Configure Mail Client
To send and receive emails with your domain from any desktop or mobile email client, e.g., Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc., cPanel provides you preconfigured setting for these applications.

Note − There are four types of settings – IMAP and POP3, both over SSL/TLS and Non-SSL too. Using SSL sends your messages with encryption providing extra layer of security, but Non SSL does not. It is recommended that you use settings with SSL. From IMAP or POP3, you can choose anyone you want. Both will work perfectly.

To delete an email account, just click on Manage.
Then scroll down to the bottom part of the account, then you will see the delete email account.
Note: Always backup emails (via POP3 setup) or be mindful in deleting email accounts as they are irretrievable.
