Mailbox account locked after password change

If students experiences that their mailbox are locked after they changed their password, ask them if their mailbox is also available through their other devices such as iPad, iPhone, cell phone, etc. Your SU Outlook Account will lock within 30 seconds after changing your password if the old password remains cached on any other device that is still ON.    The only way to solve your locked mailbox account problem, would be to:

Find all sources (devices) of cached passwords and sign in on that device with your new password, e.g.:

  • Cell phones: Mail and Internet browsers
  • Tablets: Mail and Internet browsers
  • Windows 7/8 go to credential manager and wipe all saved passwords
  • MacBook remove all relevant student passwords from keychain.
  • IOS (Apple/iPhone, iPad) devices should ask you to change your password for mail. If you are not asked to change password, go to Settings account, Mail, University Exchange Account to change password on the device.
  • Android won’t ask to change your password. Go to Settings account and select Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to change password on Android devices.
If you're still having problems, contact IT x4367 or Student IT x9289, mail to: student@sun.ac.za
