Updating Your Exchange Credentials on OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

OS X 10.6

Overview -

When you change your NetID password, you also need to update the passwords saved for Mail, iCal, and Address Book. You will need to open each application and update the password there.

Note: If you have OS X 10.7 (Lion) or 10.8 (Mountain Lion), you should instead use this procedure: Updating Your Exchange Credentials on OS X 10.7 (Lion) and 10.8 (Mountain Lion)

Note: This documentation provides the steps for an existing Exchange account to be updated with new password information. It assumes an Exchange account has been set up previously in Mail, iCal, and Address Book. If you need assistance with initial setup of an Exchange Account please see Configuring Exchange for Mail App on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6)
