How to check email via Horde
Posted by - NA - on 24 August 2010 04:16 PM
Webmail should always be accessed DIRECTLY if you are checking or sending mail. This means that you should be logged in as your email address and NOT as the default (cPanel) user. This is very important as the default account can cause issues to arise (ie: errors when sending mail out or folders created in the wrong location). And, the version of your webmail accessible from the Control Panel is NOT a fully functional version, and will NOT allow you to send messages!
We recommend using Horde to access your email, as it tends to be the most reliable and easiest to use of the three choices.
If you want to try it, follow these steps:
1. Log into webmail via the direct link which would be https://yourdomain.com:2096
Username: Your email address (email@example.com)
Password: Whatever password YOU established when creating the account
2. Select "Read Mail Using Horde" button
3. Click the ‘Log In’ button on the following screen.
You should now see the inbox for that particular email account!
