comment Why warn users weeks before their passwords expire?
I see that my questions [Is there anything in the security literature on this? Are there common problems this avoids?] were deemed by several experienced users to generally not involve facts and to be likely to solicit opinion. Though I was hoping some solid reasons would turn up, I suppose that is an answer to my questions.

comment Why warn users weeks before their passwords expire?
Yes, my own experience, that every client I use can handle post-expiration password changes (including the webmail client), doesn't prove that there isn't a system out there somewhere that fails. Am a little concerned that there isn't actually anything that can't handle expired passwords, but the warning is on just in case.
