    Hi everyone,

    One of my cPanel users wants to create email accounts under her domain and then let users access those accounts thru webmail using only their email username and a password. What URL can they do this at?

    I've tried:

    http://ourdomain.com/cpanel/horde/
    (doesn't work at all)

    http://amrapur.net:2082/horde/
    (requires a cpanel login before you are offered a webmail login)

    I can't believe that a webmail program wouldn't let outside users access their webmail, so I must be missing something. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! That works for me.

    Also, is there some way to make /webmail/ always default straight into Horde so users don't have to log in twice? Double logins look very unprofessional.

    that's normal behavior with horde, but the info should appear automatically

    Plus you could just add onload="document.implogin.submit()" to the body of /usr/local/cpanel/base/horde/imp/login.php

    It just looks unproffesional if you ask me. I would rather they get the nice login page instead of the pop up for authenticication. But I dont want mess up any of the security by like just removing the .htaccess file or whatever is making that pop up.

    When i worked for a large web host, we had webmail.blah setup and userts logged in with full email, i had a set routine that would automatically connect to remote domain @domain.com and then also use full email to authenticate. You could use this server wide, or even company wide. It was a huge hit. But if you plan on doing this and you have more than say 5-10,000 customers, setup a dedicated webmail box. Ill toy around with the new horde and see if i can work something simillar out.

    You said you didn't like the popup box. I gave you three ways to get rid of it.

    Am I missing something here? Why do you have to authenticate through http to get to the webmail login? What if I have 100 email accounts on my domain and I want all 100 people to be able to use Horde? I have to give them my cpanel username and password to get in? That doesn't make any sense.

    I have a Plesk box and they have it setup so that webmail.domain.com takes you right to the Horde login page. Isn't there some generic URL on a CPANEL box that doesn't require HTTP authentication? I must be missing something.

    I do, but it's too far integrated into my site to give out. It's very easy to do if you know a little php.
