When I create a new user in the direcotry or recover a ID I give this user a inital password. The user should change this password during the first login. But there are only a handfull user who change this initial password.
I would like now a function (to get a bigger security) which is similar to the "Force user to change Internet Password on next login" but only for the lotus notes client.

I think we already have it.
Look at field "Change Password on First Notes Client Use" ant set it to "Yes".

It is located at the Security Setting policy, Password Management TAB. When you set the field "Use Custom Password Policy for Notes Clients" to "yes" you will get an optional "Custom password policy" TAB with this and many other fields.

Another alternative I have used for years is to create the "standard" password to be so long, all users will change it. My standard for years has been "pleasechangeyourpasswordasap". Easy to remember, encourages users to change by name and length .... and it works!!!
