disable password changes for users at the domain level

Hello,

I am working for a shipping company and we just implemented Exchange 2000 sp3 on the network. We have 4 windows 2000 servers all running sp4 and we have a need to disable all password changes. Everyone must keep the same password. It is a strnge request and it must be done. The reason is that a shipping software acts as a mail server and delivers mail from Exchange to all clients. I do not want to log on to the shipping software every other day and change a users password to match their active directory password.
Is there a way of doing this using group policy?

Many thanks,

Tacobell2000
