    I'm looking for a way to bypass the C-Panel login when viewing my domain's webmail so I only have to login through the specific webmail's login. Basically my clients are confused by the popup login prompt that comes from going to webmail. But each mail client (I use squirrel mail) has their own login screen that would be less frightening to a user. Is there a way to have the webmail go directly to this login screen instead of having the cPanel login popup? I want to go to mydomain.com/webmail and have the squirrel mail login page load without having any popup box for cPanel login. Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance for any help,
    Brian

    When you visit http://yourdomain.com/webmail , the login prompt that you get is the 'webmail' login prompt and not the 'cPanel' login.
    You can login by using :
    Username -> The complete email address (abc@yourdomain.com)
    Password -> The corresponding password for the email account

    I do not think you can by-pass this.

    You can edit you httpd.conf file to remove the webmail subdomain (and domain.com/webmail) proxy for all accounts under WHM. This will not be persistent and will need to be edited again after running WHM updates.
    Another option is that you could just theme the webmail/cpanel login to be more vanilla and pleasing.

    If you only want to use SquirrelMail Webmail then disable Horde Webmail and RoundCube Webmail from WHM-> Tweak settings. Your users will not see options of Horde and RoundCube webmail while logging to webmail interface.
