    Then choose a suitable password. Choose a password that is easy to remember but would be hard for anyone to guess. Best passwords are those which contain a combination of numbers and letters lower & uppercase. You can let the system choose a password for you if you prefer.

    Type your chosen password in to the Password: Box. The default Quota per mail box is 250 Mb. If may want to increase your quota or have an unlimited* quota. (*unlimited up to your hosting account's general disk space allowance)

    Note: If your email account becomes full, or if your Hosting account disk space is filled-up, all mail sent to you will not be able to be delivered.

    Please be sure to always allow yourself enough Quota to receive mail and remember to check your email account for mail regularly.

    Congratulations. You have set up an email account in cPanel.
