Introduction
This feature is for cPanel and WHM version 68. One needs to navigate to (cPanel >> Home >> Email >> Address Importer) for working on this feature. This allows one to use two types of files in order to create multiple email addresses or forwarders for one’s account synchronously.

Create The Import File
One needs to add a series of email addresses and passwords to one’s spreadsheet or plain text file. For each account forwarder, one may use a separate row in the spreadsheet or a new line in the plain text file in order to separate the information for each account or forwarder.

This feature is for cPanel and WHM version 68. One needs to navigate to (cPanel >> Home >> Email >> Address Importer) for working on this feature. This allows one to use two types of files in order to create multiple email addresses or forwarders for one’s account synchronously. One may use Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet files (.xls) or comma-separated values sheet (CSV) files (.csv) in order to import data.

Create The Import File

One needs to add a series of email addresses and passwords to one’s spreadsheet or plain text file. For each account forwarder, one may use a separate row in the spreadsheet or a new line in the plain text file in order to separate the information for each account or forwarder.

One can import the following information for each address or forwarder, as in:

  • Usernames (for example, user1 or user@example.com).

It is to note that the interface does not require the domain portion of the address (like for example, @example.com).

  • Passwords (to import email addresses).
  • Quotas (for example, 10 indicates 10 Megabytes).

A .csv file is a plain text file with the .csv extension. When one uses a .csv file, one must keep in mind to separate the email addresses and passwords consistently. One can use commas (,), periods (.), or any other character (delimiter), to separate the information that one wishes to import for each account.

Import The File

Steps:

  • One needs to select E-mail Accounts or Forwarders.
  • Then one needs to click on Choose File in order to select the file to import.
  • Then one has to select the character that one used as the delimiter. If one somehow has used a delimiter that does not appear in the list, then one needs to select Other and enter that character in the Other text box.
  • Then one needs to select the Treat first row as column headers if one has placed column headers in the first row of the file.
  • Then, click on Next.
  • One needs to use the menus above each column of values in order to assign the properties of each delimited value.
    • As for example, if one chose to use a comma as the delimiter, and input the line account, password, domain, then one can use the menus above each value to assign account to Email, password to Password, and domain to Domain.
    • One can select Ignore for columns that contain unnecessary data.
  • One can select the domain to use for these accounts from the Domain
  • Click on Next.
  • Lastly, click on Finish.

One can click on Import More in order to return to the first screen of this interface and also to import additional addresses.

Conclusion

This feature helps to create and import multiple email addresses or forwarders for one’s account simultaneously with certain technical steps.
