WebMail Lite 7 documentation

Install on Plesk Panel

For hosting providers

You can easily install WebMail Lite on Plesk Panel server as a fast and neat replacement or alternative to the built-in webmail client.

It's assumed that you install WebMail Lite to some primary domain (webhosting.com). All your clients will be able to check their Plesk e-mail accounts using a single instance of WebMail Lite (webhosting.com/webmail). To learn more, refer to How to install the product on Plesk Panel server.

Note that "Change password" option is supported out-of-box.

For hosting clients

If your hosting provider has installed WebMail Lite on their server (for example, webhosting.com/webmail), navigate to that URL and enter your e-mail address and password to check your Plesk e-mail account.

When logged in the webmail interface, you can also change your Plesk e-mail account password in Settings area.

How to install the product on Plesk Panel server

If you're a hosting provider and want to install a single instance of WebMail Lite (the instance which will be used by all your clients to check their Plesk e-mail accounts), follow the instructions below:

Update on Plesk Panel v11-12.*:
APS Catalog used in current version already includes a package for WebMail Lite. Thus, steps 1-5 are not required there.

1. Download Plesk Panel Application of WebMail Lite on your local computer. With the download, you'll also be issued a trial license key. Store it for later use (unless you already have a permanent key).

2. In Plesk Panel, navigate to "Tools & Utilites" -> "Application Vault" and click "Uploaded Apps".

3. Click "Upload New App", then click Browse and locate afterlogic-webmail-pro-plesk.zip file on your local computer.

4. Clear "Available to customers" checkbox unless you want your clients to be able to install their own copies of WebMail Lite on their domains.

5. Click Upload to add WebMail Lite into Application Vault.

The WebMail Lite application should now appear in the list of uploaded apps.

6. Navigate to "Hosting Services" -> "Domains".

7. Select the domain where to install WebMail Lite, and click the "Control Panel" link of that domain.

8. In the Control Panel of the domain, click Applications tab, and select "All Available Applications" option.

9. In "Collaboration, E-mail" section, click "AfterLogic WebMail Lite" link, then click Install to start the installation process.

10. Accept the license agreement terms to proceed.

11. The main screen of the installation process appears. Specify the URL your clients will use to access WebMail Lite.

12. (OPTIONAL) Click "Show All Settings" link if you want to configure the default login name for Admin Panel access, database name, etc. However, you can leave all these settings in their default state.

13. Specify the password to access Admin Panel of WebMail Lite. The default login name is "mailadm".

14. Confirm the password for "mailadm".

15. Specify WebMail Lite license key. If you do not have one, you can get it from AfterLogic web site.

16. Click Install. The installation process should then complete in a few moments.

17. WebMail Lite is ready for use. Anybody who has an e-mail account on your Plesk Panel server can now check their e-mail at "Installed at" URL.

18. (OPTIONAL) If you wish to fine-tune WebMail Lite (e.g. change the default skin, language, configure log files, and so on), you can click Admin Panel link, log in as "mailadm", and perform any additional configuration of the product. However, this is completely optional.

NOTE: If you didn't clear "Available to customers" checkbox when adding WebMail Lite into Application Vault, your hosting clients will be able to install their own instances of WebMail Lite onto their domains and manage them independently.
