Don't be intimidated by all the offerings in cpanel, it can be overwhelming. Also be careful you could break the internet...well, maybe just your website...no kidding.

  1. the email address you want
  2. the domain (if you have more than one)

  4. this will generate a password for you - it will be ugly :P
  5. if it is your own mailbox you would likely want to leave the quota set to unlimited
  6. create it
