Quick question.

We have a Server 2008 TS and Server 2003 Exchange / AD server.

We want make it so users have to meet certain requirements with their passwords.

My question is this:

When we implement this, will users who do not meet the current password complexity requirements get a warning when they login saying "Your password does not meet the requirements" please change your password now.

?

Thanks

No. They will not get it again until the next time they change their password

The next time they change their password they will see the warning, you may also want to communicate the new complexity via an email message so they know its coming (and reduce helpdesk calls)

Yes you can do that and from next time they have to keep a password which meets the complexity requirement.
As said above communicate then via email and give a example of passwords in the same email.
