squirrelmail change password plugin not working


Hi everyone,

I have a problem with the squirrelmail. I have a linux server in centos 6.2. After successful installation of squirrelmail (itś working), I've added the plugin ¨change_password¨. The 'change password' option is showing, but if I tried to change my password, an error 'current password' is incorrect keeps on appearing. I tried to google around, but couldn't find a solution for that.

Please help me for a tip where the problem can be. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

If you mean this plugin, then you'll need a poppassd server running, according to the plugin requirements:

thanks for your reply. It is not the plugin you wrote, it's the plugin for /etc/passwd. But I've found the solution accidentally by googling. It was the default encrypting type of the centos 6.2
