Recommended Password Guidelines:

It is extremely important to make sure your password is secure to ensure the protection of your mailbox and identity.

Email addresses are often used to verify and authenticate your identity. An insecure password could be just as dangerous as posting your social security number online.

Passwords must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be at least 12 characters
  • Must contain at least three of following:
    • an uppercase character
    • a lowercase character
    • a number (0-9)
    • a special character ( !@#$%^&*)
  • Must not be the same as your current password
  • Must not include any portion of your email address
  • Should not contain any personal information.

Here are a few examples of bad passwords:

  • Password
  • 12345678
  • Your domain name or name
  • aardvark, honey, badger, lightswitch or any single dictionary word

Here are a few examples of good passwords:
