This set of features allows you to add and manage email accounts associated with your domain.
cPanel -- > Mail -- > Email Accounts
To add a new email address:
Once the account has been created, you will see a screen presenting the newly created email address, login name, and quota. On this screen you can choose to manage existing accounts, including automatically configuring your desktop mail client for this email account.
Existing addresses are displayed in the table under Current Accounts. Using this table, it is possible to:
To delete an email address:
The quota limit for the address defines the amount of mail (in Megabytes) that can be stored to the mailboxes. Once this limit is exceeded, any incoming mail will be returned to the sender with a message stating that the recipient’s mailbox is full. When the quota is reached, new incoming messages will be stored on the server for a 48-hour period before being deleted. They will not be delivered to your inbox until you delete old emails.
Since a full quota will prevent you from receiving mail, it is important to keep track of quota usage.
To change your mail quota:
A secure password is one that contains no dictionary words and is comprised of both upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols. cPanel comes complete with a password generator for generating a secure password.

Note: This feature is no longer supported. It cannot be found in new versions of cPanel.
A security policy helps cPanel protect your email account from attacks by malicious users by locking out computers that have not been explicitly granted access. You can specify a set of questions to be asked to the user whenever that user attempts to log in through webmail from a computer that is not registered through cPanel. The questions defined in your security policy will also need to be answered in order to recover your password in the event that it is lost.
To register a computer, you can simply answer the questions when logging into webmail, or add the computer’s IP address to the Access IP list using the Manage Access IPs button.
To add an access IP:
Note: This feature should not be used for computers that do not have a fixed IP.
If you would like to define the answers to your security questions, click Update Security Questions and Answers.
To update your security questions and answers:
This feature will automatically configure your email client to access your cPanel email address(es). An email client allows you to access your email account from an application on your computer. Outlook® Express and Apple® Mail are examples of email clients.
Note: You must already have an email client installed on your computer to automatically configure it using cPanel.
To configure your mail client:
When completed properly, your email client should open automatically and log into your email account(s).
You can avoid these bugs by running the latest version of WebKit, the HTML and CSS rendering engine used by Safari. Interacting with WebKit is the same as interacting with Safari.
The WebKit Icon
The Email Accounts page is the only feature in cPanel known to be affected by the bug. It may also be important to note that Wordpress’ RTE requires the same fix.
