Can not that be done by anyone who knows someone else's password?
If I know user A's password, I log in as user A and change it.
What's the difference?

Subject: Soka|OWA 2003|Change Password feature

Hello All,

We are looking at the OWA 2003 "Change Password" feature for our
production environment.   The odd thing is it allows "User A" to change
the password of "User B", if "User B"'s password is known by "User A".
This seems to be a security loophole we don't want to open.  Is anyone
using the "Change Password" feature that can share their experiences?

  We are Exchange 2003 SP1 Enterprise shop.  1FE/2BE configuration.

Thanks, Robert
