Hello,

I am trying to setup a 90 day refresh of user passwords in AD.

What is the maximum and minimum password age? What do i need to set to make this work?

Maximum password age will be 90 days, minimum is the time before the user can change again, I normally make this 7 days but that is upto you. See link below for help in setting it up

Don't forget a reminder to let the users know their password is going to expire

Group Policy - Default Domain - Policies - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies - Security Options

Interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration

i put this into effect and it started prompting users to change their password right away.

How do i delay this a bit??

This is because all password are already older than 90 days or are close to 90 days. You need to get everyone to reset their password before making it live.
