How to Set Up New Email Accounts in cPanel

Emails accounts are one of the most important things for businesses as they are the primary form of communication for generating and managing leads as well as communicating with staff or co-workers. Your email accounts can take a lot of time to set up, but we will show you how to easily get them set up in cPanel.

Step #1 – Log into cPanel

The first step is logging into cPanel. If you’re not sure how to login to cPanel, make sure you read this post about accessing cPanel. The main things you’ll need are your username, password and the correct login url.

Step #2 – Find the Email Accounts Section

Find Email Accounts in cPanelOnce you’ve logged into cPanel, you will need to find the email accounts section. The easiest way to find it is to use the search feature near the top of cPanel or you can use CTRL+F on Windows (CMD+F on Macintosh). Search for “Email Accounts” and this should take you right to it; we’ve added an image to the post to highlight where it is and what it looks like. When you’ve found it, just click on it and this should take you to a new page.

Step #3 – Adding a New Email Account

So, it’s time to add your new email account, which is quite easy to do. Just take your time and follow the instructions on your screen.

Firstly, you will need to fill in most of the fields. Your first field, labelled “Email”, is the start of your email address i.e. info@, mail@ or even whatever your name@.

We would advise using the same domain as your website, so it’s easier for your customers or users to remember. For example, our website is on, so all of our address end with as well.

Next, you will need to type in your password for the email account. You should use strong passwords, so your password will need to pass the password strength test before the password can be set. If you want a strong password quickly, use the provided “Password Generator” button. Also, you will need to type the password twice to confirm your chosen password.

Finally, you will need to determine your mailbox quota. If you’re not sure what this is, please leave it as the default. Your mailbox quota is how much storage each of your email accounts have, which can be set to infinite by selecting “Unlimited”.  You could end up using more disk space than expected, if you choose to use an unlimited quota, so we would recommend to always have a limit.

Step #4 – Confirm Your Settings
