Send Office 365 Password Expiry Reminder Email Notification
Office 365 as of right now doesn't have a feature that enables users to get notified if their passwords are on the verge of getting expired. I know there's a notification that appears, but our organization needs the email notifications. If you guys can help us out it would really appreciated.
- Mobile users need an email notification or pop-up.
- Send multiple emails e.g. 2 weeks before expiry and 2 days before
Thank you to everyone taking the time to vote on this ask. Our security best practices recommend not making passwords expire and our focus is around this policy at the moment. You can read more about it in these two documents:

The current workaround is a PowerShell script that might not be appropriate for large enterprise environments. This needs to be a baked-in feature.
This would be helpful.

It's difficult to believe that this wasn't a part of the original release. I mean, most users are going to be using a client, not the OWA, so they'll never even see the notification.
Please add this feature.

Get it done MS.

There currently doesn't seem to be a way to know that your password is about to expire from desktop outlook.
Agreed. The message should go out as email as well, and preferably more than once.
Agree. This seems like a pretty basic feature

We need Email Notification emails on Password Expiry before 14 days and before 2 days. So Users can get alert twice about Password expiry from Microsoft. It will help users to proactively change the password before it gets expire. Thanks.
Mobile users can't be alert that the password is expiring after 90 days. How about email alert warning them about password change?

It's pretty mind boggling that Office 365 can't send an email reminder for password resets. This would be a huge help. Please make it so!
Add a function that allows 0365 users to get an alert via email that their password is about to expire. Many of my users use MAC's or 3rd party email clients and they have no idea when their password expires and they don't get an alert.

This is a big issue for the organization I support as well. Our users rarely use the Office 365 portal and many of them primarily use mobile devices so their passwords expire and then support has to reset a bunch of users passwords every 30 days. If there was an option to send email notifications to the users instead of only the prompts on the portal (and some versions of Outlook), that would be very useful. Thanks for your consideration -- Jeff Gaiche

It is required to have a feature that reminds the user next password expiration, similar to on-premises Exchange informs that the mailbox is almost full or when the mailbox is full feature.
It is required because users who have configured the mail account on mobile devices, do not know when they defeated the password but do not receive emails.
