A security feature was added to Microsoft Mail version 3.0 that requires you to type in your current password before you can enter a new password using the Change Password command in the Mail menu. After pressing the OK button, another dialog box will appear asking you to enter the new password again to verify it.

Using Mail version 2.0, users are not protected from having their passwords inadvertently changed after logging onto their mail accounts. The user is not required to enter the old password before entering the new one or to type the new password twice to verify that it was spelled correctly.
