    Lightbulb Enforce password change on next login (feature request)

    Hello,
    this is a feature request concerning security.

    Especially for new users, sometimes their initial DA password might be sent to them by non-secure and encypted means for practical reasons.
    It would be nice to be able to have a button per user that will "Enforce password change on next login".
    This will redirect them to change their password immediately after their next login.
    This can be also a checkbox preselected when creating a new user on the create user form.

    [ Ideally as a next step it would be also nice to have also another feature in general DA options: To honor a new field "password expire (days)", that will enforce all users to change password after those days have passed since their last password change. This is a useful security measure. ]

    In addition: is it possible to implement a feature to send the forget password emails through an external SMTP server? Default emails are frequently blocked.

    This has been requested a few times over the years....... For all DA emails..... And, as for resellers, let them have this option too, for their own external server.
