I need to use a certain email account managed by a server I don't have access to. I have the credentials, I can log in using a client such as Mozilla Thunderbird or Evolution. However, I was not able to change my password.
Surprisingly I didn't find any guides to do this. All tutorials on changing password, such as this one for Thunderbird:
> Options > Security > Passwords > Saved Passwords > Edit
Don't work for me. Furthermore the UI seems to indicate that what is meant by "changing of password" is just an update of the locally cached credentials - as in a password manager.
The fact that all tutorials suggest this same procedure and that I did not find any solution suggest that I am doing something very unusual.
Some manipulations of remote e-mail accounts are clearly standardized - this is why I can use different clients, such as Thunderbird or Evolution to fetch my mails.
Is also password setting standardized, or is it something that depends on the particular mail server implementation and therefore is not supported in the most common e-mail clients?
Or Am I just missing something?
