     By default users get notified of password expiration was 14 days before expiration,then the default password expiry notice occurs 5 days before the password expiration date.

  • Hi,

    If you want all 10k users do not receive the notification, you could try to set prompt user to change password before expiration to 0 days, which results in displaying the password expiration warning every time the user logs on.

    If you want some of the 10k users do not receive the notification, you could use security filtering to achieve your goal.

    For more information, you could refer to the article below.

  • Hi,

    Previously, the default interval that users were notified of password expiration was 14 days before expiration. In Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, the default password expiry notice occurs 5 days before the password expiration date.

    In additional, you could change the default value by GPO. Under the path:computer configuration\windows settings\local policies\security options.

    For more information, you could refer to the article below.

  • Hello Jay

    thanks for the reply, in our environment its default 5 days as its not configured

    One more query, if i dont want to send THIS  NOTIFICATION ALONE to 10k users, do we have steps to configure this, 

    If i add those users to deny group, it will deny all the default domain policy.

    Please advise

    Thanks
