Using webmail
Posted by Serhiy Hryva on 31 January 2011 03:25 PM

You can use either the webmail interface or an email client. If you need help configuring email clients, please visit the step-by-step guides for configuring [MS Outlook] or [Mozilla Thunderbird.]

You can access your WebMail interface by just visiting: http://www.yourdomain.com/webmail/, replacing 'yourdomain.com' with your actual domain name.

 Note: Please use the full e-mail account username to login to the webmail interface or when setting your e-mail client software. Example: user@yourdomain.com instead of user.

Once you login, you can choose between two webmail clients: Horde and SquirrelMail. It is up to you to choose which one you like better.

If you login to your webmail through the Webmail icon on your cPanel main page, you will be logged in with the default system email account.

 Note: Please do not use the default email account, because very often emails send from the system email accounts are going to the Junk folders.

In order to use your email you have to create another email account with the same or different username.

To login to one of your added accounts from your cPanel, you should go to Email Accounts and then click the Access Webmail icon next to the account you wish to access. Then you should type in the password corresponding to the account and click on [Login].

How to send e-mail messages?

You can easily send email messages via the webmail client you have chosen. Just find the [New message] button in Horde or the [Compose] button in Squirrelmail and you will be able to start writing your message.

 Note: Make sure to SAVE your message if it is too long or you want to write it for a longer period of time. The web mail program may drop the connection and you might lose your email.
