Passwords are managed on the mail provider's site. TB, or any other email program, just applies the password that is determined elsewhere. 'Changing' a password in TB means editing the one stored in Options after it is officially changed with the provider.

Did you change the password in TB Tools/Options/Security/Passwords/Saved passwords, show passwords, right-click the entries for incoming and outgoing, Edit Password?
