Can Domino be set to NOT accept the last 5-6 passwords?

Thank you Chuck for your tip regarding setting up password expiration. I have a question. Domino NOT accepting the last 50 password, seems to be overkilling??!! It will essentialy makes users frostrated and make them WRITE their password some where that they don't forgot. Whick we know is THE worst practice. Is there any way to set Domino to NOT accept the last 5 or 6 password. So the users can managmen it. In many companies, other than domino users have other password as well. Your input is appreciated.
I sort of agree with your point here. Unfortunately, I don't believe that Domino/Notes has any feature like you suggest (controlling the number of passwords remembered). My check of the official Lotus documentation confirms this. If anyone knows of a way to control how many previous passwords are disallowed, I'd love to hear about it!
