    I've been using WHM/CPanel for years.

    All of my clients understand and are comfortable with Cpanel, it's an administrative tool.

    Webmail is THE single most important user experience for their users.

    webmail.domain.com dammit, that's what I NEED to look professional. No :2095/blahblah!@#$%&

    WEBMAIL, clean professional looking, selling point, end user experience.

    Additionally TheirDomain.com/webmail will bounce them into webmail by default.

    Show me how

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have too many users(1000's less than a lot here, but too many for me in this situation) to start playing with those settings. I've been pursuing this for over 2 years. I've installed CpanelProxy and bought SquirrelMail skins from both Nutsmail(Good) and Razorskins(Better).

    Neither I or either of them have been able to figure out webmail.mydomains.com. Please provide more direct instructions.

    Those setting look interesting, but if you can show me how to do it, that would be the very first example I have found on the entire web.

    I'll try...

    Always redirect users to ssl... | Check this box. Forces a secure login (https) Suggested, IMHO. cpanelproxy might then be needed for some users in some situations with this enabled.

    When visiting /cpanel or /whm or /webmail WITHOUT SSL... | Check, Original Domain Name. This sends user to theirdomain.com/cpanel instead of your.servername.com This one is easier for user to remember that your.servername.com

    When visiting /cpanel or /whm or /webmail with SSL... | Check, Original Domain Name. Same as above, depending on the first setting.

    Redirect user to the following URL upon logout... In this one add your support site URL. (or leave empty if you like) When they logout, this sends user to your support site.

    Downside to the suggested settings above? None really. But if you change these, some users will not be able to figure out how to get to their cPanel. Thier old bookmark might not work. They'll contact you and say WTF? And you'll reply "we've made it easier for you now to simply go to yourdomain.com/cpanel/ for cPanel. And yourdomain.com/webmail/ for webmail."

    They will smile and say stuff like this actual quote from one of mine:

    About your comment:

    That setting is in the Mail settings, same page, Mail section.

    Add the mail. prefix for mailman urls (ie http://mail.domain.com/mailman)

    And as it states, is for mailman mailing lists page.

    But don't take any of these instructions as factual from me, read the manual.
