I'm trying to simplify webmail access for my users, I'm looking for the direct link to the squirrel webmail page, trying to bypass the page that gives the choice of Horde and Squirrel. I don't want users messing with the config options that are available on that page. anyone?

http://yourdomain.com:2095/3rdparty/squirrelmail/src/webmail.php

You could then create a sub-domain like email.yourdomain.com that forwards to that url. (note: you cannot use mail.yourdomain.com. It is reserved.)

I am trying to make this work as a link from an employee webpage, I found the very helpful bit of code here that logs users into the main webmail page showing Horde and Squirrel. I was hoping to modify this to give access directly to Squirrel, bypassing the main webmail page. Any thoughts on how that can be done?
Or alternatively is there a way to customize that main webmail page?

<html>
<head>
<title>Webmail Login</title>
</head>
<body>

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="0">
<tr valign="top">
<td>
<center>
<h1><font size="5" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
WebMail Login</font></h1>
<table class="leger3" border="2"><tr><td>
<form action="http://mywebsite.com:2095/login/" method="POST">
<table>
<tr><td>Username</td>

<td><input type="text" name="user" size="16"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Password</td><td><input type="password" name="pass" size="16">
</td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><div align="right">
<input type="submit" value="Login">
</div></td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2"><div align="left">
<b>Note: Your Username is usually your email address.</b></div></td></tr>
</table></form>
</td></tr></table>

</body>
</html>

I think the only way to do this is to install your own web mail client.

You can get the direct link to squirrelmail if you set a link to:

http://mail.(your domain name).(your domain extension):2095/3rdparty/squirrelmail/src/login.php

When you call this link, a popup window will emerge asking you for username and password. Here, your users should input their info and they will be directed to squirrel.

If you make a link to webmail, it will not work properly, you will get an error message from squirrelmail.

I know this works because that is how I open my webmail account, rather than going through cPanel.
