How to Use Webmail

Webmail offers you the opportunity to access your emails from any computer on the internet via a web browser.

In cPanel, three webmail programs are available and you can choose the one that you find suits you best. You can even flip between programs as much as you like, you will still get to access all of your emails.


The first step is to log into your cPanel account. If you are unsure on how to do this, please view the following help article - 'How to log into cPanel'.


Once you have successfully logged in, either type email into the search box or scroll down to the 'Email' section as per the below. Select the first option shown 'Email Accounts'.


Scroll down to see the available email accounts that you have. Against the email account that you would like to access, choose the option 'Access Webmail'.


You can now proceed and choose the 'Go to Secure Webmail Login' option in the centre of the view.


cPanel offers three available webmail applications. In this example, we have opted for 'SquirrelMail'. Choose that application to continue.


If it is your first time using 'SquirrelMail', you may be asked to complete your name and address plus some other options. Recipients will see your name so it it important to complete that option. You should find that the email address is already completed. Select 'Submit' to continue.


SquirrelMail offers typical options that you've experienced with most email clients. Down the left are options to access the Inbox, Drafts, Sent and Trash. To create a new message, choose 'Compose' at the top. The rest of the options should be famailiar to you such as writing who the email is 'To', the 'Subject' and so forth.


You now know how to use webmail and you can now send new emails and monitor any received emails.
