It doesn't make sense because 90 days is too long. A password should be
changed
at least after 30 days - if they are strong enough. A cracker has 90 days
to find out the correspondig password .....

Subject: passwords

one of the favorite subjects in my company seems to be the strength of
passwords. We force our users to change their mail password every 90 days.
Does this make sense? Why?
