    Hello,

    I will suggest you configure POP mail account on your home PC so that your all mails will be download on local PC and due to that your mail accounts will not use disk space on your cPanel account.

    Hello :)

    You are welcome to setup a mail server, create email accounts, and have all of the email handled on your own mail server. Note that the email accounts will not integrate with cPanel (e.g. accounts you create in cPanel do not automatically sync to a remote mail server). On cPanel, you must setup the MX record to point to the new mail server hostname.

    Thank you.
