Webmail Programs

HostGator offers you a choice in webmail programs. You can pick whichever one you are most familiar with or the one you learn to like over time.

  • Horde is a popular choice but does require some configuration to make it behave the way users expect. (For instance, Horde does not use a trash can for your deleted emails.)
  • RoundCube is another popular choice. Again, just pick the program you like.
  • SquirrelMail is an email program that has been decommissioned by cPanel. You will no longer SquirrelMail as an option for webmail programs.

Don't forget, you can switch webmail programs as much as you like, and you will still see all your emails.
