How Can I Set Up Webmail to Go Directly to RoundCube?
Webmail is a great feature offered by cPanel. With webmail, as long as you have access to the internet, you can open and manage your emails through your preferred browser. This article discusses how you can set up webmail to access Roundcube directly.
- Log into the webmail. You can get there by going to your-domain.com/webmail. You must log in using a username (the full email address) and password.
- Copy the URL in your address bar. It will look something like this:
http://example.com:2095/3rdparty/roundcube/index.phpNote: You must replace example.com with your domain name in the above examples.
- Once you have the URL you want to use, log into your cPanel.
- In cPanel, set up a subdomain called myemail.your-domain.com (you can do this by clicking on the "subdomains" icon in cPanel). Do NOT use mail.your-domain.com as these particular subdomains are already in use on the server, and attempting to use them as subdomains can result in conflicts.
- After you've set up the subdomain in your cPanel, set up a "redirect" for the subdomain (by clicking on the "subdomains" icon). You must set up the redirect so the subdomain goes to the URL of the webmail program of your choice.
