With MySQL or PostgreSQL backends, you can generate a password hash first, then replace old one with this newly generated one.

For example:

  • Generate a salted MD5 password hash with openssl (password in plain text is 123456 in below case):
Terminal:
$ openssl passwd -1 123456
$1$2dQ48hyz$.mCLeDSdPkP3fxVmARsB.0
  • Replace password for user 'user@domain.ltd':
Terminal:
mysql> USE vmail;
mysql> UPDATE mailbox SET password='$1$2dQ48hyz$.mCLeDSdPkP3fxVmARsB.0' WHERE username='user@domain.ltd';

With OpenLDAP backend, you can reset it with phpLDAPadmin, choose SSHA please.
