Description Razvan Sandu 2006-03-08 01:04:24 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.

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.
