Cannot change password in Horde/IMP webmail

  1. Cannot change password in Horde/IMP webmail

    This is plesk 8.2 running on Debian.

    Attempts to change password in Horde give this result:
    "Failure in changing password on Poppassd Server: Incorrect Password"

    Attempts to change password at command prompt after telnet to localhost 106 gives this result:

    200 poppassd v1.8.5 hello, who are you?
    user test@gurffle.com
    200 Your password please.
    pass redacted
    500 Old password is incorrect.
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    It is very predictable.

    I have found that I can use popassd to change the passwords for users where their password file is in /etc/passwd.

    This is nice, but our mail password files are in:


    I have yet to find a way to make poppassd read /var/qmail/users/poppasswd

    I could try to upgrade to the current version, but frankly I am afraid to do so. Maybe I will do so when I have the machine mirrored.
