In this tutorial:

Where do I login?

Enter your domain name below and click the button to visit your webmail login page.

Access Webmail Login Page

You will be asked for a username and password. The username will be your full email address (all lowercase). The password will be your email address password. Forgot your password?

What is Webmail?

There are several ways you can check your email. For example, you can setup a desktop email client such as Microsoft Outlook, Mac Mail or web-based clients such as Gmail to check your email. You can also check your email from your phone, such as an iPhone or an Android phone.

Like the previous examples, webmail is another tool you can use to send and receive email. Webmail is different because you can access it using a web browser. It doesn't require you to setup the software. You can simply log into webmail and begin to use it.

Note! Before you attempt to log into webmail Be sure that you have first created an email address within your cPanel.

Steps for logging into webmail

The steps below will show you how to login to webmail. In this example, we are assuming the email address you want to check is user@yourdomain.com

  1. Visit yourdomain.com/webmail

    Be sure to replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name.

  2. Enter your username and password, and then click OK.

    User Name: Enter your full email address, all lower case
    Password: Enter your email address' password

    I don't see where to enter my username / password
    I forgot my email password

  3. You should now be logged in! Click on one of the three webmail clients and get started using your email!

    Do I choose SquirrelMail, Horder, or Roundcube?

Troubleshooting Webmail Problems:

I'm am not prompted for a username / password

If you are not asked to enter a username and password when visiting yourdomain.com/webmail, please instead try going to webmail.yourdomain.com.

This issue is usually caused by a firewall within your network blocking the webmail ports of 2095 and 2096. Using webmail.yourdomain.com allows you to access webmail over port 80, the normal port used for web traffic.

I forgot my password

If you forgot your email address' password, the easiest solution is to reset your email address password within cPanel and then try to log into webmail again.

I Don't Know whether I should click on SquirrelMail, Horde, or Roundcube!

After logging into webmail, you'll be presented with three options: Horde, Roundcube, and SquirrelMail. These three options are different webmail clients that can be used for sending and reading email. All of them show you your email, however each of them has their own look & feel as well as their own unique features.

The 3 available Webmail Clients
SquirrelMail Limited in features, however this allows you to quickly read and respond to email
Horde Has more functionality than SquirrelMail, however this can at times make the software slower and more "busy"
Roundcube Is the new kid on block, just recently introduced into cPanel. Feature wise it falls in between SquirrelMail and Horde, however it has a very clean look and feel to it, similar to a desktop client such as Mac Mail our Outlook

What's Next?

In addition to webmail, there are a few other email features that can be used on our servers. You may be interested in learning more about:

  • Email Forwarding - automatically forward emails to another email address
  • Auto Responders - going on vacation? setup an auto respond to notify others when they email you that you are out of the office
  • Spam Assassin - if you're having a problem with spam, start by setting up and configuring Spam Assassin

Hello Deissy,

If you are having difficulty logging into your email account, you may want to reset the password. You can do this via the cPanel. Check out our article on Changing your email password for step by step instructions.

Our company just switched to you for our email provider. I was able to set up my Android device with no hitch, but am having trouble logging in via webmail. The automatic access box doesn't work (Server Error 404). Neither www.ourcompany.com/webmail nor webmail.ourcompany.com work.

 

Any ideas. Thanks!

Thank you!

Hello Chris,

In order to to login to webmail using your domain name, you'd need to first make sure that your domain is fact pointing to our server with DNS records. I believe that was your issues here.

Glad to see you got things figured out, if you had any other questions at all, please let us know!

Yes! In case it helps anyone in the future, the domain name for accessing your webmail may very well NOT be your business name but rather the domain address that you'd use for setting up your email on your cell phone.

Hello Pat, sorry to hear about the troubles you are having.

I see that you're logging into the RoundCube webmail client, do you notice if you also have these issues when using any of the other webmail clients?

Also it looks like possibly you could be having an issue with your cPanel security tokens.

I would recommend if possible making sure you are completely logged out of cPanel and webmail. Then attempt to access webmail directly via example.com/webmail using your own domain of course. You should get redirected to the server's secure webmail address and notice a bit in the URL like :2096/cpsess8986788/webmail/ towards the middle. Do you notice if that cpsess number is changing on you when webmail is logging you out?

Hello jaroslaw,

If you are unable to login to your email account, you might need to change the email password for your account to ensure you are using the correct credentials.

Are you having issues logging into your mail from both webmail as well as your desktop mail client?

Hello Nang,

Sorry to hear about the problem you're having with mail on your iPhone. Unfortunately, unless you provide us with some detailed information on the settings you're using it's difficult for us to determine what exactly is happening. If you can provide a domain name, we can at least check to see if email operations are normal. Please provide us more information so that we can troubleshoot the issue.

Check out this article for further information on troubleshooting sending email issues.

The typical webmail URL is something like this:

example.com/webmail

Or as per your reply you can also use https://secure124.inmotionhosting.com:2096/ OR http://secure124.inmotionhosting.com/webmail. We would need account specific information if the issue is related to a specific email account. Otherwise, we can check email operations with a domain name.


Regards,
Arnel C.

But don't send a reply to that email right now because that is my problem. I can't get into my webmail.  It comes up with a screen stating that the site is "Untrusted Connection" ??  What do I do now?

Hello Ronald, and thanks for your comment.

If you are attempting to securely access webmail on your VPS and don't have a SSL certificate for your hostname. You will get a self-signed SSL certificate warning.

You can simply proceed past this warning to continue accessing your webmail. If you wanted to use a real SSL certificate to avoid this warning you could always purchase a SSL certificate for your server.

Please let us know if you have any other questions at all.
