Get Password Expiration Date in SQL Server 2008

SQL Server 2008 introduces a new argument called DaysUntilExpiration in the LOGINPROPERTY function, which returns the number of days until the password expires. You can use this property using the following code:

SELECT LOGINPROPERTY('sa', 'DaysUntilExpiration')

Note: If you get a null while executing the query, then either the login is not a valid login or your Operating System does not support password policies. You should run this query on a SQL Server box installed on Windows Server 2003 or later.

Similarly you can get additional login information using the following query:

SELECT name,
LOGINPROPERTY(name, 'DaysUntilExpiration') DaysUntilExpiration,
LOGINPROPERTY(name, 'PasswordLastSetTime') PasswordLastSetTime,
LOGINPROPERTY(name, 'IsExpired') IsExpired,
LOGINPROPERTY(name, 'IsMustChange') IsMustChange
From sys.sql_logins ;

Is there a way to set up automated email notification beginning 14 days prior to when a SQL Server Login password (that has "Enforce password expiration" enabled) will expire?
