How to Change Outlook Password in 2 Easy Steps

-

|

Introduction

Before you change your Outlook Password you have to first change it with your email provider. The reason is that Outlook is an email client. It connects to your email provider to send and receive emails.

After changing your email password with the provider (Gmail, Yahoo, etc), you will need to update the password in Outlook app on your computer. Click Change your password with your email provider to see how to change password with common email providers.

In this guide, I will demonstrate how to change email password with your provider with Outlook.com email.

Follow the steps below to change Outlook password in Outlook.com:

  • Check your email or phone for the code. Then enter the code and click Next.

You have successfully changed your password!

How to Change Outlook Password in Outlook Client

As I said earlier, after changing your email password with your provider, you may update Outlook client with the new password. You could also wait for outlook to ask for the new password.

The steps shared below only applies to POP3, IMAP, and SMTP emails. The Outlook password for Exchange emails cannot be modified with the steps outlined here. You will have to wait for Outlook client to ask you to change the password.
“Exchange emails” referred to above include Outlook.com, Office 365 and Exchange emails.
For this Demo, I will use Gmail email on Outlook.

Here are the steps:

  • Open Outlook client on your computer. Then press Ctrl+Alt+S on your keyboard. This will open the Send/Receive Group options.
change outlook password - send/receive properties
  • Next, highlight All Accounts (beneath Group Name). Then click Edit.
Change outlook password - Send/Receive Settings
  • When Send/Receive Settings opens, on the left side of the page, select the email account you wish to modify the password [1]. Then click Account Properties [2].
change outlook password
  • On the Internet Email Settings, click the IMAP tab [1]. Then on the part labelled [2], enter the new email password. Finally, click Ok.
If your email is POP3, the IMAP tab may show as POP3.

Conclusion

Here you have it! I hope it has been helpful. Some key takes from the guide. To change Outlook password, you have to:
