    what email that you are trying to access?
    I'm afraid you cannot create an external form like this to login into an email.
    is the email were from your own domain? if yes, it usually comes with email client like squirrelmail or you could set up and email client such as MS Outlook etc

    please elaborate

    I think the default webmail access for cpanel is something like this
    http://domain.com/webmail

    try check the account information email that your webhost sent to you earlier.

    yeah, i agree with robot. And one more thing, squirrel mail use other port to access by browser.Maybe 2095. So, u must make sure, your firewall not block this port

    i think you guys does know what she want. if not mistaken, she need a custom page made by her to let the client sign in, instead of login to www.yourdomain.com/webmail

    i not good in programming, i only hv the concept... you need to have a php file link at the action.
    the php file actually capture the 2 value(username and password) in your page and pass it to the www.yourdomain.com/webmail and sign in automatically

    correct me if i am wrong, i only study before programming, not really know much.

    This is what I thought too.

    Pass the form values to the server-side script, using action="[server-side script]" in the form.

    the /webmail link is only used to enter into the email account but not your cpanel

    SOmetime turn of the firewall for the local PC doesn't mean you can access your webmail@port 2095. If you still can't access the port, it's the network admin job.
    This network setting frequently occur if you are in campus/big org network.

    Why do't you just try to use Outlook Express to fetch the mail automatically. I'm sure it'ld be easier

    i dont think this can be done. i've tried once. accessing the webmail clients of cpanels need to pass the port number. we can put the form action to

    action="http://domainname.com:2095/login/"
    but the problem is, the login script will validate the origin of the login form and only allow scripts from its own URL.

    have this been solved? if its is, how u did it?
