OWA and Outlook doesn't show password expiration warning :Exchange 2007

I have Exchange 2007 running on server 2008

We have several users who works outside company , they do not logon to the domain

some use webacees and some outlook klient.

OWA and Outlook doesn't show password expiration warning for user who works outside company and they are not logged into the domain

Big problem :)

What can i do to fix that ?

OWA 2007 has the change password feature out of the box. You don't need the IISAdmPwd thingy.

Hi Jhon,

I've implemented a tool that sends email-password reminders to users 5 days before its expiration.
That worked...

outlook and owa, off site, are not capable of telling you how to do that.  owa might let you manually change your password, but it doesn't always work.

you could set those users properties in active directory to 'password never expires'... and then just manually change their password every X weeks while you call them and say here's your new password

if their password expired, or will expire in a few days, they still can't change it themselves anyway (off site)

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Bryon

in this solution it says

But you can set the password age, let's say for 3 months, then your users will receive a message about the password change when they logon to OWA and they will be able to change it through OWA if everything is setup properly.

that's where i said "owa might let you manually change your password, but it doesn't always work."  ... sometimes when using owa from the outside world, before users can actually get that prompt and change their password, you might need to adjust some security settings in IIS.  it might work though...

how do you feel about 'password never expires' ?

The Company i am helping with this dont accept 'password never expires'

They say that they have seen before OWA and Outlook  shows password expiration in other companies and now they also want that

B HCommented:
the link you referred to above is for server 2003, IIS 6...  your server 2008 has IIS 7, which has removed the functionality to change passwords via OWA

there is a work-around, but it's not officially supported by microsoft, details here:

OWA 2007 has the change password feature, however I'm not sure it has a reminder. That's why I used a tool for that.
