    manage email tab

  • To change the account's password, under SECURITY, in the New Password text box, type the new password.
  • For security reasons, you should occasionally change e-mail account passwords. You should always change an e-mail account password if you think an unauthorized user has accessed the account. When you change an e-mail account password, make sure that you also update the password in your e-mail client application (if you are using one). Otherwise, you will not be able to access the account.
  • To change the account's quota, under STORAGE, allocate the storage allowed in the Allocated Storage Space list box.
  • This option does not appear if the account is set to unlimited storage.
  • To set account restrictions, under RESTRICTIONS select the settings you want. You can enable or disable incoming messages, outgoing messages, and logins.
  • To change plus addressing (sub addressing) options, select the setting that you want.
  • Click Update Email Settings. cPanel modifies the e-mail account.
