Importing and Creating Multiple Addresses in your Account

Posted by Allura on 01 04 2019.

A Brief Introduction
This interface allows users to use two types of files to create multiple email addresses or forwarders for one’s account simultaneously. Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet files (.xls) or comma-separated values sheet (CSV) files (.csv) can be used to import data.

Create the import file
If you want to create the import file, you have to add a series of email addresses and passwords to your spreadsheet or plain text file. For each account forwarder, one can use a new line in the plain text file or a separate row in the spreadsheet to separate the information for each account or forwarder.

Importing the information for each address or forwarder is possible through this particular format:

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

Note:

The interface does not need the domain portion of the address (for example, @example.com).

 	Passwords (to import email addresses).
 	Quotas (for example, 10 Megabytes is indicated as 10).

A Brief Introduction

This interface allows users to use two types of files to create multiple email addresses or forwarders for one’s account simultaneously. Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet files (.xls) or comma-separated values sheet (CSV) files (.csv) can be used to import data.

Create the import file

If you want to create the import file, you have to add a series of email addresses and passwords to your spreadsheet or plain text file. For each account forwarder, one can use a new line in the plain text file or a separate row in the spreadsheet to separate the information for each account or forwarder.

Importing the information for each address or forwarder is possible through this particular format:

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

Note:

The interface does not need the domain portion of the address (for example, @example.com).

  • Passwords (to import email addresses).
  • Quotas (for example, 10 Megabytes is indicated as 10).

A .csv file can be defined as a plain text file with the .csv extension. One needs to separate the email addresses and passwords consistently when one uses a .csv file. It is mandatory to use commas (,), periods (.), or any other character (delimiter), to separate the information that one wishes to import for each account.

 

The .csv file will resemble the following example:

 

1

2

3

user1@example.com, Password, 10

user2@example.com, Password, 10

user3@example.com, Password, 10

 

Import the file

One can just import the file to create the accounts. All of the accounts can be created automatically by cPanel using the information in the file.

To import the file, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the E-mail Accountsor Forwarders.
  2. Click on Choose Fileto select the file to import.
  3. Choose the character that one used as the delimiter. If one used a delimiter that is not displayed in the list, select Otherand enter that character in the Other text box.
  4. If one placed column headers in the first row of the file, Select Treat first row as column headers.
  5. Click on Next.
  6. To assign the properties of each delimited value, one can use the menus above each column of values.
    • For example, if one wishes to use a comma as the delimiter, and input the line account, password, domain, use the menus above each value to assign an account to Email, password to Password, and domain to Domain.
    • For columns that contain unnecessary data, select Ignore.
  7. Select the domain to use for these accounts, from the Domainmenu at the bottom of the interface
  8. Click on Next.
  9. Click on Finish.

Clicking on Import More will result in returning to the first screen of this interface and importing additional addresses.
