Password changes for individual email account users.
There needs to be a different way for users to change their email account passwords.
Many of our customers are small businesses with 5 or more email accounts. With cPanel, the email account passwords can be changed only by the cpanel admin user, which means that he/she will know each users individual password. Each user must contact that person each time they want to change their password. This is not appropriate.
I propose two changes....
1. The cpanel user can "lock" an email account password from the "email Accounts" area in cpanel - so that it can only be changed from that point forward by the individual account user. If the email account password is locked, only the server admin can unlock it, to allow the cpanel user access to change the password again. If the account password is unlocked, the cpanel user can change it at any time.
2. When the email account password is locked, the email user must login to webmail where, in addition to the available webmail apps, they will have a new option to change their email password.
This way, the agreement for the email user to manage their own password is between them and the cpanel admin user and it is optional if they require this extra level of security.
