This is regarding changing passwords. The client uses Lotus Mail and whenever a user changes a password, it should not be any of the six previous passwords.
The client wants:
- To store the last six passwords of the user as an encrypted value.
- When the document is opened (even by the admin or user), the encrypted value only should be seen.
- When the user changes the password, the system should check with the previous values and should either accept or reject.
Unless I am missing something, this sounds to me like the built-in password change feature of Lotus Notes. You can look up full details in the Notes Admin Help database. Go to the Index view, then Passwords.
(I am assuming that you are referring to Lotus Notes, not some older software called Lotus Mail.)
