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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Enter your username and password, and then click OK.
You should now be logged in! Click on one of the three webmail clients and get started using your email!
What if I forget my password? (contact your website editor)
Do I choose SquirrelMail, Horder, or Roundcube?
Should I use SquirrelMail, Horde, or Roundcube!
After logging into, 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
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:
