Yes, if you have still access to the mysql database. have a look at this thread, I posted a sql statement there on how to change a password for a ISPConfig user.

Default Worked great...by the way a thought for a future release..

some times when you view pages like the add email and click into a users email, maybe there could be a button that says click here to set new password.
Sometimes just viewing pages can then save a new password?
Does that make sense?
I had it happen a few times with users when I went in to their email settings and then found out either firefox or something (I don't think it was me ( -: ) changes their password while I am in there. One reason I can see this happening is if firefox saves a password I set. Then the user changes it, then I come in to fix something and firefox resets it?
THANKS A TON FOR THE HELP!!!!!

The password isn't changed if you don't type in anything in the password field. And Firefox doesn't reset passwords.
