When you create the first email address for a domain (that is configured to be hosted with DreamHost), the system will also set up hostnames for Webmail service.
Webmail is located at:
http://webmail.example.com -or- https://webmail.example.com
Be sure to replace example.com with the actual domain.
It is also accessible using the DreamHost domain:
http://webmail.dreamhost.com -or- https://webmail.dreamhost.com
Webmail is automatically configured to connect to the DreamHost mail server. The only settings you must enter are a mail account username and password to log in.
The security certificate used by Webmail is written for the dreamhost.com domain. If you access Webmail using webmail.example.com (example.com being your personal domain), the certificate's domain will not match your domain. You can avoid any warning or error message from this domain mis-match by accessing Webmail using webmail.dreamhost.com.
You can also accept any certificate mismatch warnings and store that certificate exception through the web browser so the prompt doesn’t come up again through the browser on which it was stored.
Additionally, you may notice that the JUNK folder is not available when viewing over HTTPS. For example, in Chrome the JUNK folder over HTTPS will show a sad face icon at first.
To fix and view the JUNK folder (replace "example" with your domain name):
- Visit https://mailboxes.example.com.
- Accept that cert.
- Log into https://webmail.example.com.
- Accept any other cert that may appear.
The JUNK folder should now be visible in Webmail.
