Exchange 2007 and AD password

Hello All. I have noticed that when I change my password in windows that exchange 2007 will still let me log-on with both the old password and the new password. However I cannot use the old password to login to windows, only the new password. Is there something in exchange that remembers the last password and still considers it valid? I am running a 2003 environment in 2003 mode and have two DC's that I forced replication on to make sure that wasnt the issue.

You may need to run from a command-line the following:

GPUPDATE /force

Otherwise, you may need to look at the replication partners to be sure that something is not broken.

HTH,

Ok correct me if I am wrong here but the new password is recognized on the exchange server through OWA along with the old password. Does this not prove that replication did occur? Also the dc recognizes the old password is no longer valid since it will not allow me to logon to windows with the old password.

GPUPDATE /force  has absolutely nothing at all to do with passwords. Please do not offer advice on subjects you do not understand.

This only appears to be with OWA. I did find an article that mentions something about this.

It looks like if this has been around since 2000 then Microsoft would have addressed this by now. Hopefully I still am missing something on my end or is this still just normal behaviour?

Have not received another solution form expert. Did not award myself points but did find the article that addressed this from Microsoft KB.
