We have previously shown how to create an email account in cPanel, but what if you want to delete the email account you created? This short tutorial will show you how to remove an email account in cPanel in just a few steps.
There are a few reasons why you might want to delete your account, including the obvious reason of not needing that email account anymore. It can, however, be a very easy way to delete all of your emails quickly. By removing the account and remaking it, you can then start afresh with all of your emails deleted.
STEP 1 — Click on the Email Accounts Icon
The first step is to click on the Email Accounts icon, shown boxed in red in the image below under the Mail section of cPanel. This will allow you access the Email Accounts management screen where you can carry out many tasks including "change password," change quota" or "delete" your email account.
STEP 2 — Select the "Delete" Option for your chosen email account
Once you have loaded the Email Accounts section in cPanel you will see a list of all your current email accounts as shown below:
We have boxed in red the "Delete" button, which when pressed will show a confirmation checking that you want to delete that particular email account. You will have the option to "Cancel" or confirm your wish to "Delete" the account.
By deleting your email account you will remove all copies of any emails currently being stored on the server, so you are advised to make sure you have copied any important emails before doing so.
That is all there is to it. Deleting an email account in cPanel is as simple as a few clicks.
