    Unhappy Mail migration

    I have a very peculiar problem. I have a list of about 10000 email accounts that I am migrating from an old mail server. They are in username/password pair form and in a text file.
    So, in order to create those same accounts on zimbra, I simply have to write a shell script that will cycle though the usernames and password and use zmprov command to create the accounts on zimbra with the same usernames and passwords.
    So far so good. However!!! Zimbra doesn't support passwords shorter than 6 characters.
    Does anyone know how to turn that feature off?

    Default zimbraPasswordMinLength

    You may be able to get away with specifying zimbraPasswordMinLength when you create the accounts. If that doesn't work (for chicken-and-egg) reasons, try setting it on the COS you're adding the accounts to.

    Man!! that worked! just like this: zmprov ca "test" zimbraPasswordMinLength 1 :-)

    you won't believe what I went through:
    I went to zimbra's svn, found the authenticating class in sources, hacked the spot where it is checking for password length, recompiled the class, substituted the existing class in Zimbra libraries with the hacked one, and it still didn't let me create short passwords.
    Thanks man. :-)
