    Default [SOLVED] change "Username:" on login page

    I have looked through past posts on this and can't seem to get this changed. I've grep'd through the /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra directory for "Username:" and changed everything I can find and I still get the Username: text. I am running the latest NE on Ubuntu.

    Consequently, I was able to change the colors via the beach skin and Zimbra logo. Just having trouble changing the text on the login screen.

    Have you taken a look at Rebranding Articles - Zimbra :: Wiki as one of those may help you ?

    cd /opt/zimbra/mailboxd/webapps/zimbra/WEB-INF/classes/messages
    nano ZmMsg.properties:
    accountTestErrorMissingInfo = You must specify the username, server, and password.
    badUsername = Your username must be a valid email address.
    enterUsername = Please enter your username and password.
    loginError = The username or password is incorrect. Verify that CAPS LOCK is not on, and then retype the current username and password
    username = Username
    usernameLabel = Username:
    Change to what you desire then zmmailboxdctl restart.

    You actually want the 'username' one not 'usernameLabel' - even though it seems like the one with the : is the one you want - the colon is actually hard coded.
    /opt/zimbra/mailboxd/webapps/zimbra/public/login.jsp contains:
    <td class="zLoginLabelContainer"><label for="username"><fmt:message key="username"/>:</label></td>
    <input id="username" class="zLoginField" name="username" type="text" value="${fn:escapeXml(param.username)}" />
