Email Forwarding to Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo or Check emails from Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo?

Email forwarding allows you to send a copy of all mail from one email address to another. You may have an email address at / /  where you would like to receive a copy of email hosted in your own domain and account. You can setup an email forwarder from cPanel, however that is not recommended because of two reasons

1) Any spam received on your email will pass through as it is to the destination address. The server at the receiving end will consider your cPanel hosting server to be the source of that spam delivering it to their server.

2) If you receive a lot of emails, all those emails will be forwarded to the 3rd party server. And that server will consider all those emails are being generated by your hosting server and consider it bulk mailing and may temporary reject it with errors like this: 
Our system has detected an unusual rate of unsolicited mail originating from your IP address. To protect our users from spam, mail sent from your IP address has been temporarily rate limited.

3) If you receive a lot of spam, your hosting account and server may be black listed for sending spam. 

To solve this problem, we recommend that proper email accounts should be created and email should be fetched using POP3 or IMAP. Gmail for example provides this feature where you can fetch your emails into Gmail. Here is how to do it: (Choose the type of account you’re importing from: A different email provider)

If you use hotmail/outlook or yahoo email service, you can do the same to avoid these problems.
