As part of our ongoing campaign against abuse and to ensure the security of our users' email services, we are planning to impose a stricter password policy for email accounts hosted with us. As a result of this change, the system will no longer allow passwords of the type that could be deemed vulnerable to sabotage attempts. Email account passwords must fulfill the following criteria henceforth -

1. The password must contain at least 8 characters (and can be up to 32 characters long).
2. The password can not contain the email prefix in its exact form. For instance, if your email address were john@yourdomain.com, then your password can not contain the word john.
3. The password must contain at least one alphabet (a-z in upper or lowercase), and at least one numeral (0-9).

If you do not change your password then the password will be reset and a new password will be sent to your alternate email address.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact our support team and we'd be happy to answer your queries.
