1.3 Assigning a Password to Your Mailbox

You can assign a password to your Mailbox. GroupWise passwords are case sensitive (for example, Wednesday is not the same as WEDNESDAY). If you forget your password, you cannot access any of your items. You must contact your GroupWise administrator to reset it.

NOTE:If your GroupWise administrator has turned on LDAP authentication, your LDAP password is used to access your Mailbox instead of a GroupWise password, and you cannot add a password through this method.

  1. In the Main Window, click Tools > Options.

  2. Double-click Security, then click the Password tab.

  3. In the New password field, type the password.

  4. In the Confirm new password field, type the password, click OK, then click Close.
