Webmin automatic password generator

..... Answer not found yet for this one:

I have webmin's automatic password generator enabled.. So when a webmin user creates a new system user (e.g. an new email account), it spits out a password to use.


Only thing is, my users will revolt if I try to require they use the automatic password which is like 12 or so characters long with a miz of cAsE and numbers.

I can't seem to find anywhere I could go in and tweak this.. to say, all lowercase, and say, 8 characters.

Anyone find an answer to this one?

Webmin 1.10 on redhat 9.0

THANKS in advance!
