How to create email accounts in cPanel

Setting up email accounts for your domain is an easy process, to do this follow these steps:

  1. Login to cpanel (ie http://yourdomain.com.au/cpanel) *replace yourdomain.com.au with your domain name.
  2. Under “Mail”, click the “Email Accounts” icon.
  3. In the top section, enter the email address you would like to setup, followed by a strong password.  You can use the builtin password generator if you like.
  4. Set the mailbox quota.
  5. Click “Create Account”.

Now your account has been setup, you can access email in 2 ways – via webmail, or via email software on your PC, Mac or smartphone.

 

Webmail

Webmail is accessible on any device from http://example.com/webmail – remember to use your domain name here.

Email Software (Outlook, Mail, Thunderbird, etc)

Server: mail.yourdomain.com.au — replace yourdomain.com.au with your domain name

Username: Your email address (ie. user@yourdomain.com.au)

Password: The password you set for the email address

You can setup the account as POP or IMAP – POP will generally download from the server to your device, while IMAP will generally sync between the server and the device keeping the contents the same (great if you want to setup more than one device).
