    I know how to change the password complexity using GPO, I want to change the message that users will get while trying to change the password.

    For example:

    "The password complexity has been change, your new password should have three letters, two numbers and one special char. here are few examples: A#121111, B*#17746,"

    Is it possible to do so ?
