Applied on: cPanel Hosted Email Account
Many people manually create their email accounts in a POP/IMAP client. This requires that they know each setting parameter to configure their email client (like MS Outlook). If they miss a single parameter, the email client will be unable to acces the email server. cPanel provides ready-made scripts to each email user. The email user can download this script after logging in to his/her webmail account as described below:
1. Log in to your webmail account. Normally this can be done by mail.yourdomain.com
2. After logging in, click the link “Configure Mail Client”.
3 . Step 2 will open the screen below:
Here you can find download links for a few email clients. You may click any one as per your choice to download the settings file. For windows, this file will be a registry updation file (.reg extension) and for Mac this will be a zip (archive) file.
The .reg file once executed, will add registry entry into your windows operating system. When you restart your email client, you can find the new email account already configured.
The manual configuration details can also be found on the page in step 3.
