In the DirectAdmin environment, each mail account that you create will automatically
have certain mailboxes:
INBOX INBOX.Drafts INBOX.Sent INBOX.Trash spamTo access any of these, follow the "Webmail: Squirrelmail" link near the middle of the DirectAdmin main menu. When you see a login screen, log in using the name and password for the mail account that you wish to access. E.g., the login name might be firstname.lastname@example.org.
