Step 1. After logging in to your cPanel, click Import Addresses/Forwarders. This link can be found under the Mail Menu Box. You will see a page as showing below:
Step 2. If you want to create email addresses, select E-mail Accounts; otherwise, select Forwarders to create forwarders in your cPanel account. Click browse to provide your xls or csv file from your computer. Click Next.
Step 3. Now you will be asked to confirm each column present in your uploaded xls/CSV file. You can customize the meaning of each column here.
