Password warning alert

Hi Guys,

I am using RHEL 5 and I want to construct the script to warn me when the user passwords are about to expire.

Lets say 6 days before the expire date I should get a warning.

I do see these message when I logging to my server:
Warning: your password will expire in 6 days

How do I use these message to send alert to me via mail?

Please Help!!!!

Thanks in advance...

While a different op sys, I did find this in the history of questions posted here.
And, I am not sure if this command exists in RHEL.

How I know "last password changed". | Unix Linux Forums | HP-UX

That command seems to be a HP-UX only thing. On Redhat we have chage. root can run a command like chage --list joeblow to see joeblow's password aging info.
