Well, the thing is I don't have access to vpopmail directly - my web hosting service controls that. And I want the actual mailbox user to be able to change their own password. I went to the qmailadmin page and the demo showed an interface that looked more like an administrator interface rather than a mailbox user interface - which I already have from my hosting provider. Did I miss something? Any other ideas?
Thanks..

I manage a new virtual web site and email service for our church, and our web hosting company uses qmail and vpopmail for virtual mail administration. I'm looking for a way to allow the people I have created mailboxes for to change their own passwords, set up forwarding and vacation messages without asking me to do it for them. I would like to do this with a browser interface, and I expect to write one myself. I have figured out how to manipulate the correct ../auth files with a new MD5 password, but I can't sort out how to authenticate the user against that MD5 file in the first place before we change it. If anyone has either an idea on how I can do my own authentication, or if there is a package I can install to simplify my life for ens user password maintenance, I'm all ears. Thanks in advance... Jim *********************************************** Jim, I'm not sure if this is an option for you but have you looked at qmailadmin? It can be found at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/qmailadmin/ and plugs right into vpopomail. It would accomplish everything you listed above and is brand-able for your church to boot.
