1stcom Web Hosting / Email Instructions

Accessing web mail


You can use the Mail Menu to access one of the three web mail programs included in cPanel. These programs will allow you to read your email through a browser window without having to make any changes to the computer you are on or leave any email on the computer you are on. Webmail is meant to be used as a temporary access to read email when you are away from home/office, when you return home be sure to dowload your email to your computer.


1  To access the WebMail, type your domain name /webmail in a browser. This will bring up a login screen

2  The username is your entire email address along with the password you created for that email account..

3  A screen with several choices of Webmail will appear, choose either Horde or SquirrelMail.
available effective 11/1/2005.

4  If you wish to login using a secure connection type in a browser

5. Be sure to empty trash email or purge trash depending on which webmail system you use to prevent using space which will add up on your domains space used. Webmail is not to be used as an email client. Download all email as soon as you are back at your own computer!

Make sure to log out of web mail when you are done. If you do not log out, it may be possible for another user of the computer you are on to access and your email by doing a page back.
