Are there any after effects or synchronization issues (aside from ensuring passwords are updated) when changing a user account password with passwd?

DA keeps a password hash located in /home/${USERNAME}/.shadow for the user ${USERNAME}. It is used by exim in the /etc/exim.pl file to authenticate ${USERNAME}, so the passwd command would not update the password used for SMTP.

I changed the password again after logging into the account, so I think everything should be synchronized again.
