Changing your password

From: Outlook Web App (OWA) 2010 Essential Training

Video: Changing your password

Another option that's available to you in OWA is the ability to reset your password. Because OWA is actually the client for your Exchange server and because Exchange is actually in a trust relationship with your active directory or your Windows Server directory list, when you change your password here, you are changing your network password in almost all situations. So if things are configured a little differently in your organization, they'll tell you, but normally what you are doing here is changing your network password. So what that means is if your organization has policies that require people to change their passwords on a periodic basis and you're out of the office when you get that email that says hey time to change your network password, this is a way you can do it without having to worry about, oh I have to leave my vacation in Mexico and return to my workplace just to change my password. Choose Options, choose Change Your Password and first you have to provide the password that you have already.

Choose Options, choose Change Your Password and first you have to provide the password that you have already.

This is my Exchange Server, authenticating me and my name. This is who it thinks I am and I will enter my information. That's my current password and then I will type a new password and I'll type it twice. A strong password is a password that includes both upper and lower case and a number and can also include some different kinds of symbols. So my current password begins in lower case has one uppercase letter in it and then has three numbers. That's pretty good, you want to mix it up. You want a password that you can remember.

If you have to write it down and keep it on a sticky note in your laptop, it's not a helpful password. So something that you can remember and that is a strong password, not a weak password, you'd enter your password you'd click Save and it would be saved. The thing to do then is to sign out and to log back in and make sure that your new password works just fine. That's how you change your password for Exchange and for the rest of your network here in OWA.
