Retrieving a Lost Password

If you forget or do not have your password, and the feature is enabled on the system you are using, then you may choose to reset your password. With this option, a link to reset your password will be emailed to you after you make the request. This link is valid for 24 hours. Once you click the link, a new password will be generated and emailed to you. If you have provided an alternate email address (see the Email Address Options section of this documentation), it will be sent there. Otherwise, it will be sent to your main email address, which is derived from your user ID. If you requested a password reset and no email from the system has arrived after 30 minutes, then check your email program’s junk mail folder in case the email was delivered there. Typically, the email is sent within a few seconds of the request, but sometimes there can be a delay on behalf of some recipient email servers.
