Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184355
Users must be able to change passwords from squirrelmail
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:26 EST
Description of problem:
On a stock Fedora Core 4 system + updates I am using Postfix (with virtual
users), dovecot & squirrelmail.
Dovecot's IMAP passwords are located in /etc/imap.passwd (or any other text file
which is not /etc/passwd) - that's because Postfix users are *virtual* users, so
e-mail accounts are separated from system accounts.
Various plugins for squirrelmail do exist, allowing users to change their
passwords by themselves, if passwords are stored in /etc/passwd, MySQL, LDAP, etc.
A way to change the password through the Web interface should exist, if
passwords are stored in a passwd-like text file different from /etc/passwd.
The solution should be SELinux-aware.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is a feature request for a low priority package within Fedora. If you
*really* want this feature, then you need to do the work to convince the
upstream squirrelmail project to make it standard. For this reason I am closing
this UPSTREAM. This is not Fedora's responsibility.
