Changing the password of an e-mail account

It is useful to occasionally change the passwords on your e-mail accounts to maximize your e-mail security. You should always change your password if you think someone else has access to your account.

Note: Make sure that you change the password in your offline e-mail application as well, or you will not be able to upload or download e-mail to this account.

To change the password of an e-mail account:

Click on the Add/Remove Accounts link in the Mail area.

Click on the Change Password button next to the required e-mail address.

Enter the new password in the New Password field.

Click on the Change button. Your password has now been changed for that account.
