We have a password change policy that prompts users to change their passwords every  120 days.  How can I be sure or check to make sure that the users will be notified when they need to do this?  I know when they login it is supose to prompt you, where do i check to make sure that is working right?  Second, what if they do not logout very often.  Is there some kind of email notification i can use.  Otherwise, what happens is they don't logout for weeks, then they do only to find out that their password has expired.  

maybe a 3rd party program or script.  

thanks.

PEWA version 2.0 is included in the Microsoft Back Office Resource Kit or the Exchange 2000 Resource Kit.

PEWA has been successfully tested on Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000. Hmm, don't know where you can get these.. I got the exchange 2000 Ressource kit with an Exchange 2000 book i bought last year..

You have to get the exchange resource kit.. I never got any of the tools in there online..

Pretty cheap, and great to have..

I got it for 30 Canadian $ in a computer book liquidation store.. it's easy to get it almost anywhere..
