How Do I Create Email Accounts in cPanel?

By default, you have no email account set up. The main username may look like it is set up as an email, but you will need to add it as an email account if you wish to use it.

To create an email account:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Look for the Email section, then click Email Accounts.cPanel - Email Accounts section
