[Solved] cPanel Mailbox Running Out Of Space/Getting Filled! What To Do?

If you are on a Shared Hosting Account using cPanel as your Server Management Tool and use its' Web Mail feature, then often you might have landed into this precarious situation where you find yourself running out of Mailbox space after a certain period of time. That's if you begin to get loads of message running into thousands! And once your mailbox is filled your mail starts bouncing and the only option that remains with you is either to backup your mails in your local computer or delete some of your old mails. But again a time comes where you find yourself ---- back to square one with your mailbox filled!!! Also may be you would not want to delete all your mails and like to keep all/some of your mails with you.

So, today I finally have found an easy work around which will cost you not a single dime, save your lots of worry and precious time.

To achieve this we will use Gmail's variety of features and it's better you create an unique Gmail id for the email account you are trying to create a backup.I am sure the same can be done using Hotmail/Outlook and may be even Yahoo.

These handy features of Gmail will allow us to:
  1. Import all our mails from our Remote Server to it's inbox retaining all the originals in the Hosting Server (provided you select the option to retain all message in the web host, while configuring Gmail.)
  2.  Create an 'alias' to the above Email Account in Gmail so that you can reply from your Gmail account as though you were using the above Email Account.
  3. Create an automatic forwarder in the Web Host so that all the mails get automatically forwarded to your Gmail (This is optional --- read below to know why.)

    Out of personal experience I know this is a better choice than storing your mails in your local computer because if your computer happens to crash or experience data loss you will have no worry whatsoever about loosing your mails as all your mails will be in the Gmail Server.
Step 1:  Importing the Emails from Web Host to your Gmail Account

As in the above figure first click on Settings

Click on Accounts & Imports

Click on Import mail and contacts a Window as below will pop out.
