WebMail skins folder structure
To create or modify WebMail skin, create new or modify existing style-sheet file styles.css.
How skins are stored in WebMail:
* All skins are located in skins folder under WebMail directory.
* Each skin is a folder inside skins folder.
* The skin folder's name is a skin name (e.g. AfterLogic skin resides in skins\AfterLogic folder).
* Each skin folder contains styles.css file and related images.
* The system automatically scans skins folder to get skins list each time you enter WebMail's Administration panel.
* Thus, to create new skin, just copy skins\AfterLogic folder with all contents to new skin name (for example, skins\MySkin), and then modify styles in skins\MySkin\styless.css file. You can use any CSS editor for this purpose (such as free TopStyle Lite editor) or any text editor (such as Notepad).
You may also modify images in skins\MySkin folder if you want to.
Finally, select new style in skins drop-down list in "Administration Panel\Webmail settings" dialog.
Unlike main WebMail skins, calendar skins are located in calendar/skins folder (not "skins"), filename of calendar styles is calendar_styles.css (not styles.css).
All icons used in WebMail are placed in 2 base .png files: mail.png and editor.png. File mail.png contains icons for toolbar, folders, contacts and others. mail.png for "AfterLogic" skin looks like this:
