fine grain policy and password expiration warning

We have a fine grain password policy implemented in our domain (require password change every 90 days), That's working fine but now we need to inform users x days out that their password is going to expire.

If we set the domain GPO
interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration
for 10 days will it see the expiration day in the fine grain password policy and inform users 10 days out that their password is going to expire? Or does this setting only work for the default domain password policy? If this setting does not work with fine grain password policy what options do we have for informing the users that their password is going to expire?

Though you are using FGPP, the password is stored in active directory only

Now if you set GPO to prompt users for password expiration, it must apply to FGPP also as long as it is storing password in active directory

Should work with PSO ("fine-grained..."), too. Please take a test account, a test PSO and try it out.

I saw all the attribute of PSO again but could not find similar that will remind that speicific FGPP user hence the GPO configured in Domain policy should work to FGPP users too

Hi Iamuser,
You can have check this password expiration reminder software which would be a good choice for you. By using this software, users will get notification through customized emails before their password is about to expire in X days.
