Ok it worked for me apart that the magic phrase is
"Please change my password" (without Debian)

Also the generated password is awful (10 caracters long even if height are
only useful) and is not generated with simple memorization in mind. :-)

If you could move the encrypted passwd in a mime attachment so that mutt
users can read it without manually piping the message through pgp/gpg it
would be great.

Thanks for the great work !
