I find the default password policy in exchange pretty weak (only 6 char.). Is there a way to change this password policy ?
e.g. : Minimum 1 cap, Minimum 8 letters.
Thank you !

If you wish to define complexity differently, (i.e., minimum of one upper case) you will need to implement a custom password filter. The following articles discuss creating custom password filters:
