New User Tutorial: Creating E-Mail Addresses in cPanel

Posted on by Patrick Hawkins | Updated:
Reading Time: 2 minutes

One of the perks of having your own domain is the ability to set up e-mail addresses for it. cPanel makes creating a new e-mail address simple.

After you have logged into your cPanel account, find the Mail section and click on the first icon, Email Accounts.

The Email Accounts button is the first icon in the "Mail" section of your cPanel account.

On the next page, fill out the form for new e-mail accounts.

Manage email accounts

  1. Enter the first portion of the e-mail address. If you are trying to create “”, just type in “webmaster”.
  2. Enter the password for the e-mail account, then retype it into the next field. Note that e-mail passwords cannot be recovered, only changed.
  3. cPanel will let you know if your password is secure. If your choice is not secure enough, consider using the supplied Password Generator.
  4. You can set a disk quota for the mail account, or you can remove quotas entirely.
  5. When finished, click Create Account

Although you could use webmail exclusively, your next step will probably be to configure a mail client. On the newly created account, click the More drop down, and then Configure Email Client.

Points to where to find mail client configuration information.

The resulting page will list all of the information you will need when setting up an e-mail client.
