- POPPASSWD is a password changer for POP users. The POPPASSWD protocol
was first included into Eudora by Steve Dorner as a way to let users who
have no other access to a mail server change their password. It's not a
particularly brilliant package, but it does solve a distinct problem that
non-shell users have.
- Created by Joel Snyder (Opus One) and Ehud Gavron (WetWork).
- Availability and Status
version of the POPPASSWD daemon (v2.1) is available, courtesy of
Dave Sims of Schlumberger. A newer version (v2.3) is also available which has
additional features, including breakin detection, password expiration
support, and breakin avoidance and tighter
integration with the VMS security subsystem. You can read the
notes and contact us
if you'd like to license it for your site.
- POPPASSWD is also built into Innosoft's PMDF package, so if you have
PMDF, you probably don't need this.
