    Hi majoosh

    You cant change the username of the mail account.

    you can modify the accounts through cpanel. i

    Select the mail option in cpanel.

    Select add/remove/manage account.

    There you can change the quota, password etc........

    Let me know whether you need any futher assistance.

    Go on, have a guess
    It is possible if you want to change a virtual mail account by manipulating the files in /home/accountname/etc/domain.com/ and the directories in /home/accountname/mail/, however it's simpler to retrieve any email in the existing account, then remove it and then add your preferred account name.
