Outlook 2010/2013 Connecting through RPC/Autodiscover

I'm familiar with the OWA implementation and procedures for allowing passwords to be changed there so that's not my question.  All of my client machines both internal to the LAN and also externally use Outlook 2010 and 2013 versions.  So getting them to browse to OWA to change their passwords is a pain.

Is there a way for instance to;

Prompt a user when they launch Outlook client that their password is expiring and needs to be changed?

Allow externally connected Outlook clients to change their passwords within the Outlook client and not have to browse to OWA to do so?

Much appreciated

There's no function like that hard codes into the Office products. Probably because they expected you to be running in a domain/active directory environment, where Windows and the domain servers handle the password changing and expiration reminders.

This is a pretty common problem - the best you can do is use a tool that will send an email out when the password is coming up for expiring so the users can login to OWA to change it. Outlook cannot do it, as already stated.
