Welcome, I am Cory. Thank you for asking your question today.

You should not get an email provider asking you for your password. When you get emails like this, it is usually a scammer trying to access your account.

They scare you into thinking it is a storage, billing or password ***** in order to get access. I would not respond to it.

If you would like me to connect remotely and look at it, I can.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

This looks like an email from someone on the staff of University of Missouri. His account was probably hacked and sent out a bunch of emails to try to get your information.
