Go to Password tab and change the password
Before save the password, you can check whether the user validated recovery email address and, if necessary, disable or force a password change.
- You can disable password change - this ensures that user doesn't set a weak password, e.g. Password-123
- When force a password change, access to the mailbox is blocked for all email clients (POP3, IMAP) and webmail (messages will be delivered) until the password is changed. User will have to login into webmail and after entering the password, the password change form will be displayed
Other useful information
Do I need to change password anywhere else?
After changing the password, most e-mail clients (eg after restarting the e-mail client) will display a dialog for entering the password with the option to save a new password, see the example below from Outlook (tested clients: Outlook 2003 to 2013, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Opera Mail ):
In this dialog, just enter a new password and check the option to remember it. The password in the email client will be updated.
You can recognize it by the following parameters
- the password is the same as the username or domain without the TLD (mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org has a password info or mydomain);
- it is shorter than 8 characters;
- it consists of name, surname, company name, words found in dictionaries;
- the password is a sequence of numbers or letters (eg 12345678, qwerty);
- it contains only one character (e.g. aaaaaaaa).

There are many definitions of "strong password" on the Internet. Most agree that it should consist of a combination of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters.
Yes, the password Ak@47_58#Sa!O9H^x4U is difficult for a spammer to deal with. Unfortunately, even its rightful user does not remember it. This is not the best way to ensure at least basic comfort and a certain degree of safety.
No worries, lets use a common word and make a substitution and change the size of a few letters. So what about the following password: maNH@tAn_89? That's better, isn't it? But how do I remember it? What letter is actually uppercase? Which 'a' I actually replaced with @ - the first or the second one?
Easy to remember password does not have to be necessarily "weak". Daniel Watson from Camden, London will probably easily remember this password DnlWtt-Cmdn-Lndn. It is nothing more than Daniel Watt-Camden-London. Just leave out the vowels.
