  • Hi,

     

    Please provide me more detailed information connected to your current Default Domain Policy > Password Policy configuration settings.

     

    ·         Enforce password history: (typically =0)

     

    ·         Maximum password age: (typically =0)

     

    ·         Minimum password age: (typically =0)

     

    ·         Minimum password length: (typically =7)

     

    ·         Password must meet complexity requirements: (typically =Disabled)

     

    ·         Store passwords using reversible encryption: (typically =Disabled)

     

    Please read this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb684904.aspx  (Configuring the Change Password Feature in Outlook Web App).

     

    Let me know about the results.

     

    Thanks.

  • This is a tricky little thing.

    It is not enough to simply set a the values to 0. You must set them to a value then gpupdate and then to 0 and update.

    Otherwise the original values will not be overwritten.

     

    all the best
