Create a normal hosting account. Login to that hosting account. Now, create an e-mail account. You don't want mailing lists, that's something else. – Tim Post Mar 30 '10 at 12:10
I have tried to create mail account using cpanel. The cpanel shows following error "Sorry, you have exceeded the maximum allowed email account." – prakash.panjwani Mar 30 '10 at 12:31

Ok, it sounds like you're actually following the right steps to add an email account however you created the domain with a limit of 0 email accounts. To check this do the following:

  1. Log into WHM
  2. Go to Main >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account
  3. Select the domain account in question and click 'Modify'
  4. Set the 'Max Email Accounts:' to a reasonable number
  5. Click Save

You should now be able to go back and add the email account.

Thank ,It has helped me. – prakash.panjwani Apr 16 '10 at 8:02
