Webmail is a tool that allows you to send and receive email from your web browser. Beow will expalin the basics of webmail

Accessing webmail from your browser

To access your webmail, you will need to do the following.

  1. first visit http://yourdomain.com/webmail. Please be sure to replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name.
  2. When you access this page, it will then prompt you for a username and password.

    Important!The username will be the FULL email address of the account you want to log into, and the password is the password you created for that email account when it was initially created within cPanel.

  3. If you do not remember this password, you can reset it by logging into the Email Accounts section of your cPanel and clicking the Change Password link next to the email account in question.

Webmail program options

Once you have logged in successfully, you will see three options:

  • Horde
  • SquirrelMail
  • RoundCube

These three webmail applications allow you to send and receive email. They all show you the same email, but several different webmail applications are provided as a convenience.

All three webmail applications have a different look and feel to the way they work, and some users prefer one over the other. SquirrelMail is the more basic application of the three, while Horde and RoundCube give you more tools to work with.

Webmail AutoLoad

Webmail includes an AutoLoad option. If you find yourself using the same Webmail interface each time you check your email, such as SquirrelMail, you can enable that particular Webmail interface to load automatically the next time you log into Webmail.

To enable AutoLoad, click "Enable AutoLoad" under the Webmail interface of your choice (Horde, SquirrelMail, or RoundCube). You will then be asked to enter the number of seconds to wait until that Webmail interface is loaded the next time you log in.

Note! If you enter 5, for example, the initial Webmail page will show for 5 seconds until your chosen Webmail interface auto loads.

To cancel the AutoLoad, click the "Stop" button when you see the message that states your selected Webmail interface is about to load, and then click Disable AutoLoad.
