I like blogging but the past few weeks (maybe months?) my posts have gotten a little sparse — but for good reason! I’ve been working hard on completing another project and this weekend was the launch date!
What Is CustomWebmail.com?
I do a lot of contract work ranging from programming applications to fixing other in-house developed applications. One job that always gets a lot of interest is customizing a corporate Outlook Web Access login page. I’ve done several of these for a variety of companies.
The idea behind the website was to move the entire customization process online and then present the user with a nice neat .zip file of the resources they would need to install on their webmail server.
How It Was Made
The site uses ASP.NET MVC, C# and jQuery — I couldn’t find a use for my jLinq project, unfortunately :). The site does a lot of interesting things in the code like checking remote sites via HttpWebRequest or creating HTML and image slices using the System.Drawing classes. Over the next few weeks I’ll go over some of the more interesting parts of how the site works.
For now, if you have any Server Admin buddies that might be interested, please tell them about http://www.CustomWebmail.com.
