How do I create email accounts in cPanel?

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article


The same steps work for your primary, addon, and subdomains.

To create an email account:
  1. Login to cPanel and click Email Accounts.
  2. Fill in the name you want and select the domain name from the drop-down.
  3. Type the desired password twice.
  4. Change the quota if you want.
  5. Click Create.

*NOTE: By default you have no email address setup. The main username may look like it is setup as an email, but if you wish to use it, you will need to add it as an email account.

You cannot create emails with a script or SSH.

The email name "shadow" is reserved, and cannot be used for an email address.
