Hi LingB,

The "/EXPIRES:" option doesn't specify when the password expires, instead it specifies when the account itself will expire.

If you want to set all of the user accounts to password never expires then you could use:

net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

I don't see a way to do it for individual users.

Go to user manager tools (Start->Programs->Administrative Tools->User Manager). Double click on the user account and there is a an option to set password never expired. Bear in mind, you must have administrator right to set this option.
