In a previous post I have provided the steps to create an email account in cPanel. Now, let us check the ways to access the email account and manage emails through webmail.
There are two ways to access your emails created through cPanel.
Upon initial access to webmail, you will be asked to choose a default webmail client to access your emails. You can choose one in this phase, or you can choose at a later time by ignoring this request. They are usually Horde, Squirrelmail and Roundcube.
They are all used to manage the email account and we can chose one, depending on the interface and functionality we would like on ur client. I like RoundCube, so for the purpose of this post, I’ll select Roundcube as my default webmail client.
Below is a screenshot of the default Roundcube interface. On the left side, we have the default folders (Inbox, Junk, Sent etc). We can also see that we already have an email in the inbox (since we opted in to receive an email with configuration settings)
Upon opening the message, we receive different options at the top bar and we can choose the necessary option according to our need:
The compose option here would compose a new email. If we’re replying to the email that we received, we would want to use the ‘reply’ option instead.
In order to personalize the email account settings, we will need to access the ‘Settings’ tab at the top right corner, then click on ‘Identities’, then click on ’email address’ and then use the options on the right side. We can use this interface to make changes to the display name (Name that appears on the receiver’s inbox), manage email signatures, etc
That’s the basics of accessing and managing emails. Please comment on the post for any suggestions; or if you require assistance with troubleshooting issues with the same.
