Can't change email password

I am trying to change the password on one of my sub accounts.  I get to the screen, enter the email and click change password.  I answer the security questions and get to this page I enter my new password twice using the requested characters and it just hangs there.  My password isn't changed and the page doesn't do anything.  I need to get into this email for work.

We're here to help get your email password changed, @pstarling1220.


To start, the first thing we recommend doing to get your password changed is following our guide to reset your email password. You can do this by following these easy steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Select Forgot password?
  3. Fill out the password info.
  4. Choose security questions or temporary password and follow the prompts. If you choose a temporary password, we’ll let you know where we sent it.
  5. Create your new password.

If you're still encountering the same problem after following these instructions, we have a few steps we recommend trying to resolve the 'hanging' issue you're experiencing.

  • Clear your cache & cookies- this is a common fix that can help resolve many problems
  • Use a different browser- web pages operate slightly differently depending on which web browser you use. If one doesn't work, try another!

Let us know how these steps work for you!
