Add new email accounts in the Cpanel

Clients often ask me how to add new email accounts in the Cpanel.  We offer unlimited accounts and they deserve to have them!  Creating them is easy but with this quick guide it will be easier and you will probably never have to use it again after creating your first account.  The steps are as follows:

Add new email accounts in the Cpanel

1. Login to your cpanel.  You should have kept the login info somewhere safe when you subscribed, but if you didn’t, you can most likely find it in the introduction email we (or your current provider) sent you when you first subscribed to the hosting package.  The URL is http://www.YOUR_WEBSITE_NAME/cpanel ( For example http://www.barcelona-apartments.com/cpanel ).
Once you are in the cpanel click on Email Accounts.

3. Use the password generator to create a secure password. Keep the new password in a safe place. Also set the Mailbox Quota to something according the amount of space you have in your contract. For example if you have 1GB of space contract don’t give your email account more than 200MB. If you are the one managing the site and the email address you dont have to worry about this setting, but you will have to make sure to clean out your inbox every now and then because inbox space counts as much as your website space when determining how much of your allocated storage space is being used.
