Hello Barry, If you have root access to the server why not just edit the "mailusers.tab" file?
That file will be located in: /var/MailRoot/ Normally, and find the line that looks a like this: "mydomain.com"<TAB>"username"<TAB>"0401080c0b"<TAB>7<TAB>"usernamedirectory"<TAB>"U"<NEWLINE> The "0401080c0b" password is admin in plain text ;-) Once you have done that you may need to restart xmail server... this should do it: /etc/init.d/xmail restart Hope that helps :-) Benjamin. --- On Fri, 8/3/13, Barry Kavanagh <barry.kavan...@onaitech.com> wrote: > From: Barry Kavanagh <barry.kavan...@onaitech.com> > Subject: [xmail] User password > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Date: Friday, 8 March, 2013, 14:00 > I have an old Xmail server running on > a Gentoo Vmware box with full root > access.I want to send a mail as user15 but can't remember > the password.I > have very basic Linux :( I am trying to reset the password > for user15 > > I have tried entering say "user15" "XYZ" and saving the file > but it does not > work. > > How do I successfully reset this Xmail user password when > the server has no > X server and no web admin. > > _______________________________________________ > xmail mailing list > email@example.com > http://xmailserver.org/mailman/listinfo/xmail > _______________________________________________ xmail mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://xmailserver.org/mailman/listinfo/xmail
