    You can write some custom code to look through AD and send out emails to
    users whose passwords are expiring in X days or less than X days, but if
    your users use OWA for email there is a notification that can be turned
    on if the password is expiring soon. I prefer this method because it is
    always on top of the inbox and doesn't harass users with an email every
    day. It's worth checking out if all you off site users are using OWA.

    Check out http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;327134
    for more info. Also, beware that there are a few patches to IIS on an
    Exchange server that may need to be installed to make this work
    consistently.

    Good luck,

    Scott

    Subject: Notifying users of password expiration via e-mail`

    I have a large group of off domain users to contend with, which means
    they cannot be notified at login time that their password will expire.
    Has anyone used any programs, scripts, or otherwise that checks against
    password age and notified users via e-mail that their password is going
    to expire. I'm looking for something that is configurable in how
    frequently it e-mails the users.

    I would use this in combination with a password reset application I
    already have.
