Password expired what will happen to the clients that has not changed the password.
I have unchecked the option "Password Never expires"

Now there are users being asked to change the password within 5 and its counting down. What will happen if we dont change?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Nothing should happen. If you have password never expires they will not get locked out or anything.
Since you unchecked the password never expires, if they don't change the password, the user will be locked out of their account. No data will be lost, but the account will need to be reactived by accessing the account in active directory and changing the password by right-clicking on the user account.
if it is counting down, they will need to change their password.  if they don't change it before it gets t counts all the way down, they will get a message when they log on that says "Your password has expired and must be changed".  Clicking OK brings up the change password dialogue box - If they click Cancel, they are logged out.  they will not be able to access web-related resources like Outlook Web Access either.
