Announcement - Deprecate of SquirrelMail

Dear clients,

****Only Linux hosting clients that use SquirrelMail as Webmail will be affected****

After  a decade of exciting and memorable stint with SquirrelMail, it's time  to say goodbye to our beloved bundled webmail application: SquirrelMail.

SquirrelMail was added to cPanel back when webmail first became an option for cPanel.

It’s the default Webmail selection for all cPanel users together with Roundcube and Horde till now.

Why SquirrelMail is being removed?

SquirrelMail’s last update was May 30th, 2013, with their last release on July 12, 2011.

The  recent security patches cause cPanel to ship SquirrelMail with known  security flaws and they decide to deprecate the support of it in future  by removing SquirrelMail at WebMail option for new installations of  cPanel & WHM in version 76.


Custom Webmail Applications is not supported in shared hosting environment.

Clients  that wish to use SquirrelMail in future may consider VPS/Dedicated  servers that allow this custom installation by contacting our Sales  department: [email protected]

Exabytes will not  provide any support or updating for an unmaintained application and it will be the server administrator’s responsibility to keep SquirrelMail up to date if updates are released.

Support Team,
