    HI I just got roundcube with my cpanel update.....

    When trying to login to domain.com/webmail i get the cpanel popup login box. I was wondering if there is a way to make /webmail go to roundcubes loign page. (I hate the cpanel popup)

    I am looking for a page where you enter in the users email and password and then you go straight to that users email. Exactly how nutsmail used to work.

    Then upon exit, how do i get to the roundcube logout page rather than the cpanel webmail logout page.

    I see a lot of stuff on installs, but nothing to cover this specific issue. I used to use an ALIAS in httpd.conf when i used nutsmail/squirrelmail. Maybe that is the answer but i cant seem to get any alias to go to the roundcube login page.

    I'm new here, Thank you in advance.

    Note, the initial page presented by the webmail interface provides functionality not available in any of the webmail clients. Keep in mind, not everyone who logs into webmail may want to use a webmail client - they may want to simply manage their server-side mail filtering rules.

    By logging users directly into the webmail client you will be denying your webmail users the following functionality:
    - Change their email password
    - Set up an auto-responder for their email (a.k.a. vacation message)
    - Server-side mail filtering
    - Boxtrapper management
    - Ability to control forwarding of their email (very useful if they have a blackberry)
    - Ability to trace mail delivery routes
    - Ability to automatically configure their mail client.

    Remember, webmail users cannot login to the cPanel interface.

    You didn't bother answering his question... It would be nice if you guys didn't just ignore it and make your own assumptions as to what we 'should' do. We're big boys, we can decide what is good for our users, thanks.

    Thanks for your answer, but I have all that covered, I uses a skin anyway so i font need your login interface, if they want to change their password, i have a flash tutorial showing them how. I don't offer forwarders or auto responders also.

    All I need is a simple login page for my simple clients something that is not a pop up and goes to your round cube selection page. My simple clients dont use the cpanel interface anyway, they call me for all of that.

    All I need is something that after logging in goes directly to the in box, not the cpanel selection page for roundcube, forwarders, etc.

    I'm sure I cant be the only person wanting this. Look at all the skins, they all offer a login page but we cant use them.

    Thanks in advance, Greg.

    maybe I am not clear enough with what I want to do. I would like to offer the roundcube standard login page to login, like they have on their demo or like it looks when you install it youself on an individual domain, not cpanels popup window method. Is this possible?

    The "popup window" is the HTTP Authentication dialogue. You can configure your server to use cookie-based authentication instead. You can do so by going to WHM -> Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings and select the following setting:

    Code:
    Disable Http Authentication for cPanel/WebMail/WHM Logins (forces cookie authentication)
    Be sure to click save at the bottom of that page.

    Note, we use HTTP Authentication by default since it is a more secure method. That's not to say that cookie-based authentication is insecure, it's just not as secure as HTTP Authentication.
