Creating an email account in DirectAdmin

To create an email within DirectAdmin you'll need to login to your DirectAdmin user through the DirectAdmin Panel -– or if you're the Administrator, you can drop in through the admin user to the domain that you want to create an email account under.

Once at the user level; go to "Email Manager" and click "Email Accounts"


You'll be taken to the account management screen for emails. You'll see that a default email for the primary user already exists. DirectAdmin creates a default inbox for the user created with the account.

If you hover over "Create Account" you'll see the current number of accounts and the maximum amount allowed; in our example it's 1 out of 10.


Click "Create Account" to move towards the email creation screen.

In this area; you'll need to provide the following:

  1. Username
  2. Password
  3. Quota
  4. Send Limit

Quota is the amount of disk space you allowed for that email account.

Send Limit is the daily number of emails that account can send.


As you can see in our example, we used khtest2 for the username; set a quota of 50 and a send limit of 200.

We can now click "Create Account" to provision this new email.

You'll get a successful completion notification that it was a success like this:


You can click the X to close the message: it will redirect you back to the email management window to show that your new account now exists.

Congratulations, you've successfully added a new email to your DirectAdmin account!

We hope this guide has been straight-forward and helpful.
