Prevent simple passwords issue...

Post by webequipped » Mon May 16, 2005 1:50 pm

Great feature, impossible to enforce with ME....

Seams that users can log in through the webmail facility and totally circumvent this policy as the webmail facility does not enforce (where is the scripting for this?) the policy password complexity. I just tested this myself as was able to enter a very simply password.

Also, we did not start out with this simple password policy, we added the enforcement later. Several accounts we tested after the enforcement still allowed us to log in with our very simple passwords as if the policy wasn't even there.

Will this be fixed in the next release?

Hi,

If you have Mailbox's that already exist and then you go and enable the simple password option it will only come into effect if you change the exisiting password for the mailbox to a password that is not simple. It will still allow the mailbox's with existing simple passwords to login to Webmail until you change it to a complex password.

regards,
