Email management within cPanel gives a lot of tools to customers who want to host their own email. Account creation, deletion, forwarding, and access can all be done within the email control panel.

cPanel Email Client Configuration

Email Accounts

When it comes to email, this tool is your one-stop-shop. Create new email accounts, modify passwords, set mailbox size limits, access Webmail, configure email clients, delete accounts, and more.


Email Forwarders

Set up email forwarders and save time by routing different email accounts into one email account for review.



Access your cPanel email server from any computer at any time. With an internet connection and browser access, you can view, delete, and reply to emails at your convenience.


MX Entry Modification

Set up a custom mail exchanger for your domain that points to your cPanel email server. Use the MX control panel to route or back up the mail exchanger.



Quickly enable autoresponders for extended time away from internet access, like when you’re on vacation.


Account Level Filtering

Set filters and save time by having emails automatically routed to specified destinations.


User Level Filtering

Similar to account level filtering, allow individual users to set their own filters.


Mail Delivery Route

View the path your email takes from a local server to a remote email address. This tool is helpful for troubleshooting issues.


Import Addresses/Forwarders

Manual creation of email accounts or email forwarders can be a hassle. The cPanel Address Importer feature makes these tasks a breeze. Email lists and email forwarder information can be imported by either CSV or XLS format, making future account modifications easy and quick.



Spam can be a constant unwelcome annoyance, but with SpamAssassin email filtering is automatic. Enable auto-deletion, configure whitelists and blacklists, set score ratings on filters, and more.


Default Address

Default Address routes email sent to a non-existing email address to a specified email. This is useful if an email address is constantly misspelled. Instead of losing the email, it will get routed and placed in a specific inbox.


Email Authentication

Email authentication helps keep your emails safe by preventing others from sending spam from your email address.
