Plesk API not consistent with mail passwords

    I've been trying to update mail passwords programmatically using the plesk api. I noticed that I can create a mail account using the API and have an md5 hash as the password. But the api will not allow one to update the password of a mail account when the password is longer than 14 characters. Hence I cannot use an md5 hash in the update of the password.

    The issue is that all passwords in a database are stored as MD5 hashes. Hence I need to be able to update plesk mail passwords with MD5 strings.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.
