Changing your password for DMS Web, Zimbra and Forums
When changing your password or resetting to your Default password, we recommend you follow this procedure BEFORE completing a password reset or change to avoid being locked out by your mobile devices.
Computers or mobile devices (cell phones, iPhone, iPad, tablets) that are set to automatically check for mail at regular intervals rather than using the “Manual check for mail” setting, WILL continue to try to access the systems with the incorrect password and lock your account. Even one single device at home, or in a drawer will lock you out if you forget it.
Preparation for changing or resetting a password
You MUST disable the Mail accounts on ALL mobile devices prior to resetting or changing your UNANet login password. This procedure would be best practice.
**NOTE: Alternately, you can shut down or turn off your device completely, however, should your device NOT shut completely down, you may still experience a full UNANet account lockout.
Disable a Mail account on Apple iOS device (iPhone or iPad)
- Launch Settings from your Home screen.
- Scroll down and tap on Mail.

- Select the email account you want to disable.
- Toggle Mail off.
Disable a Mail account on Android devices:
