    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64
    squirrelmail 1.4.11
    poppassd 1.8.5


    On running;
    $ poppassd
    200 poppassd v1.8.5 hello, who are you?
    user satimis
    200 Your password please.
    pass satpass
    200 Your new password please.
    newpass satnewpass
    500 Server error, password not changed


    In another case;
    $ poppassd
    200 poppassd v1.8.5 hello, who are you?
    user userA
    200 Your password please.
    pass userApass
    500 Old password is incorrect.


    poppassd was installed on repo with;
    $ sudo apt-get install poppassd


    $ cat /etc/pam.d/poppassd
    @include common-auth
    @include common-password


    $ locate common-auth
    /etc/pam.d/common-auth
    /usr/share/pam/common-auth
    /usr/share/pam/common-auth.md5sums


    $ locate common-password
    /etc/pam.d/common-password
    /usr/share/pam/common-password
    /usr/share/pam/common-password.md5sums


    $ cat /etc/pam.d/common-auth
    auth required pam_unix.so nullok_secure


    $ cat /usr/share/pam/common-auth
    auth required pam_unix.so nullok_secure


    $ cat /etc/pam.d/common-password
    password required pam_unix.so nullok obscure min=4 max=8 md5


    $ cat /usr/share/pam/common-password
    password required pam_unix.so nullok obscure min=4 max=8 md5


    $ locate pam_unix.so
    /lib/security/pam_unix.so
    /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpam.so.0/security/pam_unix.so
    /usr/local/src/vmware-server-distrib-1.0.4-56528/lib/lib/libpam.so.0/security/pam_unix.so

    pam_unix.so found


    Please advise how to fix the problem. TIA
