I have a low traffic email server running sendmail and imap. A user (the wife) has not used her account on that server for over a year, but needs it now, and cannot remember the password. Its been so long since I set up passwords for this server that I do not remember how to reset a password.

There is a password for sending mail thru sendmail, and another for fetching mail thru imap. We always make them both the same. The configuration is:

Linux eli 3.10.17-gentoo
mail-mta/sendmail 8.14.9
dev-libs/cyrus-sasl 2.1.26-r9
net-mail/uw-imap 2007f-r1
sys-auth/pambase 20150213-r2
sys-libs/pam 1.3.0-r2
virtual/pam 0-r1

Yech! 7 things that might have an effect on the answer! :x

Anyway, can somebody point me to someplace that might help me reset her password?

Thanks! :D

Solved the problem. I just changed the user's password with "passwd <username>" from root. I had tried that earlier and it didn't work, but I must have typoed something (caps lock?) because it worked ok this time.

Sorry to bother you all. :oops:
