General Email Functionality

Hi. I’m trying to figure out how to add some basic functionality to email like changing fonts, bolding letters etc. The Squirrel Mail doesn’t seem to have this without downloading plugins and inserting code etc. , none of which I have the slightest idea how to do.

Is there an easier way around this?

The best solution is to switch your webmail to roundcube, it has a built in html editor.

In the dreamhost panel -> Mail -> Webmail. “Edit” the domain and check the “Use Roundcube” box and save. This involves a DNS change so it won’t happen instantly.

If you want to take roundcube for a test drive first go to and login with your full email address for the user name.

After logging in the first time select Settings > preferences >composing messages and set use html editor to always.

Thank-you very much for your help!
