A note about e-mail and account passwords

Passwords for your computer accounts and e-mail accounts are currently held on two different systems [at the moment] that get synchronized every hour. This means that if you changed your password on your computer with "yppasswd", this change will not propagate to your e-mail account for at most one half-hour.
