The LN Client password allows access by using the user.id file that is stored on your computer. Therefore, if this password is changed on one computer, the change will not be effective on another computer. Your LN Client password must be changed separately on each computer on which you use the LN Client.
We recommend changing your LN Internet password each time you change your LN Client password, just for the sake of convenience. It will be easier to remember the passwords if you keep both passwords the same. However, they may be different if you so choose. These instructions explain how to change the password that is used to access your e-mail through an Internet browser (using iNotes) or another e-mail program (such as Outlook or Thunderbird).
*** NEVER FORGET YOUR PASSWORDS!!! ***
Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure (locked) place. We CANNOT look up your Lotus Notes passwords – they are encrypted. If you forget your LN Client password, the only way to regain access to your LN files via the Client is to obtain your original LN Client user.id file and use your original password. This will only allow you to access your files using LN Client software.If you ever forget your LN Client password, you will need to contact CTC Network Services to obtain your original user.id file. A copy has been kept in a secure location by the CTC. However, if for some reason your original user.id file is lost or damaged, you will NEVER be able to recover your LN files!! SO... we strongly suggest to never forget your password! If you ever forget your LN Internet password, in order to be able to access your LN files or e-mail through the Internet, you will need to use the LN Client to reset the LN Internet password. If you do not have access to the LN Client, you will need to contact the CTC HelpDesk to have your LN Internet password reset - it also cannot be looked up.
