Horde, Roundcube and SquirrelMail Webmails come with most cPanel’s by default. Most times many people find it difficult to login to their Webmail because they will have to first login to their cPanel first then from there they can then login to their Webmail accounts. Today I want to show you a work-around so you can be able to directly login to any of Horde, Roundcube or SquirrelMail Webmail without having to login to your cPanel first. Now let’s get started…
First login to your website’s cPanel and create a subdomain, lets call the subdomain “email” so it will look like this; email.your-domain.com .
Do not use “mail” as your subdomain for emails as it is already your email path. You can choose anything at all that you will like but do not ever choose “mail”.
Login to your Webmail:
Next will be to login to your Webmail via your cPanel. Click on the email accounts under the Mail section of you cPanel, then click on the more button on and of the email addresses you want to check and a drop down will appear, click on the “Access Webmail” and enter your email password on the page that will open on another tab.
Then click the login button to get logged in. On successful login, you will see a screen like the one below displaying the different Webmails to choose from.
Copy the URL & edit the Subdomain:
Then copy the URL on your browser address bar and go to the subdomain you already created earlier, click on the “Manage Redirect” and enter the copied URL and save.
Now visit email.your-domain.com and you will be immediately asked to enter your email address and password. Now every time you want to check your Webmail, you don’t have to login to your cPanel anymore, simply visit the email.your-domain.com and enter your details.
Enter your email address in full in this format firstname.lastname@example.org and password then click login to be logged in to your email account. Now i hope you can be able to create your email subdomain, edit it and login to your email account always without having to go through your cPanel. What do you think of this tutorial?
