How to access email/webmail from outside of cPanel (recommended)

Although you can access your webmail from within cPanel, you can also log into a HostPapa email account directly from the Internet. The path to use, once your domain name is pointing to our servers, is: http://yourdomain.com/webmail

The username is the email address you are trying to access.

The password is the password set for the above email address.

For example: If you’ve set up “user5” as an email account on “yourdomain.com” for username, enter user5@yourdomain.com, and whatever password you’ve set up.

Please do not use your cPanel username and password to log into webmail. You will be logged into the default email account which is not configured to send email.

Once you have logged in, select Horde, Squirrelmail or RoundCube. These are different e-mail interfaces you can use to create, read and reply to e-mail. They all access email from the same place, so it does not matter which you choose, and you can switch between them freely.

In order to log into webmail, you first must create an email account from the Email Account section of your cPanel. If you have not yet done this, here are some instructions:
