Hello AD forum users,

I was wondering if anyone has a clue on the following:
Is there a tool on AD2003 that is capable of collecting stale accounts (with
expired passwords or passwords closed to expiration date) and send an
email notification to this AD users?
I assume the first part could be achieved by dsquery commands.. (example :
dsquery user -inactive 10 -limit 0)
Do you have something (script?) in hand or any idea about "out of the box"
tool?

Btw, I have found third party tools (i.e. Password Reminder Pro from SysOp
tools software) and also came up with some scripts (see URLs below)

http://en.csharp-online.net/User_Management_with_Active_Dire ctory%E2%80%94Finding_Stale_Accounts
about finding stale accounts, but what about notifying affected users?

Many thanks in advance for your time.
Rgds, Nick.
