Required email password update

To ensure the security of our email platform, we will periodically require password resets for mailboxes with weak or compromised passwords. When this happens, we reach out to the impacted end-users on your behalf and notify you before we do so.

How do forced password resets work?

Impacted users will be placed in a “password reset state” over 30 days. Within this 30-day state, three email notifications will be sent to affected users to encourage a password change that meets our requirements.

If users do not change their passwords within the 30 days, their email service is suspended. The suspension will prevent them from sending email via webmail or through a mail client; they will still be able to receive mail. 

For Webmail Users

When logging in to webmail, customers will be redirected to the password reset page to encourage the customer to update the password. They will not be able to access their services until they do so.

What are the password requirements?

To ensure our overall mail security, we now require all mailboxes to have a password that the following requirements:

  • minimum of ten characters
  • at least one number
  • at least one capital letter
  • at least one symbol or special character (e.g. !@#$)

What notices are sent to end-users?

Enom will send out three notices to all mailbox holders with weak passwords. These emails will be sent in English, and they will reflect your reseller brand name and support email address.
