Our company uses Office 365 for email, sharepoint, lync, etc..
Although it is against best practices, we would like to set our user passwords to never expire. Researching this requirement has let me to the following article by Microsoft:
Configure user password to never expire
I have followed the article and configured all users in the domain with a password that never expires. When running the cmdlet Get-MSOLUser | Select UserPrincipalName, PasswordNeverExpires, this setting is confirmed for all account.
However... in the article there is a note that states:
"Only passwords for user accounts that are not synchronized through directory synchronization can be configured to never expire."
I have contacted Office365 support and they have confirmed that my users account passwords are set to never expire and that even tho we are in a Directory Synchronization setup the passwords WILL NOT expire.
I'm a little skeptical about this. A Microsoft support tech is contradicting the support article.
So I am coming to the EE community for the tie breaker. Any experts out there who are using Office 365 Exchange in a Directory Synchronization setup and have set their users password to never expire that can confirm that the passwords will indeed not expire in 90 days??
