Problem -- changing email password


#1

Hi,

I used http://mailboxes.bleaklight.com to change my email password; however, my email account at http://webmail.bleaklight.com will not recognize the new password.

Am I doing something wrong, because when I go to http://webmail.bleaklight.com at the bottom it says go to http://mailboxes.bleaklight.com to change passwords.

(I know I can change my email password by logging directly into my dreamhost account; however, I don’t want to do it that way, because in the future I might assign other people email accounts, and I want them to be able to change their email password without going through me.)

I expect it might take up to an hour for the new password to take effect. Have you waited a bit and the new password still doesn’t work?

Past that, if you try updating the password through mailboxes.domain.com that may help as well. It’s possible that the system glitchd once and didn’t properly update the password.

Thanks. You were right. I just needed to wait a little while for it to change.
