Password policy in zimbra 8.5

Have a zimbra server 8.5.1 with around 1000 users.
Need to enforce a password policy (eg: users needs to change in every 60 days) in which users get a warning email before certain days of expiry. Found some scripts but totally confused how those are working.
is there any working solution available?

If I changed password policy in COS, whether it will calculate the password age from the day I changed config or from the last day the user changed password?? If it is calculating the user password age, then how can we avoid lockout of all the Ids as the most of the passwords might be older than 60 days.

I use the following script for notifications: http://jogi-sysadmin.blogspot.com/2015/06/password-expiry-notification-for-users.html

As far as the effective date for the password expiration. On zimbra 7 the age was from the date of the last change(or creation) When I implemented the policy users got locked out who were past the change by date. On zimbra 8 my password policy was implemented before adding users so I did not get to see if the results are still the same.

I also found that script useful.Happy to know it is actually working.
Is there any way we can modify the PasswordModifyDate so that we can make all on same date.

Any other solutions are welcomed especially in password age issue.
