    I am just setting up two servers. One will be used for web hosting using Linux RedHat and cPanel. The other Windows 2008 server will be used just for SmarterMail email. I am trying to figure out best way for our hosting clients to be able to manage email accounts from SmarterMail. What is best way to disable email access in cPanel for our web hosting clients, but provide a link for them to get to the SmarterMail server? Should I just disable all Mail features in cPanel and add a link and icon for the external SmarterMail server?

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Hello Bryan,

    I would suggest removing all mail features as you've noted and then adding an option that will get the user to the other mail interface. The icon would simply result in a redirect to the correct interface for email services.

    Thanks!

    That is what I was thinking. I would use the method on Page 45 here: http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/pub/AllDocumentation/TrainingResources/TrainingSlides08/Branding.pdf to create an icon and external link. I figured I would disable all Mail features, then install this plugin to the Mail section. To bad cPanel does not interface better with SmarterMail like it does with Enkompass. Seems like it would be possible,
