When you attempt to start the Administrator program (ADMIN.EXE) from MS- DOS, the mail administrator can access the utility without being prompted for a password.
The password for the user ADMIN was changed to a blank password (no characters).
Change the password for the ADMIN account from a blank password. There are two procedures to do this:
Procedure ARun ADMIN.EXE. From the Local-Admin/Recover options, select the Administrator account (ADMIN), and recover the account using the global password.
With a blank password, the command line of:
ADMIN.EXE ADMIN -D<drive>is sufficient to gain access to the Administrator's program. For security purposes, it is recommended you have a password for the ADMIN account.
