    How do you change the default message that shows up when someone tries to log into an account that does not have SSH access?

    It's part of the shell binary, so you'd have to change the shell used on the accounts in /etc/passwd from the cPanel one (/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell) to something else that allows you to change the message.
