View Full Version : Logging into Neomail

10-17-2003, 12:33 PM
Should I be able to log into NeoMail from www.westhost.com and choosing "web mail" under the "members area"? I keep getting invalid user or password. I can log into NeoMail from the link in the site manager (bitebuzzer.com/cgi-bin/plugins/neomail/neomail.pl') and that works.

It works for me! Are you entering your full e-mail address (username@domainname)? Is your account on 2.0 yet?

I'm assuming I'm at 2.0. I just signed up with WestHost 3 days ago. Yes I am using the format username@bitebuzzer.com. Thanks

It is possible that it does not let you be logged in to it at the same time as your POP3/mail account (i.e. if you are checking or downloading mail, it won't let you log in via Webmail). Make sure you are "logged out" (i.e. you have not used it for a couple of minutes, your mail program is closed, etc.) and then try again. If it still does not work, please paste the exact error message you get. And why would you prefer to use WestHost's webmail when you have your own version working perfectly? ;)

A little off the subject, but I find the whole bit about remembering to use "domain.com/plugins/cgi-bin/neomail", no wait, was that "cgi-bin/plugins/"... or... well, its hard to remember and my clients also hate it, so on all the accounts I've created a directory 'webmail' and in there I put an index.html file that simply redirects browsers to the neomail script.
So, now all I need to do is type:
and I have the webmail front end.

Here is the redirect html page:
<title>MyDomain.com Webmail Redirect</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url="/cgi-bin/plugins/neomail/neomail.pl"">
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=/cgi-bin/plugins/neomail/neomail.pl">
&lt;a href="/cgi-bin/plugins/neomail/neomail.pl">Webmail here&lt;/a>
Change 'content="1...' to 'content="0...' for immediate redirects.

HTH :)

Why did you repeat the
&lt;meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url="/cgi-bin/plugins/neomail/neomail.pl"">
&lt;meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=/cgi-bin/plugins/neomail/neomail.pl">
Is that a typo or is it neccassary?

I did more or less the same thing. Except, since I have unlimited subdomains, I thought I'd put them to use and made webmail.mydomain.com ;) It is doing the same thing as jalal: just pointing to a directory where I used a PHP "script" to redirect:

&lt;? header&#40;"Location&#58; http&#58;//mydomain.com/cgi-bin/plugins/neomail/neomail.pl"&#41;; ?>

Shawn: As far as I can tell, it is a typo... I've never had to use two meta refreshes :P

Hi Shawn

I have a stutter... :)

Nah, just joking, some browsers (old ones) like to have the url part quoted within the content parts, so the first line is for old, broken browsers, the second line is for everyone else.

To be honest, I'm not really sure if its necessary these days, but it doesn't hurt.

"Old, broken browsers"... They still make (use) those? :lol:

I just wanted an easy link for my kids to be able to remember/use from school. Thanks Jalal and FZ for the www.mydomain.com/webmail/ and webmail.mydomain.com suggestions. Either will work great. :D
