    I don't think it shows you your password as you need to enter it to do any alterations

    If you need to enter a new password or you cant remember you passy send me a pm and ill alter it for you in the admin panel

    Are you talking here or for a hosting cpanel? If the latter fairly sure there's no way to view, only reset.

    Thanks to hoponbaby

    yes, looking on a hosting account cpanel..
    I have found:

    passwd:$6$W1XEF7IiuEEyps0N$O7jPv26Yde9Q8mApgIbs3yMK.Lmc82rwdbgujMOxTzB11K92AuMjoupdxPATUaN73PXEPUe/ytQ9Uix38KvFV.

    in a folder related to the email called @pwcache..but this doesn't look right!

    You could well be right, for some reason it just rang a bell when I was looking in same sort of thing a few years back...

    I don't believe you can.

    You can reset them with new passwords but being able to read them would kind of defeat the purpose.
