This knowledgebase provides you with the cPanel command you can use to reset or change a cPanel email account password via SSH or terminal. Using the command-line can oftentimes be a more efficient way of changing passwords. Especially if you intend on changing many of them.
We will use the cPanel UAPI passwd_pop call to change the password.
- To begin, connect to your server via SSH or Terminal. Ensure you are logged in as root.
- Run the following command:
uapi --user=YourcPanelUsername Email passwd_pop firstname.lastname@example.org' password='NewPasswordHere'
That’s all there is to it.
If you are a customer and still have questions about resetting your email account password, please login and open a support ticket in our client portal. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
