HOW TO CHANGE THE PASSWORD FOR YOUR E-MAIL ACCOUNT
AUCA mail server gives two different ways to connect to it (to user mail account) using the same
username and password (because user will connect to one mailbox, just using two different
methods depending on his/her preferences).
This two ways are:
    1. WEB-INTERFACE (another name is web-mail) - mail.auca.kg
    2. OUTLOOK (mail application)
If user wants to change the password he/she can do it using web-interface only.
If user uses Outlook as well, he/she should modify the password in outlook from old one to a new
one (that was changed in web-interface before).
How to change the password using Web-Mail?
You should know the current password for your mail account. If you don’t remember the password
you should connect to AUCA Computer Department.
So, you know your current password…
    1. Visit the web-mail site:




    2. Log in using your AUCA mail username and password.
    3. In the opened window find the “Personal Settings” word (main menu).
.




                                                                                                                           1
4. In the new window choose “Password”




5. Type the old password (current password) in the appropriate field, and then type your new
   password twice in appropriate field*s* also. Your password should contain at least 1
   number, 1 uppercase letter and some more symbols (numbers or letters). Your password
   should consist of more then 6 symbols.




                                                                                          6. .




7. Then you can press “Log out” in the same window to log out from mail server.



If you use Outlook also, you should modify your password there as well.

How to do it? See the next pages.
