First day back on the job at The Corporation, and I am unable to log in and check my email. Hilarity ensues, and over the course of a few hours it gets worked out, and I find the following email:
- The Corporate Overload Corporation <XXXXXXXXXXXX>
- Sean Conner <XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX>
- Your WIN2K Password is Expiring in 13 days
- Wed, 1 Jul 2015 10:20:03 -0500
Your password is expiring soon. If you’re in the office, you can set a new password by pressing
CTRL+ALT+DELETEand selecting "Change a password…" If you’re working remotely you can change your password by logging into Outlook Web Access (XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX) the selecting "Options" (on the top-right) -> "Change Password" (on the left menu).
If you use ActiveSync on any mobile device, be sure to update your password there as well to prevent account lockouts.
Accounts that have expired passwords will be automatically disabled. If your account is disabled, you’ll need to contact XXXXXXXXXXXX (XXXXXXXXXXXX) for support.
Niiiiiiice! My password expired right when I started my vacation, and of course, I missed the entire two week nagging process to change my password …
But now, I can't log onto the VPN because the email password is somehow tied into the network password …
