       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

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

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