You can't change your password just using SMTP. Use the web interface.

Well, there's your problem, then. You're exiting the subshell, not the main script.

comment Exiting a shell script with nested loops
What do you mean that "exit" doesn't really exit the script? It does, just try bash -c 'for x in y z; do exit; done; echo "This never gets printed"'.

comment How can I make Debian 8's terminal show box-drawing characters?
I don't understand how this answer is supposed to relate to the question. It appears to just be miscellaneous information about customising your prompt that doesn't have much to do with solving the OP's problem.

comment Redirect a file descriptor before execution
It's quite likely that the program in question doesn't explicitly open the FD at that time, it opens it dynamically after execution, and just picks the next free FD.

comment SliTaz, usb stick, unable to mount iso or to find a filesystem on it rootfs.gz
Flash drives don't have such a concept of a "native file system", so I'm not sure what saying that they don't like to be changed from it is supposed to mean, since filesystems are completely transparent to the flash drive. Flash drives operate at the block level.

comment Version Magic in Linux?
@solsTiCe blkid is Linux specific, which is why I preferred to mention something more generalisable (MBR + fdisk). But sure, blkid is also quite capable. :-)
