Creating an Email Account in cPanel
Before you can use email, you must create the email account in cPanel.
How to Create an Email Account
- Log into cPanel
- Once logged into cpanel, click on the "Email Accounts" located in the Mail section of cPanel:
- That will open a screen so you can create a new email address. You should see the below screenshot.
Fill in the fields, below is a description of what to enter:
Email: This is the name of the account. This will be before the @ symbol in the email address. Password: This is the password you assign to the email account. Password (again): Re-type the password Mailbox Quota: Select the size of the mailbox you want to create.
After entering your information in the fields, click the button labeled "Create Account"
- Once the account has been created, you will see the following screen to verify the account was created.

If you're in the process of transferring to InMotion Hosting from a different hosting provider, you may have emails that you want to copy to this email account you just created. We have a tutorial on how to accomplish that here.

Inmotion needs toubleshooting - I can't log in on Safari but can on Firefox. I restarted Safari but no soap. This started today so it should go away today.

Are you not able to log into cPanel or Webmail? Are you using Mac or Windows? What version of Safari are you running?

I can't acces my parked domains to set up emails in cPanel- only the main domain shows, won't toggle

Thank you for contacting us. I tested your cPanel, and was able to successfully add a Parked domain as a test, and create an email address for the parked domain (I removed the test accounts after testing). In my tests I used the Chrome browser.
We are happy to help you troubleshoot further, but will need some additional information.
What type of browser are you using? Have you tried a different one, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE?
What type of operating system are you using? For example, are you using Windows 10, OSX, Linux, etc?

I just need to edit the email ids of some users.
email@example.com needs to be changed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please advise me how to do the same.

Unfortunately there is no way to change an existing email account like that. However you could remove the email account and re-add it.
