    You can change the password for a user from WHM >> Account Funtions >> Password Modification. Select the user and put the password at the top and click Save. If this is not what you want, please explain your problem a little more.

    No I mean ...

    When a customer wants a password with only two characters ? When I try it, see attachement.

    No you may not. Well, I don't think so. But a 2 letter password can be cracked easy and you don't want passwords falling into the wrong hands. So stick with a 5 - 10 letter password with letters and numbers. It'll be harder to remember, but harder to crack at the same time.
