Webmail aka SquirrelMail
Posted by SITEWORKS SYS on 17 November 2005 10:22 PM

Each account has its own webmail program installed that can be configured as you wish. However, PHP must be installed at your domain first. This is done by logging in at your control panel (http://yourdomain/cgi-bin/plusmail) and choosing FREE SCRIPTS, then choosing PHP. Once installed, use your browser and go to: http://yourdomain.com/webmail (replace with your actual domain name)

You will see a login screen similar to the one below.

For NAME, enter the username. If for your main POP box, enter your domain name WITHOUT the extension (.com, etc) or for a different POP box, enter that user's name. Then, enter the corresponding password for the box you wish to check.

Once logged in, you can change your preferences and settings, by choosing OPTIONS and following the onscreen instructions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you primarily use webmail to read and manage mails, you should create additional folders and move mails out of the INBOX and into the folders. This will keep the inbox clear for additional new incoming mails. These webmail folders do count towards your account's storage limit.

For complete details of the SquirrelMail program, please see the developer's site at http://www.squirrelmail.org/.
