Active Directory password change and ActiveSync

I've searched through the threads in EE and on the web but have not been satisfied with the answers I've found on this issue.

We have Exchange 2010 SP1 and have about 120 iPhones, iPads and various other ActiveSync devices connecting to our email services via CAS boxes.  Everything works great....until our group policy forces a password change in AD - happens every 90 days.

I know this question has been asked a million times but I have to ask again, is there a way to sync the new password to ActiveSync devices so the users do not have to manually change passwords on their iPhones, iPads, etc.?

This is causing two problems; 1) if the user forgets to change the password on the mobile device, he/she will eventually get locked out of AD due to bad password attempts, 2) some users - you know the ones, just call IT and gripe about their email not working anymore on their iPhone.

Any definite answer to this dilemma will be greatly appreciated.

I don't think there's a way to do that without 3rd party applications like Good For Enterprise.

You know the answer is no, however i am not going to say not possible. I have implemented a different solution, we created a script which monitors the account lockouts, with expiry dates, if lockouts are coming from CAS, we update user to check and change password into their handheld devices.

Separately, we ran another script to unlock user accounts. You can also develop something similar.

Thanks for the replies.  I was pretty sure the answer was no but needed evidence to support this answer and EE is always a trusted source.
