Forgetting your password and multiple entries of an incorrect password will lock you out of your Email Exchange account. This can be frustrating as it can affect your business's productivity. If this happens to you, don’t worry. You can easily unlock your Email Exchange account via your Exchange Manager.

NOTE: If you don’t have Admin Access to the Exchange Manager, please contact your organisation’s Administrator to unlock your Exchange Account for you.
