    Hi there everyone, well I'm new using CPanel and WHM and I'm starting a web hosting business, so I like to know if is possible to personalize the Webmail login and singout pages.
    I'm using Horde as a default and only option to my hosting packages, I mean only because I remove SQuirrelMail and RoundCube Webmail options from the WHM for almost all the hosting accounts, so my clients has only the Horde webmail option to read his email but I like to personalize the Webmail login and singout pages according with the website design.
    I really appreciate all your information and support.

    Thanks in advance,

    You may be able to do this without modifying anything with the webmail interface.

    Change the "Logout URL" setting in WHM -> Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings to redirect your users to a specific URL upon logging out. Many of our customers use this to re-enforce their branding.

    By webmail login page, do you mean the page where you see the Horde icon to click on it?

    Hi and first thanks for your quick answer.
    So about the singout page is ok the solution, so now when I mean login page I mean the seccion where the user inputs his username and password previous to the cpanel/webmail/horde interface.
    When you enter a webmail address from a domain like domain.com/webamil a window appears asking for user name and password and if you cancel this windows another page appears with the option for username and password, so I like to change this option to one page that match with the rest of the website design with the option for enter username and password and remove that windows at webmail address asking for username/password and when you enter the domain's web address the matching page shows up, I hope I can explain my self.

    I really appreciate all your information and support.

    Thanks in advance,

    One thing I usually recommend is to style the user's cPanel interface. Modifications to that user's cPanel style will propagate to the webmail users owned by that cPanel user.

    To disable the HTTP Authentication dialog, simply disable HTTP authentication via Tweak Settings. Note, this will force cPanel/WHM to use cookie authentication instead which is less secure.

    If you find that these modifications are not sufficient, you could create a custom webmail theme which isn't hard - but typically not recommended. Let me know if you wish to pursue that option.

    Hi again, well it looks like what I'm looking for, so I gona test some options and I'll back to comment.
    I'm not interested to create a Webmail Theme because I like to personalize every webmail access to every client domain, so then I like to match the webmail entrance with the client website design.

    I really appreciate all your information and support.

    Thanks in advance,

    The modified Cpanel interface is not propagating to the webmail login page.

    Can you advise how we can create a customized webmail theme?
