Changing WebMail Data Settings

Axigen Standard WebMail Manual

When accessing the "WebMail Data" page, users have access to settings used to configure the behavior of the WebMail interface.

Appearance

Use the "Skin name" drop-down box to select the skin of your WebMail account. At this time three options are available: "Classic", "Coolwater" and "Webreflection".

The "Language" drop down menu allows you to select the language of the WebMail account. The Axigen Standard WebMail interface is localized in over 20 languages - growing with each new version.

The "Messages per page" text box allows the user to specify the number of messages displayed in the message list.

The "HTML Body Filtering level" specifies which HTML filtering level will be used when displaying HTML format messages. The HTML filtering levels stand for the following:

  • "No Filtering" - malformed HTML content is corrected;
  • "Low level filtering" - executable HTML content such as JavaScript, ActiveX, Flash or Java Applets is removed and malformed HTML content is corrected; external images are not automatically downloaded;
  • "Medium level filtering" - only text with style formatting and images is preserved; external images are not automatically downloaded;
  • "High level filtering" - only text with basic formatting (RTF style) is preserved; this means that only plain text components remain in the message; this forth level is the strictest and may actually damage some formatting, but it is also the safest.

Use the "Week start day" drop-down menu to select a day to be displayed first in the week for your calendar. To specify your "Time Zone", use the corresponding drop-down menu.

The date field is automatically adjusted according to the defined local time zone when displaying a message (in both the message list window and the open message pop-up).

Preferences

Choose to be asked for confirmation before emptying a folder using the "Confirm empty folder" dropdown box.

Choose to ask for a confirmation when an email message is deleted using the "Confirm delete mail" dropdown box.

Use the "Delete to Trash" drop-down box to specify if deleted message should be saved to the "Trash" folder ("Yes") or permanently deleted.

To have a copy of sent messages saved in the "Sent" folder, choose the value "Yes" for the "Save to sent" parameter.

Choose whether or not to have the "Domain contacts" and "Public contacts" folders available for your use by selecting "Yes" or "No" for the corresponding options.

Set the refresh interval for your WebMail interface by typing the desired value in the "Auto-refresh interval" text field. Please note that if you set this value to 0 it means that the option is disabled. The auto-refresh option permits the user to configure the behavior regarding the interval when the WebMail interface will be automatically populated with newly delivered messages.

Use the "Display new email notification" drop-down box to choose if you wish to be notified when a new email arrives. When a new message will be delivered to your mailbox, if you have the browser minimized, the task-bar will flash or, if the browser is not minimized, a pop-up will appear.

To set the default behavior regarding the request of read receipts, set the value for the "Request read receipt" option to "Yes".

You can set the behavior of the user interface for incoming messages that have a read receipt request included (set by the original sender), via the "Send read receipt" parameter. This setting has the following options:

  • "Always send a receipt";
  • "Never send a receipt";
  • "Ask" - a pop-up will be displayed, allowing you to manually choose if you wish to send or not a read confirmation.

The notification pop-up will not be displayed if your WebMail session expires or if the WebMail browser tab is closed.

After changing any of the settings above, remember to press the "Save changes" button to save the new values.

Signature

To configure a signature that will be appended to all your outgoing emails, use the "Signature" section. The signature can be defined with either HTML content or plain text formatting.

When composing an HTML-formatted signature, you can use rich text (bold, italic, underline / strike-through, different font faces and sizes, colors, subscript, superscript, links, bullets etc.). Set these options by clicking on the related icons, shown in the below screenshot.

The above options will not be available if you select plain text formatting for the composed message.
