    Redesign: A new look for the Inxmail Professional user interface

    Inxmail Professional has a whole new look. From now on, you will notice a new colour concept and modern icons throughout the entire software. The tab display, also called the tab navigation, has been redesigned for improved usability.

    New colour concept

    Mailing lists will be displayed in green and mailings will be blue in Inxmail Professional 4.8 and higher. This will apply to the respective icons, as well as the corresponding coloured tabs for open mailing lists and mailings.

    Global objects will be displayed in yellow and list-related objects will be grey. This means that if you create target groups under the global settings, these will be displayed in a yellow-coloured tab. Target groups that you create in a specific mailing list will be displayed in a blue-grey-coloured tab.

    The new colour concept will help you to navigate the software using the corresponding coloured tabs, icons and buttons.

    New tab concept

    The redesigned tab navigation is organised according to a principle of proximity. There is a clear space between the mailing list tabs and the global object tabs. By contrast, the spaces between the open objects of a mailing list are minimal so that they can be viewed together.

    The new colour concept will help you to quickly distinguish between different tabs. A clearly designed menu on the right edge helps you to keep an overview of several open tabs and to navigate them faster.

    Modern outline icons

    We have introduced reduced outline icons to make the symbols more easily recognisable. The mailing type and mailing list icons are in keeping with the colour concept. In contrast, icons in the toolbars are in muted colours. Alongside improved usability, the new icon style forms a significant part of the new look’s overall impression.

    New display concept for mailing icons

    We have used the following graphics to make this new display concept for the mailing status and mailing types a bit easier to understand.

    General improvements/upgrades

    Encrypted file transfer to the webspace

    With your Inxmail Professional client, you can also use an Inxmail web space to upload files (such as images) in order to link them to your mailing. For customers who use such a web space at Inxmail, the following applies:

    The communication when uploading files and selecting a file on the web space will be completely encrypted in the future. The necessary changes to the connection data for your web space are automatically entered in your Inxmail Professional client. You can use the web space as usual after the changeover.

    The "Tracking Permission" column is available in (standard) mailing list test profiles.

    REST API

    The following conflict handling can now be used for the CSV recipient import

    • leave existing column values unchanged
    • extend existing column values
    • overwrite existing column values but not with blank import values
    • overwrite all existing column values

    The tracking permission of a recipient can now be changed via e-mail address.

    All tracking permissions of a recipient can be retrieved via e-mail address.

    Individual recipients can be changed with attributes via e-mail address

    Updates

    Java

    Java was updated to version 8u181.

    JxBrowser

    Znxmail Professional uses the JxBrowser to display web-based components. The JxBrowser is updated with Inxmail Professional 4.8.0.
    The JxBrowser is a separate application that is installed with Inxmail Professional.
    It is started automatically by Inxmail Professional if necessary.
    To make an automatic start possible, your Windows settings should be set up so that applications from the Inxmail Professional installation directory can be started.

    Details (You may need the support of your administrator)
    To start the JxBrowser you must ensure that the file "browsercore32.exe" can be executed. When installed with default paths, the file is stored in the following directory: "%APPDATA%/Inxmail/Inxmail_Client_Professional/work/jxbrowser_6.21/chromium". We recommend that you allow the start of applications from "% APPDATA% / Inxmail / Inxmail_Client_Professional" in general, so that new components can also be started for future Inxmail Professional updates.
