    I am looking for a way to let the holder of an email account change their own email password.

    Currently, they have to tell the webmaster who has to change the password for them through CPanel. Which is *not* a good way to do it.

    I have searched high and low for the place the email passwords are stored, as I could then write something to do it.

    Any ideas?

    In addition, how about an addon that allows anyone to create a mail account.

    Email passwords are in ~user/etc/shadow

    Hello,

    I am also looking for a good way to do this. One of my clients made me aware of this: http://www.jerryworkman.com/poppass.html

    Do you think this will work with cpanel?

    Thanks!

    Bdraco,

    I\'ve submitted a feature request. Do you have any idea when this will be implemented? I don\'t want to sound pushy, I just don\'t know how long to expect :D (5 days???, 5 weeks???)

    Thanks!
