Changing your POP login password and … WebMail!

Changing your password

The accounts that are generated here come with a secure password. Since that’s been sent to you via email, it may be a good idea to change it.

Go to https://exmsft.com:2096/ – you will get a big scary security warning from your browser that the server’s security certificate does not match the URL. That’s correct. The URL is exmsft.com, and the self-signed certificate is for lw5.pugetsoundsoftware.com – you can check that if you like. Accept the warning and your session will still be encrypted.

You then may get an authentication pop-up from your browser:

Auth Dialog

Ignore/cancel that. This is not the login you’re looking for.

Next up, the real login screen (might look somewhat different as versions change):

exmsft.com Webmail login

Login with your email address and your current password.

Next up, a choice of webmail client.

exmsft.com webmail client choice

NOTE the lower left-hand corner: Change Password. Click on that:

Change Password dialog

From there you’re on your own. (Passwords can be reset, but not recovered, if you get completely lost.)

Webmail

You’re of course welcome to use it; it’s actually quite powerful. You have your choice of three different webmail interfaces even.

However: my ability to support this is extremely limited. I’ve actually rarely if ever even used any of the three. I will say that there’s lots of information on them out on the web, so if you’re having difficulties that would be my first suggestion.

Forwarding

Please don’t use this. In fact, I reserve the right to remove forwards I find. The problem is that we forward unfiltered spam, and that can then cause the entire server to be blocked by assorted destinations of that forward.
