when you setup your email you will recieve all of the information, which you then have to use to set it up on outlook.

What to do in Outlook:

tools ---> email accounts ---> add a new email account ---> click next ---> POP3 ---> click next --->

User Information

Your Name: the name you wish to call yourself
Your Email Address: the email addresses name

Login Information

Username: your email username - aopwebde or another_email_that_you_created@aldrinponce.frih.net
Password: your email password

Server Information

Incoming Mail Server (POP3): mail.frih.net
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): mail.frih.net

---> Click Finish

Follow up question regarding email accounts. Ive made an email accts before using the control panel but can I progmatically (thru Php codes) create an email acct., and is it also possible to retreive these messages without having to go to squirrel mail , like having an access to the emails thru your main site?

Although maybe possible to setup new accounts through php code i doubt it'll be allowed seen as the function will probably be abused ... a lot of users may create an email address which will then turn you into an email provider, which is not allowed here at frihost.

Here is the code that you can use. Place it anywhere to login to your frihost email. I've quickly checked it out and it seems to work, but please test it out before placing it on a page available to everyone *(note - code based on the original squirrelmail login code)*:

Code preview at: www.mezmorizing.net/test/blk3

Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>

<head>

<title>SquirrelMail - Login</title>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
  function squirrelmail_loginpage_onload() {
    document.forms[0].js_autodetect_results.value = '1';
    var textElements = 0;
    for (i = 0; i < document.forms[0].elements.length; i++) {
      if (document.forms[0].elements[i].type == "text" || document.forms[0].elements[i].type == "password") {
        textElements++;
        if (textElements == 1) {
          document.forms[0].elements[i].focus();
          break;
        }
      }
    }
  }
// -->
</script>

<style type="text/css">
<!--
  /* avoid stupid IE6 bug with frames and scrollbars */
  body {
      voice-family: "\"}\"";
      voice-family: inherit;
      width: expression(document.documentElement.clientWidth - 30);
  }
-->
</style>

</head>

<body onload="squirrelmail_loginpage_onload();">

<form action="http://frih.net/squirrelmail/src/redirect.php" method="post">
<center>
Name:
<input type="text" name="login_username" value="" /><br /><br />

Password:
<input type="password" name="secretkey" />
<input type="hidden" name="js_autodetect_results" value="0" />
<input type="hidden" name="just_logged_in" value="1" /><br /><br />
<input type="submit" value="Login" />
</center>
</form>
</body>

</html>


p.s. - in future it may be best to open up a new thread rather than bump a very old one.

Thanks for the code, I'll try it out as soon as I can. I actually didn't notice the date on this forum topic, didnt notice it was way back in 2006. I was just actually looking for an email thread where I might find the answer, and this is as close as I got. Anayway, I wasn't really planning on being an email provider I just wanted to have a way for some of the members of my group to create an email acct. within my site, (maybe just around 30 members). Thanks again.
