  • Scroll down to the Manage Account section.
  • Click on the Email Accounts button.
  • Here you can add your required e-mail and password. **
  • Once you have specified the e-mail account and password, set the desired quota and click Create.

Creating an e-mail account using cPanel
:

  • Log in to your cPanel account.
  • From the Email section, select Email Accounts.
  • Here you can add your required e-mail and password. **

A strong password is of the utmost importance. For help on choosing a good password, please have a read through Guidelines for Passwords.
