Password Policy Compliance

System administrators can use the password policy compliance page to find users whose passwords do not meet any configured password requirements. Non-compliant users can then be notified via email that they need to change their passwords in accordance with the password requirements to maintain the security and integrity of the mail server.

To view a list of non-compliant users, click the Manage icon. Then click Password Policy Compliance in the navigation pane. A list of non-compliant users will load in the content pane and the following columns will be available:

  • Checkbox - Use these boxes to select multiple users. Users must be selected before choosing an action from the content pane toolbar.
  • User - The username that is non-compliant.
  • Domain - The domain on which the user exists.

In general, the following options are available in the content pane toolbar:

  • Send Email - Allows the system administrator to compose a message to send to the selected user(s), informing the user(s) of their non-compliance and advising the user(s) of how to remedy the situation and become compliant with the password policy for the domain.
