How to Check and Send Emails Using Webmail

To access the Webmail feature on Todhost server, there are two routes that can be taken which generally applies to every web hosting environment using the cPanel framework. We will look at these two routes in some detail using a step-by-step approach:

From within Cpanel:

1. Login to Cpanel by going to http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel (replace www.yourdomain.com with your actual domain name). You will be be promted to authenticate with your username and password. Your login details to control panel should have been contained in the account welcome email or "new account information" you received when your web hosting account was created. Once you successfully login, then proceed to the next step. If you are unable to find the information, you can always rest your cPanel password from the Todhost client area.

2. Click on the "email" icon. This will display a list of all the emails you have setup on your account. In this window, you can also create new emails if you wish.

3. At the extreme right, you will find the "more" button. Click on it and click "access webmail". This takes you to where you choose the options with which you will access your emails. You have the Horde and Roundcube  Squirrel mail has been depreciated on latest cPanel servers and is no longer supported on Todhost. Horde is recommended by us. Anyone of them will lead you to your email list. You will see also, options to create emails, thrash and so on.

Webmail clients

If you login to your webmail through the Webmail icon on your cPanel main page, you will be logged in with the default system email account.

Important Please do not use the default email account, because very often emails send from the system email accounts are going to the Junk folders.

In order to use your email you have to create another email account like yourname@yourdomainname.com

To login to one of your e-mail accounts from your cPanel, you should go to Email Accounts and then click the more button and then you click the "Access Webmail" link next to the account you wish to access. The recent cPanel upgrades do not reqquire password authentication to login to webmail when you access through the account control panel.
