Changing the password of an e-mail account
Posted by Roy Petersen on Feb-15-2007 12:16 PM

It is useful to occasionally change the passwords on your e-mail accounts to maximize your e-mail security. You should always change your password if you think someone else has access to your account.

Note: Make sure that you change the password in your offline e-mail application as well, or you will not be able to upload or download e-mail to this account.

To change the password of an e-mail account:

  1. Click on the Manage/Add/Remove Accounts link in the Mail area (from the main cPanel page, click the "mail" icon).

  2. Click on the Change Pass button next to the e-mail address you wish to change.

  3. Enter the new password in the New Password field.

  4. Click on the Change button. Your password has now been changed for that account.
