A simpler solution is to build vpopmail with clear text passwords and
learning passwords.  The first time they pop in, it will learn their pop
password, and put it into a clear text field as well as an encrypted
field.  Makes it easier for Help Desk people.

Current accounts are in post.office on an NT machine. Software.com sold 
out a couple of years ago and the new company dropped post.office. Every

day that goes by makes me more anxious.

I've spent time looking at the passwords in post.office (and archives 
and google and ...) and haven't found any way to convert. My current 
plan is using a sniffer and putting usernames and passwords into a file,

and then ramming them through vaddsuser.

I looked at this long enough to determine it wouldn't work with 
post.office passwords.

I'll look for the post. Thanks for the response.
