And not paranoid enough to know that using the same password for more
than one purpose is a VERY bad idea.  One of those systems might store
passwords as plaintext allowing all the admins to see them.

Systems which use qmailadmin allow ordinary users to log into it (this
is documented but very easy to miss) and from there they can change
their paassword and other aspects of their account (what can be changed
depends upon the version).
