    Why is it needed to enter the main password first before you are able to check your mails? There is a virtual host which belongs to a guy who has the right to use the control panel and therefore the main password for it. But all the other users who want to check webmail, they can't because this would mean that they would need cpanel access.

    Even if you use a direct link, first you have to enter the cpanel login/password.

    Example:

    I want to check webmail and point my brower to:
    http://www.domain.com:2095/horde/index.php

    Then I have to authentificate myself using the cpanel login/password.

    Now a page shows up where I login to the actual email account.

    How to let people check webmail without giving them access to the cpanel?

    Thanks
    Alex

    Actually, you just enter your e-mail username and password. It's a pain in the butt to have to enter it twice, but you don't need the cpanel password.

    Another option is to install a global version of squirrelmail.

    me = stupid
    I tried that, of course, but not with the @mydomain.com part in the user name :/

    It works now.

    Thanks!
