Webmail email access

There are about 4 ways you can use to access email on the Ready-Set-Go server that hosts your website domain (e.g. domain.com).

[Anywhere in this tutorial where you see "domain.com" you should substitute the domain name from your website -- such as "artsandspirituality.org" or "lancasterfarmfresh.com"]

There are 3 brands of webmail program installed on the server.  They can be accessed at: http://www.domain.com/webmail  (substitute your domain name) or http://host.rsgzone.com/webmail (to bypass the security certificate warning).

The first time you access the site, you will probably get a popup with a warning about the security certificate.  Just proceed by clicking through this popup (host.rsgzone.com is the correct underlying server where RSG sites are located).

You will need to provide your username (use your full email address) and password.

RoundCube, Horde, and Squirrelmail all do basically the same thing.  You can use any of them at any time.  Each is just a different method for looking at the same data. 

There is also a third-party webmail alternative called Mail2Web.  You can log-in at http://www.mail2web.com

You will need to provide your username (use your full email address) and password.

I have not used this extensively, but it comes highly recommended and seems to be our best alternative given the erratic trouble some clients have had with Horde. Unfortunately there is no address book option in mail2web's interface.

There is also a way to setup the very popular GMail program to serve as your webmail client

Which one should you use?

Roundcube is a late comer and seems the most user-friendly and modern in appearance.  At this writing, it included's an address book, but no import/export option.  However, it is still at an early stage in its development and more features are planned/expected in the future.  Please let me know your experience with it.  We have detailed documentation available for RoundCube.

After Roundcube, I would recommend Horde which handles attachments and HTML emails better than SquirrelMail.  

SquirrelMail is a classic webmail option.  It does not use any fancy technologies, so it should work even on older computers with limited memory and/or no Javascript.  While it includes an address book, it does not allow you to import/export the address book.
