Dear EE,
I've a joomla site with employee login, the login information will be identical to each employee email account information, is there any way to use joomla login for both login to joomla special area also to access email account through a link to the webmail in the site without the need to insert the login information again.

Thanks.

You could try OSE Webmail Client Plus -

The Plus version has "Joomla! Account Auto Login" which is the functionality you are after.

By this way, joomla will be the interface for the emails, i want only to use link to redirect the user to the hosting email interface but without the need to use the accreditation.

it depends on where you store the credentials. are they in Joomla or do you just use a plugin to interface from the email system to authenticate the user?

you would have to write a plugin to do this. the only plugins are from email to log into Joomla not vice-versa

BTW, if you do store the info in Joomla - what happens when the email credentials change do you have 2 places to update?
