Is there a way to create user accounts from a list.

e.g. If i wanted to create user accounts from a database of names is this possible if i first create a template with all the required permissions.  Also can an exchange mail box be created in the process?

Thanks.

Stu.

Addusers.exe from the Resource kit will allow the bulk creation of accounts from a file.  As for permissions, cacls.exe should help.  Exchange depends on the version.

In that case, all user accounts should have the mailbox automatically created for them if you do the import on the Exchange server.
