Managing Passwords
If you use internal authentication, you can quickly change an account's password from the Account’s toolbar. The user must be told the new password to log on.
Important: If Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is used for user authentication, you must disable the Change Password feature in the COS. The AD password policy is not managed by Zimbra.
If you want to make sure users change a password that you create, you can enable Must Change Password for the account. The user must change the password the next time he logs on.
Password restrictions can be set either at the COS level or at the account level. You can configure settings to require users to create strong passwords and change their passwords regularly, and you can set the parameters to lock out accounts when incorrect passwords are entered.
