    When you create a cPanel account:

    Code:
    Domain: accounttester.org
    UserName: accountt
    PassWord: areallybadpassword
    Then log into the cPanel and create an email account with the same Username part as the main account's username, i.e.:

    accountt@accounttester.org

    (Note - accountt@accounttester.org - accountt is the same as the main cPanel account username - accountt)

    The Mail Client Configuration page lists:

    Code:
    Username: accountt@accounttester.org
    Password: Use your cPanel password.
    As the mail settings to use.

    This is wrong.

    This should say:

    Code:
    Username: accountt@accounttester.org
    Password: Use the email account’s password.
    For any other email account that is created - i.e. something@accounttester.org - the information in the Mail Client Configuration page is correct:

    Code:
    Username: something@accounttester.org
    Password: Use the email account’s password.
    This appears to be present in cPanel 11.46.3.6 and cPanel 11.48.4.4. In paper_latern and x3.
