    My entire site is hosted on the WHM / cPanel platform, but how do I redirect when I type "myemail@domain.com" to just goto the webmail page?

    Normally, a user could visit: http://domain.com/webmail (or :2096) but I wish to skip step, auto-fill username and just prompt password input.

    Firefox calls it awesome bar
    IE / Chrome calls is address bar

    Hello,

    There are no native features in cPanel/WHM that will automatically redirect users who enter an email address in the browser's address bar to the Webmail service. You can read more about RFC compliance with reserved characters in the address bar at:

    http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1738.txt

    Thank you.

    Your basically saying that no browsers support this because of bad usability or complaints or something like that?

    Thanks for this link, I'm not sure if I'll read it all but I'm gonna start...

    Is this something that is controlled server side, and that I can just create redirect rule?

    Hello,

    It's a reserved character. It doesn't mean you can't use it in an address bar of a browser, however the particular URL you want to use is not supported in cPanel/WHM.

    Thank you.
