Everything you'll need to manage email on your website is in this section:

cPanel Email Section


Apps in red are of particular importance in the ongoing administration of your
web hosting. The listed order is the order that appears in cPanel.

Email Accounts
Use the Email Accounts interface to manage the email account for your domains.
Use the Forwarders interface to allow you to forward any incoming email from one address to another. For example, if your cPanel account owns both [email protected] and [email protected], you could forward [email protected] to [email protected] and eliminate the need to check both accounts.
Email Routing
Use the Email Routing interface to route a domain's incoming mail to a specific server.
Use the Autoresponders interface to send automated emails to anyone who sends mail to a specific email account. You may wish to use this feature if, for example, you are on vacation, are unavailable, or have a generic message that you wish to send from a support email address.
Default Address
Use the Default Address interface to set up a default address, or catch-all address, that receives any mail that users send to an invalid email address for the domain.
Mailing Lists
Use the Mailing Lists interface to create a single email address to send email to multiple email addresses.
Track Delivery
Use the Track Delivery interface to review email delivery attempts. You can also use this feature to trace an email's delivery route. For example, use this feature if you need to locate problems with email delivery.
Global Email Filters
Use the Global Email Filters interface to create email filters for all of your cPanel account's email accounts.
Email Filters
Use the Email Filters interface to create email filters for a specific email address. You can use this feature to avoid spam, redirect mail, or pipe messages to a program.
Email Deliverability
Use the Email Deliverability interface to identify problems with DKIM, SPF, and PTR records. These records make other mail servers more likely to accept emails that your users send.
Address Importer
Use the Address Importer interface to import files in order to create multiple email addresses or forwarders simultaneously.
Spam Filters
Use the Spam Filters interface to configure Apache SpamAssassin™, an anti-spam platform with the ability to filter, identify, classify, and block unsolicited bulk emails.
Use the Encryption interface to configure GnuPG. GnuPG is a publicly available encryption scheme that uses the public key approach. With GnuPG, messages use a public key to encrypt messages that only a private key can decrypt.
Box Trapper
Use the Box Trapper interface to protect your inbox from spam. BoxTrapper requires all email senders who are not on your whitelist to reply to a verification email before you can receive their messages.
Calendars & Contacts
Use the Calendars and Contacts interface to configure your calendars and contact applications. For more information, read our How to Set Up Calendars and Contacts documentation.
Email Disk Usage
Use the Email Disk Usage interface to view all of your mailboxes and quickly remove old emails or large messages.
