How To Enable Auto-Login for Webmail in DirectAdmin

When enabled, one will see extra characters (arrow and letter) in the “Login” column when they visit the E-Mail Accounts page of the User Level.

By default this feature is disabled in the directadmin.conf like so:


Use the following command to check:

  /usr/local/directadmin/directadmin c | grep one_click_webmail_login

To enable this feature, run the following commands as the root user via SSH:

  cd /usr/local/directadmin
  ./directadmin set one_click_webmail_login 1 restart
  cd custombuild
  ./build update
  ./build dovecot_conf
  ./build exim_conf
  ./build roundcube



if you do not see the option to automatically log into Webmail, you may not be running a recent version of DirectAdmin. If not, do the following to check:


  cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
  ./build update
  ./build versions_nobold | grep 'update is available.' 

If updates are available for DirectAdmin, run the following to apply those updates:

  ./build update_versions

That’s it! 🙂 If you have any trouble, or are unfamiliar with running commands as the root user via SSH, please open a support ticket with our support team and we’ll be happy to accommodate this request!
