SharePoint password change
Hello everyone... I have almost 500 AD accounts and their passwrods are currently set to not expire, thus user need not change the passwords. As our security policy changes, their passwords will expired three months. The trouble is that these users are remote users who will never come to the office and log on using the computers. They will access Sharepoint Site from all over the world and now my concern is that when the domain password policy kicks in how could I inform them to change their password? Is there an add-on tool which I need to drop/configure on my Sharepoint IIS box or is there any out of the box thing which will prompt them to change their passwords when their passwords went expired.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I am assuming they use a VPN to access the network, if that is the case they should be able to change domain PW using Ctrl>Alt>Del and then change PW.

What we’ve done is provide them with a link to another server that does the password reset like one of the Exchange Server
example:

http://exchangeserver/iisadmpwd/

    My post was deleted... I basically wrote what Aquacer0 wrote about letting them change the password in OWA. It is a disactivated feature of Exchange.
