Accessing your webmail via your website address

If your website is resolving to our server, you can access webmail simply by entering your website address and adding /webmail on to to the end of it. If you have an SSL installed on your website address you can use it to access your webmail securely.

1) Type www.yourdomain.com/webmail  (replacing yourdomain.com with your website address) into a web browser of your choosing.

If you wish to access the webmail securely you would so by adding a https:// to the front of your domain name. (eg: https://s5support.com/webmail). If you have an SSL installed you will see the redirection image below. If you do NOT have SSL installed on your domain you will get a SSL certificate mismatch warning. You can accept this warning but to prevent it from occurring again, access the webmail using the server address.

2) You will see a page display information that it is redirecting you to the webmail. Depending on the speed of your connection or your server, this can take up to a minute.

Note: If you are not redirected to a login prompt (pictured below) within a minute or two of seeing the above redirection screen, you may be blocked by a office firewall. If you are on a home computer or were able to access the webmail service previously, please open a chat with our team and we will be happy to work with you to correct this.

Username = Full email address of the address you want to check (eg: [email protected])

Password = Password that was setup when this email address was created. For instructions on how to reset this, click here.
