ME020524 - HOWTO: How to set the MailEnable web mail HTML editor to perform linebreaks when pressing "enter" in the compose window


SUMMARY

When composing a message the HTML editor in MailEnable will do a paragraph break (<P></P> in HTML) when pressing "Enter" on the keyboard. This can be altered so that linebreaks (<BR>) will occur when pressing "Enter" on the keyboard.

DETAIL

  • Open the compose.aspx file in Notepad from the following path "Mail Enable\bin\Netwebmail\hoodoo\lang\en\forms\mai".
  • Find the following line:

<FTB:FreeTextBox id="freeTextBox" runat="Server" AutoGenerateToolbarsFromString="false" TabIndex="11" ClientSideTextChanged="NotifyTextChanged"/>

  • Edit this line to include BreakMode="LineBreak", so it looks like:

<FTB:FreeTextBox id="freeTextBox" BreakMode="LineBreak" runat="Server" autoGenerateToolbarsFromString="false" TabIndex="11" ClientSideTextChanged="NotifyTextChanged"/>

  • Save the file.
