    Default change the default string in search box

    Dear All,

    Is it possible to change the default string in the search box ?

    Currently, it's "in:inbox" , is it possible to set it some words like:
    "please input keyword here" ? so that users can understand
    they can enter some keyword here and do a search.

    "in:inbox" is difficult to undersand what it means...

    any advice?

    Thanks.

    Default

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
    In 5.0.10 it shows as search within the Ajax client.

    It actually shows the word 'Search on recent versions. I would, however, suggest that this is more a user education issue than a change to Zimbra. There's no easy way to change the text but you could always file an RFE.

    Default

    I notice that Zimbra Desktop (build 1531) is now putting the current folder into the search field. E.g. "in:sent". This is quite useful behavior because it lets the user quickly run a filter on the current folder (in a sense commonly used in other programs, not in the sense of "mail rule").

    Is this somehow available in the web client...or planned...or should I make an RFE?
