With the advent of Notes 8.0, we introduced CSS styles in the Inbox. The styles set in CSS override the attributes set in Domino Designer. The question we have for you, is how should we handle personal folders? Right now, there are no CSS styles in the personal folders, so the look of these are controlled by the settings in Domino Designer. This has been a problem for some, in that their Inbox style does not match their Personal Folder style. In particular, the look of a 'read' e-mail in the Inbox (Sent, Drafts, All Docs, Trash) is a dark gray, while the look of a 'read' e-mail in a personal folder is black. This is because the dark gray (in the Inbox) is set in the CSS but is not picked up by the Personal Folders.
Please let us know which of these solutions you prefer:
- Keep things as is, with the Inbox (and other system folder/views) different than Personal Folders.
- If a user performs an Upgrade Folders command, apply the CSS from the Inbox to the Personal Folders, so that the styles match.
- Always extend CSS files to personal folders, so they automatically look the same as the Inbox (and other folder/views).
