Prompt user to change password before expiration Issue

I have a problem with only one user so far where the system will not notify them that their password will expire in 'X' days. I have the following item set in the GPO: "Interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration - 5 Days" I've checked the Group Policy results and it shows the GPO being applied to the users workstation. It does show a notification about password expiration when they log into Outlook Web Access though. Any ideas what would cause not to appear on the workstation?? Thanks.

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

Make sure the Alerter service is started.

    Exactly Right. Thanks man, didn't even occur to me since these are all imaged machines. Now I get to find out who's been adjusting services. Thanks!

    You are also going to find the people that will ignore this notification even when it does work and notifies 5 days prior.

    Kmeister,

    Ensure that the "Alerter service" has been started on the problematic workstation.

    I would also advise that you create another group policy to prevent "end users" tampering with services and start-up programs.

    The best practice tends to be the prevention of "meddling" from "end users". Give them access to what they are required to use in order to do their work and restrict features that are more for the technical support guys (such as yourself).

    Regards,
    Alex Christopher Johnson
