You do not need to remove iptables, but you can stop the server and disable it.

Code:
systemctl stop iptables
systemctl disable iptables

If it was stopped, it is possible to restart it or using it again?
I am afraid if I stop it, I can not use it any more.

systemctl?

This command is for CentOS 7? I am using version 6 and it has differences if I use other OS contributions as Debian, Ubuntu or Fedora?

it is not recommended to disable or uninstall iptables from a server due to security reasons. Recently we found lot of hacking attempts around the globe and hacker might use your server for malicious activities. If you have issues with login details, I would suggest you to setup a password that would be easy for your remember to avoid such issues in future.

If you still want to disable it, try
systemctl stop iptables
systemctl disable iptables

If you are using cPanel, this is more than likely a CPHulk issue. Additionally this could also be caused by CSF more so than stock IPTables. I would go with others and just disable to fix your rules. Is there more detail that you can provide about your environment. You specifically mention login is being blocked to e-mail.
