Need users to receive a prompt that their passwords are due to expire in Windows 7

I am using a windows server 2008 and Group Policy to enforce my company's password policy.
With Window's XP, users were always given reminders starting at 14 days before when they were due to change their passwords. With Windows 7 Pro, the users are not getting the reminder that pops up when they login and makes them choose whether to change it now or later. As a result, I have had several people that were unable to access their email and desktops remotely because their password had expired. Is there anyway that I can get Windows 7 to give this prompt?

In my experience this can be a little flaky with Win7.  Sometimes users would get the prompt and other times they wouldn't (and no, it wasn't just an issue of the icon/balloon not being noticed).  When remoting into other machines it seems like the notification would always appear, just not on the user's desktop.  Can't think of any relation, but the situation appears to have improved greatly since we moved from W2K3 DCs to W2K8R2.  I also made sure that the password policy was only being set in the Default Domain Policy.
