Advanced configuration

Admin interface of WebMail Lite allows for setting primary configuration options. Advanced configuration is done via editing configuration files. Due to modular structure of the product, settings are stored in main configuration file data/settings/config.json and in configuration file of each specific module, data/settings/modules/MODULENAME.config.json file.

The list below holds the global settings of WebMail Lite while module-specific configuration options can be found at: Modules settings reference
