E-Mail Overview
Posted by Serhiy Hryva on 31 January 2011 03:18 PM

The Mail area functions allow a user to configure many different aspects of their domain's email accounts. This includes creating and removing e-mail accounts, configuring forward rules, managing spam filters, etc.

  • Email Accounts - here you are able to create e-mail accounts, define passwords and quotas for them. You can separately manage the e-mail accounts for a chosen domain.
  • WebMail - here you can access the two web mail programs (Horde and Squirrelmail) included in cPanel. These programs will allow you to read your email through a browser window without having to make any changes to your local computer.
  • BoxTrapper - Protect your inbox from spam by forcing all people not on your white list to reply to a verification email before they can send mail to you.
  • SpamAssassin - is an automated email filtering system that attempts to identify spam messages based on the content of the email's headers and body.
  • Forwarders - using e-mail forwarders will allow you to send copies of all your messages from one e-mail account to another. You can also send the messages from all the accounts with one domain to the corresponding ones with another domain.
  • Auto Responder - setting auto responder emails
  • Default Address - feature will "catch" any mail that is sent to an invalid email address for your domain.
  • Mailing Lists - Can simplify sending messages to a large group of people. You can add a group of email addresses to a mailing list to avoid typing in those addresses each time a mailing is sent.
  • User Level Filtering - here you can manage filters for each user. Each user filter is processed after the main account filters.
  • Account Level Filtering - allows you to manage the filters for the main account. There you can also test the existing filters.
  • Email Delivery Route - allows you to view how the mail server will treat a message when sending to or delivering to a specific address.
  • MX Entry - This allows you to have the email from one domain delivered to another domain. Changing your MX entry will change your sites DNS record for MX.
  • Email authentication - This aids in 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.
