Creating an email account in your new cPanel web hosting plan is quite easy. Setting it up so it will work on your iOS, Android, or Outlook devices is very easy as well. This tutorial will explain how to create an email account, and then how to access it and set it up on different devices. Feel free to skip to certain sections if necessary
Create a new email account in cPanel
First you will want to log into cPanel. Then, click on “Email Accounts”
Then, you will see a list of email accounts that already exist. By default, your username will be listed there as an email account. You want to click on “Create”
When you do this, you will now be taken to the email account creation screen. Type in the email address name (the @yourdomain.com will already be there so just put in the first part of the email address), a password, size of the mailbox, and then click on Create
That’s it! You have now created an email account in cPanel. It will show up now in the list of accounts and you can click on “check email” to check your email now

Simply click on the option you want from the list and this will begin the process and/or show you the steps necessary to complete the setup. For example, if you are on iOS you will want to access this screen from your iPhone and click on IMAP over SSL/TLS” which will start the process of setting up your email account on your device
