ServerFreak would like to officially announce the discontinuation of SquirrelMail as Webmail for all of our Linux hosting clients.
For your information, SquirrelMail was added to cPanel back when webmail first became an option for cPanel users more than a decade ago. It is included as one of the default options for Webmail selection together with Roundcube and Horde until 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
ServerFreak 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.
Please feel free to contact our team even later on in case you need help during the transition period via Helpdesk or drop a mail into email@example.com
