Outlook webmail won’t let you login if password renewal is due

which sorta makes sense.

But in Exchange 2013 it’s possible to change your password in OWA without logging into AD so if a user is scheduled to change their password the next time they login, I thought OWA might force a password change. Actually, thinking about that, how would that work? It would have to automatically present the change password dialogue. Perhaps that’s not possible.

Just need to remember that for users who don’t log into AD directly on a PC, but just use OWA all the time, forcing them to change their password on next login won’t work.

Web searches don’t reveal much, but if I understand Change Password Feature in Outlook Web App correctly, it’s WAD.

what a mess

What’s happened here is that I’ve had two poorly maintained blogs and I’ve crudely welded them together into one.

This blog is now a messy tramsmash of www.bluecedar.org.uk and katsura.org.uk.

The basics were simple enough:

  1. Create new self-installed WordPress blog (this one)
  2. Export everything out of bluecedar.org.uk (Tools/Export)
  3. Export everything out of katsura.org.uk (Tools/Export)
  4. Import into katsura.uk (Tools/Import)

Step 4. required installing a plug-in but that was no big deal.

It’s a mess, but it’s a nice mess.
