I just setup my own Zarafa webmail server. For those that aren’t in the know Zarafa is Linux’s equivalent to Outlook Web Access (OWA). I like all the hard work that Zarafa has put into the software. Their name however is scattered all over the place. Companies also like to rebrand items with their own logo etc.
Let’s say you want to re-brand Zarafa with your own images. Can this be done? Sure! It’s opensource!
In this “How to” article on Zarafa I am using Zentyal as the distribution. These files may be located in another directory if you are using a different distro. For you that are using a different distro and have it working then you should check your apache virtual server config files.
On my server the files needed are located in this directory:
There are 3 main files that need editing:
- login.jpg (Full Webmail Client)
- zarafa_top_logo.gif (Full Webmail Client)
- favicon.ico (Icon displayed in the URL Bar)
Here’s some example of how I changed mine.
How you go about changing those files is up to you. The easiest way to do that is to create a Samba share directly pointing @ the directory noted above. Make sure to remove the permissions once you have finished editing the files.
You could also copy it to another share on the server. Using the copy command “sudo cp” you could copy the files from the share you copied the files to, to the folder that was mentioned above.
Here’s a few screenshots of the new files in action:
Hope this helped you figure out how to re-brand Zarafa to your liking.
