Overview

This interface lets you easily configure a mail client to access a cPanel email address. A mail client lets you access your email account from an app on your computer or mobile device. For example, use this feature to configure your AppleĀ® Mail client.

Note:
  • A mail client must already exist on your computer or mobile device. If it does not, you must install it before using this feature.
  • If you do not see your mail client listed, you must manually configure it. For more information, read your mail client’s documentation.

To configure a mail client, perform the following steps:

  1. Select your mail client application’s script from the Protocols list. A new window will appear.
    Important:

  3. When you complete the process, your mail client will open and log in to your email account.
