My Homestead email isn't working.  When I login, I get the error message:

Login failed.  Please check username and password and try again.

My username and password has not changed.  I get this error message on my laptop when I try to directly login to the email account as well as on my iPhone.  What is going on and what do I need to do??

Thanks,

Kim

The system changed your password automatically because it appears you email address was compromised and used to send out a huge amount of spam. You will want to run an antivirus program on all computers that are used to check email, then change the email password to one that has never been used before. if you use the old one, the spammers will cause this again.

How do I change my password?  I don't see that option.  On Open Xchange Server, it only gives me username and password....there's no box to change password.
