I went through all that however it still doesnt "Force" a username password.

What I want to make happen is that a user is FORCED to change their password upon first logon. Maybe with a popup message or something.

Is this possible and if so, how?

Thanks in advance,

I'm looking for an answer to this question too...  Could anybody please answer with a "no, not possible" or a "yes, see KB-XYZ"...? This seems to be a recurrent topic, but i've never found a satisfactory answer for it.

My particular case would involve Exchange 2007 and ISA 2006, and I would greatly appreciate any hint for enabling password change on first login through OWA (same for password resetting). Btw, I'm considering to subscribe to EE, but somehow not sure... so this is some kind of test  ;-)

Thanks a lot,

Yeah, I still haven't gotten to the bottom of this either...
