    I'm trying to skin our x3mail (for webmail users) with our custom theme..
    first issue i'm having is the download from whm is a very broken file..

    second issue is, unlike x3 themes, there seems to be limited docs/info on the mail themes.. what's what, etc.

    can anyone help?

    maybe attach a working x3mail theme so i have a starting point for my edits..

    thanks

    In case anyone else comes across this thread:

    /usr/local/cpanel/base/webmail/x3 is where the basic x3 theming code for webmail is stored. Actually, the vast majority of the content is just linked to /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x3/mail. The only notable files not linked are the logout message and the screen users see upon logging in.

    Remember, the login for webmail is controlled by login themes stored in /usr/local/cpanel/base/unprotected - the default login theme being cpanel.

    EDIT: x3mail is a stripped down x3 theme (for cPanel) that only provides mail functionality. Don't confuse the x3mail cPanel theme with the x3 webmail theme.

    yes at first it wasn't even letting me edit the x3mail (webmail) theme at all.. after fidedling around a bit and switching to the correct theme in the resellers cpanel, I was able to do the simple theming I needed to do.

    thanks for the paths as well.. I wasn't sure where they were and this will help when we do some further theme customizing.
