You must enter your password when you sign on to the HomePage tools to create or manage your Web site; for other iTools services, you can have Mac OS X enter your password for you. Your password has to be between six and eight characters long, and you can use special characters if you want to. The password hint question enables you to identify yourself if you forget your password (and if you have a memory as poor as mine is, you will!). Try to use a question that you can answer only one way, such as your birth city or your mother's maiden name. After you have successfully created an account, you will see a page that provides your Member Name, Password, Email address, and Email server information. You should print this page so that you will have the information if you need to retrieve it at a later time. TIP You can also save your iTools account information page by using your browser's Save As command. In Internet Explorer, use the Web Archive option to retain the page's formatting.
