11 Steps to Avoid The worries of Default Webmails for your Website or Client’s.

Have you always had the worries of what webmail to go with for your domain?

As a designer or developer have you always had to access your domain’s email account through either of these options:

http://webmail.domain.com

or

http://www.domain.com/webmail

…after you may have contended with the mix thoughts of which webmail client to enable as default following your email account setup process.

Maybe a snapshot will help trigger those thoughts again:

For me a webmail client appearance has always been a chronic concern that has almost scared me from ever attempting to use the SquirrelMail webmail client though one of the earliest goto option.

Yea to me any solution appealing to my visual sense along with great functions, has always been a catch!

Horde webmail client a nice option I would want to give a 2nd place….

However my most sort after option in the collection has always been Roundcube webmail, which I’ve also observed to be most designers and developers choice.

In recent years I have settled for a game changer option!

The journey started with a free email customized service offered by google, which allows a domain owner to route it’s mail signal through the google server with the allowance for 10 free email accounts, with subsequent accounts going for a monthly dollar token.

I secured some email accounts for my proinsight.com.ng domain, which I have been enjoying great experience till date like I would with the regular gmail privileges.

The Sad Truth is that Google No Longer Offers The Free Email Account Customization!

The Goodnews!

In recent months over 50 clients of mine are happy using an Enterprise Business Class Email Solution, am quite excited to share you this solution, which has been a source of income for my business as well. You know how the twist goes; “..pay N5000 for every Premium Email Account Setup…” a little bargain, then the deal secured!
