Re: 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.

I don't think that there is a way to do this natively but you could write a script that compares todays date with the Users PasswordExpirationDate property. If today's date is within XX days of PasswordExpirationDate then the script can send an email to the user informing them that they have to change their password
