Password history for an MS Exchange 2003 & MS Exchange 2010 mailbox account


I don't have Exchange admin rights but would like to find out what's my
current password history on my Exchange 2003 & 2010 mailbox accounts.

How can I find out other than asking the Exchange admin?

Or what's the default value for Exch 2003 and 2010?

I usually would like to use back my old password (by changing say 21 or 31 times

Exchange restricts access to password information very well. If you don't have administrative rights, you won't get anywhere. There are specialty tolls that will display your password, but not password history. You would need administrative access to use those tools also.

Exchange does not provide a default password on new accounts unless the administrator specifies a default in one of the GPO's.

I'm requesting for default password history, not password.  So by default,
how many times must I change my mailbox password before I can reuse
back a previously used password?  10 times, 20 times, 30times or never?

Password history is defined by your administrator, why not try asking your helpless what your password policy is? Most larger organisations will publish their policy on their intranet or it support web site.

Given that password policy is configurable, its like asking us how long is a piece of string ;) good luck finding the information you need from you it team.
