Password policy and exceptions

I want to set up a password policy (complexity and life etc.) for my domain - I know how to do that via GPO.

The problem is that in one domain, only 1 password policy can exist. I do have quite a few special accounts such as Blackberry Enterprise Server account that are used to run various services. I do not want to change those passwords as per the password policy.

Do I just simply check "Password never expires" in account setting while still have a domain GPO in effect?

hello there

yes, if you check password never expires before changing your password GPO all old accounts will still work.
