Iphone4: Automatically login to website using safari

I'm quite PC literate but my experience of iPhones is limiited to just a couple of hours.
A friend of mine wants to access his webmail on his iPhone4 with the minimum of interaction .... ideally, touch one icon
http://m.eircom.net/webmail

I got in using safari and he was delighted with the results. Unfortunately, he gets logged out after about 10 minutes of inactivity. (He is never logged out from his PC). I couldn't get the bookmarks to work properly ... it kept sending me to http://www.eircom.net/webmail ... and it wouldn't remember the username or password.

At the moment, the only way he can get in is to painfully type .... m.eircom.net/webmail ..... user name (sometimes remembered by safari) ..... passphrase.

So I'm looking for a one (or 2) touch solution whereby safari will open http://m.eircom.net/webmail and the username and password will be remembered.

Why cant you get the bookmarks to work properly?  In safari, just click the icon with the arrow in the center of the bar at the bottom when you are on the page you want saved, and choose Add Bookmark.  Then, go to the book icon, choose edit, and edit the address of the bookmark you just saved to be exactly what you want.

As for username/pw remembering, some sites do, and some do not.

Start safari and go to the website. Push the icon with arrow at the bottom and choose "Add to homescreen". It will present the option to alter the name of the shortcut and afterwards choose "Add". The icon will appear on the second homescreen page.

As for the username and password, you will have to change the settings of Safari.
Go to Settings --> Safari --> Autofill. Turn on Name/Password. Next time it will remember.

Sorry Peerbolte, I should have asked ......

The "second homescreen" ..... I presume it is just a gesture away on the homescreen .... can you clarify ?

Slip of the finger, I ment the "second screen". Like you said, a gesture away.
Just like every new app will appear in the second screen, unless this one is full, then it will continue filling the third and so on.
