HOWTO: Branding the Administrator Console in MailMarshal SPE

Expand / Collapse

This article applies to:

  • MailMarshal SPE 3.0 through 4.2


  • How can I customize the look of the MailMarshal SPE Administrator Console site?


The most basic level of customization for the Administrator Console website is setting of your product name and company name. This feature is available through the Admin Web Console user interface.

For additional customization, you can edit some CSS stylesheets and replace some images.

This article provides general guidance.

All files are located within the Web Console website folder. By default this folder is created at one of these locations:

  • (SPE 4.X, new installations) C:\Program Files\Trustwave\Trustwave SPE\Website\
  • (SPE 3.X and upgrades to 4.X, 64 bit systems) C:\Program Files (x86)\Marshal\MailMarshal SPE\Website\ 
  • (SPE 3.X, 32 bit systems) C:\Program Files\Marshal\MailMarshal SPE\Website\


  • Change only the files referenced below, and test any changes. Changing other files could have unpredictable results.
  • Save your changed files in another location. Future upgrades or installation repair actions could overwrite your changes.
  • Ensure that you set the correct Windows file permissions for any files you copy from other locations.
  • You may need to clear the local browser cache to see updated images.
