allowed to be done.

Per SmarterMail's agreement, the SmarterMail name must remain visible, in at least 8 point type. It cannot be removed.

I think the larger question would be why not allow that area to be customized? At the end of the day, it's the small things that keep users using our services. The end-user (business owner) doesn't care who made the software, but gee, wouldn't it be neat if "my employee's" could see our company logo? or company MOTD? or something meaningful to them.
 
It would be nice if the domain admin of each company could customize the area with their co. logo.

That's pretty cool software; I will have to look at it for other uses - thanks!

Because it's part of SmarterMail's / SmarterTools licensing agreement.

Would you rather pay a whole lot more for the privilege of customization?

Remember, you can ADD a logo, and it would be nice to be able to customize the logo based on the customer who is logged in, but you cannot remove the SmarterMail name from the product.

We actually like having the name shown. It lets our customers know what we use. Everyone knows of Yahoo, Google and Microsoft which also show there names. We are proud to have SmarterTools as part of our solution for our customers.

With that said I do see the benefit of adding a logo but would not want to lose the SmarterMail name.

I'm not requesting a white-label solution, just a little more customization. SmaterMail is already on the login screen, ST copy-write is at the bottom - all of which I'm fine with.

I'm just looking at it from a customers view; offering something a little more than the "big guys", no matter how small, is what differentiates us from them... it's why they ultimately decided to use you - right?
