How to Change your Email Password

Spam Assassin

If you host with Waves Web Design, changing your email address is easy and can be done using 2 different methods. Which one you choose will depend on which way you usally access your email and whether you have access to the main hosting account login. Remember to also change this password in your phone, tablet, email client or other email management tools as well once you have completed this tutorial.

 

You can make changes to your email account through cPanel or webmail.

1) Changing Email Password through Webmail

The email account owner can use this method to change the existing password for an email account. It requires the owner to know the old password before a new one can be set.

    Login to webmail.
    Click Change Password.
    In the Password field, type the new password for the email address.
    In the Password (Again) field, type the new password again.
    Click Change Password.

You should receive a confirmation page showing that your password was successfully modified.

2) Changing Email Password through cPanel

If the email account owner has lost or forgotten the password, the password can be changed through cPanel. This method does not require the old password.

    Log into cPanel.
    In the Mail section, click the Email Accounts icon.
