We’re thrilled to unveil one of our most highly-requested features: Webmail, a professional business email service tailored for agencies and resellers that seamlessly integrates with WPMU DEV’s all-in-one WordPress management platform.

“IMAP is crucial to how we work”

MatthewWPMU DEV Member

More and more members have been telling us that they need:

  • A solution that doesn’t solely depend on third-party email clients such as Gmail.
  • The ability to synchronize, administer, and access email across various devices using IMAP.
  • User-friendly business email for their clients with a quick and easy setup.
  • An alternative to managing their own email server and dealing with all the intricacies and expenses involved.

When our members speak, we listen!

We’re happy to announce that we have met these requirements and we’re excited to finally deliver Webmail, the IMAP-based email hosting solution our members have asked for … all easily managed from your Hub!

Now you can finally give your clients professional business email without relying on the limitations of POP3 email, third-party platforms, or complex and costly workarounds.

Read on to learn all about Webmail:

Standalone Email That Truly Stands Out

Being IMAP-based means our Webmail provides greater flexibility in email account creation.

Each email account boasts an impressive array of features:

  • 5GB of storage for every inbox.
  • Complimentary 10 email forwarding and 10 email aliases.
  • Robust spam and virus protection (including smart filtering, single sign-on, password protection, and 2FA).
  • Use of your own domain.
  • Modern & user-friendly email client with intuitive and feature-rich mailbox.
  • Fast and easy IMAP configuration with all popular mail clients and WordPress SMTP plugins.
  • Mobile-friendly, secure, ad-free webmail.
  • One-click webmail login.
  • Vacation autoresponder, professional signature, calendar integration, contact management, and more.
  • Support for maximum file attachment size of 27MB.
  • Unlimited mobile devices and IMAP connections.
  • Auto-sync across all devices.

And that’s just for starters!

Connect to Popular 3rd-Party Apps

Webmail can easily connect to 3rd-party apps (e.g. Apple Mail, Gmail, MS Outlook, Zoho, and many others) via IMAP configuration. Even if your clients aren’t tech-savvy, they should have no problem using their favorite email apps.

Easily connect your email accounts to third-party apps.

However, Webmail does not require any third-party app to work, and our own integrated email client includes all of the essential mailbox features your clients need to effortlessly and conveniently manage their email.

Give Clients More Control

With Webmail, everything your clients need to access and manage their emails is included right out of the box, and you can create professional business emails for them no matter where their domain is hosted.

Webmail lets you set up email accounts on any domain you own or manage, whether it’s a root domain like mydomain.com or a subdomain such as store.mydomain.com.

It also doesn’t matter if the domain is directly associated with a site in your Hub or not.

Webmail lets you create email accounts from a domain managed in the Hub, or from a domain managed elsewhere.

Give Clients More Freedom

Unlike POP email, which doesn’t sync across devices, our IMAP Webmail lets your clients access their latest email activity no matter where they check it or which device they prefer to use…phones, laptops, tablets, even their smartwatch!

Additionally, Webmail includes a powerful user-friendly mailbox that clients can log into from anywhere, on any device, to read and send emails.

Every Webmail account comes with a comprehensive and user-friendly inbox that can be accessed from any device…even directly from their web browser!

Webmail is Affordably-Priced

Each business email account (e.g. [email protected]), is considered an individual account and is available at an affordable price of just $1/month.

Each IMAP email account you create will be billed as a separate paid add-on, including 5GB of email storage.

Resell Webmail Under Your Own Brand

We’re currently working on bringing full auto-provisioning of emails to our Reseller platform. Until this feature is released, members can manually resell emails to clients and bill them using our Clients & Billing tool.

Full Reseller integration with Webmail means you will soon have access to all of Reseller’s features under one roof.

This includes:

  • White label hosting, domains, client billing, and more.
  • Auto-connect emails to client domains for easy reselling (coming soon!)
  • DNS management with quick and simple DNS verification for emails and domains.
  • 24/7 Expert support
  • Anytime priority email support for you and your clients.
