Rainmail Server User Guide
Change User Password

Rainmail Server provides a Single sign-on system, that can be integrated with external authentication sources like Microsoft Active Directory. Single sign-on system means that users can use the same account name and password to access the different facilities offered. When integrated with an external system, Rainmail picks up user and authentication information from the specified source. When used in stand alone mode, Rainmail Server's internal database is used to provide Single sign-on. In stand alone mode, user's can change their password as follows:

  1. Click on the Change User Password in the home page.

  1. That will bring up the following page.

  1. In User name field, enter the full Email address. Domain part of the Email address can be chosen from the Drop down.
  2. In Current Password field, enter password associated with the account.
  3. Please note that weak passwords are not allowed to be set. Rainmail Server has a default cracker database and does not allow any password in the database to be set. Passwords must be at least 6 characters long and must not be a dictionary word. Account names must not be part of the password.
  4. Ideal password must be one with a combination of alphabetic and numeric characters (e.g., x24a12ta)
  5. In New Password field, enter the new password to be set.
  6. Since entered passwords are not visible in the screen, Rainmail requires the new password to be entered twice. Enter the new password to be set in Confirm Password field.
  7. Click on "Change"
  8. If the password is changed successfully, a message as below will be given

  1. Password changes take effect immediately.
  2. If the password is weak or if an external authentication mechanism (like ADS) is enabled, user gets the following error message

  1. In this case, user should try a stronger password to set.
