Hello Experts

Is there a way to change the domain password of a user from outlook?
Notice that the computer is not a domain member it's just an RPC over HTTPS.
So i need to find a way for a user that is not in the domain but have an email account, to change their password on outlook.

Thanks

i dont think you can do it using Outlook.

You can change password by login in to OWA tho

what version of exchange do you have

Sure. If you are running Exchange 2007 or 2010 it is under Options, Change Password.

Outlook should prompt when it is time to change password, I can't remember if it does it for HTTPs clients though.

Your other option would be to use OWA's change password option.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

i think the only option you would have to login to Outlook Web App and change password there.

keep in mind that you might  need to go to GPO and Enable the Minimum Password Age setting and set it to 0 or higher for the Change Password feature of OWA to work.

or as MegaNuk3 mantioned outlook might ask you to change password ....click the "user must change pasword at next logon"

give it a go and let us know

Hi aucklandnz

that what i don't understand becuase on the default domain policy the complexity is "disabled"
and the minimum password age is set to 1 day.
