Hello, @PunkinPie1953.

If you're using your Mac's Mac Mail application, you may need to ensure the server settings are correct. You can find the step by step instructions for how to set it up properly in this article, and selecting the program you use for receiving email on your device from the drop down.

If not, let us know more about how you receive your emails, so we can help.

            "To unlock it,reset your password (FL001)"

Step 5. I click the rest your password hyperlink
