mail-)user passwords from command line (cli), not by web interface

    Is it possible to set (or just change) the password of an existing user on the command line? I haven't found a reference to this.

    Reason: I want to change the password for a lot of users and it would be a real pain to do this by the web interface.

    (As far as i found, the passwords are stored encrypted within the database, so it seems to be no option to change the settings on mysql level...)

    Hints are welcome ;-).

    The passwords of mail users in ISPConfig 2 are stored in the file /etc/shadow, so you can use the Linux passwd command to change them.
