How to Change an Email Password in cPanel and Webmail

We advise using a password manager so that you can generate lengthy, complicated passwords and store them securely. No matter what, passwords can be misplaced, incorrectly preserved (have you ever copied a password and added an additional space character? ), or painful to reveal if necessary (although that should generally be avoided for reasons of accountability).

Additionally, you ought to change passwords at least once every 90 days. Setting a minimum password strength requirement is one of the numerous security measures available with Managed VPS Hosting.

Using Webmail or cPanel, you can reset your email password for any reason. Both approaches will be described in this article along with the benefits of each.

Change Your Email Password in cPanel

Using cPanel is the best method if you have cPanel access or forgot the email account password.

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. Under Mail, click Email Accounts.
  3. On the right of your email account, click MANAGE.
  4. Type a new password.
  5. Click UPDATE EMAIL SETTINGS at the bottom.

Change Your Email Password in Webmail

The simplest way for an email account user without access to cPanel who can still connect to the email account is to change your password using Webmail.

  1. Log into Webmail.
  2. This step applies to those who have changed your default Webmail page.
    From Horde, select cPanel Webmail Home at the top.
    From Roundcube, select Webmail Home on the left.
  3. Afterward, or if you’re on the default Webmail page, click your email account in the upper-right corner, then Password & Security.
  4. Type a new password and click Save.

Consider setting up the following if you want to strengthen email authentication:

  • Spam Filters (formerly SpamAssassin) to blacklist accounts identified as sending spam
  • Email Filters to automate organizing or forwarding emails within specified folders
  • Strengthen overall email authentication (requires cPanel access)
