I also have a hard time believing this as my password is 12 characters
long, contains non-alphanumeric characters, and I cannot log into with the case-insensitive truncated version of my password.

Subject: [MSUNAG] Maximum length of a msunet id

   I was just informed that passwords for an MSU Net id can only be 6 to
8 characters, alpha or numeric only, no other characters allowed, case

   This is news to me.  Is this really true?  I just got this from a
consultant.  I'm having a hard time believing this.  I've been
encouraging my people to make up longer passwords, sigh.
