The video above may look slightly different than our current cPanel layout. However, the functionality described will be similar. Instead of using the sidebar, look for the Email section and click what you're looking for.

To access your email accounts through your cPanel, follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Click on the Email Accounts icon in the Email section – not the Webmail icon!
