    Hello,

    I'm having trouble locating the database for email accounts made using cPanel, I want my users (staff) to use that email login information to log into the email panel on the website. How can I make this possible? I have looked at my databases through phpMyAdmin and found only my wordpress database and the information schematics. Does cPanel use something else?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello :)

    cPanel does not store login details for email accounts in a database. You can review the following document for information about where email data is stored:

    Thank you.

    Could I use those files to authenticate (log in) a user into my site?

    The passwords are encrypted so you will not be able to see them in plaintext. You could direct them to a webmail client included with cPanel if the purpose is to give them access to a web-based email client.

    Thank you.
