    Hello,

    I've got OS 10.5.6 (not server) going on my Mac mini and I'm wondering if I can setup a password expiration date/time limit so the password will expire. I did some MRoogle searches and they were all from a few years ago, before Leopard.

    Any help would be great!

    I searched on MRoogle as well and it looks like it can't be done unless you are connected to OS X Server with Active Directory. There was another tip about either setting up an iCal reminder or using a cron job.

    Thanks for your help. Too bad that it can't be done without OS X Server.
