How to Backup and Restore Emails in Roundcube

You are here:

In cPanel, it is possible to backup your emails using both web interfaces – Roundcube or Horde. In this documentation, we can discuss about how to backup and restore emails in Roundcube web interface.

Use the following link to access cPanel webmail.


If you want to backup the whole folder or account, we recommend to use Horde web interface. Roundcube does not provide convenient functionality to download many emails at once.

1) Login to your cPanel webmail using Roundcube web interface.

2) To backup emails to your local computer, select the required email and click on the ‘More’ icon from the taskbar.


3) Select the ‘Download (.eml) ‘option from the dropdown list and specify the location to save the emails.

Backup And Restore

The backup process has been completed now.

4) To import the emails you have downloaded, click on the Gear icon and choose the ‘Import messages‘ option.

5) A new window will be opened. Here you can choose the backup file you wish to be imported from the ‘Choose Files’ option. After selecting the backup file, click the ‘Upload’ button.


Once it has been completed, you will get a notification message that ‘Successfully imported 1 message’.
