How do I create e-mail accounts?

To create an email account:

  1. Log into your cPanel
  2. In the Mail section, click Email Accounts
  3. In the Email field, type the name you want and select the domain name from the adjacent drop-down menu
    Note: The email name shadow is reserved and cannot be used for an email address
  4. In the Password fields, type the desired password twice
  5. Make a selection for Mailbox Quota (default is 250mb - you might to change this to unlimited)
  6. Click Create Account

The same steps work for creating email accounts for your primary domain, addon domains and subdomains.

*NOTE: By default you have no email address setup. The main username may look like it is setup as an email, but if you wish to use it, you will need to add it as an email account.
