Webmail changes for SiteGround-hosted clients

If you use our webmail and your site is hosted with SiteGround then this is for you.

On June 30, Horde and SquirrelMail, two of the three mail apps available to you if you access your email via webmail will be retired.

This means that the only app available will be Roundcube.

If you use Horde or SquirrelMail, here;s what you need to know:

I use Horde or SquirrelMail. What do I need to do?

You don’t need to do anything as your email and all data will be automatically migrated into Roundcube at the end of June. You can also start using Roundcube immediately. Just choose it as your default webmail, the next time you access the webmail service.

What happens to all my emails and data, contacts etc?

Everything from your Horde or SquirrelMail account will be there in Roundcube.

OK. So how do I use Roundcube?

We’ve put together a guide to help you adapt to the new system. You can find it here: Roundcube user guide.

Why is this happening in the first place?

in short, security reasons. Both Horde and SquirrelMail have been around a while but haven’t been updated in many years. If a security flaw emerged in either, it’s not clear how or if it would be patched. So SiteGround has decided to remove them from their servers.

Is there any change to where I log in to webmail?

No change at all. You can log in at yourdomain.co.uk/webmail (substitute yourdomain.co.uk for your web address).
