Creating Message of the Day for Administrators
Global administrators can create messages of the day (MOTD) that can be viewed when global administrators log into the administration console.
A global or domain multi-value attribute, zimbraAdminConsoleLoginMessage, is used to create a MOTD. The message is created from the CLI zmprov.
Every time an admin logs in the message displays at the top left on the administration console. They can close the message. The message displays until it is replaced or removed.
Example of a Message of the Day

You can create more than one message to display. Run the command again to create additional messages, but add a plus sign (+) before the attribute, as in this example
To remove a message of the day
To remove a specific message, type the attribute, adding a minus sign (-) before the attribute and type the message as it is shown.
