What should you use for a password? If you use a "weak" password, it will be easier for spammers/hackers to guess. Use a password that is at least 8 characters long and contains a mix of lower and upper case letters, along with numbers and other symbols. If you ever have to log into a web site (that we host or not) that does not use encryption (ie. uses http:// instead of the secure https:// protocol) use a different password.
Webmail/POP/IMAP: Login to your webmail account at https://mail.resist.ca using your current password. Near the top of the page there is a link called "Options". After clicking on the "Options" link you will see a link called "Change Password" near the bottom of that page. Click on the "Change Password" link and follow the instructions to change your password.
Changing your password for shell.resist.ca
SSH/Pine/Mutt: If you have a shell account and login using an SSH application, you can type "passwd" at the command prompt. The instructions will ask you to enter your old password and then a new password twice. Remember the password you use to login to ssh is separate from the one you use to login to your mail, to change that follow the mail.resist.ca instructions above.
Changing your password for lists.resist.ca
Your list passwords can be changed in the preferences of the list pages.
Remember, some lists are configured to email your password to you
periodically. Do NOT use a secure password for your list password. Do NOT use the same password for your email as you do for lists.
Login using an SSH application. Type "passwd" at the command prompt. The instructions will ask you to enter your old password and then a new password.
