I completely agree with Lee, but this feature is pretty difficult to
implement in NLD since we dont know if the machine is authenticating to
AD. Currently we are forced to sell a very expensive solution to the
The client needs to authenticate to eDirectory  and then eDirectory
syncronizes with AD. Ofcourse we get our to eat our meals twice a day
due to this solution.

But the feature to change exchange password is still attractive since
exchange may not always authenticate to AD. Exchange can have its own
user store. I would suggest adding a change exchange password option in
evolution (not sure if this is possible).
