There is no cpanel scripts to reset the email account password through command line because the email account passwords are saved in /home/user/etc/shadow file in the encrypted mode, so Its better to change the email account password Cpanel.

If you want to add Email account on your server through SSH you can do it using the following command

/scripts/addpop [email protected] password quota#

Hello :)

There are no scripts provided by cPanel that will change the password of an email account. If using the command line is a requirement, you would have to develop a script using our API2 function for changing the email account password:
