NOTE: I have shared hosting on DH.
This is what I understand :
There's the email frontend and there's the email backend.
Front end is what roundcube and squirrelmail is. It's just a script that shows you a bunch of pages through which you can see/send/write the emails. The front end simply connects to the backend so the user can use email in a user friendly way.
Backend is : DH people have an email server at mail.domain.com for every domain. New addresses can only be created through the panel. The backend cannot be customized in any way. The only way is to get VPS/DPS and setup my own email server (what I'm calling the "backend") as well.
DH offers two types of webmail front ends, squirrelmail and roundcube. Neither of these pre-installed frontends offer any/much customization.
Now here's what I don't get :
-If I disable webmail from the DH panel, is webmail.domain.com now available for my own use ?
-mailboxes.domain.com cannot be disabled(used for my own purposes) as long as I'm using DH's mail server ?
-To use my own custom front end for webmail am I supposed to disable webmail from the DH panel ?[/quote]
What I want:
-My own fully customizable front end.
And I hope I'm using the correct terminology or it's easy to understand what I'm saying.
