When transferring your e-mail accounts to a new service, exporting your old e-mails may be easier than forwarding the e-mails to your new account. In cPanel, you can export your e-mails to an mbox account and import the e-mails using your new e-mail client or account. Mbox is a standard format used to export and import e-mails.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

    Click "Webmail" in the "Mail" section of your cPanel page. Click the "Go to Webmail Login" link and click the "horde" icon to open the "Horde" portal in a new tab.

  3. 3

    Click the "Mail" icon in the left menu of the "Horde" portal, and then click the "Folders" icon in the top menu to go to the "Folder Navigator."

  4. 4

    Select "Inbox in the "Folder Navigator" and click the "Choose Action" pull-down menu. Select "Download Folders" to download the e-mails in an MBOX file. Select "Download Folders [zip format]" to download the MBOX file in a zip file.
