                When checked, WAG will attempt to update the user's email account password with their WAG account password.  This will only work in situations where 1) the user has a valid email account associated with their WAG account and 2) the user's email access information is stored in a database.  It will not attempt to change any user system accounts.  This feature is designed to work with accounts accessible by <a href="http://www.squirrelmail.org" target="_blank">SquirrelMail</a> which have been configured to store user access information in an RDBMS.
            
                <p><b>Server Name/IP</b> - The server name or IP address for the database which holds the user's email account information.</p>
