    Set the forwarder or create an alias with that name!

    Is there any way to rename a email account outside of cpanel? I've got about 1.5 gig worth of email I don't want to use and I would prefer not making things more confusing by adding aliases. Thanks!

    Go on, have a guess
    Probably the simplest way would be to create the new account and ensure it has no email in it. Then copy the mail file/folders from the old to the new account, then delete the old email account. Email folders will be under /home/account/mail/domain.com/emailaccountname/*
