How to log into webmail

Once logged into webmail, you will have several options available for the individual user.

Webmail Options

Change Password
Click this to update your password. Of course, you must be logged in first. If you cannot login, then you need a password reset.

Forwarding Options
Click this to forward copies of all incoming email to another email address. If you want to create email aliases or domain forwarding options, you must do that from within cPanel.

Auto Responders
Click this to create an automatic message which replies to all incoming email. It's a simple feature, but does know to not auto-reply multiple times to the same email address within a short period of time.

Configure Mail Client
Click this to see the typical settings that should be used when configuring a mail program like Outlook or Thunderbird.

BoxTrapper
Click this to set up this unique email Spam prevention measure. BoxTrapper will require all incoming email to verify it was sent by a real person, and not a robot. It does this by auto-replying with a verification task (usually it asks the sender to reply or click a link). If they complete the task, then that sender's email address is allowed to send you emails without interference. Otherwise, the emails are saved in BoxTrapper and never delivered to your inbox.

Email Filtering
Click this to create email filters. The filters can detect important emails based on the sender's email address, subject of the email, content of the email, etc. The filters can then mark the email or deliver it to a special folder.

Email Trace
Click this to review email delivery attempts for your account. You can also see the delivery route for a message from your account?s mail server to a remote address.
