IMAPIStatus::ChangePassword

Published: July 16, 2012

Modifies a service provider's password without displaying a user interface. This method is optionally supported in status objects that service providers implement.

HRESULT ChangePassword(
  LPSTR lpOldPass,
  LPSTR lpNewPass,
  ULONG ulFlags
);

lpOldPass

[in] A pointer to the old password.

lpNewPass

[in] A pointer to the new password.

ulFlags

[in] A bitmask of flags that controls the format of the passwords. The following flag can be set:

MAPI_UNICODE

The passwords are in Unicode format. If the MAPI_UNICODE flag is not set, the passwords are in ANSI format.

S_OK

The password modification was successful.

MAPI_E_NO_ACCESS

The old password pointed to by lpOldPass is invalid.

MAPI_E_NO_SUPPORT

The status object does not support this operation, as indicated by the absence of the STATUS_CHANGE_PASSWORD flag in the status object's PR_RESOURCE_METHODS (PidTagResourceMethods) property.

Not all status objects support the IMAPIStatus::ChangePassword method. It is supported only by service providers that require clients to enter a password. None of the status objects that MAPI implements support the password change operation.

ChangePassword modifies a password programmatically, without user interaction.

Remote transport providers implement ChangePassword as specified here. There are no special considerations.
