Do not edit these files manually, use the builtin language file editor instead.
What do you mean Till?

With which file editor you can suggest me to edit a nice welcome message?

Thanks
Michele

Actually, all of this can be done right from the ISPConfig control panel.

System > Languages > en_mail_user.lng > welcome_mail_subject && welcome_mail_message

Till, is this HTML compatible? I haven't figured out the right syntax for breaks and such.

I did this edit a while back using the built in editor but now it seems to have returned to default. Do changes to the language files get lost on updates? They shouldn't as it is kind of a pain to re-edit them all.

(Also some of the language files use other hostnames eg: fi)

They have to be changed as it would not be possible to add new features in ispconfig woithout changing the language files

If you want to maintain your own language file set, then use the import and export functions of the language editor to make a backup or create a new custom language file set under a new language key that is not used by any iso language code like "xy".

Could they be saved in the database rather than files? Then new features could be added without rewriting old. (Future release suggestion).

Also, maybe a 'Select All' for the import and export functions could be added.

Also, export puts the file on the remote server, import looks on the local computer. These should be consistent so files can be imported and exported from the same location, either local or remote. Had to do this today after my update issue.

The export presents you a link to download the file and you should then always store the file locally as the temporary copy of the file on the server gets deleted automatically. The file can not be offered for download automatically (ispconfig 3 is a ajax interface).

Default Language files

Like the user above, I would like to have the welcome message come from someone in the same domain. Is it possible to use a variable to send the welcome message from "hostmaster@newdomain.tld" instead of a hard coded address?

Thanks,

There are no variables available in the email address. Feel free to make a feature request in the bugtracker, if you like so see such a feature in a future version.

I have just upgraded to 3.0.4 and can no longer find the options in the "en_mail_user.lng" file.
Is it now located somewhere else, or has something gone wrong?
