    Password problem

    Hello! It's Alexey86. I've recently got a message that I have to create a new password after 180 days of using the previous one. I did that but forgot to save it. Would you send me an email with my new password, please?

    Sending a password is very likely impossible. In a properly configured Unix system even the sysadmin with root access cannot see users' passwords. Use the "forgot password" tool.

    We can't see passwords. I can save a temporary one and send it to you. Use it, then change it.

    I have sent you an email from a usingenglish.com email. If you can't see it in your inbox, check your spam as it's unsolicited.
