How to Use Webmail to Access the Main Email Account in cPanel

If your web host uses cPanel, your web hosting account comes with a default email address that is typically a combination of your username and your primary domain name.  System messages are often delivered to this email account.

Many people decide not to use this email address, and instead create new email accounts based on their needs.  Others create forwarders and forward the desired email accounts to the main email account.  The choice is yours.
