We mandate that user passwords expire every 60 days for security reasons. New passwords must be at least 8 characters long and meet at least three of the four parameters listed below: uppercase, lowercase, numeric value (0 through 9) and/or one of the following symbols: -=! @#$%^&*_+;':"',.
Navigate to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy, and then double-click "Maximum Password Age" on the left-hand menu. Change the value from "42" to the number of days you choose, and then click "OK" to save the modification. Users must change their passwords immediately after their password has expired.
Password expiry is no longer a concern. In reality, a risk-based analysis will rapidly reveal that password expiration causes much more harm than benefit and significantly increases your risk exposure.
Passwords on Blackboard expire 180 days after they are created. Between 15 and 5 days before your password expires, you will receive an automatic email notification. If you have forgotten your blackboard password or it is no longer working, you must reset it. The only way to do this is through the link in the email.
Using the Net User command to check the password expiration date
Microsoft Corp.'s Hotmail e-mail service users who do not login in at least once every 30 days will have their accounts deleted, the company said Friday. A Hotmail account used to be programmed to expire after 45 days. But now those accounts are permanent unless you log in again.
If you don't use your Hotmail account for more than 180 days, then your email address will be deleted permanently.
However, if you need to check your old emails before they are gone, you can try using a tool like Gmail's Archive feature or Yahoo!'s Mailbox.
Both Google and Yahoo! offer free storage for users' old messages. With Gmail, you can archive an email message by clicking the File menu and selecting Mark As Unread. With Yahoo!, you can download your mail as a vCard file or print a copy of all your messages.
You cannot recover any deleted items through these tools; instead, they provide a way to view existing messages before they are lost forever.
Users should note that even if they check their emails frequently, there may be cases where they miss certain messages because they were unable to find them. If this happens to you, it is best to respond to those messages as soon as possible after they arrive in order to prevent them from disappearing without a trace.
Say it out loud: Expiration of Data Access Pause The data access expiration term is 90 days, based on when the user was last active. After 90 days, the user's account will be locked out and they'll need to approve an application again to regain access.
