RE: Active Directory password expiry notification via email??

One option you can use is to write a script or application that queries your
AD servers via ADSI or LDAP and use the pwdLastSet property on each user to
see when they last set their password. Using that, you can use the value for
each OU/policy to determine when their password will expire.

You can use Microsoft's ldp.exe tool (I think it's included in the Windows
2000/Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit downloads or elsewhere on Microsoft's
site) to get a detailed view of the LDAP properties.

Subject: Active Directory password expiry notification via email??

Hi there

I was wondering whether there would be a way of letting users know via email
that their Active Directory password will be expiring in XX days. We have
quite
a few users that connect to our network only to collect email via PDA's and
other mobile devices. So they seldom, if ever, actually log onto a windows
PC.... it would be nice to inform these users that they need to contact the
helpdeks the next day to reset their password, ect. 

We run a 2003 domain together with 2003 Exchange servers.

Any help / suggestions would be mostly appreciated.
