Changing password settings for BlackBerry Administration Service authentication

If you use BlackBerry® Administration Service authentication in your organization's environment, you can change the minimum password length and the date when passwords expire to meet the requirements of your organization's security policies. By default, the minimum password length is four characters and a password expires after 365 days. If you change the minimum password length, administrators that use passwords that do not meet the new minimum length are not required to change the passwords until the passwords expire.
