I have customized the branding for Cpanel in WHM so that my customers see my logo/graphics when logging into their individual cpanel.

However, when they log out, they get the default "thank you for using Cpanel Webmail" graphics, not a custom graphic.

Is there any way to modify this second set of logout/log-back-in graphics?

Thanks,

Yes, by creating a custom login theme. I'm doing a presentation on this topic (and similar branding-related topics) at this year's cPanel Conference *shameless plug*.

You can find the custom login theme in /usr/local/cpanel/base/unprotected/cpanel where cpanel is the name of the login theme. I recommend you make a copy of the cpanel folder and perform your modifications on your copy. You can set the login theme via WHM -> Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings.

David:

Under the cpanel/ directory in my hosting accounts (two different resellers), I only see the directories /caches and /datastore.

Am I in the wrong dir or do I need to ask my host to install something?

You do not have access to this as a reseller, only root users have access to this.
So even if I have a vitrual root (main reseller account) I am out of luck?

I assume from what you are saying that it could only be customized on a per (physical) server basis then?

At this time, this is done on a per-server basis. If you have access to user root via SSH (even via sudo) then you can change this. However, root-level reseller will not be sufficient access to change this.
