How to Choose a Bluehost Webmail Client

If you’ve already chosen a default webmail application, you should already be logged in. But if you haven’t selected one yet you can choose one of the three options for webmail that are built into your Bluehost account. Each individual email user can also choose which webmail client they want to use: Roundcube, Horde, or SquirrelMail.


Roundcube is the most popular Bluehost webmail client. It has the look and feel you would expect from an email application but is available inside a browser. You can import and use an address book and use IMAP folders with a drag-and-drop organization. When composing emails, you can set up preset responses to save time, and write with spell check in a rich text HTML composer.


Horde is more than just a Bluehost webmail client. It’s a collection of simple online apps for collaboration including webmail, calendar, notes, and tasks. These extra features do have some limits, however. For example, the collaborative features only work inside Horde; so to share a calendar entry or a note, the person you are sharing it with would also need to use Horde.


SquirrelMail is just perfect simplicity. While it lacks many of the features offered by Roundcube and Horde, SquirrelMail offers a simple, user-friendly interface with more customization possibilities than other Bluehost webmail options.

Click on the Read Mail Using link under the client of your choice to log in. Or, if you already know which client you want to use by default, click Enable AutoLoad.
