Subject: remote passwd change

Here is the scenario:
RedHat 7.2 using shadows passwords -> used for popmail use
popmail users are RedHat users, so their password are in /etc/shadow
users dont know nothing about linux (they are windows basic users)

Here is my problem:
I need to make them (~200 users) able to change their linux (mail) pasword
remotely, in the easiest every ever thought way. how can i do this? (i'
care if passwds are send in plaint text over the net) I' was thiking in
something like:

telnet myserver anyport (using a .bat file in their computers)

and then the server replies something like:

Enter your Username: <user>
Enter your OldPass: <pass1>
Enter your NewPass: <pass2>
Enter your NewPass again: <pass2>
Your password has been change. Have a nice day!

do anyone knows anyway to do this? (in this or any other way)

thaks for your help
