Resetting the Password for an Email Account

You can easily change the password for an email account. This article will explain how to make this change.

Modifying the Email Password through Webmail

The person who uses this email account would typically use this method. They must already know the password to be able to change it.

  1. Login to Webmail.
  2. Click the Change Password button.
  3. In the box to the right of Password, type the new password for the email address.
  4. In the box to the right of Password (again) type the new password again.
  5. Click Change Password button.
  6. Your screen should refresh and you should receive a confirmation page. Congratulations! You've successfully changed your email account's password.

Modifying the Email Password through cPanel

  1. Login to your Bluehost cPanel account.
  2. If the user of the email account cannot change it via webmail (for example, they forgot their password), you can also change the email password via cPanel without knowing what the email password used to be.

  3. Click the Email Accounts icon


  4. Click Change Password, to the right, of the appropriate email account.


  5. This will open the Change Mail Account Settings menu.


  6. Type your new password into the Password text box.
  7. Enter your password again in the Password (Again): text box
  8. Note: The Strength Meter: will indicate the difficulty of the password. We highly recommend you use a strong password.
  9. Click the Change Password button to set the new password.
  10. Your screen should refresh and you should receive a confirmation page. Congratulations! You've successfully changed your email account's password.
