Hi,

I am not sure if AD support this, but if you can run a script on Linux once a user change the Password in AD, than you can change user password easily.

I am not aware of the setup you have nor i hae experince on qmail and AD , but as programmer, I am sure that when you change AD password you can have some sort of event capturing, you need to trigger a script that change the Virtual password.

Also, I am interesting to know how you set those thing, as I am also looking for same solution for my company
If you can help me setting up that, thanks

SFU 3.5 it`s a archive....about 220MB...in that archieve you have a setup.exe...after you install that in administrative tools you will have "Service for Unix Administration"......you can syncronize password but first you must have NIS on Linux server and Pam ........but slackware doesn`t have pam from default because before slackware have a big bug with pamm authentification


still working to see how to configure NIS
