cPanel Email Set Up
If you host with kimtown and would like to set up your email, here’s how to do that:
First, you’ll need to access cPanel:
http://yoursite.com/cpanel into your preferred Internet browser. (Make sure you have changed your nameservers to point to kimtown before trying to access your site’s cpanel)
- Enter your cPanel username into the Name field.
- Enter your password into the Password field.
- Click Login.
- You will be greeted by a cPanel startup page on your first login.
To add a new email address:
- Type the email address to be created in the Email field.
- If you manage more than one domain, make sure to select the appropriate domain from the pull-down menu.
- Type the password in the Password field.
- Retype the password in the Password (again) field.
- You can click the Password Generator link to have a strong password generated for you. For more information, read our Password Generator documentation (on the cPanel site).
- Type the quota in the Mailbox Quota field.
- The quota defines how much hard drive space the account will be allowed to use.
- Important: Due to mail server constraints, quotas cannot be greater than 2048 MB. Quotas exceeding this amount must be unlimited.
- Click Create Account.
Existing addresses are displayed in a table. Using this table, it is possible to:
- See how much disk space the account uses.
- Change a password.
- Change a quota limit.
- Delete an email address.
- Access an account through webmail.
- Configure a mail client.
