CPanel is a fully featured web-based control panel that allows you to manage your domain through a web interface. The idea is to transfer as much of the control and responsibility of managing your web site to you. You have the ability to manage all aspects of e-mail, files, backup, FTP, CGI scripts, and web site statistics.

Mail Manager

The Mail Manager allows you to manage all aspects of your email, from adding new accounts, managing mailing lists, and setting spam filters. There are quite a number of options available, all of which are listed below:
Add/Remove Accounts: Use this to add or remove POP3 email accounts. POP3 email accounts are "email boxes" within your hosting account, where your email is stored. When you create a POP3 email account, you will want to also setup your email program (i.e. Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, etc.) to "retrieve" your email messages.

Default Address: It is good practice to always set a default email address. Doing so will basically tell your hosting account how to handle incoming emails that you have not setup an account for. In other words, if you want several email addresses to all go to the same email box, then you only have to create the one email box (as described above in Add/Remove Accounts), but then set your Default Address to the email address you created above. Then if someone sends an email to an address you have not setup, that message will still get delivered to your POP3 email account.
Alternatively, you can set your Default Address to an email address that does not even exist in your hosting account.... like your main ISP email address.

Auto-Responders: Auto-responders are email messages that are sent automatically when an email arrives for a specific email account. auto-responders are most commonly used for an "Out of Office" style message to inform your correspondents that you are not available, without you having to reply manually. You can have more than one auto-responder on one account. You can use plain text or include HTML code in the auto-responder, and choose from a wide variety of character sets.

Block an Email: You can block an email using spam filters. There are many definitions of spam, but one of the most useful ones is the following:
"Spam: unsolicited email, usually of a commercial nature."
Spam is the electronic version of junk mail, and has been around since the Internet was created. Spam filters are a way of filtering your email to remove unwanted mail based on a variety of criteria. You can block any sort of email, not just mail of a commercial nature. Blocked mail is deleted automatically - it does not even bounce back to the sender. These filters are quite flexible, and very useful if you do not want to receive email from a specific email address.

Forwarders: Forwarders simply allow you to automatically forward email sent to one account to another account. This is useful when you work at two separate locations, or have gone on holiday.

Mailing Lists: The control panel includes a popular mailing list script called Mailman. Mailing lists are an ideal tool for communication between far flung participants and can be about anything you want. Mailman allows you to set up a mailing list with a large number of configurable options, such as who is on the list, where mailing lists messages are sent, and whether you include welcoming messages to new subscribers. The Mailman documentation, which is incorporated into its Administration panel, is clear and helpful, and should be referred to for all questions about using the script. For more information about MailMan, please consult their homepage at: http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman.html

Spam Assassin: Spam Assassin is a mail filter installed on a mail server used to identify spam. It checks for spam using a large number of pre-set rules that check the header, body, and sender of all email messages sent to your domain mailbox. For more information about Spam Assassin, refer to the Spam Assassin website: http://spamassassin.taint.org/index.html

Modify Mail Exchanger (MX Entry): The control panel manages your email through its own mail server. However, by altering your MX (Mail Exchange Record) Entry you can point your email to another mail server, if this is required.
Note: We will not be able to manage your email if you change your MX Entry setting.

Note: All email options can be used in conjunction with each other. For example, you could set up an auto-responder on your main account to email an "Out of Office" message, a forwarder to send the email to your uncle's house where you are staying, and a spam filter to reject all email with "credit" in the subject line. This flexibility is what makes email so powerful as a communication medium.

Read Web Mail
You can read your online email using NeoMail or Horde. Both of these popular webmail scripts allows you to read your email, save them, keep an address book, and perform all of the other basic email functions that you are used to. The main difference between NeoMail and an offline email applications, such as Eudora or Microsoft Outlook Express, is that all of these functions are performed online, rather than on your own computer, and offline applications generally provide many more features.
NeoMail or Horde is optional. You can still use your favorite offline email applications, if you prefer. You can even use a combination of NeoMail or Horde and another tool - you can check your e-mail online, perhaps when you're at work, and download your email to your computer when you get home. You can automatically configure Outlook Express, or manually configure other mail applications.

Change Password
Your domain password is the password you use to log on to your control panel. The ability to occasionally change your password is useful to maximize your site security. You should always change your password if you think someone else has access to your account.
Parked Domains
Domain pointers allow you to "point" or "park" additional domain names to your existing hosting account. This will allow users to also reach your website when entering the "parked" or "pointed" domain into their browsers.
For Example: Let's say you own the business.com and innovation.com domain names. You already have a web site for business.com, but you do not want to create a new website for innovation.com at the moment. By parking innovation.com on top of business.com, all URLs for innovation.com will automatically go to business.com instead.

Addon Domains
Addon Domains work very much like domain pointers, except you setup the new domain names to point to a "sub-directory" of your hosting account.
For example: Let's say you have your hosting account set up as yourcompany.com, but you also own the domain name newsite.com. With the Addon Domain feature you can setup newsite.com to "point" to a sub-directory like yourcompany.com/newsite. You can then build a new website in that sub-directory, and anyone who types www.newsite into their browser would be forwarded to the website you created in yourcompany.com/newsite.
