I'm trying to change my password from webmail, but it always fail with the error message "New password is invalid". I logged on with ssh and issued the command "passwd" to change it. I used the exact same password and it successfully changed. I thought this problem were fixed in previous versions.

The debug log does not reveal anything special.


[21/Jan/2008 12:39:20][14815] {auth} Changing password for user test<_a.t_>, type=2
[21/Jan/2008 12:39:20][14815] {auth} PAM change password started: user=test service=keriomail
[21/Jan/2008 12:39:20][14815] {auth} system-auth: Starting authentication for user test
[21/Jan/2008 12:39:20][14815] {auth} Trying to change PAM password for user test<_a.t_>keriomail

The message log in linux says something like "pam user 'test' granted access".

Can anyone shed some light on this? Is it possible to get this working at all?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 4 (Update 4).

Edit: I installed Kerio Mail Server on my desktop computer with Mandriva 2007 and it works. Very strange since the system requirements said "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 / 4 / 5".
