Create and manage email accounts and email forwarding.

To create and manage email accounts and email forwarding in cPanel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your cPanel account. Ensure that you have access to a cPanel-powered server.

  2. Once logged in, locate the "Email" section in the cPanel dashboard. The exact placement may vary depending on your cPanel theme or version.

  3. Within the "Email" section, you will find several tools for managing email accounts and forwarding. The most common tools are "Email Accounts" and "Forwarders."

  4. To create a new email account, click on the "Email Accounts" or "Email" option, depending on your cPanel version. This will take you to the email account management interface.

  5. In the email account management interface, click on the "Create" or "Add Email Account" button.

  6. Enter the necessary information for the email account, including the email address, password, mailbox quota (optional), and any other required details.

  7. Click on the "Create" or "Add Account" button to create the new email account.

  8. To manage existing email accounts, you can view a list of accounts in the email account management interface. From there, you can edit account settings, change passwords, adjust mailbox quotas, and delete accounts as needed.

  16. Additionally, cPanel provides other email management features such as autoresponders, spam filters, and mailing lists. You can explore these options within the "Email" section to customize your email setup further.

It's important to note that the steps and options may vary slightly depending on your cPanel version or the specific configurations of your hosting provider. If you encounter any difficulties or have questions about a particular feature, consult your hosting provider's documentation or contact their support for further assistance.
