'IT's locked me out!' Dealing with mandated password change

Christopher Breen | Dec. 2, 2014
Effective or not, many IT departments insist that you change your password every 90 days. Here's how to do it as painlessly as possible.

If you use an email client that doesn't get its settings from the Internet Accounts preference be sure to enter the new password in that app's Accounts area before proceeding.

Once a device holds the new password you can then reconnect to the Internet. If you've done this correctly and with every device that uses that password, you should be able to send and receive email without fear of being locked out.
