    Is it possible to set up branding for the "Mail Management" screen that individual users see?

    It is rather straight forward to do branding to the Mail Management screen. In fact the method is the same for branding of WHM and cPanel. I will show you the way to add your own logo or domain name to the 'x' theme. I will post the method in the next message .... coming up the next few minutes.

    Let's assume we want to place a logo to the top-left corner on the Mail Management screen. The image on 'x" theme is top_01-mail_1.gif (you can see the filename and URL if you right-click on the image).

    1) First, locate where top_01-mail_1.gif is.
    # root@server01 [~]# locate top_01-mail_1.gif
    /usr/local/cpanel/base/webmail/x/images/top_01-mail_1.gif <===
    /usr/local/cpanel/base/webmail/monsoon/images/top_01-mail_1.gif

    2) We found the location of the image. Now we go there .....
    root@server01 [~]# cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/webmail/x/images

    3) Now copy the image to one of your accounts.
    # cp top_01-mail_1.gif /home/username/public_html/

    4) Change the ownership of the file so that we may download it.
    # cd /home/username/public_html
    # chown username:username top_01-mail_1.gif

    5) Download the image with your FTP client. Use an image editor to add your logo onto the image. Once done, upload it back to your account.

    6) Copy the modified image back to its original position.
    # cp top_01-mail_1.gif /usr/local/cpanel/base/webmail/x/images/
    --- Confirm to replace ---

    7) Refresh your browser and you will see the changes. DONE!

    If I understand correctly SuperBaby.. the method you suggest would require access to the folder housing those images and would make changes to all webmail users on the server. I am a reseller without access to the whole server.. and I am looking to brand the mail management section for my clients only, in the same manner that i can brand cpanel.

    If I am not understanding this correctly, please straighten me out.

    Yes, that would affect ALL users.

    I don't understand why this theme like every other one can just be edited through WHM, that would make things so much easier :)

    Yes, it would. So, put in a feature request - cPanel are fairly good about doing feature requests. If you don't request it, it won't happen....
