    1. Hello Manuel – If you look in Softaculous under PERL, you’ll find Dada mail as an option you can install for free. You are also not limited to what is provided on the server. The webmail options of Horde (recently deprecated) and Roundcube are provided through the cPanel backend. Still, you can also use an email client of your choice, such as Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Gmail, etc. You would need to connect those email clients to your account.
