squirrelmail change password plugin not working on ubuntu 12.04

I've installed squirrelmail 1.4.22 on ubuntu server 12.04 and it's working fine. Now I want the users to be able to change their password. I've installed the plugin change_passwd 4.0-1.2.8 and it seemed to be working, but when an user login & try to change their password, an error massage: "An error has occurred while attempting to change your password. Please contact your system administrator."

Does someone know where the error can be and how to solve it?

Run the following,
tail -f /var/log/auth.log
while attempting to change the password. Does it show you an error to indicate the problem?
