How are they changing their passwords? Through (secure) Webmail? You can't disallow that.

I agree we as admins should be able to disallow users to change their own passwords. Before long they all have '123' as password, while I want to enforce a strong password policy.

Anyways: currently not possible.

If you know basic PHP / HTML you should be able to simply edit default/passwordEdit.php and express/ files. Just look for the HTML for the password edit and comment it out replacing it with a note that passwords cannot be changed due to administrative reasons. If you need help with this, feel free to PM me.

We bind our Kerio accounts to our Open Directory. In OD we can set the password policies. Also, although I think there is a way to do it, I have never been able to change an OD user password via webmail. If you have any OS X servers, setting up OD is fairly easy.
I imagine the functionality is similar when binding to Active Directory, but likely more expensive and more difficult. ;-)

When I try to change the password via HTTP it says it's not supported, and to use HTTPS. If I use reverse proxy and connect HTTPS and redirect to Kerio on HTTP, then I block the ability of users to change their password while still using encryption.

The change password box just comes up blank this way. It does not say to use HTTPS.
