How to Change the Password of An E-mail Account

You can make changes to your email account through Webmail or cPanel. The instructions below will guide you through changing your email password with either method.

Updating Password through Webmail

The email account owner can use this method to change the existing password. It requires the owner to know the old password before a new one can be set.

1. Firstly, login to webmail.

2. Secondly, click Change Password.

3. In the Password field, type the new password for the email address.

4. In the Password (Again) field, type the new password again.

5. Lastly, click Change Password.

You should receive a confirmation page showing that your password was successfully modified.

Modify Email Password through cPanel

If the email account owner has lost or forgotten the password, the password can be changed through cPanel. This method does not require the old password.

1. Firstly, log into cPanel.

2. In the Mail section, click the Email Accounts icon.

3. To the right of the appropriate email account, click Change Password.

4. This will open the Change Mail Account Settings menu.

5. In the Password field, type the new password.

6. In the Password (Again) field, type the new password again.

Note: The Strength Meter will indicate the difficulty of the password you select. We highly recommend that you use a strong password.

7. Lastly, click Change Password to set the new password.

You should receive a confirmation message showing that your password was successfully changed.
