Remote user password problem

Our environment consists of Microsoft Windows 2003 Active directory, with Windows 7 clients, MAC, and Linux.

All users have an account in AD.

Group policy is set that the AD passwords expire in 90 days.

However, our remote employees (the ones who connect 99% of time with VPN client) do receive any warnings that their password is going to expire. Eventually 90 days pass and these employees can no longer log into the network.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? It is getting to be an issue because the remote users get locked out of the network.

Thanks in advance.

Both suggestions will work in our environment. It is just a question of selecting one over the other.
