Webmail allows you to access your email from any computer with an Internet connection and a web browser. It also allows each email user access to manage their email account and password. Please make sure to log out after you have checked your email on public computers so that other people cannot read your email.
This tutorial applies to cPanel Web Hosting because Webmail access comes with built-in. We assume you have already created the email account from cPanel, and you have your email address and its password. If you do not remember the password of an email account, you can login to cPanel to reset it.
To go to the webmail interface, you enter the following address on an Internet browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Opera:
(replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name)
This will redirect you to secure webmail interface (over SSL) and ask you to provide your email login details.
Enter your email address and password to login.
First time you login, you’ll be presented with two webmail interfaces choices i.e. RoundCube and Horde.
Each has its own features. Roundcube seems to be quite popular among users due to its modern design. You also have the following options, among many others, when you login to webmail:
Set up email on your device: To configure email client software on your computer or mobile device.
Autoresponders: When you are away from computer/emails for extended period of time (e.g. on vacation), you can set your away message here. For more details check this tutorial.
Email Filters: To setup email filters. For more details check this tutorial.
Forwarders: To forward a copy of incoming email to another email address or script.
Password: Change your email address password.
Once you are done checking your email, you can click logout on any webmail interface and it will log you out completely. Let us know if you face any problem with using webmail on cPanel Web Hosting.
