With the variety of passwords we must remember each day, it can be hard to keep them all remembered. Nearly every platform has different password requirements and SmarterMail is no different. If you have trouble keeping your email password in mind, we now have an easy way to recover or change it and get back into your email without having to contact your system administrator for support. In this article, we will explain the steps you should take to set up email password reset functionality for your account so you can keep focusing on what really matters for your business.
Before following these steps, it is important to ensure that you currently have access to your email account. If you don’t and are an email hosting subscriber through Skynet Solutions, contact us and we can help restore your password. Once inside, you will be able to begin the process of protecting your password in the event it ever changes or you simply forget what it was set as. To set up a backup email address, perform the following steps:
- Click the Settings icon on the top menu bar to access your email settings. This should look like a small cogwheel. When this window opens, it will load directly into the Account Settings. This is where you want to be!
- On the User card look for the field labeled “Recovery Email Address“. By inputting your personal email address into this field, you will receive a password reset notification in the event you are ever locked out to your SmarterMail account.
- Once you have added your recovery email address and verified it was inputted correctly, click the Save button above the User card. Once finished you have completed the process successfully!
If you have taken these steps to protect your email password with SmarterMail, you will be able to change your password in the event you can’t seem to figure out what it is set to. In the event this happens, simply click the Forgot your password? prompt on the login screen to get started. Soon after an email reset link will be sent to designated recovery email address.
