How to log in to webmail

Webmail is an online email service that you can access with a web browser (Google, Safari, Firefox, Opera, etc.). Once you've created an email account in cPanel you can jump straight into webmail and start sending and receiving emails.

  1. Log in to cPanel
  2. Click Email Accounts
  3. Click Check Email, next to the email account you want to log in to
