Manage your webmail interface branding (OpenSRS control panel)

Branding is the process of changing the look and feel of the Webmail interface to visually represent your company. Branding may include adding proprietary logos, changing type face, adding company colors, and inserting ads or dynamic content.

There are three distinct phases in managing a brand:

1. Creating the brand.

2. Designing or customizing the brand.

3. Assigning the brand.

When you create a new brand, it is always based on the default brand. Once you create the brand, you can display and customize it to achieve your desired look.

Brands can be assigned company-wide and also per specific domain.  The process is very similar, so be sure you are in the correct spot in order to assign the brand to the correct item.
