Hello,

Is there a nice app to run agains my /etc/shadow and test the passwords of my users?
It would be nice to send a mail to the users that are using passwords like 123456

Why not use cracklib?

It's good at checking a large number of users for simple passwords. For purposes other than that, it's slow.
