To ensure the security of email accounts, system administrators can specify minimum requirements for user passwords. For example, by requiring passwords that include both uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, administrators can ensure users don't use weak passwords.

Follow these steps to configure the password requirements for user accounts:

  1. Log in to SmarterMail as the system administrator
  2. Click the Security icon
  3. Expand the Advanced Settings folder and click Password Requirements in the navigation pane. The password requirement settings will load in the content pane
  4. In the Minimum Password Length field, type the minimum number of characters the password must have
  5. To specify additional requirements, select the appropriate checkboxes. All other settings are optional
  6. Click Save
