The primary is the only legitimate mailbox now so yes the changes to the password for that apply to any alias of it.

Thanks for the info and the link etc... however (and I did warn I wasn't very familiar with all this!!)
Quite rightly if I logon to my account and then go to my services... I can see the relevant email address (as originally supplied pipex many moons ago), I have (and logon to webmail) using an alias . My question is- if I change the password on original is it automatically replicated to the alias etc.
Apologies if being thick but understandably don't want to change a password and then find I've managed to lock myself out etc.

You can either login to MyAccount and go to My Services then manage mail and change the password of the relevant email address in there or you can if you have set it up use the password reset tool.

The TT608 error is detection of multiple concurrent logins or attempted logins to your mailbox from geographically distanced locations.
A potential sign of a compromised mailbox but can be caused if the user's devices are signed in via distanced access points. i.e. a false positive for hacking.
So if you sign out of all devices, scan devices to ensure they're clean of viruses, trojans and password grabbing malware and then change your password using the Forgotten password button in the help page Changing your email password preferably using a reset code of 6 digits sent to your recovery mobile number. A hacker wouldn't physically have your mobile to know you're changing the password.
Just use TalkTalk Mail webmail for the time being.
