You need to first create a custom Simplex skin in the CGP interface. Then, you download strings.wssp from Simplex and edit what you need, and you upload it back to the custom skin you created.

For Viewpoint, you need to do the same. However Viewpoint does not contain all settings, as it takes its defaults from Simplex. So you can copy changed settings from Simplex's to Viewpoint.

Thanks Nicolas.


Does anyone know what file needs to be edited (on a linux server) to change Viewpoint and Simplex so that they can be configured to go straight into the Inbox?

I assume it is a file under /var/CommuniGate/WebSkins/Simplex and Viewpoint or under /opt/CommuniGate/WebSkins/Simplex and Viewpoint.


Thanks & Regards

I have been asked to compare LookOut to the standard skins that are supplied with CommuniGate Pro. Looking at the skins available with the 5.2 and 5.3 version range of CommuniGate Pro I find that there are some features which are available in LookOut that I cannot find in the normal webmail skins. These are:


The three pane view while in a mail folder

To be fair with other skins, the GoldenFleece one has a three-pane layout. But I'm not sure it is really usable (doesn't seem to work well in anything but IE6, and even there...). I think initially GoldenFleece has been inspired by LookOut 1.x, as there is at least a very short code snipplet that was apparently copied from it... :-)

Going straight into the Inbox instead of that day’s “summary” when you initially login

ViewPoint, XChange and Simplex can be configured to skip the summary.
