    I hadn't had my coffee yet, and I was trying to resolve some other problem with Front Page extensions (Cpanel won't let me password protect a directory, it claims front page extensions are installed but they arent) and I accidentally installed Front Page Mail extensions. Apparently this option installs it on all domains.

    Is there any way I can undo this?

    Also, why on earth is there even an option for Front Page at all? I can't imagine anyone even uses that any more? Wasn't it discontinued way back in the 90s? I do not have front page compiled into apache, so i wish these options would go away

    Hello :)

    The following thread should address the second part of your question:

    How to remove FrontPage

    As for the FP Mail Extensions, are you sure it actually made any changes to your accounts?

    Thank you.

    Thanks. I will certainly remove the front page option.

    I have no idea if it made any changes to the accounts. I'm not sure what exactly front page mail extensions are, or what it did, all I know is that WHM said that it installed front page mail extensions for all domains.

    Manually removing the frontpage RPM, and the /usr/local/frontpage directory as indicated in the referenced post should be sufficient enough to make sure frontpage mail extensions are not enabled (it adds .cnf files for domain names in /usr/local/frontpage).

    Thank you.
