Accessing your emails using RoundCube

When you set up your domain email accounts with Doteasy, you are provided webmail access to your email accounts and if you are on the cPanel mail platform, you have a choice between two webmail applications: Horde and RoundCube.

In this article, we will take a look at the RoundCube webmail application. We will show you how to login to your webmail account as well as give you a brief tour of the features included on the RoundCube webmail interface.

What is RoundCube?

RoundCube is a browser-based email application that allows you to read, send and organize your emails. While it doesn’t come with as many advanced productivity tools and features as Horde (ie. calendar, notes and task list), it offers a more user-friendly interface.
