Hosting question: How do I change my Outlook password?

Advice on how to change your password, from Accentika Internet's hosting helpdesk team.

For hosting customers, here are some instructions (below) on how to change your password with Outlook and Outlook Express.

If you can see your password field then you will be able to update OK:

  1. Do not make any changes yet.
  2. Please reply to this email to confirm you are ready to change.
  3. We will then update the server with your new password.
  4. Having replied, you should then change to your new password. 

 For Outlook, open Outlook and click "Tools" in the menu bar, then select "Account Settings." In the "Account Settings" window, from the E-mail tab click on the account you want to update. You will see your main account settings.

Delete your existing password and then paste in your new password. You do not need to change any other settings. Click on "Test Account Settings" to check you can connect with your new settings.

If your connection succeeds your password is successfully changed. The procedure is similar with Outlook Express. Click on "Tools", then "Accounts", then click on the account you want to update and change the password.
