Manage Your Email Accounts



 

Create a New Email Account

  1. Log in to your Bluehost control panel.
  2. Under Hosting select Email from the submenu. 
  3. The Email Accounts section should already be highlighted, but if it isn't, click on it now.
  4. Click Create an Email Account.
  5. Enter the new email address prefix (before the @ symbol), and then select the domain you want to use from the drop-down menu. Email addresses can also contain periods or dots. For example: john.smith@example.com.
  6. Create a password within the guidelines listed on the page, or click Suggest Password and our system will generate one for you.
  7. Next, select a default webmail client from the drop-down menu. We recommend Roundcube. If you're not sure which one you want to use, select "I want to choose later."
  8. Under Mailbox Storage, set the storage limit for this mailbox. If you aren't sure of the user's needs, you may want to select the default limit of 250 MB now and make any necessary adjustments later. Once a user reaches their quota, any incoming mail will bounce back to the sender, so it's important to set a reasonable limit.
  9. Finally, click Create.

Delete an Email Account

  1. Log in to your Bluehost control panel.
  2. Under Hosting select Email from the submenu. 
  3. Select View Details next to the email address you want to remove.

  5. Click Delete to confirm that you would like to delete this email account.

    Note: This will delete all of the emails associated with this email account.
