    Default User directly changing password: Possible?

    Hi all,

    I just want to throw this question after searching in the forum (maybe i missed it?) if its possible for the user to change their password, if they are not using a web UI?

    We have a group of users within our company that will not use the webUI (since no Internet browser is installed in their machine), but would want to change their password on their own.

    How is this possible? Or not possible at all?

    I would appreciate feedback and assistance on this matter.

    Thanks so much in advance.

    Seems no one could help your case... actually sometimes the ppl here would not giving hand to others if they are not interested in your questions or just think that your problem is not able to be fixed~ (like my asked questions)

    I am not sure, but I think the only way for the users to change their password without using the web browser is, accessing the mail server via ssh or telnet, and then changing their own password manually by using zm command! But it's not easy for the users~ So the most simple way would be through the GUI~
    OS=Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
    Current: Release 5.0.10_GA_2638.UBUNTU8 UBUNTU8 FOSS edition
    OS=openSUSE 10.3
    Current: Release 5.0.2_GA_1975.openSUSE_10.2_20080130231825 UNKNOWN FOSS edition
    Prior: Release 4.5.6_GA_1044.SuSE10_20070706142147 openSUSE_10.2 FOSS edition

    Thanks for the reply wcbenyip.

    It's also what I have in mind. Although the reason why I was asking it is for now, the server specs would not be able to handle Web access. It's only by e-mail client.

    Thanks once again.

    Default This is how we do it...

    We authenticate all of our Zimbra users through Active Directory. Users can then change their password from any machine that is part of the Windows Domain.

    Regards,

    Bob
