    Hi,

    I am wondering if there is any way to remove some of the options in the drop-down menu when logging into webmail and clicking on the email address in the top right, is it possible to remove the following:

    • Password & Security
    • Spam Filters
    • Contact Information
    • Search Index
    • Track Delivery

    I don't want my clients touching things that they don't know what they're doing and messing anything up plus the main one I would like to remove is the password & security.

    Thanks

    Hi @matt3m

    It's not possible to remove these all from webmail through any native configuration of cPanel. I should note that the changes they have the ability to make through the webmail dropdown would only affect their account. The only way I can think of to disable all these functions would be to disable webmail for that package's featurelist entirely, though this would mean that none of the accounts on that package/featurelist would have access to it.

    Thanks!

    Hi Lauren,

    Ah, that's a shame - the main one I did want to remove was the ability to change passwords as we always keep records of the passwords and don't want clients using unsecure passwords like password123 for example.

    If I disable webmail then wouldn't that mean people wouldn't be able to check their emails through it?

    Thanks :)

    You can change the password strength minimum requirement to stop them from being able to do this which I think is a better idea personally - WHM>>Security Center>>Password Strength Configuration you can set the default required and the minimum for any password on the server.

    If you disable webmail it would mean people wouldn't be able to check their email through it indeed, they'd need to use a mail client t do so.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm I thought you was going to say that :-D - the thing is I need to have a record of the passwords as well because clients will forget them and we store them all in a secure password manager.

    Is it possible to hide the option in the menu via CSS?

    Thanks :)

    :-D My solution to that would be to allow them the ability to reset their passwords, which is present by default :cool:

    It may be possible to do this, you'd need to customize the paper lantern theme these may be helpful:

    I need to have records of passwords to fix any issues or setup emails on devices for them so that wouldn't work i'm afraid.


    Will take a look at this and see what I can do, thanks Lauren :)

    I don't think this is a good idea but none the less, if this is what works best for you then yea that won't work for you.

    Great, and if you have any questions we do have the cPanel Developer portion of the forums which may be able to help in the endeavor
