comment Policy in /etc/pam.d/password-auth is not being enforced
That did it - /etc/pam.d/passwd points to /etc/pam.d/system-auth. Updated my policy there and it is now being correctly implemented.

@nwildner, some improvement when I passwd as that account. I can't type a dictionary word and have to have some complexity. That said, the minlen is still not being enforced. I can enter a 9 character password, where I specified a minimum 12 character password.

Gotcha, chage -m 1 -M 30 -W 14 some_existing_account looks to be the only way of doing this. I only have 2 existing users, but for systems with a bunch this could be easily scripted.

comment Stopping postfix - are messages queued when postfix is idle?
What file or directory are queued messages stored in? I might want to review some of these prior to nuking all of them.
