Check out our tutorial on how to access cPanel if you haven't logged to it yet.

First, you need to login to cPanel and click on the Email Accounts icon located in the MAIL section.

Next, you will need to type in the new Email account you want to create and fill the necessary information for it.

Here are the fields you need to fill in, in order to create your new account:

  • Email - enter the email address you want to create. Note, that you can choose only from domains, associated with your account - your primary domain and all addon and parked domains.
  • Password - select a strong password for your new email account. The password strength meter will help you make it secure enough.
  • Mailbox Quota - choose the size of the mailbox. Note, that different accounts have different maximum mailbox size. You will see a note with your specific limitation above this field.

Once you're ready, press the Create Account button at the bottom. That's it, in few seconds, your new email account will be created.
