    Hi everyone,

    I am busy trying to revamp the entire Webmail portion of the Cpanel. Does anyone know what i need to change in order to prevent the Default username and password box from popping up with "Please enter username and password for webmail at http://www.site.com:2095" etc..
    and rather show people the login page with my own branded and customised html
    Note: (This you can see by pressing ESC when webmail login appears. :confused:
    I'm pretty much sure this has to do with an .htaccess file somewhere but cant seem to find it... :p

    Also, is it possible to make the webmail login to run along the lines of (http://webmail.website.com) as well as (http://www.website.com/webmail) ? :confused:

    One final thing, i'm attempting to install a new webmail client ( I know there isnt support for this from Cpanels side) ;-) (http://www.roundcube.net) :p

    This is a very nice webmail client i think and is (IMHO) better than squirrel mail and horde and such. Has anyone had any experience with this client or installing any other webmail clients and can maybe tell me what to watch out for etc.. :)

    Thanks, ;)

    There is a thread about Roundcube already if you care to do a search. As you say Roundcube is still very much in the Alpha stage and will be quite sometime before it would be considered stable enough for cPanel to include.

    :)

    Have you managed to figure out how to make webmail.[domain-name] to work, instead of [domain-name]/webmail?

    Currently I manually create a subdomains, and point it to the /webmail folder, but I really don't like doing this everytime somone signs up.

    How would one make one global subdomain, and automatically point it to say the /webmail folder?

    Your idea about a rebranded logon page sounds awesome, could you get it working?

    Hey Softdux,

    Nah no luck really. I've managed to install roundcube without much problems. But integrating it into the current webmail and also making it copy into new skeletons has proven a bit complicated for my inexperienced admin skills ;)

    I have gotten a rebranded webpage working with my current setup but it's a bit vague how to modify stuff like that.

    Anyone else got anything?

    I also was looking for answer to almost the same questions. Anyone know how to do this?
