    • Account Type: POP or IMAP (we recommend IMAP)
    • Email Address: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    • Incoming Mail Server: mail.your-domain-name.com

How to change the password of an e-mail account

I recommend to change your password at least once a month. To do so, please login to cPanel website at: www.domainname.com/cpanel and do the following:

  1. Click Mail
  2. Click Add/Remove/Manage Accounts
  3. Click the Password button to the right of an email address for which you would like to change the email password for.
  4. In the box to the right of New Password, type the new password for the email address
  5. Click Change button

You have now successfully changed your email password.

I cannot find an option for my client to change their password.

The option appears just before you choose a mail program (Horde, SquirrelMail). Login to webmail at: www.domainname.com/webmail using your full email address for username and your current password. Choose below for some helpful mail icons such as "Change Email Password".

Note: This requires the user to already have a working password. This is a password change/update, not a password reset. If the user has lost the working password, only the account owner can reset it.
