    Windows 10 Mail and Client had me reset my Microsoft online password,


    Windows 10 prompted me to change my Microsoft online password when I couldn't remember the existing one. When I did this, the password change also went to my password for getting email through the mail client for the same email address I use to log in to Microsoft online. So now I can't get email until I change the password back.

    :)

    Windows 10 Mail Password Problem

    I have just recently had a similar access problem with bt mail. My password has been changed three times now as a result of the windows mail client recording a 16 digit password which my password was not. I now go in and reset each time bit not exactly
    how this system should work! So a permanent solution/fix would be good please.

  3. I cannot access my Apple account. I changed the password this morning using a secure password generator, but it was not saved.

    Original Title - Windows 10 Mail passwords

    I have a sort of unique problem. I cannot access my Apple account. I changed the password this morning using a secure password generator, but it was not saved. I also cannot find my recovery key. However, after I changed my password, I also entered into
    my Windows 10 mail client for the calendar integration. Is there any way to reveal stored passwords in the Windows 10 email client?

    Hi geercom.

    If you want to manage your Microsoft account password you can do so at account.microsoft.com. You should also be able to change in Windows 10 settings under accounts. Under the heading "Your info" should be a link to manage you microsoft account.

    Before changing that though I don't think I fully understand problem. If your Microsoft account is also your email account and they are both microsoft the password should have changed in both places. Is your physical email account a hotmail, outlook, live or MSN domain?

    You should be able to log into these accounts using a standard browser to determine what password to use.

    You might also open mail app, click on gear, lower left, then manage accounts. Click on account in question and you should be able to change account settings.

    I don't wish to steer anyone wrong with passwords so before changing things maybe you could help me to understand better.
