    Hi
    I am only a cPanl user, I do not have a VPS or Server that I can set cPanel the way I want it.

    One or two questions I always wanted to ask.

    Why when after you click on Webmail from cPanel/HOME and sends you to the Webmail page you get a link saying:

    Go to Webmail Login - and it AUTO-login for you?

    How do I set the 'Go to Webmail Login' link to be PW protected at least - I would also set a USER name either than the main cPanel user name.

    The reason is, anybody within the HOST company might login in there and 'read' personal emails if left there!

    I really do not understand that.

    One this is for the Technicians to be able to log in cPanel freely [of course] to help you out and Webmail STRUCTURE not be able to read emails.

    That I find a silly problem - I think.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello :)

    Authentication is required for individual email accounts when accessing webmail through cPanel. However, some hosting providers might enable the following option under the "Mail" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings":

    "Mail authentication via domain owner password"

    This will allow mail account authentication using the password of the domain owner’s account.

    Thank you.

    ** Mail authentication via domain owner password is set to OFF !

    Is it possible this option does not work anymore as from WHM 11.46.0 (build 14) ? When logged in to the control panel, we can access all mailboxes via webmail Horde, without password ?

    This is actually by design. Here are some quotes from internal case number 132677 where this has been discussed:

    We are in the process of updating our documentation to better clarify this change.

    Thank you.
