To use email on your domain name, you must:
1. Setup your email addresses in cPanel using the Email Accounts tool.

To Setup Email Addresses in cPanel:

Log in to your cPanel account and click the Email Accounts tool.

Enter an email name, password, and password confirmation in the appropriate boxes.

Note: The Strength box will show you the strength of your password choice (minimum is 50). If you want cPanel to generate a secure password for you, click the Password Generator button.  Make sure to use a very secure password or your email could get hacked.

3. Enter the mailbox quota you wish for the new account to use (optional). You may use the MB option to specify the account's quota in megabytes or select Unlimited if you wish for the account have an unlimited mail quota.

Note: A mailbox quota defines the amount of hard drive space an account is able to use.

4. Click Create Account.

Settings to use in your Email program or Smartphone:

Setup a new account in your email program or phone.  Use our Secure Mail Settings, below.

User name:
your email address
Password: the password you set up for this email address in your cPanel
Server: with password authentication and SSL (outgoing and incoming)
Incoming Port: 993 for IMAP or 995 for POP
Outgoing Port: 465


In your cPanel, Email Accounts section, you can use the "Configure Email Client" links to automatically configure the email program on your computer. Or you can configure your email program yourself using the settings above.  You'll need to configure your Smartphone manually with these settings.

Some ISPs require that use their SMTP server for outgoing instead.  If your ISP, the company you go through to access the internet, requires you to use their SMTP server you will need to contact them to find out what outgoing mail server settings they require and likely will require you to include your user name and password with them.

Remember that each computer, laptop, phone, or other device you set up may be on a different ISP.
