Huh? I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding you or disagreeing with you :)
If you can't change the password to a new one without knowing the original
one, what's useless? If I have IE & OE on the same box (as most Windows
users do), and I can change the pop pw via IE, do you think it is less
secure for me to be able to change it with OE?
