You can create multiple email addresses and forwarders simultaneously from your account, with the help of the Address Importer Interface. In order to import data, both Microsoft Excel spreadsheet files (.xls) and comma-separated values sheet (CSV) files (.csv) can be used.
The first step to create the import file- a series of email addresses and passwords has to be added to the spreadsheet or to the plain text file. If it is a spreadsheet then a separate row and if it’s a plain text file a separate line should be used for every account forwarder. In this way, every account’s and every forwarder’s information would be separated.
For each address or forwarder, import the following information first:
If it is a plain file the extension would be .csv. Please note that if a plain .csv file is in use, email addresses and passwords should be separated with consistency. The information which is to be imported for each account should be separated with a character or delimiter like a comma (,) or period (.).
Examples of .csv file:
If you want to create accounts, first import the file. All the accounts in the file are created automatically by cPanel with the help of the information that you upload.
Steps written below are to be followed to import a file:
If you wish to import more addresses and desire to return to the first screen of the interface, click ‘import more’.
This feature provided by cPanel enables administrators to upload and create several user accounts through one bulk action. Such batch operations are very useful in saving precious time and effort.
