    You just need to create the Mail Account inside a each single cPanel account. The mailserver should already be installed with cPanel.

    After you install cPanel, mail services should automatically be set up. To check, go to WHM > Service Configuration and make sure Exim is checked under the 'Enable' and 'Monitor' columns.

    Mail actually is serviced by two things - Exim (the MTA), and IMAP (how users log in, etc). Exim and Courier IMAP are installed already - so technically the only thing you should need to do is create the cPanel account, then the mail accounts in cPanel for the domain you set up. Then, assuming your domains are routing to that server, your email should start delivering to the accounts you created.

    I believe that the default mailserver for new cPanel installations is Dovecot now, so the IMAP and POP3 mailserver may be Dovecot rather than Courier. This was tested on a new cPanel install and it has Dovecot set as the default during the wizard.

    Please note that you can make the selection for IMAP and POP3 mailserver in WHM > Mailserver Selection area. You can configure the mailserver settings in WHM > Mailserver Configuration area.
