Secure Email Passwords

Starting on March 1, Nerds On Site will begin requiring strong passwords for all of it\’s email accounts. This means that when a client logs into their webmail system, the webmail interface will prompt them to reset their password if it isn\’t already secure.
A strong email password will make it much harder to a hacker to guess your password, and very difficult and time consuming for someone to ‘brute-force’. (Brute-forcing a password is done by building a computer program to guess thousands of passwords.)
Looking for help creating a secure password? At Nerds On Site, we have a minimum requirement for our client’s email passwords. We require that your password be at least 8 characters long, and contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter and one number. This should be treated as a base minimum, and stronger passwords are certainly recommended. The Gibson Research Corporation has a free secure password tool, which you can use here:
