Something I’ve always wanted to do is update the screen users see when they visit /webmail and log in on a cPanel server.
Now I know you can choose which webmail clients are available using whm, but I actually wanted to remove, move and change the look of some elements.
First thing I must state is that you need root level access to every folder on the server. Once you’ve logged in the location of the index.html which I was looking for is…
/user/local/cpanel/base/webmail/[TEMPLATE NAME eg x3]
In there you want to edit the file index.html using something like the command line tool vi.
