Default how do I change a password on K9 mail?

I am required to reset the password on my email account at regular periods-can I just update it in K9 as well, or do I have to recreate the account every time? I did it on the stock email app, but could not find where to access the password again in K9.

I've just had a quick look and didn't find a way to edit the password, I think it's just a case of deleting the existing email account and add it again using your new password.

I just figured it out. Wow its a pain in the ass, they really need to rework their settings.


Menu > more > Settings > Account Settings.
Go into Fetching Mail – Incoming Server – and change the password there.
Then go back, and into Sending Mail, down to Outgoing Server – and change the password in there.

Done!

Thanks big time! It would have taken me forever to find that...

Default Samsung SIII K-9 Change password method

Hi,

The method mentioned earlier didn't work for me using Icecream Sandwich on Samsung S3 using K-9 4.011.
What I did that DID work:
. Go to Account list in K-9
. Long tap on the Gmail (in this case) account
. A menu pops up, which includes "Account settings"
. Under there, the sections "Fetching mail" and "Sending mail" have places
for setting the password.
