- POP3/IMAP Accounts Create and manage your own POP3/IMAP email accounts. cPanel provides the ability to create these accounts and manage them with ease.
- Mail Client Configuration When you access an email account through a desktop email application such as Outlook® Express®, the email application will require specific information about your email account. You can use the auto-configure options below to attempt to automatically configure your email application. If the available options are not compatible with your application, you will need to use the Manual Settings information.
- Forwards and Aliases Create forwards and aliases so they are mapped out to another email address, application or external email address.
- Autoresponders Both web site owners and email owners can create and manage auto responders.
- Account Level Filtering Account Level Filters allow you to control granular aspects of your email and apply rules to inbound email.
- BoxTrapper BoxTrapper protects your inbox from spam by requiring all email senders not on your Whitelist reply to a verification email before you can receive your mail. This option is really only for special purposes since we already offer AntiSpam Engine.
- Webmail Featuring: Horde, RoundCube, SquirrelMail cPanel Web Hosting allows you to access your email from any computer with an Internet connection and a web browser. Please make sure to log out when checking your email on public computers so that other people cannot read your email.
- Email Delivery Reports – See how many emails are routing through your account
- Email Delivery Route – View the route an email takes to reach yourself, or a sender
- Email Authentication – Featuring: SPF and DKIM Email authentication is the effort to equip messages of the email transport system with enough verifiable information, so that recipients can recognize the nature of each incoming message automatically. Enabling email authentication will help fight the spread of spam. Both of the methods below work to prevent forged mail from going in and out of your server. The great benefit of enabling these methods is to prevent mail from looking like it is coming from your domain(s). When enabled, these methods should reduce the amount of bounce messages or unwanted emails received when spammers “spoof” one or more of your email addresses.
- MX Record Management An MX (mail exchanger) entry tells a client which server receives mail sent to a domain name. cPanel Web Hosting clients have the ability to control this.
- Mass Email Account Creation This feature allows you to use 2 types of files to create multiple email address or email forwarders for your account simultaneously. You may use (.xls) or (.csv) to import the data.
- mySQL 5 w/phpMyAdmin Easily create databases, users and control permissions for mySQL Create forwards and aliases so they are mapped out to another email address, application or external email address.
- PostgreSQL w/phpPgAdmin Easily create databases, users and control permissions for PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL Databases allow you to store lots of information in an easy to access manner. The databases themselves are not easily read by humans.
