Question Change Passwd Format


Dear Friends ,

Normaily we create a user and the user's password as the following command :
"useradd" and "passwd username" .
Normally I know this passwd is in "md5" mode . But If I want to change
this passwd mode Like change it into "LDAP" , "SASL" ,"PAM or Courier" then
How can I change my passwd .

Or, How can I make a user with the LDAP PAM or SASL passwd facility .
Waiting for ur reply ... ...

Are you simply trying to change the encryption method for the password? What is the reason---ie what is wrong with the current method?

I am not aware of any options to change the password encryption method

I don't know what this means.
