How can I change an account password?

When HCL Notes® attempts to use an account to connect to an application, and the password stored with that account is no longer valid, you are prompted to enter a new password.

About this task

This can happen, for example, when you are prompted to change an Intranet password. It can also happen if you are attempting to open an application that uses an account whose password you have recently changed but that fits the following criteria:

  • The name and password are not yet stored.
  • The name is stored, but the password is not yet stored.
  • The password has changed since the last time the current action was performed.

See Changing passwords for details. See your administrator if you lose authority to access your account or if you need help changing your password.
