How to use Webmail from within cPanel.

This demo assumes you've already logged in to cPanel.

You can actually log in to webmail without first logging in to cPanel. To do that, simply type the following into your browser: http://www.yourdomain.com/webmail, where yourdomain.com is to be replaced with your actual domain name.

Now let's learn how to use webmail.

In this tutorial, though, we'll access webmail from within cPanel.

1) Click Read Webmail.

Let's create a folder. Enter the new folder name in the box under Create Folder.

Let's go ahead and add an email address to the address book.
