    With squirrelmail I can send out e-mails without a problem, but it won't receive any mail. I don't have any other web based e-mail applications installed, so I'm not sure if this is specific to squirrelmail but I can send and receive with no problems by using Outlook Express.

    Any idea what I should check to make sure squirrelmail is setup correctly?

    This is probably a usage problem. Squirrelmail doesn't actually 'receive' email, it uses IMAP to look at the mail file that is sitting on the server.

    Remember that the login for any of the webmails is the email address you are checking. Perhaps you are using the account username? That would not show you any email sent to an email@yourdomain.com.

    That must be it, but what is strange is that I use to be able to get it when just logging in with my username.

    I've never setup a specific e-mail address, I just have my username as the catch-all. Well, I tried setting one up and then I login with that e-mail address and it works to a point. I get past the cPanel login part, but then squirrelmail comes up with "Unknown user or password incorrect."
