    Hi, I've recently moved from shared to VPS hosting, and on my VPS with WHM, I can't find where to enable an admin password override, so cPanel users can use an administrator login to access any email address associated with that account.

    I can currently use my WHM root to access cPanel users, but not login to the emails using cPanel as Admin or Root... I'm stumped.

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    You can modify the following option under the "Mail" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings":

    Mail authentication via domain owner password

    Enabling this option will allow mail account authentication using the password of the domain owner’s account.

    Thank you.
