Overview

Whether you're doing your every-six-months security update, troubleshooting an email problem, or just feel like typing something different when you log in, you will occasionally need to update your email password. This article provides step-by-step instructions for doing just that.

This guide will show a Server Administrator how to change the password for their Email Users.

TIP:

  • Email users can change their own password via uControl or webmail. Note that using either webmail or uControl to change a password requires that you know your current password and are able to log in. 
  • Please remember to use strong passwords. For more information, please read: Strong password guidelines.
