    Hi everybody,

    We are currently a judicial inquiry and we block a key point of the case. Is it possible, yes or no access to email inbox created through Cpanel without knowing the password?
    Is there a way under the Cpanel to do?

    Thank you so much.

    The only way you can do this, log in without knowing the password for an email account, is if this is set in WHM > Tweak Settings:

    Allow mail account authentication using the password of the domain owner's account

    This means that if you log into the cPanel account as the domain owner, you can then auto log into the individual email accounts in cPanel > Email Accounts > More > Access Webmail area without having to know the actual email account password.

    I don't understand the point of a poll for this question, though. It isn't a matter of opinion, so there's no reason for a poll. This is a fact that you can log into cPanel email accounts without the password using the above steps. It isn't an opinion.

    Also, if you have the MailScanner Front End from configserver.com you can access any emails stored on the server from WHM, if you have that access.
