Lesson 1. Getting Started with Notes > Changing and Locking Your Password

Changing and Locking Your Password

The first time you use Lotus Notes, your system administrator will supply a password for you to use. You want to change your password so that no one else can access your mail and other databases. The ability to access information in Notes is based upon the use of your password and a file stored on your computer called your UserID file. To access information in Notes, a user needs both knowledge of the password and a copy of the UserID file on their computer. The UserID file is discussed in Appendix A, “Understanding Security and Access Rights.” Here, we discuss changing and locking your password.

A password can have any combination of keyboard characters, as long as the first character is alphanumeric and you don't use spaces. Be careful when capitalizing your password, because Notes passwords are case sensitive, and PASSWORD is different from password.
