This appears to be a design error:  the overloaded use of the "password" in for both the VM password and the SIP device secret in the User tab will lead to operational confusion.

For example, when a user changes their VM password (through the VM IVR menus), will the SIP device auth break?

(Whatever the resolution, the Tooltip should clearly say what the field is used for).

I think the suggestion by dome to have an additional config option in users.conf for 'vmpassword' is the best solution to this problem. So when a user changes their VM password thru the Voicemail app, it should change what vmpassword in users.conf is set to, thus not breaking the sip/iax accounts
