A Communication bridge between the Domain and Audience
Many a times, creating a website entails a subsequent task of creating and managing an email ID for your domain. This email ID works as a point of contact between your domain and your audience, and it is through this email address that you will be in constant touch with your readers. This makes effective email management an important task for any domain owner. Let us see how cPanel helps you out here.
Email management with cPanel
Let us first take a look at how you can create and perform other activities with your email accounts using cPanel.
In the Emails section of your cPanel interface, you would find an icon called “Email Accounts”. Once you click on the icon, you are directed towards a page which asks you to enter your email ID, password and your mailbox quota (the amount of disk space you want to allocate to this particular email ID). Once all the details are filled in, simply click on “Create Account” and voila! , your email ID for your domain is created. cPanel’s easy to understand user interface gets the job done in a jiffy.
If you want to send/receive any emails from an existing email client such as Live Mail, Outlook etc, cPanel provides you preconfigured downloadable settings for all these applications. Simply execute the settings file, enter your mail ID and password and cPanel will seamlessly sync your domain with your existing mail clients.
Email forwarding with cPanel
With your domain becoming popular, managing emails in one single mailbox becomes cumbersome, thus forcing you to make multiple emails for different types of communications. In such a scenario, email forwarding assumes a greater role so that you do not miss out on any important communication. To set up an email forwarding system, you can follow the below given steps on cPanel’s interface:
• Click on the “Forwarders” button under the Email section of your cPanel interface
• Click on the “Add Forwarder” button. This opens up an interface similar to the Create Email one. Here you need to mention the source and destination email IDs between whom you want to establish a forwarding link.
• Click on Add Forwarder and your forwarder has been successfully added.
• If you want to connect your mail to a program, you can do so using “Advanced options” section. Select the “Pipe to a Program” option and enter the path name of your program file with the file extension and cPanel will take care of the rest.
