The password for you netid account is kept in sync with SUmail for SUmail users. When you change your password using http://netid.syr.edu, the new password will be pushed to SUmail within 15 minutes. We don't recommend that students and alumni change their SUmail password using the "change password" feature within SUmail; this will cause the netid password and SUmail password to get out of sync, and the SUmail password will get overwritten the next time you change your netid password.
Note that the netid password must be 8 characters long to sync properly with your SUmail account.
For help with SUmail password problems, call the ITS Help Desk at (315) 443-2677 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
