       authtest - Test the Courier Authentication Library


       authtest {loginid} [password] [newpassword]


       authtest is a command-line diagnostic utility for the Courier Authentication Library.
       authtest requires at least one argument: loginid.  authtest sends the authentication
       request to the Courier Authentication Library, then displays the results. Only root may
       use authtest utility, and the Courier Authentication Library daemon (authdaemond) must
       already be started.

       If only one argument is provided, the authentication request displays the account
       information for loginid, if found.

       If two arguments are provided, password must match loginid's existing password.

       If three arguments are provided, loginid's password is changed to newpassword, but only if
       password matches the existing psasword.

       These three basic authentication requests can be used to troubleshoot the authentication
       library's configuration.
