Accessing Your Email Accounts By Webmail

Webmail is a convenient way of accessing your email accounts when you do not have access to your home computer or laptop (such as when traveling). With webmail you can access your email accounts from any computer that is connected to the internet, such as internet cafes etc.

If you have a cPanel web hosting account, you can access webmail at the following URL:

http://www.yourdomain.ext/webmail (yourdomain.ext is replaced by you own domain name).

You can also access webmail by logging into your cPanel control panel & clicking on the 'Webmail' icon.

You will be presented with two webmail options, Horde, or Squirellmail. You can choose either option. You should try out both options, to see which you prefer the most.

Logging into Webmail -

You will be prompted for a username & password. Your username is the FULL email address that you are attempting to access. The password is the password that you used when setting up your email account.

Downloading Your Emails To Your Computer Using An Email Client

When viewing & replying to emails it is often more convenient to do so from an email client such as MS Outlook Express than it is from webmail.

When setting up your email client, you will need to know the following settings:

The incoming mail server type is a: POP3 server.

Incoming POP3 mail server address is: mail.yourdomain.ext
(yourdomain.ext is replaced by you own domain name)

Outgoing SMTP mail server address is: mail.yourdomain.ext
(yourdomain.ext is replaced by you own domain name)

Account Name: your FULL email address e.g.: info@yourdomain.ext

Password: The password you used when you setup your email accounts in the control panel.

IMPORTANT: Some Internet Service Providers (ISP's) will not allow you to send outgoing emails using mail.yourdomain.ext as the SMTP server address. If you are unable to send emails using this address, then use the SMTP server provided by your ISP.

We have provided some flash tutorials for setting up your email accounts in some of the popular email clients. These can be viewed by clicking the links below. Note: When viewing the tutorials, remember you will need to use your full email address as the username.
