In this tutorial, we’ll understand how to access webmail in cPanel. However before diving into the step by step process, let’s first understand what exactly cPanel is and what is its function.
cPanel is a Linux based web hosting control panel which helps to manage your web hosting account by providing a graphical interface and various automation tools. With the help of cPanel, even non-technical people can easily manage their web hosting accounts to control various aspects of website and server administration using just the browser.
The process to access WebMail in cPanel is quite simple.
Step 1: Open cPanel for your website.
