    Default Safari 3.0 and German Keyboard

    Hi Zimbra Team,

    just wanted to drop a note that using Safari 3 on German Mac OS X works great except that you are not able to type an "@" in the "To:"-Field when creating a new message. Firefox works, Safari not. Typing "@" on a German Mac OS X is typing "alt" and "L", btw.

    Thanks for your great work,
    Andreas

    Default Alt+L is a shortcut

    Hi,

    found the reason myself. "Alt"+"L" is a shortcut... The only strange thing is that Firefox is working as expected in "To"-Fields...

    But now the next question: is it possible to redefine or modify the shortcuts (so that i might be able to type "Alt" + "L" in Safari)

    My users also report this problem:
    Mac OS X (Leopard)
    Safari
    Firefox 2.x

    Can't input @-sign (Alt+L) in to-field while composing a new email in webclient. Also affected is the desktop client.

    Where can i change the shortcuts?

    In a post from 2006 it is supposed to change shurtcuts in ZmKeyMap.js, but this file doesn't contain a definition for Alt+L.

    Default no @ for german zimbra user, therefore composing mail do not work !!!

    hi,

    this problem occours on ALL osx versions with ALL browser not only for Safari!

    for me this is really a major bug because for macintosh users, it's NOT possible to compose a mail with zimbra (web and standalone), because it's not possible to enter a "@" char with the os x standard Shurtcut for it - "Alt+L".

    zimbra chooses "Alt+L" as shortcut for "low priority".
    ...,so you can see, it seems not easy to find reasonable shortcuts ;-)
    are there no german zimbra developer which are using osx?

    well, i've already solved this issue on my own, and now "@" is now working as expected :-)

    i'm worry about that,
    nean

    You can modify the respective /opt/zimbra/mailboxd/webapps/zimbra/WEB-INF/classes/keys ZmKeys_de.properties & ZhKeys_de.properties files:
    compose.LowPriority = Alt+L

    Could one of you file a Localization (L10n) bug?

    You could also add a line in the _de files so only German mac users have a different key:
    compose.LowPriority = Alt+L
    compose.LowPriority.mac = Ctrl+L

    (or something like Ctrl+Alt+L)

    Note: If you get * stars in the thread email ignore them (I bolded the .mac part at first to highlight it, but realized that often shows weird in the subscription email.)

    Simply:
    compose.LowPriority.mac = Ctrl+L
