Dovecot custom password file.


I am using a custom password file with CRAM-MD5 scheme for dovecot in the mail server that I am maintaining. After setting up CRAM-MD5, I tried creating a new email user.

Now the problem is that the new user password is not updated in the custom password file. Is there anyway to automate this or do I have to do this manually every time I create a new user or modify a user?.

Dovecot passdb.

passdb {
  driver = passwd-file
  args = scheme=cram-md5 /etc/dovecot/cram-md5.pwd

passwords are stored as username:password hash
