I wanted to have a minimal and simple possibility to let the users change their passwords themselfs for zarafa. Best would be to have it as a webpage. I found a nice discussion about it here. Thus the php code from samu is made for Zarafa 6, I can validate that it is also working in version 7.1.5 beta, thanks to the stable mapi-api the script is using.

I just took the code and pasted it into a php file like mentioned in the post. The easiest solution for me was to put it in /usr/share/zarafa-webapp to have it available as https://host/webapp/change_password.php. Working perfectly. Thanks to samu for sharing it.

 Attention: If a user changes his password by this script, imap feature is getting disabled for him.

The script for documentation purpose:



$username = isset($_POST["username"])?$_POST["username"]:null;
$fullname = isset($_POST["fullname"])?$_POST["fullname"]:null;
$password = isset($_POST["password"])?$_POST["password"]:null;
$newpassword = isset($_POST["newpassword"])?$_POST["newpassword"]:null;
$newpassword2 = isset($_POST["newpassword2"])?$_POST["newpassword2"]:null;

if ($username!=null && $password!=null && $newpassword!=null && $newpassword2==$newpassword){
        $session = mapi_logon_zarafa($username,$password);
        if ($session == false) {
                printf ("logon failed with error %x \n",mapi_last_hresult());
                print "$username and $password \n";

        } else {
                $stores = mapi_getmsgstorestable($session);
                $storeslist = mapi_table_queryallrows($stores);
                $store = mapi_openmsgstore($session, $storeslist[0][PR_ENTRYID]);

                $user = mapi_zarafa_getuser($store, $username);
                $ok = false;
                $updname = true;
                if(($fullname == null) || (strlen($fullname) < 2)){
                        $fullname = $user['fullname'];
                        $updname = false;
                if(mapi_zarafa_setuser($store,$user["userid"],$username,$fullname,$user["emailaddress"],$newpassword, 0, $user["admin"])){
                        echo "


                        echo "failed";
                if (mapi_last_hresult()!=0){
                        echo "Error: 0x".dechex(mapi_last_hresult());
                        echo "<input type=\"button\" value=\"Try Again\" onClick=\"javascript:history.go(-1);\">\n";
                        echo "changed";
                        echo "</p>
                        echo "<input type=\"button\" value=\"Close\" onClick=\"javascript:window.close();\">\n";
