Why cPanel password to set up emails?

  • Answered
Email set-up instructions say to use cPanel password? Why do we not use the individual email password? If we use the cPanel password to set-up individual emails in our email browsers then why would we need individual email passwords in the future? Maybe I am not seeing the big picture here.

Thank you for contacting us about cPanel and email passwords. You will use the cPanel username and password to log into cPanel, but when you are creating individual email accounts you can use any password. You are not required to use your cPanel password for email accounts.
