Whilst setting passwords to never expire can be easily achieved in Office 365 Medium and Enterprise levels using the GUI backend, doing the same in Office 365 Small Business is not as easily achieved due to removing many of the advanced features from the GUI.  There is away around this however.  It involves using Powershell which really isn’t for the average end user but if you’re managing this for a client it’s fairly easy to accomplish.

After logging in using Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows Powershell run the following command:


and re-enter your username and password if prompted

Check Password Expiration – Organisation

Get-MSOLUser | Select UserPrincipalName, PasswordNeverExpires

Check Password Expiration – Individual User

Get-MSOLUser -UserPrincipalName exampleuser@organization.com | Select PasswordNeverExpires

Set All Passwords Never To Expire

Get-MSOLUser | Set-MsolUser -PasswordNeverExpires $true

Set Individual User to Never Expire

Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName exampleuser@organization.com -PasswordNeverExpires $true

Set All Users to Expire

Get-MSOLUser | Set-MsolUser -PasswordNeverExpires $false

Set Individual to Expire

Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName exampleuser@organization.com -PasswordNeverExpires $false
