    Hello,

    I'm looking to disable all browser access to email for all accounts/websites, known as cPanel Webmail.

    I'm not looking to redirect webmail.domain.com or domain.com/webmail as this has already been done. I would like to disable access via browsing to domain.com:2096

    Thanks in advance

    Also, I wanted to note that I have already unchecked the "Webmail" option from Feature Manager.

    Rather than stopping the service, try this.

    In Host Access Control, add an entry to block access.

    In the first box type WEBMAILD,
    In the second box type ALL
    In the last box type DENY.

    You could also narrow access to specific IP's only, using the same method.
    Just make sure that the deny entries are last, as these would take precident over the allow entries

    the idea presented by @keat63 would be the best one to block the ability to browse on any of the webmail ports 2095/2096 alternatively you could also block these ports but Host Access control essentially does this for you.
