When you create an email account in the cPanel interface (not the webmail interface), you also assign a password to that account in the process of creating it.

To change a password for an existing account, in the Mail section go to Email Accounts then next to the account you wish to change the password for, click Change Password.

Email - possible external link

I'm assuming i'm in the right forum here..

I would like to know if there is an external link for allowing users to change passwords?
I want to create a form within Joomla and make it so the users only need to enter their new password details and when they click on submit it changes the password.
I have elderly people using the site and currently i'm not willing to teach them how to use webmail (they get it sent to home computer within outlook)..
I would also like to know if there are easier ways for members to log into webmail if in the future i get around to teaching them. For example if i want them to only log into squirrell mail or round cube that all they need to do is type in mydomain.com/webmail and it takes them straight to their inbox.
{ Sorry bout all the questions here but i had no where else to go :) }
My actual end result that i am wanting if for the following:
** Users log into site (joomla)
** They click on link (webmail) that loads within an i-frame (using thier login details from joomla)
** Users want new password (they click on link, complete form by entering new password and click submit.)
** This password change will then change password within Joomla and Email.

Sorry if this was alot to ask within the forum but i really needed some proper answers due to so many people having their opinions on search engine results.

EDIT

** I am a reseller with access to WHM/CPanel
** My users have access to their Webmail Screen only (in cpanel)
