Default Letting users change the email password?

Is there anyway for an email user (no admin or client) to change their email password?
I'm using on my system ISPconfig with UebiMiau as webmail, and the only way to change the password for a user is to login as admin (or client) on ISPconfig, and change it for them. (this way the admin or client will always know the password of the user!)

Can it be done an other way?

Yes, enable the Mailuser interface for the web site in question, and then go to http(s)://www.example.com:81/mailuser/ and log in with the user's username and password. The user can then change the password.

Default http(s)://www.example.com:81/mymailuser/

OSuse 10.3, followed the detailed documentation for system deployment and ispconfig configuration, everything works, but users changing passwords feature don't.


-https://ns2.domain.com:81/mymailuser/

says:

The requested URL /mailuser/ was not found on this server.

don't know what could be wrong.. any help/idea.. ??

~/ispconfig/httpd/logs #error.log
File does not exist: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/mymailuser/

/var/log/apache2/error_log --> doesn't say anything

thank you

It must be https://ns2.domain.com:81/mailuser, not https://ns2.domain.com:81/mymailuser... Please don't replace the string "mailuser" with the actual user name...
