How to Filter and Forward Your Email in Your C-panel

In your control panel you can do many things with your email account. The two things I will show you in this guide is how to Filter and Forward your email. By filtering your email you can sort the mail by categories or you can send certain ones to the junk folder. By putting filters on your email you will have full control on what you receive in your inbox. If you have a lot of email accounts, you can use a forwarder to forward all your accounts to one email account. That way you only have to check one email account to get all your mail. If you do have a lot of accounts and wish to send them to one account, the filter would work great for that. You could put each email in its own folder.
