Non Domain users using outlook are not prompted to change their password

I am currently facing this problem & hopefully you are able to advise me what to do.

Our outlook users are divided into Domain & Non-Domain users. As Domain users are tied to AD, thus once they changed their Network Login password, their email password will be changed accordingly automatically too. And they will be prompted to change their password once it about to expire.

However for those Non-Domain users using outlook they won't be able to notice the password expiration prompt untill the very last day when the password had expired.

For those OWA users they won't have this error as they will be prompted to change their password.

Is there any way i can do to ensure that those Non Domain outlook users are able to change their password promptly?

Thank You

PS: Our next password expiration is going to due soon, hopefully you are able to help me ASAP

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your advise.

As written in the script, i need to specify an HOSTING_OU for my exchange users but we have multiple OUs as our enterprise exchange server is hosting multiple domain names.

How can i specify this into the script? Can i specify all the different OUs as below into 1 single script or do i need multiple scripts to do that?

Const HOSTING_OU  = "A"
Const HOSTING_OU  = "B"
Const HOSTING_OU  = "C'

I am also not very sure how can i get this script to run in exchange server? Do i just rename the scrip to *.vbs & use GPO to push it down?

The script is not a client side script. It runs on your server.

This is not really the best place for support of the script as I didn't write it. You need to speak to the author who should be able to assist.
