How can I notify a user, when they log in, that their password will expire soon?

How can I notify a user, when they log in, that their password will expire soon?

This is a sample profile Login Script that will tell the user when their password expires, each time they log into webNetwork / Unified Workspace. 

Once the user reaches the limit where their password will expire in 4 days, the Change Password link is also executed with a warning message. 

If the user still hasn't changed their password with 1 day to go before it expires, they are more strongly warned to change their password, with the Change Password link being executed. 

  * Note:  This will not work with AD LDS or Directory Sync installs of webNetwork / Unified Workspace



// *** Check for when password expires *** 
if daysUntilPasswordExpiration > 4 then 
message( text = "@@usergivenname@@ your password will expire on @@PasswordExpirationTime@@") 
end 

// *** Inform user password will expire in 4 days *** 
if (daysUntilPasswordExpiration > 1 and daysUntilPasswordExpiration < 4) then 
executeLink("cn=Change Password,ou=Authentication,ou=Account Mgmt,o=STONEWARE") 
message( type=warning, text = "@@usergivenname@@ your password will expire in less than 4 days. Please change your Password soon. Expiration = @@PasswordExpirationTime@@.") 
end 

// *** Inform user passwored expires in 1 day *** 
if daysUntilPasswordExpiration <= 1 then executeLink("cn=Change Password,ou=Authentication,ou=Account Mgmt,o=STONEWARE") 
message( type=alert, text = "@@usergivenname@@ your password will expire in 1 day or less. PLEASE CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD NOW! before it gets locked out. Thank you. Expiration = @@PasswordExpirationTime@@", icon="/images/redx.gif" ) 
end
