How do I change my email password on my Galaxy S3?

I have recently changed my email password from my Laptop and am now trying to change it on my S3 (the account was already on there before). However, no matter what I try, it refuses to let me change it. I got as far as accessing exchange server settings from email settings and typing in the new correct password but constantly keep getting the error message of setup could not finish unable to connect to server.

If you have tried doing that several times and it still does not work, it is best to just try removing the email account completely first and then installing it back again with the new password. This is definitely much faster because you don't need to remove anything and you just need to input the new password as you set it up.

Unable to update one bit of email account info?

I can get to the settings and SEE the error, but it does not let me EDIT that setting to correct it.

This causes problems because when I send emails to other people from my phone, if they click Reply, it goes to the incorrect comast.net address.
