Password Requirements

It is extremely important to make sure your password is strong to ensure the protection of your mailbox by restricting access by any unauthorized users. By setting up a complex password, you are increasing the difficulty for a hacker to obtain your password, whether by a brute force attack or an automated machine attack.

Your password must meet the following requirements:
  • Must be at least 12 characters (Note: max. of 32 characters permitted)
  • 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 or previous 5 passwords.
  • Must not include any portion of your email address - including your domain name.
  • 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:
  • Gfd#Fr4Vw29!
  • KGguw@Td223d
