This article describes how to access webmail clients directly. Normally when users log in to webmail, they manually select a client application to use. However, you can set up redirects that enable users to log in to webmail and view an application immediately without having to choose a client.

In the Redirects to text box, type the appropriate URL for the client application that you want to start automatically:
