After a long time, Horde which is one of the most widely used webmail applications on the web gets a big update. At InMotion we've updated to the latest stable release of cPanel which includes the newer Horde 5.1 version.

You can now use Horde mail templates in this new version to help speed up repetitive mailing tasks.

The new version of Horde had quite the design update, it's now much more responsive, so it looks a lot different:

Horde 4.3

Horde 5.1

New features in Horde 5.1

Other than the graphical overhaul, here are some of the other big changes made in the latest version of Horde:

  • Customizable web interface
  • Mobile interface
  • Threaded conversations
  • Calendar with event reminders
  • Advanced task lists

Lost in the new version of Horde?

Currently our support center still has articles that go over the features of the older version of Horde. If you are having any issues at all finding something in the new version that you were use to in the old one, please comment below so that we can update our documentation accordingly.

Not used to using webmail, but was checking it out.  Unable to find any information on how to use Horde.  Email does NOT display HTML content, unable to find any setting where that can be changed.  Unable to find any way to create folders ... all instructions I can find anywhere tell me to click on a selection that does NOT exist.  HELP is completely unhelpful ... doesn't cover how to do even the most basic of tasks.  This may be a very powerful application, but it's virtually useless for my purposes.

Hello Timothy,

We can certainly look into adding articles for the new Horde. In the meantime, please check into the articles we have for the older version of Horde. Many of them will still apply despite any visual differences.

Hello Sam,

We can check your individual server to see what is installed on it. Just reply with it's name below. You can find your server name in the cPanel.

Hello Carlos,

If you want to change an email account password, you will need to do so in either the cPanel or the webmail interface.

Hello Shareefnb,

The autoresponder options are found in the cPanel. They apply by address, and will work whether you are using webmail or another email client. We have a tutorial on creating autoresponders in cPanel that should help you accomplish this request.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Hello Greg,

Sorry to hear you're having problems with email. In general, when you are not receiving email, but getting them to send okay, you need to double-check your mail client settings. Your question is posted under the Horde webmail article and Horde is a server-based email client that works through your browser. It requires your email settings to be correct in order to send AND receive email. These settings are separate, so that's why you are seeing one part of the service work, while the other is not working. If you're running cPanel, you can find your email settings directly under email accounts. Check out this article: How to find my email settings for a quick tutorial with screenshots.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

We have justed started using Horde Groupware Webmail 5.1.1 and are quite impressed.

However, when replying to emails, we would like to have the new email with signature appearing above the quoted (original) email.

Is this possible?  If so, how?  Please advise.  Thanks.

Hello Charles,

Thank you for your Horde signature question. Unfortunately, there is not a way to make the signature appear above the original email.

Please see a similar question we answered here, where we go into detail about moving the Horde signature.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,

How can I change the sender name that the receiver sees in their inbox. For example, I sent a test email to myself and see that my name is in lower case and only gives my first name. How can I edit this? 

Thanks for your help.

Hello Kristen,

You will need to login to the Horde webmail interface. Then click on the gear wheel in top menu. You will want to edit the preferences for MAIL. You will see options to choose an identity - you can have more than one. You can always choose an identity when composing an email. The form provides you several locations to change how you are identifying yourself in the email. Check it out and try sending a couple of sample emails to double check that everything is working okay.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Horde 5.1.1 seems to have some major issues. And their "Help" section is completely unhelpful, with virtually no useful information, not even the basics.

In the 'old Horde' it was very easy to move emails, either one by one or in multiple selections, to the desired mailbox/folder.  I have spent almost 2 hours searching both the Webmail and on the internet and have found absolutely zero instructions on how to move emails to the desired mailbox/folders.  The "Folder" icon is no longer an option in the top menu and the "Folder Actions"  drop down menu does not have any option for moving emails.

What's the point of being able to create new mailboxes if it's impossible to move emails into them?  

And from all my web searches it looks like I'm not the only one with this issue and I didn't find anybody else who actually got an answer to this issue!.

Has Horde removed the ability to move emails to the mailbox/folder of choice?

Hello Karen,

Good question. It had me stumped for a bit too. I was looking for some sort of link, or setting, anything to help move from one folder to another. The trick is actually pretty simple (though Horde shouldn't keep it a secret.) Just 'select' the messages you want to move. Then right click on one of them and hold the button down while you drag it to your desired folder in the left hand side panel. We may have to write an article on this because it is something everyone should know.

Unfortunately with the newer versions of horde I do not believe that is a feature is still available. You would need to use a program like outlook or thunderbird to create list for that purpose.
