    I've seen this question answered two different ways here, so I thought I'd ask again. Does CPanel make you log in to an email account with your full email address even if the domain has a dedicated IP? If so does anyone have a workaround for non-webmail based clients?

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, it does require you to use the correct format. That's how cPanel virtual POP3 accounts work. AFAIK, there's no way to work around the requirement.

    If that is the case then what is the point of having a dedicated IP for a domain? As far as a web panel is concerned, the only thing you can't do with a shared IP is have your own namespace for email accounts. (except for maybe domain wildcards)

    Dedicated IP's are required for SSL certs as well. Generally that is one of the only reasons a dedicated IP is required.
