- 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.

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“
