I would like to force Notes users to change their password within the first few days or on the first use of the ID (like Novell and Microsoft do when you sign on to the network for the first time). Is there any way to do this?
Many people have asked about this. As far as I know, there is no way to force users to change their initial Notes ID password. However, you can do almost as well with this trick: Make each initial password a unique string that is so hard to type users will want to change it. An example is 5Ad*vG+4eF1$. If you had this password, you would change it as fast as you could. There is a tool on my download page to help you quickly create these passwords. Go here.
