How to enable saving mails as PDF files

Starting from v7.4.0.5, WebMail Pro supports saving messages as PDF files.

To enable this functionality, the following steps should be taken:

1. In data/settings/config.php file, add the following array element:

'labs.allow-save-as-pdf' => true,

2. From wkhtmltopdf website, download wkhtmltopdf package for your operating system. Install it and copy the library file under data/system directory, so the path looks like:

data/system/wkhtmltopdf/linux/wkhtmltopdf

or:

data/system/wkhtmltopdf/win/wkhtmltopdf.exe

NB: You need to make sure the file permissions are set correctly so that the library can be run from within PHP script.

Also, to make this work, you may need to install additional libraries. In case of CentOS Linux, it's done as follows:

yum install libXrender libXext fontconfig

Once the above steps are done, you should be able to download message files and have them converted to PDF files on-the-fly.
