Windows users say they are not warned password is expiring

I have a SBS server with 90 day password change requirement.  Some users claim they never get warned they need to change their password... it just expires... is this possible?   If so, how can I make sure they are notified?

Typically this happens when the user is at the crtl+alt+del screen when you login. If the users are only using smart phones for Mail etc it is a possibility that is why it is not prompting them. It only prompts (count down) in specific situations.

This is also configured via GPO as well so you might want to check this and make sure that the users that might not be receiving this info actually have this GPO applied to their computer.

Hey - dumb question maybe... how do I check the GPO thing on the users PC?

FYI - the user does log into a PC normally... not sure how often they reboot... but they should be logging in from a lock screen regularly.

Open rsop.msc from Run and then in the Computer Config and navigate to this location and see if it is applied to this machine.
