Then just enter the email name that you want to use for this particular domain name. And then, of course, you need to put in your password twice. So if you do not have an idea of how to create a password, you can always use the password generator; click on Generate Password, and that actually gives you a password that you can use.

So I’m going paste the password in both the places…okay? And finally, I need to select my mailbox quota. Now, since this is your own account, and this is your own cPanel account, you can actually set a higher quota if you want; or you can stick to the 250 MB quota by default created by cPanel. And then I’m just gonna click on Create Account.

Okay, so it says here that support@myactualurl.com has been created. And if I scroll down, I’ll be able to see the new email address that I’ve created; my usage for this email address; and I can also change the password if I want to; and change the quota.

If you plan to access this new email address using a PC client, for example, Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook, make sure you get the configuration settings. You can do that by clicking on More, and click on Configure Email Client.

And now, cPanel will give you the configuration settings for all kinds of applications. For example, Microsoft Outlook, Mac Mail, etc. So just find the one that you want to use, and click on that. But you can also see the manual settings down here that you can use with your email software.

So that’s how easy it is to create new email accounts in cPanel.

How To Check Your Webmail In cPanel

here I’m going to show you how to check your emails using the webmail function in cPanel. Before you use this feature, of course, you need to have first created at least one email account in cPanel.

To access your webmail, just click on the webmail link. Then click on Go to Webmail Login.

Your cPanel account may come with just one webmail service or several webmail services, as you see here. But in my opinion, almost all the webmail services provided by cPanel are quite similar. So you just need to select one that you want to use. And if you want to select this email service by default, the next time you access webmail, you can just click on Enable AutoLoad.

So for now, I’m going to click on Read Mail Using Horde. And then I can select the language, and click on Log in. Now, I am logged in to my webmail account, and I can see that I have four mails, so I can actually click on the Inbox link to read my emails that I have received. If I want to send a new email message, I can just click on New Message, and here, I can compose the actual message. I just need to enter the email address that I want to send to, and put in the text content here, or if I want to send the email in HTML, I can click on Switch to HTML Composition.
