The Outlook 2007 interface has not changed as dramatically as some other elements of the Office suite.

Microsoft Office 2007 features a completely different design for the Office user interface--something that hasn't been done by Microsoft for the Office suite in a very long time. This redesign contains many menu options that have changed locations or become otherwise obscured for users familiar with the "classic" Office user interface. If you have been unable to find the location to change your password in Outlook 2007, you may be surprised to learn that this is one aspect of the Office interface that has changed little.

Click the "Tools" menu at the top of the window, then click the "Account Settings" menu item below it.

Use the "Name" column to identify the email account with which you will be working. Select that account, then click the "Change" button. The "Change E-mail Account" window opens.

Remove any text or asterisks currently in the "Password" box, then type the password that you would like to use. If you use the same password for your incoming and outgoing mail servers (as is the case with most email accounts), this completes the process. Click "Next" and "Finish." Do not click "Next" or "Finish" if you use different passwords. Continue to the next step.

Click the "More Settings" button in the bottom-right corner of the window.

Select the tab labeled "Outgoing Server." Select the "Log on using" radio button if you use different passwords for incoming and outgoing mail. Enter the new password in the box labeled "Password."

Click "OK," then click "Next" and "Finish" to save your settings.
