  6. Your screen should refresh and you should receive a confirmation page. Congratulations! You've successfully changed your email account's password.

Modifying the Email Password through cPanel

  1. Login to your HostMonster cPanel account.
  2. If the user of the email account cannot change it via webmail (for example, they forgot their password), you can also change the email password via cPanel without knowing what the email password used to be.

  3. Click the Email Accounts icon


  4. Click Change Password, to the right, of the appropriate email account.


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

  7. Enter your password again in the Password (Again): text box
  8. Note: The Strength Meter: will indicate the difficulty of the password. We highly recommend you use a strong password.
  9. Click the Change Password button to set the new password.
  10. Your screen should refresh and you should receive a confirmation page. Congratulations! You've successfully changed your email account's password.
