Password expired for account

When connecting to my account, I'm being prompted over and over again for my password. I fill it in but it does not accept it.

How can I connect to my account again?

Change your password by logging on to the website

Outlook on the Web buttonIn order to recover, you can logon to your account via the web and change your password. Then go back to Outlook and provide your new password when prompted.

Still can’t logon after password change?

If you still can’t logon to your account after a password change, check whether you have Two-Step Authentication enabled. If so, you might need a special App Password instead of your regular password to logon to your account from within Outlook.
