How to log into webmail

LFC Hosting offers a powerful webmail interface that you can use to check your mail from anywhere. In this article, you will learn how to log into webmail and about some of the options you will see.

What is my login details?

You will be asked for a username and password. The username will be your full email address (all lowercase). The password will be your email address password.

Note! Before you attempt to log into webmail Be sure that you have first a stored email address with password.

What is Webmail?

There are several ways you can check your email. For example, you can setup a desktop email client such as Microsoft Outlook, Mac Mail or web-based clients such as Gmail to check your email. You can also check your email from your phone, such as an iPhone or an Android phone.

Like the previous examples, webmail is another tool you can use to send and receive email. Webmail is different because you can access it using a web browser. It doesn't require you to setup the software. You can simply log into webmail and begin to use it.

Steps for logging into webmail

The steps below will show you how to login to webmail. In this example, we are assuming the email address you want to check is user@example.com

  1. Visit http://webmail.lfchosting.com or http://webmail.domain.com 

    Be sure to replace domain.com with your actual domain name.

  2. Enter your username and password

    User Name: Enter your full email address, all lower case
    Password: Enter your email address' password

  3. Choose which webmail client you would like to log into. Click on one of the two webmail clients and get started using your email!

Troubleshooting Webmail Problems:

I'm am not prompted for a username / password

If you are not asked to enter a username and password when visiting http://webmail.domain.com (your domain) Please instead try going to http://webmail.lfchosting.comThis issue is usually caused by a firewall within your network blocking the webmail ports of 2095 and 2096. Using webmail.example.com allows you to access webmail over port 80, the normal port used for web traffic.

I forgot my password

If you forgot your email address' password, the easiest solution is to reset your email address password within the control panel and then try to log into webmail again.

I Don't Know whether I should click on SquirrelMail or Roundcube!

When logging into webmail, you'll be presented with three options: Roundcube, and SquirrelMail. These three options are different webmail clients that can be used for sending and reading email. All of them show you your email, however each of them has their own look & feel as well as their own unique features.

The 2 available Webmail Clients
SquirrelMail This is the older of the two and has limited features, however this allows you to quickly read and respond to email
Roundcube Is the new kid on block, just recently introduced. It has a very clean look and feel to it, similar to a desktop client such as Mac Mail our Outlook
