Subject: [vchkpw] chaning passwords
I'm running qmail(smtpd+pop3d)+vpopmail in my FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE system and I wanted to know if there is any possible way to give the mail users the power to change theyr virtual account password. My clients are arguing because they have to send an email to the sysadmin to change passwords and that is not convenient.
This was *JUST* discussed.... But an alternative that I use: squirrelmail+vpopmail plugin: http://www.squirrelmail.org/plugin_view.php?id=103
Thanks for your input but I wasn't explicit enough. We use a non-browsing services, it's just simple smtp/pop3 with no panels. However, this users have shell access to the server and I was thinking that maybe there were a way to modify passwords with the bin/vchangepw but when i use it as a regular user it gives me the following error (and yes the user exists):
%/usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vchangepw Please enter the email address: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [EMAIL PROTECTED] Enter old password: Please enter password for [EMAIL PROTECTED]: enter password again: Error: Illegal username %

If anyone has any light on this one i would apreciate.
