Hi there,

I had something go horribly wrong with a users vacation reply (setup 
with websieve through squirrelmail). Basically it went through every 
email in her entire mailbox (not just her inbox, we're talking thousands 
  and thousands of emails), and replied to each message as if she were 
just receiving it, with a vacation notice. I was trying to fix it as it 
was happening, but couldn't figure out how to stop it. What I realize 
now I should have done was change her ldap password, and log into 
squirrelmail filtering and changed her vacation settings (and see what 
the heck they were set to), but I would want a way to switch back her 
password after I was done. Is there any way to temporarily change 
someone's ldap password?
