My setup as below

OS : RHEL es ver 3

Sendmail 8.12

SquirellMail 1.4.5

I am using squirellmail passwd change plugin
Named change_passwd-4.0-1.2.8.

When I change passwd it is changing passwd but not
reflecting in my shadow file.

Due to this though my passwd change is working fine,
but my passwd expire config is not working.

After changeing the passwd it still shows u r passwd
going to expire on so and so date.

So I want to know any solution there in squirell mail so
the plugin help me to update my /etc/shadow file ?

    plugin modifies only /etc/shadow file. Password expiration
    date is stored in /etc/passwd.

    Try using poppassd server and change_pass plugin
