How to create an email account

You can create an email account through your hosting control panel (cPanel). The number of email accounts you have is determined by the hosting plan you are currently on and is shown on the main screen of cPanel when you have logged in.

To create a new email account:

  1. Log into your hosting control panel (cPanel)
  2. Select the Add / Remove E-mail account(s) option from the main screen of cPanel.
  3. Under Add a New Email Account, enter the name of the account, the account's password, and the account's quota (amount of disk space the account can use) in their respective blank fields.
  4. Finally, select the Create button to create the email account.

NOTE: If the account was created successfully, the following will appear (except it will contain the information you provided in the blank fields):

The e-mail account with the login with a quota of 10 megs was successfully created.

Some email clients may not recognise non-standard characters for the account name. If the account is not being created, make sure that all fields contain information before clicking on create.
