If I make a new email account I get asked for a password.

If I click Properties of an email account I cannot find where to "change a password"

How can I change the password ?

I checked Password Manager, but it does not include email passwords, only passwords for web site accounts.

--Go to Tools > Password Manager > Manage Stored Passwords
goto imap://youruserid.com ( this depends on your server setting).
and select "Remove." Click Close.
--The next time you log in, you'll be prompted for your new password. If
you want the new password to be remembered, check the box "Use Password
Manager to remember this password."


sorry for my earlier comment.

I already checked there and found nothing about changing passwords for email accounts.

Dear hansw77041

my first comment is for help to get the server type and server name.
u determine type and name then look for value like imap://username.....

in password manager, remove it and then next time u open it will ask for new password.
