EXCH 2007 How to Change Password Expiration Warning Notification Days on OWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our AD has Password Policy and Password Warning Notification is set to 5 Days

    However, when it comes to our Exchange 2007 OWA, users get warning at 15 days and I would like to find out if there's a way to change this default 15 days to 5 day in OWA

    Thanks in Advance for your assistance

  • How is it Possible in the First Place.

    You Ad policy should apply for your Outlook and OWA and windows account as well


    Are they both running on the Same - Server and AD are --  Same domain

  • That's what I thought but I read some where that OWA has embbeded script which has default of 15 days

    I running running it on the same domain. - clarify : I have 1 CAS, 2 HUB, 2 Clustered Mailboxes and FSMO split into 2 Servers

    One thing is tho, our exchange server is under OU that is blocked of our GP. Not sure if this makes difference.

    does your environment have password policy? with how many days of expiraton warning?

    Thanks for showing interest :)

  • Hi,


    By the way, what version is windows server in your Exchange 2007?


    And Exchange 2007 OWA does not support the Windows 2008 Native Domain feature for Fine Grained Password policies.  Exchange 2007 OWA only supports the Default Domain Password policies.


    Hope it helps.

  • Hi Sophia.

    Thanks for your response

    We are running Windows 2008 Enterprise SP1 for Mailbox Server and 2008 Std for Hubs and CAS

    We are on Forest/Domain Functional Level of Windows 2003

    Question is where does OWA get password warning value from?  Can this  be changed?

    Thanks again for your input in this

  • Hi,


    It should be from OWA virtual directory and the value can’t be changed, which is by design. For more, you can refer to a similar thread:

  • Hello.

    Sorry, just to clarify the question again, we have no problem getting password expiration warning but warning date is different than our domain policy.  Our Default domain password policy is set at 5 days yet OWA warns at 15days.

    I was assuming OWA warning date value should be from our default policy but it's not.  Can this date be changed from 15days to 5 days?

    Thanks again for helping out with this.
