Trying to change mailbox.css with no effect. | Forum

Since I have enlarged avatar images, I also need to adjust the text in messages page where the text is in disorder and overlaps other elements.
I have turned the dev mode on and via ftp i'm 'trying' to modify mailbox.css. stored in ow_static/plugins/mailbox/css.
I ask for help becouse when I modify the code on the css file, the change is not visible in the page. Absolutely not any kind of modification on the css is shown. What am I missing? Someone can help? Thanks.

Ok, there is un update:
I have found that modifying another copy of the same css file stored in ow_plugins/mailbox/static/css the edit will take place and will be shown. But, just a question... which is the difference between the two different folders? I mean between ow_static and ow_plugin?
And also, what will happen when I update the plugin to anext version? Will my css be overwritten? Thanks.
I hope  my post could be helpful to others too.

Yes, it will be overwritten. Moreover assets files in ow_static directory will be overriten on every oxwall cache purge - it is just public directory for storing such static content for plugins/themes etc visible for web.
