    Zimbra 9 by Zextras - theme

    Hello,
    first thank you for building Zimbra 9.
    I have version Zimbra 9 by Zextras installed on Centos 8, everything works. I want to ask, can the same theme be applied as Zimbra 8.x? Login screen, etc. There is no practical pop-up display where the background is an image and not the contents of a mailbox.

    Hello JanSkolnik

    Themes are Zimbra components, we cannot do what you ask.
    As explained here we only build Zimbra 9 from Synacor source code, the reason is to provide administrators an easy way to test a Zimbra 9 instance.

    "the reason is to provide administrators an easy way to test a Zimbra 9 instance."

    Hi. Just asking but, why would someone want to test Zimbra 9 as there is no official build from manufacture (synacor) and even worse they stopped releasing a binary of their source? Do you realize there is no difference between this situation and buying lets say, Gmail or Office365?
    It would be fine if Synacor officially says: for OSS builds, please rely on Zextras. But if this doesn't happen, one would just buy Gmail or Office365.

    Hi bulletxt
    As you know Zimbra Open source code is available and what is missing is a professional and tested build for the ones that don't want to do that by themselves.
    That's what Zextras is providing with this project, a way for Zimbra Open Source users to use a Zimbra 9 built by a company that is professionally writing code for Zimbra since 2010 and that deeply knows the Zimbra core.
    I don't think the ones that are looking for our build will compare that to Office365 or Gmail as a choice between the two, they just want the latest version of Zimbra because is the product they want and they don't want to build the code themselves but having someone providing to them the binaries ready to install.
    Best Regards.

    Hi JanSkolnik,
    I think I don't fully understand your question.
    Are you looking to install the Zextras Theme on the Zimbra 9 build by Zextras? That's definitely possible but please confirm your willing :-)
    If you are asking to modify Zimbra 9 build behavior that's not possible because, as GIL said, for this project we want to build the very same code available on Zimbra official repo and not fork it.
    Thank you.
