This article describes how to install and configure RainLoop Webmail using the Softaculous installer in cPanel.

Installing RainLoop Webmail

You can get RainLoop WebMail up and running on your web site in minutes by using the Softaculous application installer in cPanel.

To install RainLoop Webmail using Softaculous, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
    If you do not know how to log in to your cPanel account, please see this article.
  2. In the SOFTACULOUS APPS INSTALLER section of the cPanel home screen, click Softaculous Apps Installer. The Softaculous installer page appears.
  3. In the Search text box, type rainloop and then press Enter.
    Alternatively, you can use the navigation pane on the left side. To do this, click Mails, and then click RainLoop Webmail.
  4. Click Install. The installation page appears.
  5. In the Choose Protocol list box, select the protocol.
    If you have an SSL certificate installed on your site, select https:// or https://www. If you do not have an SSL certificate installed on your site, select http:// or http://www.
    Because you must send account login information for a webmail application like RainLoop, you should only use SSL connections.
  6. In the Choose Domain list box, select the domain for installation, or accept the default value.
  7. In the In Directory text box, type the directory where you want to install the application, or accept the default value.
    If you want your domain name to go directly to the application, make sure the In Directory text box is blank.
  8. In the Site Name text box, type the site name. The site name appears in the title bar of users' web browsers when they access webmail.
  9. Under IMAP Settings, in the Server Address text box, type your domain name (for example, example.com).
    Alternatively, you can use the server name for your account (for example, mi3-ss20.a2hosting.com). For information about how to determine the server name for your account, please see this article.
  10. In the IMAP Port text box, type 993.
  11. In the Connection Type list box, select SSL/TLS.
  12. Under SMTP Settings, in the Server Address text box, type your domain name (for example, example.com).
    Alternatively, you can use the server name for your account (for example, mi3-ss20.a2hosting.com). For information about how to determine the server name for your account, please see this article.
  13. In the SMTP Port text box, type 465.
  14. In the Connection Type list box, select SSL/TLS.
  15. In the Admin Username text box, type the administrator username.
  16. In the Admin Password text box, type the administrator password.
    Make sure that you choose a strong password! The Softaculous installer provides a ranking for your password's strength, and turns green when the password is strong. Alternatively, you can click the Random Password icon icon next to the Admin Password text box, and Softaculous generates a strong, random password for you.
  17. In the Select Site Language list box, select the language you want users to see when they access webmail.
  18. In the Select Admin Language list box, select the language you want to use for the administration interface.
  19. Click the Advanced Options icon icon to expand Advanced Options.
  20. In the Database Name text box, type the name of the database to create for the application, or accept the default value.
  21. If you do not want to receive e-mail notifications when application updates are available, select the Disable Update Notifications Emails check box.
    A2 Hosting strongly recommends that you receive e-mail notifications when application updates are available. Keeping your site updated helps prevent unauthorized access attempts and data loss.
  22. To automatically update the application when updates are available, select the Auto Upgrade check box.
  23. In the Backup Location list box, you can select a location to store application backups.
  24. In the Automated backups list box, you can select whether or not Softaculous makes periodic backups of your application.
  25. In the Backup Rotation list box, you can select how often Softaculous overwrites the oldest backup file with a new backup file.
  26. To receive site configuration information after the installation is complete, type an e-mail address in the Email installation details to text box.
  27. Review the installation options and settings, and then click Install. When installation is complete, Softaculous provides information about the application's configuration.
