    Hello,

    Is there anyway we can have a self password reset functionality on cPanel?
    I am spending too much time helping people resting their email passwords, so a self-reset functionality would be great.

    Thanks

    Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings, system tab:
    Email password reset [?]
    Allow cPanel users to reset their password via email

    I believe that's what you seek.

    Enabling this is generally not suggested.

    Thank you; indeed, now I remember this option.
    But why isn't it suggested?
    I would assume it doesn't allow as many attempts and it won't reset the password before the user does it him/herself. Also I assume that this feature doesn't have any vulnerability anymore.

    Thanks

    Are you sure that the suggested is related to Webmail? I don't want to give option to reset passwords of main accounts; it is just the email accounts.

    Thanks

    There is no self reset option available for email accounts that I'm aware of.

    Sorry, I misread your original post.

    Thank you, no problem then.
    It would be nice to have such a feature though.
