With cPanel’s latest release, they have decided to eliminate SquirrelMail entirely from the cPanel webmail choices leaving Horde and Roundcube as webmail interface options.

According to cPanel, SquirrelMail’s last update was May 30th, 2013, with their last release on July 12, 2011. In that seven years, 4 versions of PHP have reached End of Life, and cPanel had worked with others in the community to maintain SquirrelMail. Unfortunately, recent security patches have significant problems, which forced cPanel to decide to exclude SquirrelMail from their latest release.

While we understand that this is an inconvenience,it is better to use an interface in which updates and patches are regularly released.
