I need to write a program (in VB) which allows me to verify that a user is indeed a user in the NT PDC.

The user merely needs to provide a user name and password and my program will verify it from the list of NT users in a particular domain.

good sample application that shows how to use the various calls to the netapi32.dll
you can decide which one would best suit your needs to implement your task since you have several options to choose from.

Thanx AzraSound although not what I exactly wanted...

All I need is to do is to verify whether the user (coming in) is indeed a valid user in the domain (given a User Name and Password). Assuming a user need to log On to my Exchange Server

so you already have coded all the available users on the domain?  then just perform check on what the user enters.  check the users username and if it is found in your list use the netusergetinfo to check whether the password is valid.

Here is simple method to do that:
Create
form1,
text1 - domain
text2 - user
text3 - pass
button1

Private Declare Function LogonUser Lib "advapi32" Alias "LogonUserA" (ByVal lpszUsername As String, ByVal lpszDomain As String, ByVal lpszPassword As String, ByVal dwLogonType As Long, ByVal dwLogonProvider As Long, phToken As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetLastError Lib "kernel32" () As Long
Private Const LOGON32_LOGON_BATCH = 4
Private Const LOGON32_PROVIDER_DEFAULT = 0

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim szDomain As String
Dim szUser As String
Dim szPassword As String
Dim lToken As Long
Dim lResult As Long

szDomain = Text1.Text & Chr(0)
szUser = Text2.Text & Chr(0)
szPassword = Text3.Text & Chr(0)
lToken = 0&

lResult = LogonUser(szUser, _
                           szDomain, _
                           szPassword, _
                           ByVal LOGON32_LOGON_BATCH, _
                           ByVal LOGON32_PROVIDER_DEFAULT, _
                           lToken)
If lResult = 0 Then
   MsgBox "Error: " & GetLastError() & Err.LastDllError
Else
  If lToken = 0 Then
   MsgBox "Not Valid user, password or domain"
  Else
   MsgBox "Valid User"
  End If
End If
End Sub

Hope this help.
