It's our organizations policy to have the IT department change staff usernames & passwords in order to maintain accurate records. Is it possible to disable the option for users to change their KMS password via webmail?

We also assign our users passwords. What I've done is delete the passwordEdit.php file in /usr/local/kerio/mailserver/webmail/default.
When users click on the Change Password button they get a page not found error, not pretty but it works. You have to remember to do that everytime you upgrade KMS as the updater automatically places a copy of that file.
I wish there was an admin option to disallow user changing of passwords.

Me too.
I've found it the only way to enforce strong passwords. Users themselves just revert back to 12345 as soon as they get a chance.

If deleting the file works, couldn't you just create your own "passwordEdit.php" which has a user friendly message that says something to the effect of "To change your password, please contact the IT Department at Ext. XXXX"?
