Be proactive with your user's network password expiration, by sending them an email reminder that their password is about to expire.
Practical Password Reminder is a password expiration monitoring utility for domain accounts. The utility will lookup the domain’s password policy and determine which users have passwords that will be expiring within the specified number of days. Users with expiring passwords will receive a customizable email stating their password is about to expire. Domain administrators will also receive an email with a summary report that lists the users with passwords expiring within the specified number of days. Example report
This is great for Outlook Web Access(OWA), VPN users, Mac, Linux, or users that frequently use generic logins that may not receive the Windows logon password expiration notification. Since Windows 7 no longer gives an expiration warning to users, an email alert is a suitable alternative to ensure users change their password before it expires.

Note on our pricing:
We believe in providing high quality and beneficial products at a price that is affordable to all companies. We don’t like buying network administrative software for our own use that is licensed on a per user basis and we don’t believe you should have to either. This is especially true when the software is exactly the same whether there are 10 users or 10,000 users. In this time of economic downturn, we understand there is an even greater need for companies to find and implement cost effective solutions. We want to provide software that fits that need.
$250.00 per computer it is installed on. It only needs to be installed on one computer per domain. Currently you can't manage more than one domain per installation. You will need to install Practical Password Reminder separately for each domain and purchase a license for each domain. Licenses can be purchased by credit card or purchase order. POs can be sent to
or faxed to 208-379-1292208-379-1292
