Updated on January 29, 2013

Once you have registered your domain name and created email accounts, the next important thing is to know how to access the email accounts in order to read the emails or compose new emails. The good news is that you will not need to login to cpanel in order to read or compose mails. You can conveniently use webmail for that. The term webmail literally means website mail, World Wide Web mail, or more appropriately, web-based mail. Before I get into details on webmail login, let me first point out that this is not the only way to access emails. You can actually setup an email client on your computer and use it to read your emails. The most commonly used email client is Microsoft’s outlook. The main advantage of accessing emails through webmail is that you will not rely on an application that is installed on your computer. All you need is a computer that is connected to the internet…just like cloud computing!

The webmail login process is not as complex as some people think. Needless to mention, but let me mention anyway, the first thing you need is to have an email address with the password. If you haven’t created an email address, I suggest you refer to my hub on how to create email addresses in cPanel first before you continue reading this.

Once you have your email address and password, to go to your address bar and enter and hit the return key. That will take you to the webmail login screen for your webmail.

Enter your email address in full in the email address text box and your password on the password text box and then hit the login in button. That will redirect you from the webmail login screen and take you to the webmail welcome screen where you will have a choice of three applications to use to read or compose your emails.

Lets take a poll...

Can you use webmail instead of outlook?

These are horde, round cube and squirrel mail respectively. Personally, I find roundcube better but do not take my word for it. Compare the three applications and settle on the one that works best for you. You will notice that on clicking on either one of them, you will be taken to an interface where you can perform mail related functions like read mails, compose new mails, mark as read, mark as unread, spam etc. you can even create a signature so that you do not have to append it manually each time you compose a new email but that is a story for another day!
