How Do I Setup Email Client Access In cPanel?

How Do I Setup Email Client Access In cPanel?

To set up the email client access, you'll need to have an existing email account created.  If you have not done this yet, you can review our doc for setting up new email accounts in cPanel.

Step One: Make sure to select Email Accounts at the top and scroll down to the email account you wish to set up. Click on Connect Devices

Step Two: Click on the Set-Up Mail Client link from the drop-down

Step Three: Review the list of email Applications and choose the one you want by clicking on the Protocol link next to it.
