    Friendly moderator note

    You originally posted this question as a response to a thread that is over four years old. I moved this post to its own thread since information in such an old thread is not likely to be relevant. This is the original thread:

    http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/can-we-change-email-username-password-outside-cpanel-59083.html

    There is no script to do this directly via the shell, but you can change the password for an e-mail account using the Email::passwdpop API2 function. This function is documented here:

    ApiEmail < ApiDocs/Api2 < TWiki

    If you are not familiar with our API, I recommend the following section of our documentation:

    WebHome < ApiDocs < TWiki

    Also, more information about cPanel from the development perspective is available here:
