Password expiry problem with Active Directory

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I would like to find a way for Active Directory to send notification mails to the users informing them that their passwords would expire soon.  This is because I created a password policy wherein the users are required to change their passwords within a number of days or else when their password expires, they could not access their mails.  Now mobile users do not the alerts.  Can you help me solve this problem?  Thank you!

Hi Kathryn_Jarvis,

For your mobile/remote user accounts, you may try this script:

The above visual basic script must be set to run on a predefined time. It is better to schedule it under the administrator’s domain account every day so that notification emails will be received by users before their passwords expire.

You can visit this site: http://compulsived.com/wordpress/2009/07/18/automated-domain-password-expiration-notifications-through-email/

for the complete details.

Based on the feedback, it works perfectly for users and computers that are not always connected and login the domain.

For the other user accounts, at default, Windows will notify them when they logon the domain so there is no worries for them.

Hope this helps.
