Hello,

in order to facilitate the webmail access (without login to CPanel)I made
a redirection as follows:

WHM --> Subdomains --> Create a Subdomain -->

webmail.domainname.com

with redirection to

domainname.com:2096/horde/index.php

and it works fine.

But I would like to replace "webmail" with another word

like post or other words, how can I do?

I tried with post.domainname.com but does not work,
where i mistake?

Thanks

Hello Dan,

yes you are right too but (for many reasons) i do not want to give then that CPanelmail control panel.

They just need the most easy link, nothing more.

Also the same way i should follow if i want to create a subdomain like:

subdomain.domainname.com or not?

Thanks

What doesn't work? Does the domain not resolve, does Apache not accept the request, or is the user simply not redirected where you want them to go?

HERE is a post on CPanel's forum that gives a few options. Personally I would recommend installing their own copy of Squirrelmail or something for them.

Thanks Dan but i do not have a registration yet to view the post :(

But...anyway the issue remains because it seems i can create
subdomains only named: WEBMAIL.domainname.com !!

Any other word then WEBMAIL does not work!

Sure it is a stupid question this mine:(
Thanks
