To make a little how to for other users:

apt-get install poppassd (courierpassd, is not necessary)

probally openbsd-inetd will be installed too

/etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart

Now check if the deamon is there

root@server:/etc# netstat -lnpt | grep 106
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 15716/inetd

If everything is ok, then continue if not fix that first

Go to the plugins directory of squirrelmail

cd /var/www/web3/web/plugins/

Download the squirrelmail change_pass pluging from:


untar it using tar xvfz change_pass-2.7a-1.4.x.tar.gz

chown the unpacked files to the default of your webiste (check wit ls -ltrh)

chown root:web3 change_pass/ -R

Change the squirellmail config file

vim /var/www/web3/web/config/config.php and add the new plugin tot the current list of plugins. Save the file

Als should be fine for now.

Try to change password using the squirellmail webinterface
