The Email Routing feature sets out how the system routes a domain’s incoming email. You can set the server to accept incoming emails, act as a backup mail server, or act as a remote mail exchanger.

Autoresponders

The cPanel Autoresponder feature allows you to automatically send response messages if you are unavailable for any reason, such as on holiday. The emails will still reach your inbox, and you can deal with them at a later date.

Default Address

cPanel allows you to configure a default address to receive emails not sent to a valid email address, but it is not set by default. It is this default address that is referred to as a catch-all email address. cPanel refers to it as the “default address.”

Mailing Lists

Global Email Filters

Email Filters

The Email Filters feature allows you to set email filters that affect a single domain on your hosting server.

Email Deliverability

The Email Deliverability feature can be used to improve how its recipient’s spam filters treat your outgoing emails by adding DKIM, SPF, and PTR domain records.

If your hosting account manages your DNS, then you can automatically add or repair various DNS records, or if not, copy records specified to your own domain registrar.

The Address Importer feature allows you to create multiple email accounts or forwarders instantly by importing them from a comma-separated values sheet (csv) or a spreadsheet (xls) file.

Encryption

The Encryption feature in cPanel allows you to use GnuPG or GNU Privacy Guard to encrypt and decrypt messages for additional security. This is useful for businesses sending commercial secrets or other highly confidential information.

It works by the sender encoding a message with the public key of the intended recipient. That recipient will then use their private key to decrypt the message upon receipt.

See the following tutorials:

  • How to setup GnuPG encryption in cPanel (Coming Soon)

BoxTrapper

The BoxTrapper feature helps prevent spam by requiring anyone who sends you an email to complete a verification email in return. It can be configured to work with SpamAssassin so that only suspected spam emails are subject to verification. You can also whitelist emails.
