I just had a security issue which caused me to have all my users forceably change their passwords on my domain. Is there an easy way to change Kerio email passwords...i.e., by user or one global command?..or must I touch each user account and then relay that information to each user?

If you use the local user database, it would have to be done manually per account.

You might consider an Active Directory setup for your domain/e-mail server. That way you have a lot more options for controlling passwords and user access.

My users have access up to a dozen different applications/systems requiring login. (workstation, intranet, e-mail, IM, phone system, network backup, CRM tools just to name a few...) All but one uses Active Directory for authoritization. That way I only have 2 stops to make in order to "adjust" access/passwords/etc across my entire scope of applications I support. I'm glad Kerio is one of the AD compliant programs. I've been pushing the one that stands out to update their application, hopefully soon that way I'll have only one place needed for user authority control.
