Thread: Apple mail

  1. #1
    Apple mail
    I'll start here in macOS.

    My default mac email address is my old work email and I want to change it. I need to log into it but my password for SCH@$#$&#.com isn't working and maybe I forgot? Yikes, how can I handle this?

    Is there an option to Reset Password or Forgotten Password?

    If it is your "old work email" is there a need for you to keep it? By that, I mean could you not simply create a new one? Is there a specific need to retain an old work email rather than have a new personal one?

    Are you saying, you created an Apple/iCloud ID using your work email address?

    Or is it an old work email address you are using with Apple Mail, and you want to change to a new email provider?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Good point, Bob. I assumed it was not connected to an Apple ID which, if it is, could make things easier perhaps.

    Let's see what the OP says.

    WldMtn, if you as old as me, perhaps your work email is your Apple ID. Mine is a Gmail address because in those days there was no @icloud.com.
    So, some clarification please.
